Traffic Bearing Membrane  

Traffic bearing waterproofing membranes are generally three or four coat urethane systems which can be provided in a range of basic colors. Traffic bearing waterproofing membranes allow for minor movement in cracks and various types of joints. Traffic bearing waterproofing membranes are durable, waterproof and attractive.

It consists of an elastomeric waterproofing membrane and protective wearing course/topcoat. Depending on the end use, it varies from foot traffic (mechanical rooms, balconies, etc.) to heavy-duty vehicular traffic in applications such as commercial parking garages.

A fluid-applied waterproof membrane system that is designed to stop water from migrating through horizontal surfaces in order to prevent damage to occupied spaces and to equipment or vehicles located below. Another primary function is to prevent contamination and / or deterioration of the substrate onto which the membrane is to be applied.

Typical applications for this type of waterproof membrane would be:

  • Parking Garage Decks
  • Balconies
  • Sidewalks & Entrances
  • Plaza Decks
  • Pool Decks
  • Mechanical Equipment Rooms
  • Laundry Rooms
  • Food Service Areas
  • Warehouses
  • Auto Service Areas
  • Stadiums & Sport Centers
  • Concrete Roof Decks
  • Manufacturing & Industrial Service Areas

Traffic bearing waterproofing membranes can be comprised of a single type of material, such as a polyurethane or epoxy, or a combination of materials depending on the particular use. We offer many different types of systems and can customize a system to meet a specific need.

  • Low odor with minimum disruption to condominium living
  • Long pot life (working time) for ease of application
  • Capable of bridging post application cracks up to 1.6 mm
  • Retains its strength and integrity; does not harden with age
  • Accommodates minor movements of the concrete floor
  • Not sensitive to humidity during installation

PVC Membrane

PVC membrane is superior high-quality PVC waterproofing membrane for roofs and decks. It is suitable for both exposed and concealed roof waterproofing applications. Produced under strictly controlled conditions,therefpreis uniform in thickness and quality which give this membrane its excellent performance record.

Strong, tough, light-weight, allows light to medium foot traffic and it exhibits excellent weather-ability, resistance to ageing and microorganisms. Nuraplan V is 100% compatible with bitumen. The backed polyester fleece act as a separation layer between the membrane and bitumen or bituminous material / substrate.

  • They are homogeneous, soft, flexible with an extremely high percentage of high  polymer solids.
  • They are also available in a light coloured smooth surface which does not retain dirt and promotes heat reflection.

HDPE Blind-Side Waterproofing Membrane

It is a high-performance HDPE Blind-Side waterproofing membrane designed for applications where the waterproofing must be laid prior to pouring of the concrete. It allows for fully-bonded waterproofing membrane to be applied to the positive-side of the building structure even where the said surface is inaccessible to application personnel.

It is highly resistant to hydrostatic pressure, ground settlement and soil chemicals. It is also fully mechanically bonded, making it non water-tracking in the unlikely event of damage to the membrane, providing longterm watertight integrity even in the most demanding of applications.

It is easy to install, and has a pressure-sensitive self-adhesive which allows for watertight sealing of overlapping sheets. It also allows the membrane to be cold-applied and easily installated in restricted and confined spaces.

It provides an effective waterproofing membrane for foundations, tunnels and basements.

 

Waterproofing Membrane

Installation Procedures

It should be adhered with the film side to the substrate. On vertical surfaces, the membrane is to be mechanically fastened to the top of the structure first before applying subsequent layers. Overlaps should be staggered in order to prevent a bulge forming, and all succeeding layers must be clean and dry before application in order to ensure a strong, watertight bond.

The substrate should be mechanically sound and not move during the pour. The substrate should also be smooth with no gaps or voids. Any penetrations should be grouted in order to ensure stability. Before the pour, ensure that all plastic release liners are removed. Ensure that no sharp objects are used to consolidate the concrete in order to prevent damage to the membrane.

Technical Specification

 

Application

Substrate basement and wall slabs in any underground structure with limited working space.

Advantages

  • Excellent adherence to poured concrete
  • Non water-tracking
  • High resistance to hydrostatic pressure
  • High resistance to tears and punctures
  • Strong mechanical bond
  • Permanently bonds to structural concrete
  • No membrane protection required
  • Resistant to soil chemicals
  • Conforms to LTA Standards

Application Instructions

1. Prepare Substrate

• Substrates must be sound and solid to eliminate movement during the concrete pour.

• Substrates must be regular and smooth with no gaps or voids greater than 12 mm (0.5 in.).

• Substrates must be free of loose aggregate and sharp protrusions. (Picture 1)

• Surface does not need to be dry, but standing water must be removed.

• Applications may require the use of Hydroduct Drainage Composite or plywood to provide a suitable substrate over the soil retention system.

2. Horizontal Application

• Apply Preprufe membrane with the HDPE film side facing the prepared substrate and the treated white coating surface facing the concrete to be poured. (Picture 2)

• Overlap succeeding sheets by a minimum of 75 mm (3 in.).

• Remove release liner. (Picture 3)

• Roll side lap. (Picture 4)

• Overlap ends of membrane a minimum of 75 mm (3 in.).

• Center Preprufe Tape over end laps and roll firmly. (Picture 5)

• For vertical and horizontal applications in cool temperatures or damp conditions, gently warm side laps or use Preprufe Tape LT

3. Vertical Application

• Apply Preprufe membrane in a convenient length with HDPE film side facing the prepared substrate.

• Fasten to substrate along the top edge with large head nails, roofing nails or staples. Top termination should be secured with termination bar and fasteners. (Picture 6)

• For lengths greater than 2.4 m (8 ft), additional fastening at 0.6 m (2 ft) intervals along the uncoated edge prior to making the side lap is recommended.

• Roll side lap.

• Overlap ends of membrane a minimum of 75 mm (3 in.).

• Center Preprufe Tape over end laps and roll firmly. If top termination is to be covered with concrete, a strip of tape should also be centered over the termination bar.

• Remove release liner.

4. Complete Details

• Protrusions and penetration should be tightly “picture framed” with the Preprufe membrane.

• If the membrane is not within 12 mm (0.5 in) of the penetration, use Preprufe Tape to bridge the gap.

• Tieback heads should be covered with a box to provide smooth and stable substrate.

• All membrane repairs should be made with Preprufe Tape. Be sure to wipe surface of membrane to be repaired to remove any site dust or dirt.

5. Visual Work Inspection

• Inspect the membrane for damage before placing or reinforcing steel, fromwork and concrete.

• Repair slices and small punctures which are less than 13 mm (0.5 in.) by applying Preprufe Tape over the damages area and roll firmly.

• Repair holes and punctures greater than 13 mm (0.5 in.) by applying a patch of Preprufe membrane to extend 150 mm (6 in.) beyong the damaged area. Seal the terminations of the patch with Preprufe Tape.

• Ensure plastic release liner is removed from all areas of Preprufe membrane and tape.

6. Concrete Placement

• Cast concrete within 56 days (42 days in hot climates) of application of the membrane

• Concrete must be placed carefully to avoid damage to the membrane.

• For shotcrete placement, contact your local Grace sales representative.
