Hot melt waterproofing systems have a successful track record of over 50 years. Today, many prestigious buildings in the UK have incorporated a hot melt system, utilising its numerous benefits which include excellent life expectancy, extreme high performance and competitive installed costs.
IKO Permatec Hot Melt
The installed IKO Permatec system provides a tough, flexible, self-sealing membrane. It is suitable for use as the waterproofing layer in most new build flat roofing applications when covered by a suitable protection or when used in an inverted or green roof build up.
This hot applied membrane is manufactured from a specially formulated combination of refined bitumen, synthetic rubbers, fillers and other additives. It is melted in a purpose built machine and applied to a prepared structural deck in two nominal 3mm coats, providing a monolithic waterproofing system.
SIG Design & Technology works in partnership with IKO and has exclusive UK distribution of two IKO- produced membrane systems; IKO Armourplan PVC, and IKO Permatec hot melt.
These products can only be installed by an IKO trained and licensed contractor.
