The adhesion of DRIPSTOP to the roofing is ensured by a special waterproof adhesive, the structure and properties of which are not subject to the influence of aging.
For the entire cycle to work properly, the foil needs to dry during the day. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure adequate ventilation in the building.
The adhesion of DR!PSTOP to the trapezoidal sheet is ensured by a special waterproof adhesive, the structure and properties of which are not subject to the influence of aging.
– No more dripping from the open roof into the covered area
– Durability – DRIPSTOP is resistant to tearing and abrasion and is not destroyed like common isolation
– Easy to clean, either with water from a hose or by pressure washing
– Flammability A2 – s1, d0 (EN 13501/1)
– Resistance to bacteria
– Improving the acoustics of buildings (echoes will be reduced)
– Rain noise reduction: -3dB
– Water absorption: 700-900 g/m2
DRIPSTOP – is resistant to most chemicals that normally come into contact with the material
– however, it should not come into contact with any solvent, grease, oil, etc.
HOW TO PREVENT CAPILLARITY
To prevent capillary formation, it is important not to place DRIPSTOP where the metal sheets overlap.
In longitudinal joints, this problem is solved by making the width of the anti-condensation foil a few centimetres narrower than the metal sheet itself.
However, more attention should be paid to places where the metal sheets overlap transversely and where water drains from the roof to the gutter.
In case of transverse overlap, the last 5 – 10 cm of the foil should be adjusted, and in case of overlap over the gutter, it is sufficient to adjust approximately 5 cm.
The assembly of trapezoidal sheets with anti-condensation foil can only be done by a plumber who is trained and knows all the procedures and modifications of the sheets for placement on the construction site.
Anti-condensation foil DRIPSTOP is applied to the inside of trapezoidal sheets and its purpose is to prevent condensate from dripping into the interior of the building. It is mainly used in not isolated warehouses, where condensate forms on the inside of the trapezoidal sheet due to changes in external temperatures. It then drips down and can damage stored goods.
Furthermore, this treatment is often used in agricultural buildings, where due to the high concentration of moisture from housed animals, a large amount of condensation forms on the ceiling and on the isolated roof.
It is used wherever dripping condensate from the ceiling would cause a problem.
The joint is permanent. DRIPSTOP material cannot be removed and re-glued.
If DRIPSTOP is used in stables or barn, we recommend washing it at least once a year with an antifungal agent. When installing the covering, you must eliminate the phenomenon of capillary separation.
