TAL proudly supplied product and expertise in support of the Carte Blanche Making a Difference Trust’s Tygerberg Hospital: Phase 1 & 2 NICU & PICU Projects. The two specialised units were officially handed over in August 2022.

Vapour barrier and floor levelling for Phase 1

In the first phase, the floor levels varied significantly across the space. Using TAL Slabpatch Flowable, a fast-setting micro concrete, the floors were re-profiled before the application of TAL Vapourstop HB. This moisture tolerant vapour barrier is designed to protect the installation from potential high moisture vapour emission rates (MVER) in the substrate and prevent debonding of the final floor covering. To ensure the smooth and level surface required for this type of installation, TAL Screedmaster, a rapid-setting self-levelling and smoothing compound was applied.

Quick repair and reprofiling for Phase 2

In the second phase, the floor levels were more consistent, requiring only isolated repairs with TALCEM, a rapid-setting cement designed for installations where curing times of conventional (OPC) materials cannot be adhered to. A 10mm layer of TAL Screedmaster was applied to re-profile the floor levels and achieve the smooth and level surface required for the installation of a vinyl floor covering.
