Prompt natural quick-setting cement: water feature waterproofed!

An attractive, innovative water feature in Saint Rémy de Provence  has been waterproofed inside and out with Vicat’s Prompt quick-setting cement.

Date of the news: Novembre 2011

 

The La Baignade water feature in France’s sunny south, was landscaped by Marc Féraud who found inspiration in the outdoor laundry facility where the washerwomen of old used to scrub. The result of more than fifteen years’ experience, its cascading clean, pure water is treated naturally by plants. It called for waterproofing inside and out with Vicat’s Prompt quick-setting mortar, for the challenge was to reconcile a range of different parameters: quick set, preparation in a concrete mixer, application over large areas, and the guarantee of impermeability. Capped off by the certainty of an attractive finish incorporating run-molded copings. Technical support from Vicat was vital in ensuring masterful use of the product.
