IKO Polymeric has launched a new single component roof panel suitable for flat and pitched roofs, as well as for roofs with convex or concave curves.
Spectradek is manufactured from a single ply TPE waterproofing membrane with insulation and a trapezoidal steel deck. The waterproofing membrane has a BBA certified life expectancy in excess of 30 years.
Spectraplan TPE systems combine properties of thermoplastics and elastomerics, and boast excellent welding characteristics. It has a wide welding window with operating temperatures from 200°C to 650°C and can be machine welded at speeds of up to seven linear metres a minute.
The TPE membranes are free from halogens, plasticisers and HCFCs. In addition, the hot-air welding process does not require solvents or generate smoke, and is therefore fumeless, safe and environmental credentials.
IKO Polymeric Managing Director Anthony Carlyle commented: “Spectradek has already been used on a large distribution centre for Farmfoods; a single storey temperature-controlled building.
The roof needed to be rapidly constructed and provide lasting protection, but also needed to meet exacting insulation and environmental specifications. Spectradek was the ideal solution.”
