Below Grade: Slabs

In areas with high water tables or significant precipitation, waterproofing of below grade slabs and floors is necessary.  This requires a membrane that is applied before the concrete is poured.  These ”pre applied” membranes must have the toughness to resist punctures and tears during construction as well as support rebar.

Valéron film provides high strength in a thinner film that allows easier installation and detailing.
Properties

Valeron Film

  • Easy to place rebar on without damaging membrane
  • Same durability with added flexibility as compared to thicker film
  • Easy to detail, less likely to come off wall
  • Conformable to irregular shapes/corners

Below Grade:
Vertical Walls

In areas where below grade walls are at risk of water intrusion, sheet membranes are a good solution.  When access to the exterior wall is available, post applied, self-adhered sheet membranes are used.  When access to the exterior is limited “pre-applied” membranes are used. Valéron film provides the toughness and long-term durability to eliminate leaks in post and pre-applied below grade waterproofing membranes.
Properties

Valeron Film

  • Lightweight easy installation, doesn’t fall off the wall, don’t have to go back to mechanically attach
  • Easy to detail when attaching to construction
  • Holds up to back filling/strong durability
  • Puncture Resistant

Roof Underlayment

Roof Underlayment made with Valéron film handles the toughest duty in building waterproofing systems, especially in areas such as roof edges, valleys, eaves and skylights. Valéron film is puncture-resistant and adds strength to construction materials. It's superior low temperature performance allows installation even in winter temperatures. Roof Underlayment also meets ice prevention damage in sloping roofs.
Properties

Valeron Film

  • Cross Laminated process
  • Puncture Resistance: less accidental damage
  • Thermal Dimensional Stability: No fish-mouthing or controlled shrinkage
  • Cold temperature resistant down to -70°F/-57°C
  • High strength film allows roof underlayment to bridge gaps in sheathing and is resistant to damage from incidental movement and settling of the roof
  • UV Stability for typical job site exposure

Flashing Tape

Reduce call backs by using flashing tape made with Valéron. Flashing tape made with Valéron is used for sealing windows, chimneys, sky lights, expansion joints, doors and other building envelope penetrations by providing a reliable and durable water and air seal due to the unique properties of Valéron.
Properties

Valeron Film

  • Cross Laminated process
  • Puncture Resistance: less accidental damage
  • Thermal Dimensional Stability: No fish-mouthing or controlled shrinkage
  • 30+ years of proven performance as the industry standard for flashing tapes
  • Cold temperature resistant down to -70°F /-57°C
  • High strength film is less likely to be damaged by building movement
  • Helps membrane manufacturers meet requirements of AAMA-711

Through Wall Flashing

Through Wall Flashing is designed to provide moisture and water build-up protection in cavity wall construction. Through Wall Flashing has a self-adhesive nature that allows easy installation on concrete, masonry, gypsum, steel and wood substrates. The inherent durability of Valéron resists mechanical damage and ensures the integrity of the rubberized asphalt waterproofing membrane during subsequent wall construction.

Valéron provides a secondary waterproof barrier at flashing areas to prevent wall assembly leaks. Valéron is fully adhered to the substrate to prevent moisture migration behind the flashing. Detailing is easy to install, inspect and repair to insure the best possible performance.

Valeron Film

  • Cross Laminated process
  • Puncture Resistance: less accidental damage
  • Thermal Dimensional Stability: No fish-mouthing or controlled shrinkage
  • Cold temperature resistant down to -70°F /-57°C

Air Barrier

Air barriers made with Valéron produce a virtually impermeable air, vapor and water barrier on concrete, masonry, gypsum board and wood walls. Valéron reinforced membranes provide a cost-effective system providing a continuous seal against air, vapor, and moisture around the entire building.

Air barriers made with Valéron is puncture resistant, has low shrinkage, high tensile strength and cold temperature resistance to -70°F/-57°C. Other commercial air barriers do not provide the same level of performance as those made with Valéron.
Properties

Valeron Film

  • Cross Laminated process
  • Puncture Resistance: less accidental damage
  • High strength helps avoid damage during installation
  • Cold temperature resistant down to -70°F /-57°C
  • UV Stability for typical job site exposure

Interior Waterproofing

Interior Tile Waterproofing prevents moisture buildup in the wall cavity behind shower tile installations. Membrane made with Valéron can be used around drains, behind tile to provide protection against moisture migration.

Valéron is also used to provide strength to interior waterproofing and vapor retarder membranes. In addition to extreme toughness, Valéron film is a very good barrier to liquid water and water vapor.  In interior applications, it provides strength and ease of installation.  Interior applications include tile and shower waterproofing membranes and vapor retarders under flooring.
Properties

Valeron Film

  • Cross Laminated process
  • Puncture Resistance: less accidental damage
  • High strength helps avoid damage during installation
  • Preventing water from seeping in
  • Corners are lighter weight which helps for detailed installation
  • Lower moisture permeability to be used in mostly tile applications (ex. Steam showers)

Sewage Pipe Liners (SPL)

Sewage Pipe Liners help municipals repair and refurbish pipes without the need to completely dig up the pipe.

In many situations the best solution is not to excavate and replace aging sewage lines, but to refurbish the line without expensive and disruptive digging.  Valéron film provides the strength to sewage pipe pre-liners and liners.  Valéron film prevents tearing and ripping of the liner as it is pulled through the existing sewer piping.  Valéron film’s dimensional stability also prevents damage during the installation and curing stages,  Valéron Strength Films also offers custom laminations that add function and value to pipe relining systems.
Properties

Valeron Film

  • Cross Laminated process
  • Puncture Resistance: less accidental damage
  • Thermal Dimensional Stability: No stretching and protects interior resin
  • Different configurations
  • Minimize environmental impact by retaining monomers within sewer system
