7. LASTOFLEX ST
Elastotet S.A. / Canada Rubber Polska Sp. z o.o.
Lastoflex ST is a liquid silicone coating. This is a modern and innovative product for the surface waterproofing industry. Compared to liquid isolation products available on the market, it has the greatest number of advantages, both chemically, physically and in application. The product is vapour-permeable, does not require primer, is applied in one layer (all other membranes must be applied in two layers) and resistant to UV and ageing. Excellent elastic properties even at very low temperatures (-40 °C). Perfect crack bridging properties. Excellent thermal resistance. The membrane does not become soft or sticky at high temperatures (+80 °C). Zero chalking effect. The white colour of the membrane is the reason for classifying it into the 'cold roof' group (SRI 0.88), which means that it strongly reflects solar radiation and does not heat the surface on which it is applied. To sum up, Lastoflex ST is a product that can definitely speed up the work of contractors, providing in return a membrane with a 25-year service life and a long guaranteed period of full waterproofing.
