Protecto-Board Bituminous Membranes

Application

  • Permanent protection to horizontal and vertical waterproofing membranes against damage caused by site traffic, mechanical damage and ground settlement.
  • Temporary protection to areas which need to be protected against following trades; the boards can be taken up at a later stage if required.

Description

Bituminous, semi-flexible protection board for use in horizontal and vertical applications to prevent damage to waterproofing membranes.


Features and benefits:

  • Made from a mixture of fibres saturated with at least 75% bitumen, covered one side with a polyethylene film.
  • Polyethylene film avoids the bitumen bleeding onto other surfaces.
  • Tough and durable and can withstand concrete pour.
  • Completely rot-proof and will not delaminate even when immersed in water.
  • Can be butted together and fixed by either spot bonding or fixing the edges with heavy duty bitumen tape.
  • Can be heat bonded on the open side, providing very good adhesion to vertical surfaces.
  • Easily cut and shaped around corners and details.
  • Available in two thicknesses.
