What is Behind the Appeal of Flame Applied Waterproofing?
Waterproofing is different to other aspects of the construction industry, as there is zero room for any mistakes. It simply has to be 100% perfect, or else it results in failure. You need to partner with an expert in waterproofing solutions in South Africa, in order to rule out the possibility of failure. At Gast, we make use of the very latest flame applied waterproofing solutions available on the market.
This form of waterproofing uses a product that is heat-fused to underlying substrates. Our team uses 4mm modified Bitumen rolls, and its applications extend to roofs or parking decks, among other areas. We are proud of our long history of service and excellent track record in this area of our operations, and we only continue to work hard to lead our sector forward in innovation.
There are many reasons that support flame applied waterproofing’s popularity in the marketplace. Here are only a few of the many benefits that you can expect from this form of waterproofing:

- It provides exceptional stability at both high and low temperatures; and
- It can easily be coated with paint for colour coding, among many others.
Flame applied waterproofing offers higher tear and impact resistance, as well as excellent elasticity. These features are present even at lower temperatures than other membranes. The waterproofing can be used in light foot traffic areas, without fear of losing its efficacy. At Gast, we are skilled flame applied waterproofing applicators, as the importance of its correct installation is crucial, otherwise the waterproofing fails.
