Modo/P is only available with the fine serigraphic talc finish and must be protected by backfilling, installing a wearing course or with other Index Mineral finished cap layers (Sirio/P or Testudo Mineral) if exposed to UV. Advantages „ Index membranes have over 25 years of proven performance throughout Australia „ Specifically selected for Australian conditions „ Low VOC - 3 grams per Litre „ Handles ponding and permanently wet conditions „ No curing times. Instantly waterproof „ Uniform thickness – eliminating likelihood of uneven application possible with liquid applied membranes „ Polyester fabric composite reinforcement ensures dimensional stability and high strength while maintaining flexibility during application and service „ Excellent stability at high and low temperatures „ Over laps are heat fused providing a homogenous joint eliminating the chance of water ingress beneath the membrane system „ Long lasting strength, elasticity and stability at high and low temperatures make Modo/P ideal for use as a waterproofing membrane system for new building work or refurbishment Description Modo/P is manufactured from distilled bitumen, selected for industrial use, with special Elastomeric and plastomeric polymers added to obtain a phase inversion compound. This continuous phase is formed by polymers in which the bitumen is dispersed. These characteristics are determined by the polymeric matrix and not by the bitumen even if this is the most consistent ingredient. The addition of elastomeric and plastomeric polymers, increases the performance and durability of the bitumen. This blend also increases the performance of the membrane at high and low temperatures. Modo/P is a reinforced rot-proof “non woven” polyester fabric composite stabilized with fibreglass mat. This ensures a very strong and elastic membrane offering optimal dimensional stability in hot conditions reducing the problem of the banana effect and the retraction of lap joints. The top face of Modo/P is coated with a uniformly distributed, fine, serigraphed talc, a patented treatment. This enables quick unrolling and installation of the membrane with reliable and fast welding of the joints. The underside of the membrane is coated with Flamina and embossing. The flamina is a plastic film that melts when torched. The embossing maintains the pre-tension and optimal retraction of the film and allows the torch a greater surface area for faster and more reliable installation. Technical Support Parchem offers a technical support package to specifiers, end-users and contractors, as well as on-site technical assistance.
