Advantages „ Index membranes have over 25 years of proven performance throughout Australia „ Specifically selected for Australian conditions „ Low VOC - 15 grams per Litre „ Handles ponding and permanently wet conditions „ No curing times. Instantly waterproof „ Provides an economical single layer membrane, or economical base layer in multi-layer torch-on systems „ Uniform thickness - eliminating likelihood of uneven application possible with liquid applied membranes „ Polyester fabric reinforcement provides good strength and elasticity „ Excellent stability at both high and low temperatures „ High tear and puncture resistance Description Argo P is an economical, torch applied bituminous sheet membrane reinforced with non-woven polyester fabric composite, stabilised with fibreglass mat which makes this membrane very strong while remaining elastic and allowing it to provide optimum dimensional stability. The bitumen compounds used to manufacture the product are modified with atactic polypropylene (AAP) providing the necessary stability at both high and low temperatures. The upper face is treated with serigraph talc, the lower face with a sacrificial polyethylene film called Flamina. The lower face is embossed with small squares which assist in the visual recognition of the correct melting temperature. The embossing also ensures good vapour diffusion in spot bonded or loose laid applications. Maintenance No special requirements, any damage identified during normal inspections should be repaired or replaced as appropriate. Properties Product code: 742230 Form: Torch applied reinforced sheet Size: Roll width 1 m, length 10 m Colour: Black / Brown Thickness: 3 mm (plain) Reinforcement: Non-woven polyester fabric Tensile strength (EN - longitudinal 400 N/50 mm 12311-1): - transverse 300 N/50 mm Ultimate elongation (EN 12311-1): - longitudinal 40% - transverse 40% Tear resistance (EN 12310-1): 120N Application temperature: 5°C - 35°C ambient Service temperature (continuous ambient): 0°C - 100°C Specification Clauses Where so designated on the drawing, the surfaces shall be covered with a torch applied, polyester reinforced, polymer modified bituminous waterproofing membrane. The membrane shall be reinforced with non-woven polyester fabric and be based on distilled bitumen and polymers. Such a product is Argo P as supplied by Parchem. Areas shall be prepared and the membrane applied in accordance with the current Argo P technical data sheet, paying attention to priming requirements.
