TECNOFOAM G-2060 Foam designed for insulation of transitable inverted roofs.

Excellent properties We have extended our range of polyurethane foams with the inclusion of the new TECNOFOAM G-2060, a foam specifically formulated for the application and formation of high density polyurethane foam (±52~62 kg/m³).  This new foam replaces the previous TECNOFOAM G-2050 which has now been withdrawn from our catalogue. All the tests conducted with the new TECNOFOAM G-2060 have produced even better results than its predecessor, making it ideal for inverted roof systems in combination with TECNOCOAT P-2049 polyurea.  TECNOFOAM G-2060 is a completely closed cell foam, a composition which directly influences its fundamental properties, such as thermal conductivity, absorption and waterproofing, permeability to water vapour, dimensional stability and resistance to compression.      A system suitable for all roof surfaces  Roofs which use a system with a high density and resistance to compression are normally considered transitable. In the TECNOFOAM G-2060 + TECNOCOAT P-2049 system, the high compression resistance of the polyurethane foam, the formation of a regular surface thanks to “closed cell” nature, together with the high resistance of the polyurea, allow the creation of a system which is ideal even for vehicle traffic purposes.   It is also a system widely used in all types of roofs (inclined or otherwise) with insulation and waterproofing requirements: roofs for farms, industrial warehouses, shopping centers, etc.  TECNOFOAM G-2060 allows the application of a polyurea membrane over its exterior coat in a continuous form without the risk of “pinholes” or bubbles forming.   GENERAL FEATURES TECNOFOAM G-2060 is a product with high insulating capacity, easy to apply covering all surfaces. The application and formation of the foam are carried out means a spray equipment. It is specially designed to be coated with TECNOCOAT P-2049, without the appearance of bubbles, “pinholes” or other pathologies. It does not emit any substance to the environment once installed. The properties of this polyurethane foam system allow it to adhere to any surface such as concrete, ceramic, metal, polyurethane foam, wood, acrylic paints (checking the situation of areas recommended). The application of TECNOFOAM G-2060 is completely continuous, instead of the classic non-continuous thermal insulation material , saving any kind of union between applications, and providing a optimum thermal insulation  surface with high thermal insulation parameters TECNOFOAM G-2060, is under european norme EN 14315-1:2013, thermal insulation products for buildings, in situ formed sprayed rigid polyurethane (PUR) It has CE mark on the basis of a declaration of performance DoP prepared in accordance with EU regulation 305/2011. or statement available on demand.   MORE INFORMATION ABOUT TECNOFOAM G-2060      


Moisture in concrete and coatings sensitive to damp.

Slabs of concrete are the system most used in the construction of all types of buildings and the use of concrete walls is ever more common. Sometimes the concrete surface may be left as a decorative feature in itself, while on other occasions it may be decided to cover it with coatings and finishes.   For the correct application of coatings sensitive to damp (including adhesives) an understanding is required of the source of the moisture within the concrete, the variations in damp during drying time, the factors which affect drying and the drying point after which coatings sensitive to damp may be applied.   We will go on to present a brief summary of how to determine the moisture content in concrete and how to interpret the information in order to obtain a realistic indication of whether the concrete drying point is suitable for applying the finishes.  The total degree of moisture within the concrete, whether water or water vapour, is known as the “moisture content” and is generally expressed as a percentage of the mass of the concrete.     Moisture may exist in the form of water (when the concrete is damp and the pores are saturated) or as water vapour. The amount of water vapour, and thereby the relative moisture within the concrete, varies significantly with time, depending on the degree of water vapour which entering or escaping from the concrete.  It is important to bear in mind that due to the minuscule capillaries of concrete, it may be almost saturated with water and yet have a moisture content of just 5%.  This has implications for what is considered a “sufficiently dry” concrete surface.   READ HERE THE ENTIRE ARTICLE 



