Property Managment Company, Maryland, U.S.A.

 
 

Application Date:

June 2008

 
 

Application Situation:

3,000 sq.ft (270m²) rubber membrane roof on office building. the roof was 20 year old with ballast rocks

 
 

Problem:

Roof had started to leak due to holes in the rubber membrane. The customer wanted the roof fixed quickly and without tearing off the old roof.

 
 

Products:


Belzona® 3111 (Flexible Membrane)
 

Substrate:

Rubber membrane

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet RPA-6 & -8. The ballast was removed and the rubber membrane pressure washed. The rubber membrane was then mechanically fastened and rubber "peel-and-stick" pads were placed over each mechanical fastener washer. Fully reinforced Belzona Flexible Membrane System then applied using Belzona® 3921 as Conditioner.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Customer was very satisfied with the project and said that we "...had no idea how much money we saved the company". This project was done in 4 days with 4 people. If the roof had been "Torn-Off" and a new roof installed it would have taken about twice as long and about twice as much labor.
