Icopal introduces Universal

Icopal has launched the Universal range, a new collection that is reportedly ideal for flat or pitched roofs. Available in three different variations, the product is said to be durable and environmentally-friendly.

With its high puncture-resistance, the company’s new addition is said to be long-lasting with a lifespan of up to 30 years. The single layer roofing system contains POCB (polyolefine copolymerisate binder) and is reportedly further enhanced with glass fibre and polyester. Combined with UV-protection, Icopal says the Universal range is the ‘most durable’ and ‘versatile’ roofing material available.

This range is also said to be completely ecologically-friendly. Icopal Universal reportedly consists of clean raw materials, and is free from plasticizers, chlorine and other halogens. As a result, this product reportedly reduces the overall environmental impact of a building. As well as this, Universal is also said to be fully recyclable, adding further value to its environmental credentials.
Neil Harrison, technical director at Icopal, said: “Icopal have always produced the most innovative means of building protection. Icopal Universal combines versatility and sustainability very well, and it is very rewarding to see how popular it is amongst our customers.”

The most popular version of Icopal Universal is POCB, which can be mechanically fixed, ballasted and loose laid. Secondly, Icopal Universal SA is self-adhesive, making detailing easy and safe. Lastly, Icopal Universal WS is said to be resistant to root penetration, making it ideal for green roof applications.
