POLYFLAME - APP Modified Bitumen Waterproofing Membrane with Non-woven Polyester Re-inforcement

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

The BITUMAT proprietary waterproofing compound is formulated with select bitumen modified with Attactic Polypropylene (APP) forgreater 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 reinforced with a robust, isotropic, spun-bonded, non-woven polyester mat for increased strength, toughness and dimensional stability

The proprietary compound, the unique reinforcement, combined with famous BITUMAT process technology and rigid quality assurance procedures, yield the most reliable and dependable waterproofing membrane.

Installation Tools Required
Gas torch Knife Trowel Measuring tape Marking string Gloves

Reinforcement

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 re-sealed with a trowel to ensure seam integrity. For details of installation methods and flashing requirements, consult the relevant BITUMAT Systems Design and Installation Manual.

APPLICATION

BITUMAT POLYFLAME 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

TORCHING GUIDELINES

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 re-sealed with a trowel to ensure seam integrity. For details of installation methods and flashing requirements, consult the relevant BITUMAT Systems Design and Installation Manual.

TECHNICAL RESOURCES

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.
