Is a water based, environmentally friendly, cross linking polymer that increases the compressive and tensile strength of virtually all soils and waste materials.
Protocol for flat roofing concept using AggreBind
WATERPROOFING ROOFING AND FLAT SURFACES – The main cause of the problems associated with a flat roof are heat, moisture , structural movement , and inadequate drainage
Clean the roof thoroughly and remove any debris, grass, weeds etc
Identify areas where the roof leaks and correct if necessary.
Check for blockages in the drainage system and correct if necessary.
For surface cracks : Mix 1 part fine sand with AGB and 3 parts water ( Slurry AggreBind ).
Fill all visible cracks with on pasta (Slurry AggreBind). After 1 hour spray total surface covered with a mixture of 1 part of AGB diluted with 3 parts water.
Leave for 1 hour and then spray the area again with the same mixture. Do not use the roof area for 2 hours. Do not install the AGB mixture if rain or frost is imminent
