What is SBS membrane waterproofing?

What is SBS membrane waterproofing?

BITUTEXSELF SBS GEO is a bituminous waterproofing membrane manufactured by blending a mixture of bitumen and SBS (Styrene Butadiene Styrene) polymers to obtain excellent waterproofing and low temperature flexibility properties.

What is waterproofing membrane bitumen?

Bitumen, also known as asphalt, is a sticky, black and highly viscous liquid or semi-solid form of petroleum. Thanks to its waterproofing qualities, it is widely used in construction. Bituminous membranes are perfect for waterproofing roofs, basements, below-ground structures, bridges and other structures.

How do I choose a waterproof membrane?

Minimum ​Requirements ​for a Quality Waterproofing System

  1. Membrane Flexibility. A quality waterproofing system is seamless and flexible.
  2. Robust Adhesion. Strong & robust adhesion to all surfaces.
  3. Fast Application. Waterproofing needs to be cost effective, efficient & work.

How do you measure thickness of waterproofing?

How To Measure Thickness of Waterproofing Membranes

  1. Apply your product to the proper substrate as instructed by the manufacturer.
  2. Insert your mil gauge into the wet membrane (estimating the mil thickness you applied to determine which side to insert)
  3. Read the mil thickness by noting the deposit on the row of notches.

What is 2 ply SBS membrane?

2-ply SBS roof system the surface between two membranes creating a solid and watertight bond. Consisting of polyester or fiberglass reinforcing mat sandwiched between two layers of rubberized asphalt, two ply roof system are durable and relatively quick to install.

What is the difference between SBS and APP membrane?

The basic difference between SBS and APP is that APP-modified bitumen is a “plastic asphalt” and SBS-modified bitumen is an “elastic asphalt.” Why?

What is torch applied waterproofing membrane?

Torch-on membrane waterproofing is a type of building waterproofing solution composed of bitumen and a variety of modified polymers. When applied to the surface of a structure, it prevents moisture and liquid from seeping through — which when ignored, can negatively impact the integrity of a building over time.

What is DFT thickness?

Dry film thickness (DFT) is the thickness of a coating as measured above the substrate. This can consist of a single layer or multiple layers. DFT is measured for cured coatings (after the coating dries). The thickness of a coating depends on the application and type of process employed.

How is film thickness calculated?

You measure mass of the film before and after deposition. you will know the the mass of the film (M). You know the area of the film (A) and density (d) of the film material. By using following relation you can find out thickness (t): t = M/Ad. or you can use needle and from penetrate you can be know the thickness.

How is SBS applied?

SBS is the most customizable of our low-slope commercial roofing products with glass, polyester and composite reinforcements. It can be installed with the widest variety of application methods including cold applied, heat weld, self-adhered, mechanically fastened, and hot applied applications.

What is an SBS?

Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is a serious and chronic malabsorption disorder. SBS occurs when parts of the intestine are removed surgically and the remaining intestine may not be able to absorb enough nutrients from food and drink.

Is SBS the same as modified bitumen?

SBS modified bitumen roofing and APP modified bitumen are two very similar roofing materials. Both roofing materials are bitumen membrane roofing sheets made out of asphalt. However, the difference lies in the way the materials are modified.
