Roof waterproofing systems are usually only designed to accept limited maintance foot traffic. Regular foot traffic and recreational use increases the risk of damage to the waterproofing, and a more durable surfacing is required.
The Elastoflex Anti-Skid Walkway System is intended to provide a hard wearing and durable surface to maintanance and escape routes, terrace areas, balconies and walkways, and podium decks.
Designed to provide the optimum combination of aesthetic and functional performance Elastoflex anti- skid surfacing products form an integral part of a complete system where waterproofing and surfacing are required.
Elastoflex surfacing products can be applied onto Elastoflex waterproofing systems, or onto various new or existing substrates, to form a durable hard wearing surface for walkways, balconies, terrace areas and podium decks.
Elastoflex Anti-Skid Walkway Components
Some liquid systems are installed by applying a base coat, which is then allowed to dry, often over night risking contamination of the surface, before adding the top coat. The system then relies upon the bond between two separate layers.
Elastoflex Walkway Compound is a two component, solvent free resin typically used with the Elastoflex Quartz granules to create an anti-skid walkway surface above the finished Elastoflex waterproofing membrane.
Elastoflex Bulking Sand comprises fine silica sand granules supplied in a 10 kg bag for use with the Elastoflex Walkway Compound where there is a need to create a level walkway surface.
Elastoflex Quartz comprises kiln dried silica granules which are scattered by hand into the Elastoflex Walkway Compound once the wet resin has been mixed and applied at the correct coverage rates. Available in three types: Natural, Coloured, and Aluminium Oxide.
Elastoflex UV Clear Elastoflex UV Clear is a one component, low solvent coating based on a light-stable polyurethane resin. It is used as a final encapsulation and UV protection layer to the walkway system.
Standard Anti-Skid Walkway System
The standard Elastoflex Anti-Skid Walkway System is applied directly to the waterproofing system. Existing waterproofing membranes should be suitably prepared prior to application to ensure adequate adhesion.

Alternative Paving Options
If a bedded paved terrace area is preferred by specifiers, then the Elastoflex waterproofing system may instead be first protected using the Elastoflex HP Primer as an alkaline protection layer. A sand/cement bed may then be applied over the system and the preferred choice of paving slab may then be bedded down.

Alternatively, the Roofgard Adjustable Paving Support Units may be used in conjunction with the Icopal Terradek timber decking tile, or with suitable paving slabs. Please see separate datasheets for further information.
Elastoflex liquid-applied waterproofing systems are to be installed by Icopal Elastoflex approved roofing contractors only. For a list of approved contractors please contact your local Icopal Area Technical Manager.
