IKO Polymeric will be exhibiting its range of high-performance waterproofing solutions on Stand B34/306 at this year’s Build Show at the NEC, Birmingham, 18-20 October. Its range of Armourplan PVC and Spectraplan TPE membranes – both with a BBA certified life expectancy in excess of 30 years – will be shown on the stand.
Anthony Carlyle, managing director of IKO Polymeric, gives further details on Spectraplan: “Our TPE system combines the best performance characteristics of thermoplastics (e.g. PVC) and elastomerics (e.g. EPDM). It’s free from halogens and there are no plasticisers or HCFCs. The hot-air welding process doesn’t require solvents or generate smoke, so it’s fumeless and safe to install. It’s also very quick – Spectraplan can be machine-welded at speeds of up to seven linear metres a minute.”