PRIMER WET obtains the UNE-EN 1504-2:2005 certification (principle 1.2 protection against penetration) as a product suitable for use on concrete structures The UNE-EN 1504.2 standard entitled “Products and systems for the protection and repair of concrete structure” is the European approval certificate which defines the identification, performance (including durability aspects), safety and assessment of conformity for products and systems designed for concrete surface protection, with the purpose of increasing the durability of concrete and reinforced concrete structures, in both new concrete constructions and maintenance and repair work.    Recently our 100% solid resin for very damp surfaces PRIMER WET has successfully passed all the tests conducted by the  TECNALIA laboratories,  obtaining the  EN 1504-2:2005 (principle 1.2 protection against penetration). The results of these tests and a copy of the certification are available on request from our technical department.   PRIMER WET is an epoxy resin without solvents, of low viscosity, applicable in one coat. It is especially designed to increase the adherence of our waterproofing systems based on continuous membranes, TECNOCOAT P-2049, pure polyurea membrane, and DESMOPOL, polyurethane membrane, on concrete or mortar surfaces with high residual moisture of up to 98%. PRIMER WET obtains the UNE-EN ISO 7783-1:2000 standard In conjunction with the above certification, the tests and trials required under the UNE-EN ISO 7783-1:2000 standard were performed by the TECNALIA laboratories, under the title “Determination of the water vapour transmission rate according to the dish method for small films.”, obtaining the highest results (45.57 SD(m) ± 2,74) for a  Class II certification, very close to Class III, impermeable to water vapour.

TECNOCOAT P-2049 obtains the suitability certificate for use in CONTACT WITH DRINKING WATER

In accordance with BS6920 issued by the NSF laboratories The UK standard WRAS BS 6920 is defined as the "Suitability of non-metallic materials and products for use in contact with water intended for human consumption with regard to their effect on the quality of the water”. It is a requirement that all the non-metallic materials which come into contact with water destined for domestic use or the production of food products must comply with the specifications of BS 6920. The BS 6920 standard establishes a series of testing methods which assess the suitability of the materials in terms of the following:  Transmission of odours and tastes Provoking changes in appearance (colour or turbidity) Promoting the growth of microbes Releasing substances toxic to human health Releasing toxic metals   TECNOCOAT P-2049 polyurea has recently passed all the tests required for the WRAS BS 6920 standard conducted by the NSF laboratories. The NSF laboratories are internationally renowned for their experience and understanding of USA, European and Asian requirements, and produces reports in compliance with ISO/IEC 17025 signed by certified professional engineers. As a result TECNOCOAT P-2049 has been fully certified as a finish suitable for contact with water destined for human consumption. All the certificates and test results are available for our clients, in various languages, on our website or from our technical department.


What is a VOC?

We produce environmentally responsible products with VOC levels well below permitted limits.  The initials VOC stand for volatile organic compounds, and refer to substances which contain chemical products easily converted into vapours or gases.    Volatile compounds can be natural (methane, isoprenoids emitted by vegetation etc.) or artificial (solvents). There are more than a thousand different compounds which may be considered VOCs, but the most common are the following: methane, ethane, propane, n-butane, n-pentane, benzene, toluene, xylene and ethylene.   In the formulation of paints and coverings it may be necessary to include solvents containing volatile elements. The percentage of these solvents in relation to the solids contained in the formula will determine the product’s VOC. As a result a 100% solid product will have a 0 VOC, without volatile elements, and as a result will be more respectful of the environment and the health of those who come into contact with it; both manufacturers and end users.    Water-based products have a zero or very low VOC.    All Tecnopol products must conform to directive 2004/42/CE of the European Parliament and the Council, dated 21st April 2004, which restricts VOC emissions resulting from the use of solvents in specific paints and varnishes.   In the labeling of all TECNOPOL coatings, primers and varnishes the VOC index of the product is listed together with the corresponding category and the permitted limit. Our company is firmly committed to environmental issues, and as such more than 60% of our coatings and primers contain no solvents (VOC 0) while the remainder have a VOC clearly below the permitted limit (in almost all cases below half).   We will continue to work in this manner – the only way we know how. All products still being developed will have a VOC as low as possible.

