DURAmembrane is a new offering in the portfolio of competent and DURAble products of 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 and is resistant to salts, alkalis, and most acids. "Supreme is the only manufacturer of this type of water proofing membrane in India. It can be used for applications like - concrete roof waterproofing, basement waterproofing and also water proofing of bathrooms & terrace gardens. DURAmembrane can not only be used in new constructions but also at the time of repair of a structure," points out Ajay Mohta.
It does not absorb water at all. Its 'K' value does not deteriorate. Talking about evaluation against bitumen based products Mr. Mohta said - "we all know that bitumen disintegrates after contact with water. Further, over a period it catches fungi and also starts melting during summer, thus lowering its puncture resistant strength. The striking feature of DURAmembrane is that it has a very good puncture resistance of 199 N (Test method - ASTM E154: 1999) and being polymer based, it won't deteriorate also over a long period."
