methods of adhering roofing systems often require
temperatures in excess of 500 - 800°c using gas torches, burners under
bitumen boilers and hot air or hot gas guns. This can lead to a serious
risk of fire and often increased insurance premiums.
Liquid Plastics Limited. have developed a complete built-up
system which is completely cold applied thus eliminating any risk of
fire. Once in place the system achieves highest fire ratings and
provides seamless, waterproof protection for up to 25 years.
Decostik, Liquid Plastics Limiteds
new cold fusion bonded roofing
adhesive, exhibits excellent adhesion due to its ability to penetrate
fibrous substrates and surface irregularities in non-porous substrates
forming an intimate cold fusion bond. The new cold applied formulation
exceeds the highest industry standards for roofing systems and avoids
the problems associated with hot works, such as a high fire risk.
Liquid Plastics Limited (LPL) is one of
the world's leading
manufacturers of specialist surface coatings and seamless flooring
systems. Established in 1963 in Preston, England, the firm has
manufacturing facilities in South Africa and a subsidiary company in
Belgium, Pentagon Plastics n.v., which itself has a sales office in

Electrocoating is a method of applying
various types of coating to
electrically conductive surfaces. The required coating constituents
are dispersed in water and contained in a special bath. After cleaning
and any other necessary preparations, the parts to be coated are
immersed in the bath and the coating is applied by the action of
electric current. After coating to the required thickness the parts are
removed from the bath and excess coating is then rinsed off and
recycled. The applied coating is hardened to achieve its performance
High material utilisation - only the parts that need coating are coated
Controllable and consistent thickness enables accurate costing
Ease of automation enables high production rates
Complex shapes easily coated
Engineering tolerances maintained by controlled consistent thickness.
Versatile decorative ability combined with high performance.
High Utilisation efficiency means high material conservation
Water-based application minimises Health & Safety concerns.
Minimised emissions, low VOC.
The Key Is Conformity

The Company was formed in 1988 as the
result of a management buyout by
the company's Joint Managing Directors, Richard Slater and David
Baggaley. They took over the assets of the original paint making
company, which owned an old woollen mill (c. 1860) in the West Riding
town of Heckmondwike, and have developed these into one of the
country's leading completely independent paint manufacturers.
Although Norver Paints manufactures for
both the domestic and
industrial markets, most of its products are oil based and emulsion
paints for domestic use, many of them manufactured as 'own label'
products, a practice which is becoming prevalent throughout a wide
range of industries. Products are also sold under its own trade names
of "NORVER", "WEATHERLINE" (grass marking paint) and
Customers are high street retailers,
merchants, supermarket chains and D.I.Y. independents and multiples
throughout the British Isles. They also export to EC countries, Africa
and the Middle East. They have their own sales force and a network of
agents at home and abroad. Distribution contracts with an efficient
transport company enable them to deliver one pallet to a small retailer
or thousands of litres to a major multiple, reliably and on time.
Paint making involves the use of volatile
and hazardous chemicals and
legislation in the fields of Health, Safety and Environmental
Protection is voluminous, complex, and ever changing and requires a
considerable amount of time and financial resource to comply.

foresee a continued growth of the company into the 21st Century".

Leigh's Paints are the largest
independent manufacturer of high
performance coatings and passive fire protection products in the UK,
and have over 140 years experience providing coatings solutions to a
wide variety of industries and supplying major construction companies
Through continuous innovation, and a
commitment to the environment,
Leigh's offer a full range of protective coatings for the most exacting
conditions with full technical support.
Founded in Bolton in 1860 by William and
Joshua Leigh - the W and J in
the Company name - Leigh's initially owed its prosperity to its
building and property interests; paint remained a sideline until the
turn of the century.
It was left to the second generation of
Leigh's, William Hamer and
Herbert, to set the paint business on a firm footing and it was Herbert
Leigh in particular, who concentrated on developing 'ready-to-use'
paint for ships, and the famous Leigh's Marine White was born in 1924.
In 1929, Philip Leigh-Bramwell entered
the business, the same year as
the Company's well known Hawk and Trumpet logo was first registered.
Since those early days, the company's paint operation and markets have
grown substantially through natural evolution and strategically planned
acquisitions, both in the UK and with the formation of joint venture
manufacturing companies elsewhere in the world.
Today, after nearly 140 years, Brian
Leigh-Bramwell is the latest
chairman, and fourth generation of the Leigh family. Under his
leadership, Leigh's has become recognised as a leading supplier of
specialist coatings and paints for the protection of steel and other
surfaces both within the UK and abroad.
The Company has achieved this position by
striving for the highest
standards of quality, integrity and service to its customers. Leigh's
is now the biggest independent paint manufacturer in the UK.
Leigh's intend to go from strength to
strength as a consequence of our
strong market led culture, and a commitment to globalisation. Our
determination to innovate, by working jointly with our customers to
produce exactly the products and services needed is the cornerstone on
which we will continue to strengthen our reputation for technical
