Low odour roofing membrane offers a non-disruptive solution

  • 14 Oct 2014

The new system has been designed to formulate extremely low solvent content and low odour liquid applied membranes for a range of applications, with the liquid being tested in sensitive areas such as hospitals, manufacturing plants and schools.

Prior to Decothane’s launch, Sika worked alongside a consultancy specialising in the testing of occupational health exposures in order to develop a test method on roofs that could replicate the worst case scenarios.

A cross section of single component polyurethane liquid membrane products were tested under these conditions and were all found to breach workplace exposure limits, leading to the development of Decothane Ultra.

The single component polyurethane was found to not breach limits when put under test conditions and was even used in application at a highly sensitive nuclear site.

European regulation imposes strict controls on Volatile Organic Compound contents and focuses on ensuring that chemicals are non-hazardous in their use.
