Photo showing roof looking east waterproofed with Wrimco SBS Granules membrane single layer system. There are no joints that can be seen since width was less than 8m, the length of a roll, and started laying at the low point so the selvedge is covered when looking in that direction. The 20 litre pail of Wrimco SBS primer is can be seen next to the propane gas bottle, used for torching the SBS waterproofing membrane
Photo showing the same roof looking west but this time it shows the 3mm black edges every 925mm. The Wrimco SBS torch on waterproofing system is very functional but is not an aesthetic finish. The appearance is mainly controlled by aspect and how the rolls are laid which in term is affected by the falls and dimensions of the roof.

External acrlic Durocoat Ac applied over a first coat of SBS latex Durabit EF to the top and down and over Wrimco SBS torch applied waterproofing membrane. These liquid waterproofing membranes are compatible with Wrimco SBS.
The use of Wrimco SBS Granules to re-membrane the roof of this commercial building.
The torch applied SBS is most suited to remedial work of this nature as it can be torched over most membrane types and there are no problems with incompatibility such as frequently occur with solvent based systems. The ceramic chips are perfect UV absorbers as well as providing a non-slip surface for maintenance traffic
Photo showing a small weekend getting a new roof with Wrimco SBS Granules waterproofing membrane. All Wrimco SBS waterproofing membranes must pass the "30 year plus" aging test so this roof will surely outlast the building

Wrimco SBS waterproofing membrane being set out prior to torch applying. Since the concrete was sound, no primer was used
the 3 house development with Wrimco SBS membrane fully bonded by torch application to the concrete.

Photo showing Wrimco SBS waterproofing membrane being applied as a 2 layer system. The cap sheet has 1mm factory-applied ceramic granules which provide a non-slip surface and, being inorganic, complete protection from UV radiation. The second layer is laid parallel to the first layer which has a centre stripe to facilitate staggering the joints. This is one of the few 2 layer systems as it is more normal to use just the 1 layer
with double detailing at the perimeters, corners, vents and drains

Photo showing Wrimco SBS waterproofing membrane applied as a single layer, fully bonded system to a concrete roof prior to insulating with Wrimco PB4 followed by 1mm PP filter fabric and pebbles
Photo showing river gravel pebbles spread over a roof insulated with 2 layers of Wrimco PB4 and 1mm filter fabric. The pebbles act as a "heat sink" that assists the insulation, but their main function is to stop the insulation from lifting or floating if the drains block up (Archimedes Principle) and to stop it from blowing away
North Styne, Manly
Wrimco SBS torch applied to the top deck of a block of luxury flats overlooking Manly beach. This will be subsequently tiled.The elastic properties and long life of the SBS make it an ideal choice for decks over habitable rooms. Being strongly reinforced with 180gsm of non woven Polyester (NWP) and exhibiting excellent adhesion, it will withstand normal construction activities but if it is damaged, it is easily repaired.

Photo showing a single layer Wrimco SBS Granules waterproofing membrane system fully bonded to a plywood roof. 75mm strips were first applied over the butt joints which can be readily seen. The roof incorporates the box gutters shown. Plywood (and blockwork) is not normally primed as the Wrimco SBS adheres so well to timber but, for extra protection, the plywood was primed with Wrimco SBS Primer on this occasion
Photo showing Wrimco SBS Granules waterproofing membrane applied to an old roof. Wrimco SBS has ideal properties for most re-roofing applications. It is normally best to remove the old membrane but it can be applied directly over acrylic, urethane and even butyl rubber.
Accelerated ageing tests indicate a life expectancy in excess of 30 years
Photo showing a membrane roof area waterproofed with the same Wrimco SBS. The next photo shows the pebbles which were subsequently laid over the PB4 thermal insulation/protection board and filter fabric. The beauty of Wrimco SBS is its versatility as it may be used very effectively on virtually all external applications, especially for membrane roofs.

Photographs showing a major re-roofing job using Wrimco SBS Granules waterproofing membrane. Since the roof was angled, the Wrimco Degranulator was particularly useful to provide a "black to black" interface for the strips terminating under the metal capping.
