Icopal offers a single source solution for complete roof waterproofing. This means simplifying the specification process whilst ensuring that all aspects of an installation attain the same excellent quality through stringent project monitoring and a guaranteed support mechanism.
Vapour Control Layer
Icopal supplies a range of high performance polyethylene and bituminous vapour control layers for use with its single ply roofing systems.
Icopal heat-activated self-adhesive vapour control layers, are manufactured from SBS-modified bitumen and reinforced with an extra strong glass fibre fleece with a PET aluminium foil.
Micoral SK has a blue SYNTAN® resin upper surface allowing the appropriate insulation board to be adhered using Icopal Insulation Adhesive.
Micoral NB is finished with a polyethylene film, and is suitable for use in mechanically fastened applications only.
These membranes are suitable for direct use on metal, timber and concrete deck types.
Also available are Total Torch VCL, and Micotherm SK, and Vapourbar. Please see individual product literature for further information.
Since these membranes are adhered, they can provide a weatherproof temporary finish to the roof structure prior to the application of the insulation and final waterproofing system.
For mechanically fastened situations, the Monarflex range of reinforced polyethylene vcls, which includes Reflex 275, Monofilament 250, and Netofol, provide a quick and cost effective method of vapour control.
These membranes are loose-laid with laps sealed with Monobond LT tape, and are secured to the roof deck through the mechanical fastening of the insulation board.
Monarflex multi-layer VCL’s are manufactured from virgin polyethylene with built-in reinforcement grids of HDPE making them highly resistant to tears and damage. Some also have a layer of aluminium foil for higher water vapour resistance performance.
