The Benefits of Mastic Asphalt Roofing

Mastic Asphalt is one of the best waterproofing materials on the market. It is time tested and carbon zero rated. No other waterproofing product can boast a carbon zero rating close to this. This is what makes mastic asphalt so popular for waterproofing. As a waterproofing solution it can be seen across a multitude of surfaces including, asphalt car parks, asphalt flooring, tanking and balconies.

In addition, Mastic Asphalt is a totally recyclable material meaning it is an environmentally friendly choice for a waterproofing system for your roof.

The hot molten liquid of mastic asphalt can be laid to perfectly mould around all manner of tight awkward spaces on a roof such as piping and upstands.

Aggregates can also be added to provide different properties such as extra traction to prevent slipping in wet conditions. And the addition of 30% grit for extra hardness to withstand the demands of a busy car park.

Asphalt spreaders are required to complete a minimum of a 2 year NVQ, this is a far longer period than the week-long courses which are currently available to start working on other roofing systems.

Now with IKO Permascreed, there is no long waiting time for the screed to cure before laying. This isn’t the case when sand and cement was used where 7 days curing time would have to pass.

As well as providing a stable base for the mastic asphalt system, Permascreed is also designed to provide drainage falls.

The can be left without rainwater ingression into the system. And there is no need for core venting to draw out trapped water which is the case when other screeds are used.

Solar Reflective Paint for Asphalt Roofs

Solar reflective paint is always specified for asphalt roofing. This disperses heat from the roof and provides a decorative finish to the roofing system. In the picture below of the asphalt roof installation we carried out. You can see the light grey colour of the UV solar reflective paint which was applied to the mastic asphalt at the end of the project.
