Stirling Lloyd is proud to announce that its Eliminator Bridge Deck Waterproofing system has been awarded a European Technical Assessment (ETA), number ETA-15/0362 , from the European Organisation for Technical Assessments (EOTA) through the BBA. The ETA is based on the testing requirements as set out in European Technical Approval Guideline (ETAG) 033.
The ETA confirms that Eliminator has been tested and meets the very latest, high-level European requirements that are specific to the waterproofing of bridge decks.
As well as confirming the effectiveness of Stirling Lloyd’s advanced polymer technology, Eliminator’s ETA and Factory Production Control (FCP2+) Certification, which includes audits of production processes, QA/QC testing and full traceability of raw materials through to the finished product allows for the Eliminator System to be CE marked.
Clients, specifiers and contractors in EU Members States can be confident when selecting Eliminator that it fully complies with the EU’s design, installation and performance requirements. The CE Mark against the Eliminator’s ETA provides assurances that the product will perform to consistently high standards, helping to bring greater quality to the construction industry.
Dr Frank Swallow, technical director at Stirling Lloyd who oversees all research and development and was heavily involved in the assessment, commented:
“During the assessment, BBA technical staff oversaw a large number of comprehensive tests on Eliminator, testing key features and validating the test reports. We were confident that our product would come through the assessment with flying colours, as all our products are put through rigorous in-house testing to ensure they always exceed industry standards. The attainment of the internationally recognised ETA certification through the BBA demonstrates Stirling Lloyd’s commitment to high quality product innovation.”
