RESITRIX® for Installers
"... TIME IS MONEY! THE RESITRIX® MEMBRANES CAN BE INSTALLED QUCKLY, SAFE AND SIMPLE AND EVERYTHING IS ABSOLUTELY WATERPROOF – THIS I CAN SEE IMMEDIATELY! ALSO I CAN BE SURE THAT THE ROOF STAYS 100% WATERTIGHT FOR MANY YEARS.”
1. Life Expectancy and Proven Quality
Permanently sealed flat roofs which still look perfect even after decades of installation, are the best possible reference a first-class installer can obtain. This will lead to an excellent reputation regarding waterproofing of roofs and the positive image generated will enhance his future business and lead to an increase in orders in general.
In addition, an installer working with RESITRIX® is seen to be working in the high-quality segment of the waterproofing market, where one does not have to compete with inferior products of questionable quality nor deal with the intense price competition typically associated with the mass market.Working with RESITRIX® puts the installer in the position of being able to offer something unique because there is no other material on the market which is comparable with RESITRIX®. Quality is what counts in the end and, since building today is a matter of trust and buildings are still ‘built for life,’ this will emphasise the responsible reputation of the installer
2. Simple, safe seams
The installer can check instantly whether the seam is 100% watertight, by simply looking for the visible welding bead which emerges from the lap as the RESITRIX® is being welded with hot-air. This can be done simultaneously whilst welding continues, significantly saving time and therefore, also money. The laps can be welded together with complete confidence even in adverse weather conditions and temperatures down to minus10°C – this is comprehensively documented and certificated. Complicated parameter settings on the heat-welding equipment are unnecessary - simply turn the temperature up full and adjust the speed to achieve the required welding bead. In this way, the installer can achieve optimum productivity.
3. Compatible with all plasticiser-free materials
RESITRIX® can be applied safely to all plasticiser-free materials, even where they have been installed for decades on the roof – overlaying existing roofs with RESITRIX® is always easy, without the need for any great precautions.
RESITRIX® is also ideal for repairs on isolated areas of the roof - a roller and a tin of RESITRIX® FG 35 surface primer is sufficient to resolve all issues and problems on the roof, safely and permanently.
4. Weldability anywhere anytime
RESITRIX® can be welded anywhere and at anytime, - without the need for additional laborious preparation such as grinding, solvent cleaning, taping, splicing or complicated planning.
There is a very simple formula: “Even after 25 years of service on the roof, just clean the surface quickly, weld RESITRIX® onto the surface and the roof is watertight.”
Also installing RESITRIX® on other plasticiser-free materials is quickly and easily achieved together with the surface primer FG 35.
Lengthy and expensive roof surveys and laboratory tests to determine what could actually be installed on the roof, are completely eliminated. The integrity of repairs to an existing roof is assured, whether RESITRIX® is applied to the whole roof or just isolated areas.
For example, leaking roofs to commercial or domestic properties which require an immediate and flawless repair, can be completed quickly, safely, easily and permanently with RESITRIX®.
5. No naked flames – No fire on the roof
No naked flames are required when installing RESITRIX® - thus entirely eliminating the fire risk. Not only does this significantly reduce insurance premiums, it also makes all precautionary measures that are required for hot works, completely unnecessary.
So RESITRIX® meets the requirements of every type of project, regardless of whether it is to be installed on a chemical laboratory, or other sensitive industry, because it is installed simply using hot-air and does not therefore constitute a fire risk.
6. Correctly estimating
The installed price per square metre for RESITRIX® waterproofing
membranes, is comparable with other high
performance materials. During the past 35 years RESITRIX® has proven
extremely profitable for the installer. Expensive accessories can be omitted, actual
hours worked on the roof are reduced, so that more projects can be executed and
completed, with a high quality result at the end. Customers and clients want
quality on the roof to protect their property and possessions permanently. With
just a single layer of RESITRIX,® the roof is permanently sealed - the cost of installing several additional
layers would have to be justified to the building owner and is totally unnecessary.
In contrast, the installer can offer his clients a waterproofing membrane directly
from a German manufacturer, which has a proven life expectancy of more than 50
years and will protect the building permanently against external influences. This
is also a positive point for the environment and will permit an enormous
reduction in environmental pollution. A direct price comparison with similar or
interchangeable products within the industry does not exist at the present time
