Hydrotech and Liquid Membranes
Since early 2018 Sahara Waterproofing has combined traditional torch-on methods with NZ new membrane solutions in a multi-layer process. This ensures a completely watertight product to stand the test of time.
Hydrotech Monolithic Membrane 6125 (MM6125) is a thick, tough, flexible, self-healing membrane for use in roofing and waterproofing applications. It is a special formulation of refined asphalts and synthetic rubbers.
The system provides seamless waterproofing, which is ideal for high performance, zero fall, green roofs and hard landscaped podiums structures.
It is self-healing in the event of minor penetrations and is made of 100% solids, which means no curing time, no mixing and no solvents. The system fully bonds to the substrate avoiding any chance of water tracking, and its monolithic nature ensures no possibility of lap failures.
Having now completed 3 large apartment projects with this product we are confident about its durability and quality in design.
Hydrotech Monolithic Membrane 6125 (MM6125)
Able to be used in zero fall applications. This means the product can be applied directly to the structural substrate without the need for a screed to falls.
Being a seamless system, Hydrotech can be applied to upstands and details first, enabling other work, such cladding installation, to commence whilst the main deck is used as a working/storage area which is only waterproofed once clear.
MM6125 is highly resistant to fertilisers, building washes, and is completely solvent-free.
It has low temperature flexibility and adhesion and is not affected by rain, snow or frost immediately after its application. It may be installed at temperatures as low as -15°C.
It has an international in-service history of 50 years without any reported material related failures.
Compliance with the NZ Building Code has been established by an MBIE Determination when used as part of a protected membrane roof (PMR) system.
