Big Dutchman, Tarnowo Podgórne (PL)

The aim of the “Big Dutchman” steel roof refurbishment was to reliably waterproof the leaky junctions of skylights and the water-permeable sheet metal overlaps at the edge of the roof. PHU Dekpo’s waterproofing specialists carefully prepared the trapezoidal sheet metal roof for the waterproofing work. The refurbishment was carried out with Triflex ProDetail, the liquid PMMA-based waterproofing resin. This special solution prevents underflow on the roof and adhesion to metal. Previous
priming of the surface is not necessary. Since Triflex ProDetail can be processed at temperatures down to -5°C, carrying out the refurbishment work in December was not a problem. As the material is completely cured after only 45 minutes, the cold-applied PMMA resin means construction work can be carried out quickly and irrespective of the weather.

Refurbishment requirements

  • Long-term protection and extended refurbishment intervals
  • Adhesion to metal preventing underflow on the roof
  • Refurbishment work also in December
  • Fast, execution of construction work irrespective of the weather
