Reflective Waterproofing Membrane under Slate Roofs.
Waterproofing layer laid under slate roofing tiles.
- Long lasting.
- Prevent ingress of dust.
Bonding / Priming
No priming required.
Starting at the lowest point of the slope, roll slatex 2000 out across the roof parallel to the eaves. The aluminium foil strip must face upward on the lower half of the slatex. The slatex 2000 is then nailed, with large headed copper clout nails, through the unprotected felt, onto a batten. In aggressive coastal environments it is safer to use Muntz metal (63 copper, 36 zinc, 1 tin) clout nails if available. After slating over the aluminium area the next strip of slatex 2000 is applied in similar fashion so that the aluminium foil coated area of the second sheet overlaps the uncoated strip of the first sheet.
Work proceeds up the slope of the roof until the entire area has been slated. End laps in the felt must be overlapped by a minimum of 150mm.
slatex 2000 is supplied in rolls of 20 m x 450mm.
