Bituminous Membrane - DIY/Merchants

With over 100 years’ experience, IKO offers a comprehensive range of flat roofing membranes and pitched roof systems, carefully developed to provide the optimum combination of performance and cost for a wide range of applications. Our UK manufactured bituminous roofing range is designed to meet the needs of everyone from the small builder to specialist roofing contractors, and offers the right products whatever the budget, project requirements or operator skill levels are. IKO also supports customers with expert technical advice, helping to ensure the best products are chosen and installed.

Torch-on Membranes
Torch-on membranes offer a simple, rapid application and are installed by highly skilled and trained operatives. As the bonding bitumen forms part of the core membrane itself, torch-on systems provide completely homogeneous bitumen throughout. Coating on underside of felt is activated by heat from a gas flame.

It is often used for roofs with difficult access (less equipment required compared to pour & roll). It offers an ideal solution for remedial overlays, detailing work and small area patching.

Pour & Roll Membranes
Pour & roll bitumen membranes are fully bonded with a hot bonding bitumen around 240°C. This process typically requires 2 operatives, one pouring the hot bitumen and one rolling the membrane into the hot bitumen.

They all have tough polyester bases and consist of either oxidised or SBS modified bitumen coating. They are suitable for warm roofs, inverted roofs and cold roof applications and used in conjunction with a wide range of insulation boards.

Self – Adhesive Membranes
The self-adhesive (S-A) application process eliminates the need for hot bitumen or gas torches, making the IKO Easyseal range an ideal option for experienced contractors or competent DIY installers alike. Installation is simple, only basic skills and tools are required for a professional finish.

IKO Easyseal range also provides an advantage for buildings with limited access.
