Long term protection from the elements
Exposed structures such as flat roofs, terraces, car parks and thresholds require the best protection from the most punishing factors – water, abrasion and UV. Not only that, they often have to look good. Silikal’s PMMA heavy-duty sealants offer the best protection with an attractive finish.
Depending on the application temperature, PMMA hardens and can take traffic in a rapid manner, in much the same way as our other MMA products. In ‘average’ UK temperatures, products cure in around 40 minutes. Other systems such as PU coatings can take up to three days in comparison.
Not only is Silikal PMMA fast curing and highly waterproof, it is also extremely flexible. It can act as a waterproofing agent across problematic areas such as thresholds or changes in building material. The flexibility also aids the safe passage of movement sensitive items such as cables through water resistant areas.
When it comes to durability, it’s not just about traffic. Water, abrasion and UV light are the enemies of waterproof surfaces. Silikal’s team of experts place great emphasis on the quality of the PMMA and ensure that each batch is designed to be long-lasting.
Uses for PMMA
Wherever there is a need for long-term waterproofing our PMMA can handle it. Common applications include: flat roof sealing, terraces and balconies and also long-term wet areas such as swimming pools. On a larger scale, PMMA is used to protect car park decks and bridges to ensure that ingress of water is prevented in an area that can take a lot of punishment.
