- Root-proof under layer.
- It can be used either a single layer or a part of Duproof two-layer anti-root sealing system that is used for waterproofing and root proofing of green roof system.
- The membrane is used for interior garden system as well as for exterior roof garden systems as protection against root penetration.
METHOD OF APPLICATION
The application of DUPLAS P ANTI ROOT roofing and waterproofing membranes are easy and fast by the torch–on method. Clean the surface to be waterproofed and prime with Duproof Primer and allow to dry. The drying time depends on the porosity of the substrate and the environmental conditions (approx. 0.5 – 3 hrs.)
The membranes are then unrolled and aligned properly on the entire primed substrate, allowing overlap joints of 100 mm at the sides and 150 mm at the end. Roll back the membranes without disturbing the alignment. Apply gas torch on to the contact area of the membrane and the substrate. Ensure enough melting at the bottom to form sufficient melt adhesive to stick on to the substrate. While torching, forward the roll and press firmly to bond the membrane on to the substrate. Then, smoothen out seams by means of a rounded trowel. This system of application can be used on concrete, concrete blocks, bricks, foam concrete, fibre cement board and steel substrates. Care must be taken when torch bonding with heat sensitive substrates.
The APP modified sheet membrane is versatile and flexible that can be applied using pour and roll application method and cold bond applied method. For technical instruction refer to Duproof Application System.

PACKING AND STORAGE
DUPLAS P ANTI ROOT membranes are supplied in rolls of 1m X 10m; shrink wrapped on pallets. Rolls must be kept upright on pallets under shade.DUPLAS P ANTI ROOT pallets should not be stacked one over the other. The rolls have to be stored vertically and protected against moisture and extreme heat. Prior to application in cold season, store at least 12 hours free from frost.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
There are no direct health hazards associated withDUPLAS P ANTI ROOT membranes. Normal precautions for hot and volatile substances should be observed during application. Refer to our MSDS sheets for advice.
