Restorative Techniques are not just offering their newly launched VorTech system, the latest development in the original Jos gentle swirling vortex lineage, but also a range of chemicals and other products for caring for the fabric of buildings.
Restorative Techniques have a strong focus on using their technical expertise in understanding the effects chemical products and individual formulations can have on a material.
They believe all suppliers, especially those who make their products available for use on the wide variations of substrates in historic buildings, should understand the products so they can advise on the hows¹ and whys¹ on a given surface.
By fully supporting both customers and specifiers through the decision making process and by helping them select the right product for the right surface and application, Restorative Techniques say a successful outcome is more likely. It also means less time and money is spent finding the right products for a particular project.
Restorative Techniques are offering a wide range of chemical products that are being marketed under the ŒRestorative¹ banner with names that take the Ronseal approach to naming by doing exactly what it says on the tin.
Restorative Copper Stain Poultice¹, for example, does not leave much doubt about what it is for. Paint softeners are called Restorative Paint Softener Acrylic Types¹ and Restorative Paint Softener Polyurethane/Oil Types¹.
Alongside the expected poultices and paint softeners, Restorative Techniques are also holding in stock a variety of clays and pulp components for contractors and conservators who wish to make their own poultices traditionally used by the stone industry.
There are occasions when a clay-based poultice is ideal, yet masonry companies do not usually want enough of it to make it economical to buy. If they do buy a large amount they have nowhere to store it. So Restorative Techniques are buying such poultice components in wholesale quantities to sell on in smaller quantities to masonry and conservation companies. They will also supply recipe mixes for the products on request.
In the Restorative¹ brand so far there is: Latex Cleaning Poultice; Paint Softener Acrylic Types; Paint Softener Polyurethane/Oil Types; Copper Stain Poultice; Iron Stain Poultice; Sacrificial Wax; Marker Pen Poultice; EDTA Cleaning Gel; Exterior Surface Cleaner; Sepiolite Clay; Attapulgite Clay; Bentonite Clay; Paper Pulp (Arbocel).
