Ventilation membranes
ARCO

DESCRIPTION

The bituminous membrane ARCO is a waterproofing membrane obtained from oxidized asphalt  and inert  materials. The membrane is reinforced by a non–woven polyester  (P), or glass fiber tissue (V) .The upper surface of the membrane is protected  by polyethylene film (F) Alternatively   quartz sand can be used.

The lower surface of the membrane ARCO is protected by a plastic film easily torched.  

 

PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Bituminous compound

  • absolute watertightness

Non-woven polyester

  • good tensile strength and elongation
  • tear resistant
  • resistant to static loading

Glass fiber tissue

  • excellent  dimensional resistance

 

PACKAGING

The roll dimensions are 10m long and 1m wide (other rolls dimensions are available on request).The rolls are supplied on wooden pallets and are held in position by a heat shrunk  plastic bag.

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

Surface preparation

The surface must be smooth ,clean and dry ,free from dust,oils , grease  and other  debris

The surface  is then  treated with  bituminous primer (EXTRALAC PRIMER  at a consumption of 0.2-0.25 kg/m²) or with elastomeric bituminous primer (ELASTOLAC  at a consumption of 0.3-06 kg/m²) and allowed to dry at least for 24 h before the application of the membrane.

As an  alternative  bituminous emulsion EXTRACOAT can be used  at a consumption of 0.5-1 Kg/m² or EXTRACOAT RUBBER  at a consumption of  0.5-1 kg/m².

Application

The membrane is unrolled on the dry primer  coating and aligned before it is rolled back.

The membrane is unrolled again while the lower surface is heated and especially the primer by means of a propane gas torch, until the polyethylene  film  starts to melt, ensuring  the adhesion  of the membrane to the substrate.

Side laps must be at least 10 cm and end laps 15 cm. When the bonding of the roll is completed we torch the overlaps taking care not to weaken them by extreme heating and by means of a trowel we press to achieve good bonding.If we want to strengthen up the overlaps or other sensitive points on the roof (ventilators,drains,upstands,etc), we can apply bituminous sealants Masticgum No1 or Masticgum No2 (for horizontal or vertical surfaces respectively) which should prodect from  sun radiation with one or more layers of  bituminous aluminium paint ALUCOAT.

In a multi layer system the first layer can be applied as loose laid, partially attached or fully adhered. The subsequent layers must always be fully adhered.

During the application care must be taken so that the overlaps of the subsequent layers to not coincide with the overlaps of the previous layer.
