A Built Up Roof Membrane consists of two or more superimposed layers of a bitumen roofing sheet which is bedded and bonded with hot bitumen or fused together by torch application method. This multi layer system gives more levels of defence against water ingress.
The ideal membrane combines a base of high stiffness and tension, with a low stiffness matrix to provide the best combination of characteristics to resist movement and maintain waterproofing integrity.
The majority of materials consist of a reinforcement base of glass or polyester coated with oxidised or modified bitumen, this is a popularity choice or roof covering due to the waterproofing and adhesive properties of bitumen, but it is the nature of the reinforcing base which control the strength and fatigue resistance.
There are numerous systems available including refurbishment torch on systems and cut to fall insulation systems. Torch on is a means adhering membranes for built up roofing which involves activating a factory applied layer of bitumen using a gas torch

Pour and Roll
High performance membranes manufactured using oxidised or SBS modified bitumen reinforced with non woven polyester reinforcement for traditional waterproofing. The membranes offer resistance to ageing and atmospheric conditions providing value for money.
Heat Activated & Self Adhesive
Heat activated membranes offer solutions where direct torching or hot bitumen applied directly to the deck is not acceptable. Manufactured after careful research using specially selected polymers, distilled bitumen and special heat sensitive adhesives. Self adhesive polymer bitumen membranes laminated with high density polyethylene or aluminium foil applied using a Peel & Seal technique without the need for hot bitumen or gas torches
