The Uni-Flexx Waterproofing System
Uni-Flexx is a unique product manufactured in-house by Universal Roofing. During our search for the perfect waterproofing solutions, we found a lack of quality cold-applied products on the market. Universal Roofing therefore formulated Uni-Flexx to provide the ultimate solution.
Above all, the goal of our waterproofing is to seal potential problem areas where leaks have or may occur. Uni-flexx is100% water-tight and it puts an end to any unseen and unnoticed leaks.
Uni-flexx underwent the stringent of tests before being released to the market. Uni-flexx has proven to be an extremely hard wearing UV stable waterproofing barrier with an outstanding track record of 18 years plus.
In addition, Uni-flexx acts as a heat resistant coating for your roof. In other words, it keeps the underlying rooms cooler in summer and in winter it does th reverse by insulating the warmth inside.
But how? You many ask.
Built in UV barriers prolong the life span of the product by many years.
The Uni-Flexx waterproofing system is formulated and manufactured containing a a built-in Antimicrobial agent. This prevents the growth and development, of fungicide and algae.
Certainly one of Uni-flexx’s least talked about but most important features is that it is “Eco-friendly”. Because Uni-Flexx neutralizes the toxins in rainwater resulting in the water to be more user friendly. Storm water drained from your roof can be harvested in water strorage tanks, and utilised to feed veggie gardens or directed into your home. (We recommend that it still be filtered to removed bacteria like bird droppings and the like.) That is to say, by using the Uni-flexx waterproofing system, you make sure you have a dry home, office, and factory.
In conclusion, some of the advantages of using our Uni-Flexx waterproofing system are:
Firstly, Uni-flexx is not an acrylic based system. Extremely hard wearing. Which means that it is not water-based and therefore not water-soluble.
Secondly, Uni-Flexx has great U.V. resistance.
Thirdly, cold application means; no fumes are given off during installation, as no gas is used for the adhesion.
Fourth, there is no noise pollution during the application.
Fifth, Uni-Flexx cools steel corrugated, IBR and concrete roofs to the touch (summer mid-day test). (Reduces temperature by 20-30%)
Sixth, Can be applied to almost any substrate. (Concrete, steel, wood, fibre cement, asbestos, glass, polycarbonate, etc.)
Lastly with the formula’s expansion allowance, (can handle extreme temperature variations) using Uni-flexx reduces the risk cracking under extreme weather conditions.
Why Waterproof Before Painting
At Universal Roofing, we strongly suggest that waterproofing is done professionally before painting your home, office, or factory. The reason for this suggestion is should there be a need for waterproofing at a later stage. As a result, the painting would have to be done a second time; this will cost you both time and money.
