The rolls must be stored horizontally and parallel (not
crossed) and never stacked mroe than 6 rools high. The
membranes must always be stored protected against weathering.
--> Waterproofing of roofs trafficable and non trafficable,
both traditional and inverted.
--> Waterproofing of foundations, basements and underground
--> Waterproofing of swimming pools, tanks, and reservoirs.
Instruction for Use
In general, the usual procedures for continuous water
proofing are followed, and application should be carried
out by specialized personnel.
Polymeric Plastifelt can be applied either fully bonded
or loose laid, depending on the protection and slope.
Ploymeric Plastifelt is applied torched
on, using a propane or butane gas torch.
The substrate receiving the polymeric plastifelt membrane
must be firm, dry, clean and free from badly adhered
materials. It must also be even and smooth, without
any elements that should damage the membrane.
Application of the Membrane
To adhere the membrane to the surface of the substrate
three procedures can be used
--> Loose laid
--> Preming with asphaltic paint, and then flame
--> Hot polymeric bitumer.
Overlaps between membranes are then carred
out, with a minimum width of 8 to 10 cm, melting the
bitumen with a torch to ensure correct adherence.
The membranes are staggered in sucha away
that four membranes are never overlapped at one point.
A quality exceeding the surface to be waterproofed of
between 12 and 15% is recommended.
Two applications can apply approximately
between 100 and 400 m2 per day, depending on the complexity
of job to be carred out.
The Added Advantages, when used for Canal
Lining Purpose are :
--> Prevention of canal erosion,
subsequent elimination of maintenance costs.
--> Reduced power consumption for pumping by way
of reduction in friction losses.
--> Elimination of water losses caused by rodents
and river carbs.
