3-ply sarking and roof lining membrane, very high wear-resistance, high resistance to driving rain, very high thermal stability, with 2 integrated self-adhesive sections



  • Highly permeable and at the same time, maximum resistance to driving rain, water column 10 000 mm (32' 10")
  • Optimum drying conditions for roof structures: non-porous TEEE functional membrane actively transports moisture outwards
  • Maximum ageing resistance and thermal stability thanks to the TEEE membrane
  • 4 months of outdoor exposure. Suitable for temporary roof coverings as specified in the ZVDH product data sheet
  • Quick and reliable adhesion as a result of integrated connect self-adhesive zones along the length of the membrane


3-ply highly permeable roof lining and sarking membrane which is suitable for laying on boarding, MDF and fibreboard roof lining panels and insulating mats and boards.

Installation instructions

General conditions

SOLITEX MENTO membranes should be laid with the printed side facing the installer. The membranes are to be installed as an underlay or sarking membrane horizontally (parallel to the eave) in a taut manner with no sagging. When using as a sarking membrane the spacing between the rafters is restricted to 100 cm (3' 3").

The membrane must not be secured in areas where water collectively drains off (e.g. in grooves).

In the case of uninsulated, undeveloped attic floors, ridge ventilation should be provided. For this purpose, the SOLITEX membrane should finish 5 cm (2") before the ridge. In addition, the undeveloped attic floor should be provided with permanent ventilation devices.

To protect the structure during the building phase, as specified by ZVDH ('Zen­t­ral­verb­and des Deutschen Dachdeck­er­handwerks' - Na­tion­al As­so­ci­ation of the Ger­man Roof­ing Trade), SOLITEX MENTO 3000 roof lining and sarking membrane can be used as a temporary roof cover for up to 4 months. In this case the roof pitch must be at least 14°. The system components TESCON NAIDECK nail sealing tape, ORCON F joint adhesive and TESCON VANA for sticking overlaps or joints must be used. The connect version has two self-adhesive zones for secure exterior sealing. The standards and guidelines of the German roofing trade association must be observed during installation and sealing.

According to the technical regulations of the roofing trade association, they are suitable as a sarking membrane for covering a tiled roof with simple overlapping as an additional protective measure against rain. When using as a roof lining membrane with simple overlapping on a timber shell, the SOLITEX MENTO membranes are also suitable at elevated requirements as an additional protective measure against rain.
