DUPLAS G membranes are used
- As a first layer in multi-layer roof waterproofing systems.
- In waterproofing of substructures such as concrete footings, tie beams, neck columns and below grade walls.
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.
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 protection board is recommended; on horizontal surfaces a minimum 25 mm thick sand-cement screed may be used.
Contact the technical department of your local distributor for advice.
