Sika Sarnafil has launched its latest flat roofing product, a ‘peel and stick’ self-adhered single ply membrane that does not require a primer. Said to be quick and easy to install, it also reportedly mitigates the potential risks associated with adhesives and primers, making it a trusted choice for contractors and specifiers alike.
The G410-15 EL SA membrane combines Sika Sarnafil’s tried and tested BBA-certified single ply membrane with new self-adhesive technology, researched and developed in Switzerland. The adhesive is factory-installed, removing the need for on-site application.
The membrane does not require a primer and is free from volatile organic compounds (VOCs). According to the company, this significantly speeds up the installation process, as well as being beneficial from a health and safety and environmental perspective, which reportedly alleviates the risks for the specifier, contractor and client.
The absence of VOCs means that the new system is especially well-suited to sensitive environments such as hospitals, schools and other public buildings that could be in use during roofing works.
Dean Grady, product manager for single ply membranes at Sika, said: “This new roofing system was born out of listening to our customers and finding out what they really need. As market leaders, it’s important to constantly reassess the market and develop new technologies to advance the installation, health and safety and sustainability of roofing products.
“We’re not a company to rest on our laurels and the launch of our new self-adhered membrane proves just that. It’s an industry first that is fast and straightforward to fit faultlessly, while giving architects and clients the reassurance they need when it comes to specifying a safe and robust roofing system.”
Supplied as part of a complete system, the G410-15 EL SA membrane must be installed with SarnaTherm G insulation in order to qualify for the Sika Sarnafil guarantee.
As with all Sika Sarnafil roofing systems, G410-15 EL SA has been fire tested to meet ENV 1187 Broof(t4) and BS476 Part 3.
