Kemper System will be amongst the first specialist companies to take advantage of the UK’s only dedicated roofing show when the company exhibits at stand 260, Hall 8 at this year’s inaugural Roofex exhibition at the NEC (1-2 May).
Featuring 5000m2 of exhibitors along with live demonstrations, CPD seminars and training workshops, Roofex is free to enter and will provide a major platform for the roofing sector which is a £1.035 billion per annum marketplace. Kemper System will use this forum to showcase its innovative roofing products, including its Kemperol 2K-PUR solvent-free liquid waterproofing system and its Stratex Warm Roof System.
Kemper System’s innovative Kemperol 2K-PUR solvent-free system was the first solvent-free wet-on-wet cold liquid waterproofing system available on the UK market and remains the only product of its kind. The fume-free system is not only ideal for sustainable new builds but is also perfect for upgrades to occupied buildings as the lack of any nuisance odours means that work can be carried out while the building remains in normal use.
Hard-wearing and durable, Kemperol 2K-PUR bonds to almost any substrate to create a totally seamless, monolithic, U/V stable, elastomeric membrane that cannot delaminate. Based on an 80% castor-oil formulation derived from sustainable sources, the liquid system also incorporates a flexible non-woven reinforcement fleece, which is manufactured using a 25% recycled plastic bottle content. Like Kemper System’s solvent-based Kemperol V210 system, Kemperol 2K-PUR is offered with a 20-year warranty and is suitable for application on top of most existing roofing materials.
Complementing the sustainability credentials of the Kemperol 2K-PUR system, Kemper System’s Stratex Warm Roof System offers a completely integrated warm roof system that incorporates primers, vapour barrier, insulation and waterproofing with a range of optional surfacing. Featuring a rigid PIR insulation board with a unique tongue and groove interlocking joint, the system significantly reduces cold bridging and gives a much smoother surface finish.
Kemper System will also be showcasing the company’s Kempergro Green Roof System at Roofex, a three-section system comprising a reservoir attenuation composite, growing medium and vegetation. The reservoir attenuation layer includes an upper filter fleece, central reservoir core and lower protection fleece, which are manufactured from 90% recycled materials and are factory bonded to maximise performance and simplify installation. Suitable for use with the Kemperol 2K-PUR or Kemperol V210 waterproofing membrane systems, Kempergro has a growing medium that is 100% composed of recycled brick, tiles and green compost, which is processed and graded to support an extensive range of sedum, meadow or lawn roof media.
Visitors to Kemper System’s stand will be able to see how each of the systems have been used in practice, including how the Kemperol 2K-PUR waterproofing membrane and Stratex Warm Roof System have been used together on various high profile projects. There will also be a number of display areas where visitors to the stand will be able to view samples of the cured product to experience first hand the flexibility and durability it offers.
Comments managing director of Kemper System, Harry Cowell: “We are delighted that there is now a specialist exhibition that focuses on the roofing sector and is supported and endorsed by all the major roofing associations. This is not only an opportunity for contractors and specifiers to find out about the latest products and technologies, its also a forum for sharing best practice and learning from CPD presentations and we’re excited to be part of the very first event.”
