The ingress of water into any construction often spells disaster for the entire project.
It’s essential, therefore, to put your trust in a high-quality material that works to create an impenetrable barrier against water.
The Visqueen Tanking Membrane range is a BBA certified range of highly durable watertight coverings made of modified bitumen rubber.
Resistant to groundwater in accordance with BS 8102:2009, these multi-functional membranes are suitable for a vast number of above and below ground applications – including basements, retaining walls, and lift pits.
They can also be applied to a variety of substrates, from blockwork and brickwork to concrete and steelwork.
A membrane for every application
Versatility is at the very core of the Visqueen Tanking Membrane range. Depending on your requirements, there are several options available –
• Self-Adhesive (supplied in rolls 1m x 20m)
Visqueen Self Adhesive Membrane is the ‘standard’ product within the range and can be used to achieve waterproofing to Grades 1, 2 and 3 (as with all other varieties).
Thanks to the self-adhesive coating, this cold applied product is easy to detail, easy to install on-site, and can act as both a radon and a damp proof membrane.
• Gas Resistant (supplied in rolls 1m x 20m)
Like the ‘standard’ version, the Visqueen Gas Resistant Membrane is a cold applied product that is highly waterproof and flexible.
The added benefit comes in the form of a foil lining, which makes it suitable for use in all types of buildings to prevent the ingress of harmful levels of ground gases. This includes methane, carbon dioxide, and radon.
• Torch On (supplied in rolls 1m x 8m)
The gas resistant Torch On Membrane is the most comprehensive product in the range.
Unlike the others, it’s a heat bonded product with a heat dispersible film on the underside. This makes it most ideal for cold and damp conditions.
When applied as a two-layer system, this product is suitable for use in below-ground structures where high levels of hydrostatic pressure exist and for waterproofing podium decks. It can also be used as a single layer system as a horizontal damp proofing membrane.
