Application Information
Instructions for use

Substrate Preparation

The surface of the sloping concrete shall be sound, clean, dry or wet, and uncontaminated. This preparation shall be as such as to leave a sound exposed concrete surface free from dust, laitance and any delirious matter.



Install loosely laid PVC sheets over entire r o o f area so the light colour is at the visible side towards the substrate.

A. Horizontal Installation:

  1. Install the separation layer over the entire horizontal area before the PVC membrane (if needed) in full accordance with Colmef’s method statement
  2. Accurately align sheets and maintain uniform side and end laps of minimum dimensions required. Stagger end laps.
  3. Install the Geotextile membrane as a separation layer above the PVC membrane followed by a minimum of 50mm extruded polystyrene thermal insulation
  4. As much as practically possible the joints will not be against the direction of flow.

B. Upstands:

  1. Apply the 1500 WM-UV membrane directly on the concrete up-stand with Neofil S10 contact adhesive
  2. Secure top termination of waterproofing with continuous, Aluminum flashing strip, and Elastoseal PU25, a Polyurethane sealant from Colmef.

C. Seam Installation: Hot air welding and end laps of overlapping sheets according to manufacturer's method statement to ensure a watertight seam installation. Inspect outside edge of seams with pointed metal probe and ensure completed laps lay flat through one of the following methods:

  1. Method 1: All seams of installed waterproofing can be subject to pneumatic test at test pressure of 2.00 bars.
  2. Method 2: Testing the welded joint using a vacuum test machine

D. Any hole, resulting from construction activities, noted in installed membrane shall be repaired in accordance with manufacturer’s method statement.


A. Install corner details in accordance to waterproofing manufacturer's written

  1. Use same welding system as specified for membrane.
  • Do not directly apply the PVC membrane permanently on bitumen and plastics other than PVC, a separation layer of geotextile is required.
  • The PVC Membrane can be exposed to UV light permanently.
  • Insuwrap 1500 WM-UV can be exposed temporary to ground water or polluted water with temperature up to 50°C for 3 months.
