Flame-retardant roof insulation foil
The client wanted a flame-retardant, UV-resistant adhesive that demonstrates high bond strength on fleece and the various foils (polypropylene or aluminised membrane).
The path to our solution
A specially developed powder mixture of various polyolefins, some modified, and a high level of flame retardant produced adhesive bonds with high bond strengths. We then carried out a long-term UV test and a fire test with the adhesive, which it passed.
The client sources the adhesive exclusively from Abifor, as the product is prescribed for all roofing membranes. As this adhesive bond is cheaper in comparison to the one previously used, the client was able to expand their business. The client now operates two coating systems.
The following application technique was used for this project:
