DURA range of product
Apart from this, the company also makes available DURAvapourbarrier (Formerly SIL VAPOUR BARRIER), which is a high performance multilayer microcell PE film for water vapor barrier applications. Similarly, DURAprotector (Formerly MEMBRANE PROTECTION BOARD), another product of the company which is chemically cross linked block foam for protection of waterproofing membranes, liquid applied waterproofing membranes in horizontal and vertical applications. DURAfill (Formerly known as SILFIL) is an alkali resistant, closed cell polymer based board for black cotton soil barrier, weak soil foundation and the latest addition to the portfolio is the newly launched 'DURAmembrane' for all types of waterproofing applications.
DURAmembraneAmong its various innovative products, the Supreme Industries has added DURAmembrane, a new offering in the portfolio of competent and 'DURAble' products for the Construction Accessories Division. DURAmembrane is a new generation, cost effective solution for waterproofing of basements and roofs. It is a versatile material, capable of retaining the dryness of concrete, masonry, metal and wood structures. It is also resistant to salts, alkalis and various types of acids. In fact, the product is a high performance, composite polymeric membrane offering a quick and easy-to-apply system, ensuring hassle-free maximum productivity.
The company launched the new product as there was a continuous demand from innumerable satisfied customers to develop waterproofing solutions to solve the leakage problems in their factories and offices. They were not satisfied with the current waterproofing systems available in the market after which company's research and development team started working full-fledged on the project to develop a composite of various polymers cross linked and fused resulting in this exclusive high performance membrane. The most striking advantage of the product is that it can be used in new constructions and also at the time of repairing the old structures. The Supreme Industries, which is the only manufacturer of this type of waterproofing membrane in India, has planned to use DURA membrane for applications including concrete roof waterproofing, basement waterproofing, water proofing of bathrooms, and terrace gardens.
Striking featuresDURAmembrane is a high performance composite polymeric membrane, which is durable, lightweight, non-deteriorating, punctures resistant, is available in length stretching up-to 50 meters. It is now crystal clear that bitumen disintegrates after contact with water and also catches fungi after which it starts melting during summer due to lessening of its puncture resistant strength. In contrast, DURAmembrane has a very good puncture resistance of 199 N (Test method - ASTM E154: 1999) and because it is polymer based it won't deteriorate. That apart, none of the waterproofing solution systems provide any added advantage except waterproofing whereas DURAmembrane is not only 100% waterproof but also an excellent insulating material. Other treatments have a tendency to absorb moisture and conduct heat but DURAmembrane does not absorb water at all. Its 'K' value does not deteriorate because its inherent closed cell structure ensures truly effective thermal insulation and waterproofing for a life time.
Excellent in extreme conditionsIn view of the unpredictable climatic conditions in India where the ambient temperature varies between 0 to 50°C, the overlaying treatment must withstand the corresponding variation in temperature from 1 to 65°C. DURAmembrane meets these challenges with complete and effortless ease and can withstand temperature ranging from -40 to +115°C.
Any roof treatment has to contend with the unrelenting assault of surface expansion and contraction due to daily or seasonal temperature variations. Further, roof treatments have to withstand more than just surface expansion and contraction including structural movements during sudden drop in temperature resulting in thermal shocks. DURAmembrane has an excellent elongation and tensile strength that enables it to take all movements in its stride. It is fracture, crumble, shatter and abrasion proof and resistant to most corrosive chemicals.
