GLASFLAME - APP Modified Membrane with Non-woven Glassfibre Re-inforcement


BITUMAT GLASFLAME is a superior, high performance, pre-fabricated, modified bitumen membrane, consisting of proprietary waterproofing compound, re-inforced with spunbonded non-woven glassfibre mat.

The BITUMAT proprietary waterproofing compound is formulated with select bitumen modified with Attactic Polypropylene (APP) for greater elasticity, flexibility, and further enhanced with a blend of Thermoplastic Polymer (TP) and Elastoplastic Copolymer (EPC) for high heat resistance, greater elongation and low temperature flexibility. The compound is then stabilized with opaque Mineral Stabilizers (MS) for impact resistance, Ultra-Violet (UV) resistance and durability.

The superior waterproofing compound is re-inforced with a strong, dimensionally stable, rot proof & spun-bonded glass fiber, which is further re-inforced with continuous strands of glass threads for increased strength. The proprietary compound, the unique reinforcement, combined with the famous BITUMAT process technology and rigid quality assurance procedures, yields a very reliable and dependable waterproofing membrane.


BITUMAT GLASFLAME is a universal, all purpose membrane, excellent in a single layer or multilayer roofing systems, underground waterproofing, multi-story car parks, pond lining, irrigation canals lining, swimming pools or any structure that requires high performance waterproofing. It is most suited as the first layer in a multi-layer system.


BITUMAT GLASFLAME is available in four basic finishes:

1. Black smooth finish with polyethylene surfaces for covered applications.

2. Coloured granule surfacing for exposed applications.

3. Embossed aluminium foil surfacing for exposed applications.

4. Black fine sanded upper surface for coated applications.


In addition to stringent regular tests by BITUMAT laboratory, our products are tested periodically by Independent Laboratories.


BITUMAT GLASFLAME complies with the requirements and tolerance levels of UEAtc (European Union of Technical Agreement) MOAT 27-1983 and MOAT 30-1984 and CGSB (Canadian General Standards Board) 37-GP-56M - July 1980.

BITUMAT GLASFLAME is installed by torch welding method, loose-laid or fully bonded to substrate. When loose-laid, only overlaps are bonded together. Peripheres and protrusions are sealed according to specifications.


The underside of the membrane should be torched just enough to superficially melt the bitumen. Excessive heating may damage the re-inforcement. Overlaps should be re-heated from the top and resealed with a trowel to ensure seam integrity. For details of installation methods and flashing requirements, consult the relevant BITUMAT Systems Design and Installation Manual.


Bitumat was founded in 1984 but its roots go back to 1975 when the founders became involved in the roofing waterproofing industry as dealer and applicator in Saudi Arabia for a major manufacturer from the U.S.A.
