Waterproofing

Bituminous waterproofing systems are designed to protect residential and commercial buildings. Bitumen (asphalt or coal-tar pitch) is a mixed substance made up of organic liquids that are highly sticky, viscous, and waterproof. These systems are sometimes used to construct roofs, in the form of rolls.

A bituminous waterproofing membrane is used for reinforced concrete roof waterproofing. This waterproofing membrane comes on site in the form of rolls manufactures and packed in the factory properly sealed.

 

The specifications and safety manuals of this membranes provided by manufacturer should be read before installation process.

 

Fire safety and prevention is the most important while using this membrane. All inflammable materials from roofs to be removed and good roofing practices should be followed. The bituminous waterproofing membranes are unfolded on the site and laid firmly on surface with tar-based adhesives using blowtorches.

 

A layer of bituminous water proof membrane is laid over the structural roof which acts as a shield against the seepage of water onto the roof. Roof tiles & membrane is applied over the filler material laid to slope to pass the flow of water into drains.

 

A proper slope is necessary to allow the water to flow steadily to drains. These membranes have 2 to 4 mm thick water proof materials. Membrane should be flexible with elongation to cover any small cracks, strong, chemical & UV resistant, flexible enough to take any shape over which it is laid.
