Tanking Membrane

Put your trust in quality tanking membrane

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.
