This innovative EPDM membrane backed with glass fibre achieves outstanding material properties through a special production process at SaarGummi’s factory in Germany.
The glass fibre is applied onto unvulcanised NovoProof® EPDM rubber during an ongoing process. Both components then go through the vulcanisation process, from which a permanent bonding is created that can only be destroyed by strong forces.
The patent pending NovoProof® DA-FG achieves extremely high design loads in the wind uplift test and is thus the answer to the increasingly stringent requirements on roofing membrane products. The glass fibre improves simultaneously the fire performance of the membrane. The roofing membrane is fire-retardant without using any environmentally hazardous flame retardants.
With a slim material structure, NovoProof® DA-FG can be laid directly on the unbacked EPS insulation boards, while it still fulfils the requirements of hard roofs (Broof t1). An additional layer of glass fleece can therefore be saved, as otherwise may be necessary. With mechanically attached system, NovoProof® DA-FG is also certified as Broof (t3) according to the standard DIN EN 13501-5, which examines the external fire performance of a roof waterproofing system.
This root-resistant membrane is assembled by the proven and user-friendly ThermoFast® welding technology.
