Designing the Right Single Ply Roofing System

Chemical Compatibilities & Other Manufacturers’ Products

Particular care shall be taken to ensure that certain materials and substances do not come into contact with Monarplan membranes. The following brief list of products are not compatible with Monarplan PVC single ply roofing membranes (amongst others):

  • Bitumen 
  • Tar 
  • Polystyrene 
  • Fats 
  • Oils and crude oil products 
  • Solvents.

For confirmation of any other material compatibility queries, please contact Icopal’s Technical Services Department.

Other manufacturers’ products

The use of other manufacturers’ materials and accessories which become an integral part of the water proofing system shall be avoided.  As an exception to this rule Icopal can individually approve other materials for a single project.

Examples:

  • Rainwater outlets 
  • Ready-made accessories 
  • Adhesives

This clause also refers to membranes and fleeces which are attached to the Monarplan PVC single ply roofing membranes by bonding or weight of ballast or roof plant.
