Instruction for Use
- Deck surfaces must be dry, clean and free from sharp projections such as nail heads and concrete nibs.
- When bonding the substrate should be prepared using a primer; either Impridan 100, CURIDAN, MAXDAN or MAXDAN CAUCHO at the recommended rate prior to installation of the waterproofing system.
- Where the membranes are adhered to insulation boards, the resistance to wind uplift will be dependent on the cohesive strength of the insulation and the method by which it is secured to the roof deck. This should be taken into account when the insulation material is selected.
- At falls in excess of 5º (1:11) precautions against slippage, and requirements for mechanical fixing should be observed.
- The membrane may be laid in conditions normal to roofing work and must not be laid in rain, snow or heavy fog, nor if the temperature falls below 5ºC, unless precautions against condensation have been taken.
- The roofing layers must always be installed with staggered overlaps and in such a manner that no counter-seams in the direction of the outlets are made.
- Attachment of reinforced bituminous membrane roofing maybe achieved by full bonding, by partial bonding or loose laid (ballasted); the choice should depend upon the type of substrate and the required resistance to wind uplift pressure.
- The first layer is installed over the substrate, full bonded, partially bonded, or loose laid (ballasted).
- Fully bonded torch-applied membranes should only be used with non-combustible substrates and with surfaces designed to enable the torch application of subsequent layers.
- It is possible to install a torch-receivable first layer in hot bitumen, and then torch apply the second or capping sheet, which should be specifically designed for torching. Bonding is achieved by melting the lower surface by torching and pressing the membrane down. Care must be taken not to overheat the membrane.
- The first layer is installed with side laps of 60 mm and end laps of 75 mm. The top layer/cap sheet is laid over the first layer in the same direction, and fully bonded. The top layer/cap sheets are installed with side laps for the mineral surfaced membranes determined by the selvedge edge and for sanded or plastified top layers a minimum of 75 mm and end laps 100 mm wide.
- When partially bonded either a layer of GLASDAN 800 P PERFORADO or other suitable venting layer is loose-laid across the substrate edge to edge. The first layer is fully bonded over the venting layer in the direction with side laps of 80 mm and end laps of 75 mm. The top layer/cap sheet is laid over the first layer in the same direction, and fully bonded. The top layer/cap sheets are installed with side laps for the mineral surfaced membranes determined by the selvedge edge and for sanded or plastified top layers a minimum of 75 mm and end laps 100 mm wide. Loose-laid is possible in ballasted systems.
- A separating layer is loose-laid over the substrate to act with overlaps of 100 mm. The first layer is loose-laid over the separation layer with side laps of 60 mm and end laps of 80 mm wide. The laps are sealed by torch welding. The top layer is laid over the first layer in the same direction, and fully bonded. The top layer/cap sheets are installed with side laps for the mineral surfaced membranes determined by the selvedge edge and for sanded or plastified top layers a minimum of 75 mm and end laps 100 mm wide.
- The waterproofing system is ballasted with a proper finishes. In all systems, laps between the membrane and any base sheets should be offset by a minimum of 300 mm.
NOTE: Attachment of reinforced bituminous membrane roofing san also be achieved by mechanical fastening with screws and stress plates or by nailing. Mechanical fastening of membranes is possible by installing a specially manufactured membrane mechanically fastened with screws and stress plates along the lap, with joints then sealed by torching, with subsequent layers fully bonded. Nailing fastening of membranes is possible by installing a sacrificial specially manufactured layer mechanically fastened with screws and stress plates, or alternatively nails, with subsequent layers fully bonded.
Indications and Important Recommendations
- During paving, sharp turns and sudden braking of the paver should be avoided and paver speed should be limited.
- In the case of new construction and renovation work, the possible chemical incompatibilities with SBS elastomer-modified bitumen sheets must be taken into account.
- In case of renovation, chemical incompatibilities with old waterproofing consisting of flexible PVC sheets, modified tar-based mastics or any other, shall be taken into account, and it may be necessary to remove them completely or to use suitable separating layers (geotextiles, mortar layer, polyethylene film, etc).
- If it is necessary to adhere to metallic or slightly porous elements, a bituminous primer (IMPRIDAN 100) shall be applied to the entire surface to be welded beforehand.
- On exposed self-protected roofs, occasional water retention that could lead to sediment accumulation and damage to the waterproofing membrane shall be avoided.
- This product may form part of a waterproofing system, so all the documents referred to in the Danosa Solutions Manual must be taken into account, as well as all the regulations and legislation that must be complied with in this respect.
- Certain precautions must be taken when pouring the asphalt agglomerate if it is poured directly on top of the waterproofing.
- The asphalt paver shall be wheeled and, if tracked, shall be fitted with rubber pads.
- The asphalt agglomerate shall be laid at temperatures between 130ºC and 180ºC.
- Self-protected sheets in coloured mineral or ceramic granules may have different colour shades depending on the different production batches. The mineral granule may darken naturally over time.
- NOTE: For more information on the Danosa systems in which this product is used, please see the document "Waterproofing Solutions".
- There is no chemical incompatibility between the Danosa range of oxyasphalt, SBS elastomeric bitumen and plastomeric bitumen sheets.
- The waterproofing must not be walked on.
- Do not use as a top sheet on green roofs.
- A separating layer (DANOFELT or DANODREN) shall be laid before laying the heavy protection (paving, gravel, topsoil, etc.), except in the case of asphalt paving which is poured directly on the waterproofing.
- Special attention must be paid to the execution of the singular points, such as parapets (meetings with vertical and emergent elements), drains, expansion joints, etc.
- Polyurethane foam shall not be sprayed directly on top of the waterproofing without the use of a suitable separating layer (geotextiles, mortar layers, polyethylene film, etc).
- The following maintenance checks must be adhered to:
- A general examination on the condition of the waterproofing and surrounding roof components.
- An inspection of all functional roofing elements including skylights, outlets, upstands, penetrations and any other visible roofing components.
- Clean outlets, drains, gutters and remove any debris from the roof.
- Periodic removal of mildew, moss, herbs or any other kind of vegetation that has been accumulation on the waterproofing.
- Periodic removal of possible sediments accumulated on the deck (silt, sledges, slate granules, etc) by occasional water accumulation.
- Periodic removal of debris and small objects that may have accumulated on the roof.
- Ensure surrounding structural elements are sound such as eaves, flashings, slate tiles and brickwork.
- Ensure that the waterproofing is in good condition and there are no blisters, damage or separation.
- Review the condition of the waterproofing (adherence to upstands, condition of overlaps, visual appearance, etc) and repair the defects observed.
These operations must be carried out twice a year, preferably at the beginning of spring or autumn and must be increased in case of decks or valleys with zero falls. It is also necessary to perform additional maintenance depending on the type of roof, location and proximity of roofs to areas with trees or in areas with high levels of pollution.
