dulas AP

Technical Data Sheet

DULAS AP is a high quality polymer-rich SBS modified bituminous torch-on membrane with a reinforcement core of spun-bound non-woven polyester mat, used as a capping layer in waterproofing system.The DULAS range belongs to the Elastoproof group of membranes produced using a special grade of bitumen modified with virgin SBS polymer. The polymer-rich mixture is used to saturate and coat both sides of the polyester mat to the required thickness of the membranes. The top surface of the membrane is laminated with a high quality aluminum foil, which protects the membrane from weathering, UV rays and the bottom surface covered by torchable polyethylene foil.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • High mechanical properties: good movement accommodation; resistant to tear and puncture
  • High resistance to hydraulic pressure: provides an impermeable and low absorption layer.
  • Wide temperature tolerance: stable in tropical climates; resistant to thermal ageing and shock.
  • High chemical resistance: withstands effects of salts and other corrosive agents in soil and water.
  • Versatile: available with a range of reinforcements, thickness and surface finishes for use in variety of applications.

To order specify finish, reinforcement and thickness e.g. DULAS AP-180 4mm for 180g/m² polyester reinforcement and 4mm thick sheet membrane with Alkali proof Aluminum foil on the top.

USES

  • As a capping layer in waterproofing systems.
  • Where reflectivity is required.
  • As a base flashing over the parapet.

METHOD OF APPLICATION

Surfaces onto which the membrane is to be applied must be sound, clean and dry. Dust, loose material and protrusions must be removed and cracks, holes etc made good.

Priming: Apply one coat of DUPRIME solvent based bituminous primer to all surfaces at 5-6 m²/lit and allow to dry. Primed surfaces must be covered within the same day. If left exposed for longer periods, clean and re-prime before applying the membrane.

Membrane Application: Position the rolls carefully with the correct orientation before the torching operation begins. Heat the lower surface of the rolls with a propane gas torch and unroll as the bitumen begins to melt. Maintain minimum 100 mm side laps and 150 mm end laps between rolls, staggering the joints where possible. All seams must be heat sealed from the top to ensure watertight laps.

PACKING AND STORAGE

DULAS AP membranes are supplied in rolls of 1mX10m, shrink wrapped on pallets. Rolls must be kept upright on pallets under shade. DULAS AP pallets should not be stacked one over the other.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

There are no direct health hazards associated with DULAS AP membranes. Normal precautions for hot and volatile substances should be observed during application. Refer to our MSDS sheets for advice.
