Sika’s heavy metal-free PVC roofing membrane

IA19_Pict_RISE_PVCIntended for mechanically fastened, exposed flat roofs, Sika’s new roofing membrane maintains long-term durability and fire resistance without using heavy metals. To be first launched in Europe, it is a polyester-reinforced, multi-layer waterproofing membrane based on premium-quality PVC. It has excellent flexibility at cold temperatures, has high resistance to mechanical impact and emits far fewer emissions from hot air welding. It can be easily recycled and incorporated into the production process.
