Icopal’s plan is PVC
Building membranes specialist Icopal has extended its range of singly-ply waterproofing solutions with the launch of its Monarplan PVC system for new-build and refurbished roofs.
Monarplan, which can be installed on most commonly-used deck types and substrates, has a peerless track record. The first batch to roll off the production line some 40 years ago can still be found fully functional over a storage facility at an Icopal factory some 40 years later.
It is this longevity, coupled with the fact that PVC is recyclable, that ticks the box on the environmental agenda, reducing the consumption of raw materials and amount of waste material going to landfill or incineration.
In addition, the recently published BRE Green Guide rates a PVC-based single-ply waterproofing membrane installed over thermal insulation and vapour control layer on a steel roof deck as A+.
Icopal’s Monarplan PVC-P benefits from a non-wick polyester reinforcement, which prevents the possibility of water ingress into the membrane via capillary action. It is also resistant to weathering, chemical oxidisation, UV degradation, fire and rot.
Lightweight and flexible at low temperatures, Monarplan is available for mechanically-fastened, fully-adhered and loose-laid (ballasted or green roof) waterproofing applications in all building sectors including education, health, commercial and residential.
Designed and manufactured to ISO 9001, it is also monitored externally for product quality and fitness for purpose under European Technical Approval ETA 08/0379. Available in three thicknesses and seven colours, overlapping sheets can be welded together to form a homogeneous lap using hot air equipment.
Available unreinforced or reinforced with polyester or glass, the range includes an anti-skid walkway membrane and accessories ranging from, pre-moulded internal and external corners, pipe boots, conductor pads, roof drainage outlets, tubular washers, carbon steel or stainless steel fasteners, separation fleeces, VCLs, tapes, sealants and insulation.
Monarplan joins Icopal’s single-ply range of Sure-Weld TPO- an advanced, Greenpeace-approved Thermoplastic Polyolefin waterproofing solution that combines the flexibility of rubber with the durability of heat-weldable seams, and FireSmart™, a non-flammable SBS polymer modified single layer reinforced bitumen membrane.
