Torch-On Membranes - as seen on The Block NZ 2019

Viking Torch-On is a two-layer bitumen waterproofing system.

With New Zealand's diverse topography, Viking recognised the importance of providing the market with bituminous membrane systems, manufactured from different compounds, that maximise their performance by withstanding our country's climatic extremes.

Viking Roofspec offers three fit -for-climate BRANZ appraised torch-on solutions. Specialising in modified bitumen technology, Italian supplier General Membrane provides Viking Roofspec with exclusive and code-compliant plasticised (APP), rubberised (SBS), and hybrid (APAO) torch-on systems.

Viking Torch-On Phoenix Super APAO is CodeMark and BBA (British Board of Agreement) certified. BBA is one of the world’s highest accreditations for a construction product.

Viking Gemini APP

APP membrane systems represent a significant share of Torch-On membranes used in the market. Made from 'plasticised' bitumen, these robust two-layer membranes are used for roofs and under floating decks and in gutters in New Zealand's Climate Zones 1 and 2 (the North Island excluding the volcanic plateau).

APP membranes have a high melt point when in contact with a flame and boast some of the highest-puncture resistance credentials in the market.

Viking Gemini APP consists of a 3mm thick sand finish base sheet as the first waterproofing layer, and a 4mm ceramic chip cap sheet installed on top.

Viking Lybra SBS

SBS membrane systems are designed for geographic locations that experience climatic extremes. Made from 'rubberised' bitumen, this two layered membrane type is used for roofs and under floating decks and in gutters mostly in New Zealand's Clime Zone 3 (the South Island and the North Island volcanic plateau).

SBS membranes have a lower melt point and high cold-flexibility credentials allowing them to be exposed to lower temperatures without fracturing.

Viking Lybra SBS consists of a 3mm thick sand finish base sheet as the first waterproofing layer, and a 4mm ceramic chip cap sheet installed on top.

Viking Phoenix Super APAO

Viking's ‘Platinum’ Solution can be installed anywhere in the world. It is an APAO membrane that incorporates the best of APP and SBS membrane features.

APAO Torch-On membranes have been designed for roofs and under floating decks and in gutters demonstrating all of the durability properties inherent in the Gemini APP membrane, with the elastomeric advantages in the Lybra SBS, resulting in a premium system. A key benefit is its unequalled cold flexibility down to (-35°C), coupled with high temperature resistance of +140°C. This means it can be used in any climate and will last longer than other systems.

Viking Roof Garden Anti-Root

Anti-Root membranes are used in roof garden projects to perform the important role of coercing plant and tree roots to turn away before membrane penetration through their inherent specialised chemical treatment.

These membranes also possess high latitudinal strength to forgive structural movement of a building.
