  • What does it do?

    ElastasealTM Roof Waterproofing Systems have been developed to solve the problems associated with the long-term waterproofing of flat roofs, pitched Roofs and Gutters.

    They provide flexible, durable, long-lasting protection for up to 25 years before first full maintenance, depending upon which system is specified.

    The systems provide a cold liquid applied, breathable, seamless finish, which moves with the roof and allows vapour release from the existing substrate.

    When used in combination with the appropriate insulation and finishing materials, an inverted waterproofing system can be easily created, allowing for heavily trafficked and decorative roof finishes to be designed. The inverted roof design will enhance the waterproofing systems expected life as the system is covered and hence protected from exposure to the elements. Theses inverted roofs are designed to allow compliance with the building regulations (Part L) and increase the thermal efficiency of the building, which in turn reduces carbon emissions.

  • What does the system include?

    Primer

    Optional for certain substrates.

    Embedment

    ElastasealTM embedment coat is the base Coat waterproofing layer reinforced with ElastamatTM

    glass fibre mat.

    Topcoat

    Use as necessary to complete the system. Used on termination details exposed to UV above the insulation level.

    The system is then overlaid with an appropriate insulation board system, filtration layer and then the required finishing material, e.g. stone or block paving (support pads may be needed). Ballast may be used around the perimeter details or near plant and equipment.

  • Where can it be used?

    Refurbishment

    ElastasealTM can be used over many types of traditional roofing materials such as:

    Felt, asphalt, bitumen, asbestos cement sheet, fibre cement sheet, concrete, single ply membranes, profiled metal sheets etc.

    New build

    Used in combination with steel, concrete, screeded or timber constructed roofs.
