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.
DULAS P membranes are tested in accordance with UEAtc (European Union for Technical Agreement for Construction Industry) and can be tested as per ASTM D5147 (Standard Test Method), ASTM D6164 (Standard Specification) and other relevant international standards.

- Flat and pitched roofs, balconies, terraces, etc.
- Re-roofing works to the existing structures.
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 begin. 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.
Protection: For relevant areas like Substructure waterproofing or Tanking etc, once laid, it is recommended to protect the membrane from long-term exposure, construction abuse and backfill, preferably within 24 hours. On vertical areas DUBOARD is recommended; on horizontal surfaces a minimum 25 mm thick sand-cement screed may be used.
DULAS P membranes are also suitable for partially bonded or loose laid installation.
Contact the technical department of your local distributor for advice.
PACKING AND STORAGE
DULAS P membranes are supplied in rolls of 1m X 10m and shrink wrapped on pallets. Rolls must be kept upright on pallets under shade. DULAS P pallets should not be stacked one over the other.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
There are no direct health hazards associated with DULAS P membranes. Normal precautions for hot and volatile substances should be observed during application. Refer to our MSDS sheets for advice.
