Spectraplan TPE systems combine features of thermoplastics and elastomerics. One of the major benefits of TPE membranes is its excellent welding characteristics. It has a wide welding window with operating temperatures from 200°C to 650°C and can be mechine welded at speeds of up to seven linear metres per minute.

Spectradek was specified for Farmfoods distribution centre

Furthermore, TPE membranes have strong environmental credentials – free from halogens and no plasticiseres or HCFCs. The hot-air welding process doesn’t require solvents or generate smoke, so it is fumeless, safe and a quick product for contractors to install.

In addition, the Spectraplan TPE waterproofing membrane has a BBA certified life expectancy in excess of 30 years.

Anthony Carlyle, IKO Polymeric Managing Director, discussed a recent application of Spectradek: “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.”

The Spectradek system is suitable for both flat and pitched roofs, in addition to roofs with convex or concave curves.
