Equus SOPREMA COLPHENE 3000 system is a self-adhesive tanking membrane manufactured by worldwide leader in waterproofing products, SOPREMA. The membrane is designed for foundation walls and other below grade vertical surfaces and can be used on concrete & masonry substrates which makes is a great, economical solution for underground waterproofing in areas of low risk of hydrostatic pressure up to 3m deep.
The membrane is composed of a SBS modified bitumen with a tri-laminated woven polyethylene facer. It is extremely flexible, easy to handle, and fits easily around the sharp contours and angles of concrete footings and foundations.
The complete system also includes a drainage and protection mat laid between the membrane and the earth which is secured in place by a specifically designed termination bar. This provides an extra layer of protection, extending the life of the membrane.
COLPHENE 3000 can be used in conjunction with the Equus SOPREMA DeboFlex 3.5 Special Tanking system for underground, below slab waterproofing.
The system has been assessed and complies with the New Zealand Building Code, and the Membrane holds a current BRANZ appraisal.
