DUPLAS HP 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 D6222 (Standard Specification) and other relevant international standards.
QUALITY ASSURANCE & WARRANTY
Duproof is an ISO 9001 Quality Assured company, and DUPLAS HP membranes carry a material warranty against any manufacturing defects.
TYPE AND FINISH
|Nominal weight||Kg / m2||3.5||4.5||5.5|
|Dimensions (length x width)||[m]||10 x 1|
|Coating||APP – modified bitumen|
|Carrier||180/200/250 g/m2 polyester mat (P)|
|Top surface||Polymeric foil(F) or Sand(Q) or Slate(S) or(QQ) for both side sand surface|

To order specify finish, reinforcement and thickness e.g. DULAS HFP 200 4mm for foil finish, 200g/m2 polyester reinforcement and 4 mm thick sheet membrane.
DUPLAS HP membranes are used where a tough, high quality waterproofing system is needed, such as
- Substructure waterproofing in buildings and civil engineering works (if specified).
- External surfaces of underground water reservoirs, pools and other liquid retaining structures (if specified).
- Floors of wet rooms in all type of buildings.
- 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. If used as Slated surface for exposed application additional surface protection is not required.
Protection: If used in Substructure and underground tanks 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.
DUPLAS HP membranes are also suitable for partially bonded or loose laid installation. Contact the technical department of your local distributor for advice.
PACKING AND STORAGE
DUPLAS HP membranes are supplied in rolls of 1m X 10m; shrink wrapped on pallets. Rolls must be kept upright on pallets under shade. DUPLAS HP pallets should not be stacked over each other.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
There are no direct health hazards associated with DUPLAS HP membranes. Normal precautions for hot and volatile substances should be observed during application. Refer to our MSDS sheets for advice.
