Hypalon® Based Composite Laminates.
In the process of devising our gutter lining
system we have formed reinforced Hypalon based laminates into
virtually every shape and size imaginable. These laminates
are so strong that it is impossible for a man to tear yet
they have the flexibility to be ‘screwed up’ and
to date we have yet to find a product to equal it in both
flexibility and waterproofing capability.
We can spray apply this material to large surface
areas with simultaneous glass fibre roving reinforcement or
with extra reinforcement laminates in areas of high movement.
The random glass fibre roving reinforced coating does not
posses the immense tensile strength of the laid laminate process
but has the advantage of being applied ‘in situ’
and its semi-liquid state on application allows complex detail
work to be easily formed.
A continuous R&D programme is running to
establish the limits to which both cured laminates and ‘in
situ’ applications can be undertaken as well as experimentation
with other composite laminate materials. As a roofing company
we have always operated our own unique reinforced spray applied
roofing systems which have been suitable for waterproofing
unusual shaped structures. The equipment we designed was very
complex and training took at least a year but our new system
which utilises the Hypalon material is less complex and easier
to use. When we designed our spray system in 1976 it was light
years ahead of any roofing system available, our new systems
are equally as advanced.
We are always interested in challenging
projects and have a long history of solving complex water
penetration problems that other companies have failed to solve.
Such as an externally sited wind tunnel with approximately
two hundred joints and abutments where negative pressure drew
ponding water into the wind tunnel.
