TECHNOELAST K-YS 5500 material can be used as cap sheet in fully or partially adhered waterproofing on flat or pitched roofs as well as single ply waterproofing when fixed mechanically with fully bonded overlaps by means of torch on applications.

TECHNOELAST K-YS 5500 membranes are applied by traditional Torch – On methods onto previously installed base layer/underlay, clear of any debris or sharp projections, primers shall be used to prepare substrate for achieving most effective waterproofing longevity. The membranes should be heated carefully ensuring the complete melt of dispersible film as work proceeds and maintaining 5 mm bead extrusion from all laps. Side laps must follow the manufactured mineral free pilot selvedge with end laps at minimum of 100 mm. The cap sheet should be offset 300 mm from the underlay to avoid side build up.
