Roof Refurbishment, IKON Gallery, Birmingham
The Licensed Contractor specified the Cold Melt® seamless waterproofing system to extend the lifespan of the roof. Following the removal of the paving slabs, the wet deck below the slabs was then prepared and sealed with Proteus DPM primer, which can be laid over saturated concrete. This allowed for the immediate application of the Cold Melt® system which cured overnight, so that the paving slabs could be reinstated in a sand and cement screed.

With the building set in a pedestrian area, the low odour application allowed the Proteus Licenced Contractor to work safely and with minimal disruption to employees and members of the public.
