Dubai, June 30, 2011
Mapei, the leading global manufacturer of adhesives and chemical products for buildings, has introduced a new generation of waterproofing solutions that can be used both above and below the ground.
The new generation synthetic membranes – Mapeplan T Mf, Mapeplan T B, and Mapeplan T TU – have been specially developed to address the unique waterproofing requirements of construction projects in the UAE and across the Middle East, a statement said.
“Waterproofing is a fundamental element in building construction and is a key factor in guaranteeing building integrity. Mapei has therefore developed a new range of waterproofing solutions that takes into account the distinct requirements of our clients in the Middle East region,” said Vince Robinson, specification consultant, Mapei.
“Mapeplan T Mf, Mapeplan T B, and Mapeplan T TU are perfect for all weather conditions and have been engineered to deliver optimum environmental benefits,” he added.
Mapeplan T Mf is a synthetic roofing waterproofing membrane in flexible polyolefin TPO/FPO produced in a single multi-extrusion process, with high-quality raw materials, reinforced with polyester net, fleece backed with 300 grams per sq m woven-non-woven polyester.
Mapeplan T B a loose laid ballasted synthetic roofing waterproofing membrane in flexible polyolefin TPO/FPO produced in one multi-extrusion coating process, with high-quality raw materials, reinforced with glass mat.
Mapeplan T TU is a non-toxic waterproofing membrane developed for tunnels and underground works with a distinctive damage detecting signal layer. Just like Mapeplan T Mf and Mapeplan T B, Mapeplan T TU features double heat seams that allow pressure test, which confirm membrane integrity prior to being put into service, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
