Testing CONTROLIT GS material
To assess the feasibility of the Buckleys dry & wet leak detection methods to test CONTROLIT GS material layer installed beneath single ply membranes.
Use a Buckleys PD Range Roof Leak Detector or a Buckleys Wet Roof Pro' to conduct the tests.
Sample 1: IKO Armourplan P 1.2mm metal deck
Sample 2: Sika-Trocal 1.2mm metal deck
Sample 3: Cefil RP 1.2 1.2mm metal deck
sample 4: Sika S327-12EL 1.2mm metal deck
After completing 4 sample tests we found that the CONTROLIT layer can be successfully used as an aid when testing for faults in non-conductive membranes. The CONTROLIT material is also advantageous when testing on timber framed roofs.
