For a natural product that can be applied in many ways, mastic asphalt can be applied to roofs, floors and is often used for tanking areas to provide a continuous, seamless waterproof lining to walls, floors, balconies etc.
Mastic asphalt roofing can be applied to form a continuous waterproof covering over flat, sloped or curved surfaces and can be worked around pipes, roof lights and other projections.
Mastic asphalt can be laid on most types of rigid sub-structures such as concrete, timber and metal decking. Furthermore, thermal insulation materials can be easily laid as part of a mastic asphalt roofing specification to give any required U-value.
To waterproof material such as extensive green roofs, intensive roof gardens and biodiversity roofs, mastic asphalt is ideal. It is completely resistant to root penetration and does not require an additional anti-root barrier. Mastic asphalt flooring is normally laid with a matt or natural float finish. Once installed, it offers a quality, dust free, seamless and user-friendly surface. This makes it perfect for industrial applications where there are likely to be high levels of traffic from forklifts and similar types of vehicles.
A mastic asphalt floor provides a hard wearing, durable surface which will resist the passage of dampness and which can be brought into service as soon as it has cooled to ambient temperature. The material’s sheer versatility, inherent waterproofing properties and wearing qualities make it the obvious choice for many specifications.
