Underlay membrane with 3D separation mesh and self-adhesive strips

Advantages

  • Highest possible durability and thermostability thanks to the TEEE membrane
  • Reliable drying out: highly permeable (sd value = 0.05 m ; g value = 0.25 MN·s/g ; 65 US perms)
  • Protects against corrosion and ensures improved noise insulation thanks to the 3D separation mesh
  • Dry building components thanks to pore-free TEEE membrane that is resistant to driving rain
  • Up to 3 months of outdoor exposure
  • Quick and reliable adhesion thanks to the integrated ‘connect’ self-adhesive zones on the long edges of the membrane

Areas of application

For use as a roof lining or facade membrane for ventilated and non-ventilated structures in combination with all roof and facade materials such as titanium zinc, aluminium, stainless steel, galvanised steel, copper etc. Fibrous membranes offer greater protection for structures and are recommended by leading providers of metal roofs for this reason. The 8 mm (5/16”) thick 3D separation mesh made of fibrous PP protects the covering against waterlogging and dampens noise caused by rain or hail.

Planning and construction guidelines

Areas of application

pro clima SOLITEX UM connect can be installed as an underlay membrane on even roof decking made of solid wood or wood-based panels, underneath metal coverings.
It stops cold external air from flowing through the building structure and ensures that the thermal insulation works in an optimal manner.

  • Suitable for ventilated and non-ventilated structures in combination with all roof and facade materials such as titanium zinc, aluminium, stainless steel, galvanised steel, copper etc.
  • Fibrous membranes protect the structure against permanent moisture and sheet metal corrosion. For this reason, they are recommended by leading providers of metal roofs.
  • The 8 mm (5/16") thick 3D separating layer made of fibrous PP protects the covering against waterlogging and dampens noise caused by rain or hail.

Dark marks may form on the membrane as a result of rainwater.
These have no influence on the high level of watertightness and the effectiveness of the interior membrane.

Increased indoor humidity

These highly permeable membranes allow moisture to dry out of the structure to the outside more easily and more quickly.
This is advantageous both during the construction phase and during normal use (when moisture from indoor air penetrates into the structure by diffusion or convection).
As a rule, moisture due to construction work should be able to escape the building structure quickly by ventilation through open windows.
Dryers can help to speed up the drying process in wintertime.
This helps to avoid permanently high levels of relative humidity.

No tent effect

The pore-free SOLITEX UM membrane offers particularly good seal tightness against driving rain.
The membrane can be applied over the surface of insulation materials or roof decking.
A tent effect is reliably prevented by the monolithic functional film and the multi-layer structure.
The term ‘tent effect’ describes the phenomenon whereby waterproof tent sheets allow large amounts of moisture into tents at points where they are in contact with inside objects.
