Protectoboard is a protection and roof recovery board fabricated with a bituminous core sandwiched between two layers of non-woven glass fibre reinforcement. It offers durable and reliable performance, and is fully compatible with a range of bituminous and non-bituminous waterproofing systems. Owing to its high strength, excellent puncture resistance and non-compressible nature, Protectoboard exceeds the performance of other thicker boards, offering cost savings, better site handling and storage space reductions.

Protectoboard is a tough, flexible and stable roofing board that can be used for isolating and preparing the surface of existing roofing systems ready for the application of new bituminous roofing membranes, compatible polymeric membranes and liquid waterproofing systems. It can also be used for the temporary or permanent protection of finished waterproofing systems prior to the application of final finishes.

Fixing:

  • Roof recovery/ Surface preparation board: Protectoboard can be mechanically fixed or bonded in hot bitumen or Permanite’s PU Adhesive; consult manufacturer for details.
  • Used as protection for finished waterproofing: For permanent protection of the waterproofing membrane, prior to the application surface finishes, install Protectoboard in accordance with Permanite specifications. For main flat areas, Protectoboard can be loose laid, bonded in hot bitumen/ suitable adhesive or fixed with a suitable double-sided adhesive tape; consult manufacturer for details.
