Technical Data Sheet

DUPLAS AG is a high performance heat resistant, waterproofing sheet membrane, reinforced by a tough non-woven glass mat to provide excellent dimensional stability. The mat is thoroughly impregnated and coated both sides with APP modified bitumen.

The plastomeric nature of the synthetically modified coating is designed as a homogeneous mixture of a special bitumen and high quality type virgin APP polymer that ensures high product quality and outstanding performance. The top surface of the membrane is covered with special tough heat reflective Aluminum foil and the bottom is laminated with fast melting Polyethylene foil.

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 5-6m²/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.

The use of APP modified bitumen provides excellent flexibility in laying conditions, even at high ambient temperature, and because of its higher softening point, the installation is made by torch-application.
