KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR from Kemper System was chosen to provide liquid waterproof protection to the iconic Selfridges in Oxford Street. The existing asphalt roof had deteriorated into a poor state of repair, with numerous leaks affecting the fabric and structure of the building.
KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR was specified – the solvent-free wet-on-wet cold liquid applied waterproofing – which being solvent free makes it highly suited to applications such as this where even
temporary closure due to solvent fumes given off by other systems is not an option.
Following preparation of the existing asphalt, the roof was primed using KEMPERTEC® D-Primer and then waterproofed with KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR.
This 2-component, polyurethanebased system incorporates a reinforced polyester fleece which can be cut and formed on site, meaning that the numerous details, upstands and penetrations (typically the most vulnerable part of any roof waterproofing system) were handled quickly and easily.
This not only saved on both installation time and costs, but because the terminations are fully bonded without the need for mechanical fixings, the roof waterproofing system is entirely seamless.
