Torch On Waterproofing
Torch-on waterproofing membrane is a widely used waterproofing solution in the construction industry, applied using a heat torch. The heat melts the bitumen, allowing it to be spread evenly across the surface and forming a waterproof barrier. It is known for its durability and reliability, particularly in applications such as flat roofs, podium decks, and other areas requiring a waterproof barrier. The membrane is composed of a layer of bitumen reinforced with either polyester or fiberglass. There are several types of torch-on waterproofing membranes available, each with unique properties and characteristics. These include SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) modified bitumen, known for its durability and flexibility; APP (atactic polypropylene) modified bitumen, known for its high resistance to UV rays, low temperature flexibility and long-term durability; self-adhesive, which is easy to install and ideal for flat roofing applications; and fiberglass reinforced, which provides additional strength and durability. The appropriate type should be selected based on the specific requirements of the project.
