DESCRIPTION

Mineral Surfaced  bituminous waterproofing membrane

Bituplus G 4140 is a high performance polymer modified bituminous waterproofing membrane, surfaced with reflective natural color slates to provide maximum protection against UV. The presence of the slates provides a mechanical protection against light foot traffic and occasional maintenance as well as offering an aesthetic surface. It is an ideal membrane for roofing and exposed applications where it can be placed on top of the existing surface and providing an economical and efficient solution to leaking roofs.

PROPERTIES

  • High resistance to positive water & vapor pressure
  • Good heat resistance
  • Good dimensional stability under tension
  • High puncture and fatigue resistance
  • High tensile and tear strengths
  • Resistant to water borne chemicals

SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

The surface shall be cleaned thoroughly of all contaminants like dust, traces of curing compound, oil and grease. All surface imperfections, protrusions, structurally unsound and friable concrete must be removed and repaired.

PRIMING

Apply Polyprime SB* (solvent based primer) @4-6 m²/L to a clean, smooth and dry surface by brush, roller or spray. Allow the primer to dry prior to the application of the membrane. The primer promotes the adhesion between the membrane and the concrete surface.

ALIGNMENT

Start the installation of all membrane plies from the low point or drains, so that the flow of water is over or parallel to the plies, but never against the laps. All overlaps at the membrane seams shall be installed so as to have "up" slope laps over "down" slope laps. Begin membrane application by unrolling the roll of Bituplus G 4140 membrane and aligning the side laps. Side overlaps should be a minimum of 100 mm and the end overlaps 150mm.

TORCHING

Bituplus G 4140 membrane is installed by using a cylinder fed propane gas torch. Use of hand-held roofing torch is recommended as it affords a good control. Begin torching the embossed polyethylene side of the rolled portion of the membrane. As the membrane is heated the embossing starts to melt away exposing a shiny bitumen  surface. Roll forward the membrane and press firmly with the boot or roller against the substrate to bond well. The propane flame should be moved from side to side and up the lap edge while the membrane is slowly unrolled and adhered to the underlying surface.

Caution: Do not over torch the  membrane as this will expose the reinforcement and cause damage to it.

SEALING

Heat both the overlaps and use round tipped trowel to seal the overlap. Adequate heat is confirmed when a uniform flow of melted bitumen compound flows evenly in a bead that oozes from the applied membrane’s edges. Excess compound should be pressed into the seam using a heated trowel. Any un-bonded areas must be lifted and re-torched.

UPSTAND

Flashing details are accomplished using cut pieces of Bituplus G 4140 membrane in combination with appropriate prefabricated flashing components. The same side lap and end lap rules apply to flashing details as to field membrane. An appropriate flashing membrane (mineral surface membrane) shall be lapped with the base membrane and taken up on the parapet wall and tucked into a groove cut into the concrete. The grooves will be sealed with a suitable mastic sealant (Bitumastic)*.
