  • Publication number: 20210171808
    Abstract: A sealing device includes a waterproofing membrane, an adhesive sealant layer, and optionally a release liner, wherein the adhesive sealant layer includes at least one elastomer, at least one at 25° C. liquid polyolefin resin, and at least one inert mineral filler. An adhesive sealant composition is used to form the adhesive sealant layer. The sealant device may be used to waterproof a substrate and provide a fully-adhered roof system. The adhesive sealant composition may be used to provide a self-healing roofing membrane.

  • Publication number: 20210172174
    Abstract: A sealing device including a waterproofing layer, a functional layer, and a reinforcement layer fully embedded into the waterproofing layer or located between the waterproofing layer and the functional layer and/or a second waterproofing layer located on the outward facing side of the waterproofing layer opposite the side of the functional layer. Further, a method for producing a sealing device, to a method for waterproofing a substrate using one or more sealing devices, and to a roof system comprising a roof substrate and a sealing device directly adhered to the surface of the roof substrate with a layer of adhesive.

  • Patent number: 9428912
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a membrane comprising a bulkhead layer, wherein more than 50% by weight of the bulkhead layer is composed of PVC, and a barrier layer. The barrier layer can, on the one hand, be a barrier layer S1, wherein the barrier layer S1 has a polyvinyl alcohol layer comprising more than 50% by weight of copolymer PA, which is connected to the bulkhead layer by a polyurethane layer, wherein more than 10% by weight of the polyurethane layer is composed of polyurethane PUR. The barrier layer can, on the other hand, be a barrier layer S2, wherein the barrier layer S2 has a composition comprising 5-50% by weight of polyurethane PUR and 50-95% by weight of copolymer PA. The membranes according to the invention have significantly lower plasticizer migration compared to the membranes of the prior art and are distinguished by improved resistance to aging, particularly as regards the adherence of the barrier layer on the bulkhead layer, and imperviousness to damp.

  • Patent number: 9284733
    Abstract: A sealing web including the following layer structure: a) a film containing polyvinyl chloride; b) a first adhesive; c) a polyethylene terephthalate film; and d) a second adhesive; wherein the layers are disposed in the sequence a), b), c), and d). The sealing web makes it possible to implement adhesion of a PVC web over a large area, without problems arising from the migration of the plasticizer from the PVC film to the adhesive, or in that said problems are at least greatly reduced.
