Verified by manufacturer 6 months ago

MD

Cordek Ltd Variant:

Tri-Gas Membrane is a high performance gas membrane for use in situations where resistance to methane, carbon dioxide and/or radon gas is required.

Jump to:
+44 (0)1403 799600 www.cordek.com

Application

Generally used within construction applications, predominantly within the foundation design.

Description

A high performance gas membrane for use in situations where resistance to methane, carbon dioxide and/ or radon gases is required. The multilayer 0.4 mm thick membrane includes an ultralow permeability aluminium foil core encapsulated between a number of additional low density polyethylene (LDPE) layers and a reinforcing grid to form a single sheet membrane.


Features and benefits:

  • Resistance properties with low permeability to ground gases including methane, carbon dioxide and radon.
  • Provides additional damp proofing protection to the structure (no requirement for a separate DPM).
  • Reinforced membrane construction with high resistance to both puncturing and tearing.
  • Complies with relevant industry codes and guidance including CIRIA and BS 8485:2015+A1:2019.
