Mapei launches new waterproofing products
New-generation waterproofing products for above and below ground
Mapei has introduced a new generation of waterproofing products that can be used both above and below ground.
The new-generation synthetic membranes, known as Mapeplan T Mf, Mapeplan T B and Mapeplan T TU, have been developed especially to address the unique waterproofing requirements of construction projects in the UAE and across the Middle East.
“Waterproofing is a fundamental element in building construction, and is a key factor in guaranteeing building integrity,” says Mapei specification consultant Vince Robinson.
“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,” he explains.
The products are perfect for all weather conditions, and have been engineered to deliver optimum environmental benefits.
Mapeplan T Mf is a mechanically-fixed TPO/FPO roof waterproofing membrane with high UV resistance, excellent mechanical properties and ‘smart white’ reflectance properties, which reduce over 50% of roof temperature and internal building temperature, thus promoting significant energy savings.
Mapeplan T B is ideal for exposed roof garden systems. Mapeplan T TU, on the other hand, is a non-toxic waterproofing membrane developed for tunnels and underground works with a distinctive damage detecting signal layer. It features double heat seams that allow pressure testing, which confirms membrane integrity prior to being put into service.
