Impermax B1K and Impermax LY are 1-component liquid roofing materials that can be used for many applications such as waterproofing roof penetrations or entire roofs. In this article you can read more about the differences between the two types and discover how to process Impermax yourself!
Impermax B1K is a high quality roofing material. It consists of a 1-component polyurethane-bitumen with solvents and creates a seamless and waterproof membrane. Impermax B1K can be used for various applications and is easy to apply over existing roofs, directly on bitumen, PVC, EPDM and wood without primer.
Impermax B1K can also be used to repair old roofs by covering them, either completely or just to fill in details such as cracks. You can easily apply one coat with a consumption of 1 kg/m², allowing you to modernise your old roof. A 2-coat system with Impermax fleece is equivalent to full coverage with a consumption of 2.5 kg/m².
Impermax LY is a white roofing material. It forms an aromatic, waterproof polyurethane membrane on roofs, balconies and terraces. Thanks to its white colour, it retains less heat and reflects sunlight. This means that solar panels perform even better at low temperatures. Efficiency increases by up to 10%, making Impermax LY an ideal roof covering for solar panels.
The LY in the name stands for Light Yellowing. As it is an aromatic system, it discolours slightly over time.
Both types of Impermax are applied in the same way and are easy to use. For optimum adhesion, we recommend working on a flat surface free of dust, loose particles, oil, etc. Cracks should first be repaired with Impermax non-woven. Treat your Impermax at a minimum temperature of 5°C. Always wear covering clothing when working with Impermax.
Consumption: 1 kg/m²
Consumption: 2.5 kg/m²
Under normal conditions, the membrane will reach 90% of its full properties within three days. After 1 or 2 days, it can be walked on. Optimum hardness is reached after 10-15 days.
