DULAS PGmembranes 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
QUALITY ASSURANCE & WARRANTY
Duproof is an ISO 9001 Quality Assured company, and DULAS PG membranes carry a material warranty against any manufacturing defects.
TYPE AND FINISH
|Nominal weight||[kg / m2]||4.5||5.5|
|Dimensions (length x width)||[m]||10 x 1|
|Coating||SBS – modified bitumen|
|Type of carrier||Composite of 180/200/250g/m² spun bond polyester mat (P) and 50/60 g/m² glass fiber (G)|
|Top||Polymeric foil (F) or Sand (Q) or Slate (S) or (QQ) for both side sand surface|
|Bottom||Printed Polyethylene foil|
To order specify finish, reinforcement and thickness e.g. DULAS FPG-260 4mm for foil finish, 200g/m² polyester and 60g/m² glass reinforcement and 4 mm thick sheet membrane.
- In the construction of single layer waterproofing system of flat roofs and pitched roofs and in infrastructure applications.
- As a loose laid membrane over slip-sheet with side and end laps torched or hot air welded.
- In regions where deformation stress from roof structures are expected and is used in underground reservoirs, tunnels and engineering constructions.
Ideal for new and re-roofing projects, waterproofing on steel decks and wood support decks.
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 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 roll 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.
Protection: 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 are recommended; on horizontal surfaces a minimum 25 mm thick sand-cement screed may be used. DULAS PG 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 PGmembranes are supplied in rolls of 1m X 10m & shrink wrapped on pallets. Rolls must be kept upright on pallets under shade. Pallets should not be stacked one over the other.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
There are no direct health hazards associated with DULAS PG membranes. Normal precautions for hot and volatile substances should be observed during application. Refer to our MSDS sheets for advice.
