LAYING RECOMMENDATIONS

  • the use of sheets with a maximum length of 5 m is recommended
  • prevent direct contact of the metal with the torch flame in order to avoid damages to the sheet or detachments
  • weld the sheets by mainly heating the underlying membrane
  • it is preferable to use membranes reinforced with glass sheet or composite polyester as a first seal layer
  • avoid site handling on the product, especially after torching
  • it is good rule to wear suitable wide sole and heelless footwear so as not to damage the metal sheet
  • use mechanical anchoring every 20 cm for slopes over 20%
  • if used on insulation, make use of MEGAVER AL TF, by preparing a vapour barrier under the insulation material and an adequate number of aerators
  • any application of MEGAVER CU on thermal insulation must be agreed in advance with the BITUVER Technical Service
