Hot applied roofing

Hot applied roofing

Hot applied roofing solutions can be divided into two main groups: hot melt and mastic asphalt. Hot melt roofing systems are self-healing membranes created when a hot liquid is applied to the prepared structural surface. Mastic asphalt comes in a variety of formulations that use advanced polymer technology and is applied by traditional methods in two coats.

Heat is required for other types of roofing applications. These include pour and roll, torch on and hot air welded roofing systems.

Mastic asphalt is one of the oldest construction and waterproofing membrane solutions made popular because of its durability and reliable performance. Modern variations are formulated to extend the life of the mastic asphalt and make it applicable to the demands of modern construction and environmental protection. IKO PLC achieved the CarbonZero standard in 2007.

Hot applied roofing - Hot melt

Hot melt roofing systems are manufactured from a combination of refined bitumen, synthetic rubbers, fillers and other additives. This gives the finished monolithic membrane long lasting waterproofing integrity ideal for most new build flat roof applications with suitable protection layer. This includes those designed and constructed to achieve zero falls.

The waterproofing layer is usually unaffected by standing water, dilute acids and fertiliser, and some formulas allow for root control which lends itself to specification for inverted and green roofs. The use of a combination of materials means some hot melt roof systems contain a high proportion of recycled content.

Hot applied roofing - Modern mastic asphalts

Modern mastic asphalts are specially formulated to include synthetic bitumen, and some include advanced polymer technology to offer improved durability, temperature stability and fatigue resistance and to make the installation easier. The solution is suitable for flat roofs with pitches up to 10°, and with modifications to the application, can be used for slopes over 30° and curved surfaces. Mastic asphalt can be used on most roof decks, whether concrete, timber or profile metal. The typical specification is for insulated warm roofs, un-insulated cold roofs and inverted roofs. Application for both extensive and intensive green roofs is common as the waterproof membrane can last for the design life of the roofing system.

 

What are the benefits of hot melts

  • Completely seamless and homogenous waterproofing with no risk of overlapping failure
  • IKO features hot melt systems that include anti-root within the product which eliminates the requirement for a separate root control membrane, thus reducing the system weight
  • Tough and resistant to impact damage thanks to its high tensile strength
  • Rapid setting
  • Excellent flexibility even at low temperatures and allows for effective detailing to challenging penetrations
  • Easily recyclable

What are the benefits of modern mastic asphalts

 

  • Outstanding durability – lasts for the design time of the building
  • Resistant to loading and foot traffic and can be designed for vehicular access
  • Flexible design as the material is mouldable to a variety of shapes and contours and offers seamless finish
  • Excellent low temperature flexibility and high temperature stability
  • Speed of application and fast curing
