SIG Design & Technology - Rhepanol PIB, Easy to Lay & Easy on the Planet too!

Rhepanol Flat Roofing Product Demonstration Video

SIG Design and Technology’s Steve Cleminson talks about an eco-friendly single ply roofing membrane called Rhepanol – which has no significant environmental impact at any time between its manufacturer and eventual disposal.

Rhepanol is made from polyisobutylene (PIB), a synthetic rubber, and is the only membrane currently available with a full Life Cycle Assessment that meets DIN EN ISO 14040 part ff, showing that it has no significant environmental impact at any time between its manufacturer and eventual disposal. It is available in two types; Rhepanol fk and Rhepanol hg.

Rhepanol fk
Designed to be installed directly over bituminous roofs, it can be mechanically fixed, bonded or ballasted and requires no ‘hot work’. It is easy to lay and join and can be fitted in most weather conditions making it an ideal labour saving system. Rhepanol fk is also used in new build applications.

Rhepanol fk (in white)
Rhepanol fk in white specifically helps maximise the reflectivity of solar PV systems. It is permanently resistant to UV radiation and, due to its higher anti-slip friction co-efficient panels can be installed with a greater pitch – up to 9.5° – than other membranes. It is free from halogen or plasticizers and is suitable for over-roofing as it is compatible with other materials, including bitumen.

Rhepanol hg
Rhepanol hg has been developed from Rhepanol fk to meet the specification requirements of green roofs. Rhepanol hg is designed to be hot-air welded to provide the strongest possible seam and is an ideal choice for waterproofing a landscaped roof. It holds FLL certification.

SIG Design & Technology’s recently approved CPD seminar qualifies for double points. Called ‘A Structured Approach to Roof Design & Specification’ this brand new CPD can be booked through www.singleply.co.uk
