Pennywell Industrial Estate, Sunderland Coating systems used: Raincoat™ Cladding Finish,

The exterior refurbishment of an industrial unit in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, has been completed with Raincoat Cladding Finish, a specialist coating system from Tor Coatings.

The unit – on Pennywell Industrial Estate – is owned by UK Land Estates and was fully refurbished by contractor FWR to Tor’s specification. The project was managed by DTZ.

The client was looking for a cost-effective, high performance, coating system that would completely revitalise the exterior of the vacant unit, making it attractive to potential tenants.

Raincoat Cladding Finish was the perfect solution. The product is specifically designed for the refurbishment, decoration, protection and maintenance of weathered vertical sheet cladding, roof edge trims and cappings, and roof cladding systems.

Raincoat Cladding Finish is a single pack product which meant no time was wasted with on-site mixing. The high build product can be applied in a single coat application and offers long lasting performance.

The product is made from complex modified solvented acrylic which gives it excellent weathering properties and means it can withstand panel flexing without cracking along profile lines.

The semi-gloss finish coating system was used to refurbish the vertical and roof cladding. Torlife 2 Pack Finish, Tor Alkyd Undercoat and Tor Alkyd Gloss were used on the doors, roof, grills and roller shutters – and the perimeter metal fencing. Once applied the system provides an ‘as new’ finish.

Tor Coatings is a leading manufacturer of protective coatings for buildings and offers a complete service from survey through to installation and aftercare. To find your local representative please call
