Indicators / Standards
RUVIMAT SP 8 is produced in compliance with EN 13956 : 2012 .
Клас F acc. European classification for reaction to fire EN 13501-1.
Rolled sheet membrane, reinforced
- Top layer – light blue ( RAL 5015) or dark blue (RAL 5005)
- Middle layer – polyester scrim
- Bottom layer – dark gray
Each roll is packed in a transparent polyethylene film
Roll length: 30 m
Roll width: 2 m
Rolls must be stored in horizontal direction on the pallets in the original packing without direct exposure to sunlight, rain and snow. Storage following these rules guarantees no expiry date.
Do not double stack the pallets during transport and storage.
The surface of the base and walls of the pool must be firm, smooth , without sharp protrusions , clean and dry , free of oils , paint , dust etc. Before the laying of the membrane should be placed a layer of geotextile .
RUVIMAT SP 8 can be applied on territories where temperature of the environment is not less than – 40 °C , and the constant temperature should be not higher than +50 °C.
Compatibility: It is not allowable direct contact with the polymers of other groups, such as polystyrene, polyurethane, polyisocyanate, phenol containing foam.
The membrane is not resistant to bituminous materials , grease, tar , oils , solvents . If it is in contact with such surfaces , has to be used a separation layer of geotextile with a density of min.300g / m² , in order to be preventable the accelerated aging.
Technology of the installation / Tools
Technology of the installation: Technology of the installation : In compliance with the existing Installation manual for roofing membrane Ruvimat.
Method of attachment: Free installation with a mechanical fixing. The sheets of the waterproofing membrane are free layed and mechanically fastened to the base by the end of the coil in the area of sheets overlapping , or outside this area. It is imperative that the additional mechanical fixing of the membrane around the perimeter of the swimming pool. Estimate for the quantity of linings is performed by the technical department of the company providing the installation
Technology of the welding : The overlaps ( from 80 to 100 mm) of the membrane must be welded by electric tools with hot air, hand held heat gun and roller or welding automatic tools with hot air, that have indiviul setting and control of welding temperature with a capacity of minimum +600°С.
Recommended mode for the equipment :
Welding parameters – The parameters of the welding process include temperature, welding speed, air stream, pressure must be chosen and checked according the weather conditions and the type of welding tools on the building area right before the welding process starts. The width of the joint must be at least 30 mm. The quality control is done with a screwdriver after the joint is cooled. All the unwelded points must be repaired with the welding tools.
After completing the membrane installation must be tested the watertightness of the system.
The application of PVC membrane RUVIMAT SP 8 must be performed by people that have passed a training course.
Temperature of the deck : minimum -20°C / maximum +50°C. Temperature of the environment : minimum -15°C / maximum +50°C.
The application of chemical components, such as contact adhesives / cleaner for membranes of PVC is possible at temperature not lower than +5 ° C. Please contact for technical information on these products before use.