DESMOPOL DW. Polyurethane membrane designed and approved for contact with water destined for human consumption

Desmopol DW. The polyurethane approved for contact with water destined for human consumption  The DESMOPOL range of polyurethane membranes continues to grow; just recently we introduced the new DESMOPOL CB, a modified polyurethane elastomer with one component bitumen, now it’s the turn of the new DESMOPOL DW (named after the initials of “drinking water”), specifically designed for use in situations where the membrane will inevitably come into contact with water designed for human consumption. The Tecnopol R+D team has been working hard on the development of this membrane for more than a year, and after numerous tests, they have successfully perfected the formula which now meets all our exacting internal quality standards and with which we are fully satisfied.     The quality tests are designed to determine the suitability of the product in terms of the following mechanical properties: elongation, adherence, viscosity, tensile strength, etc.  After completion of the first phase of testing, we then proceeded to the second stage to determine whether the product complies with the requirements of the purpose for which it is ultimately intended, namely, in this case, contact with drinking water.  After several months of rigorous testing it was confirmed that there was no transfer of membrane particles to the water, after which the product was sent to the NSF laboratories in the UK to undergo the official test procedures for formal approval and certification of use.   DESMOPOL DW has now successfully passed all the tests conducted at the UK based NSF laboratories, and has been duly granted the certificate for use on surfaces designed for contact with water destined for human consumption.   Results were excellent on all the test certificate procedures, which included the following:    Smell and taste of the water (unchanged) Appearance of the water (unchanged) Growth of aquatic microorganisms (no signs detected) Release of potentially harmful or toxic substances (no signs detected) Release of metal traces (no signs detected) DESMOPOL DW passed all the tests conducted by the NSF laboratories and is now officially classified as safe and suitable for use in contact with water destined for human consumption. 


We have expanded our PRIMER range with a variety of new resins.

We will go on to explain their properties and how to select the one best suited for each type of use.   Buying a suit off the peg in a large store is not the same as one made to measure  from a tailor. We could go out dressed in either, but if we expect it to fit perfectly, just like a glove, we would have to opt for the second.   The same is largely true with primers; if we want the job to be finished perfectly and avoid problems in the future we need to select the right product, designed for the type of surface, the prevailing climatic conditions and the system employed. In other words we need to select a primer that has been “tailor made” for our specific needs.  We have developed a range of resins with different properties to maximize adherence to all types of surface, porous or non-porous, and in different temperature and humidity conditions, designed to facilitate the application of all our membranes and flooring systems.     Which primer do I need? PRIMER PU-1000 Resin suitable for repairs and overlaps   PRIMER EP-1040 Maximum adherence on systems used on metal   PRIMER PU-1050 The best option for concrete  PRIMER EPw-1070 All types of surfaces in medium-damp conditions   PRIMER PUc-1050 For concrete in cold environments  PRIMER WET Porous surfaces subject to maximum damp PRIMER EP-1020 Resin ideal for epoxy systems on concrete PRIMER T For use in totally transparent systems   Chief properties of the primer range

Pin-holes, what they are and how to prevent them.

PINHOLES are small craters which form in the applied product during the drying process and which, apart from an aesthetic problem, can also cause functional difficulties, especially in waterproof membranes as they can adversely affect the resistance and efficiency of the coating.       Pin-holes through air or solvent trapped inside the membrane  When membranes are applied which contain solvents it is important to apply thin coats to prevent the appearance of pin-holes. The reason for this is that solvents are very volatile and tend to rise once the membrane has been applied. With a thin coat this is not a problem; the solvents will evaporate more, but if the coat is very thick, apart from a greater concentration of solvents, they will not have time to escape and will remain trapped inside the membrane forming bubbles in the surface. In some cases these bubbles may actually break through the surface, causing the appearance of pin-holes.   In the case of DESMOPOL polyurethane membrane, we can completely eliminate the risk of the appearance of pin-holes or bubbling with the addition of DESMOPLUS. This additive allows the application of DESMOPOL in a single coat with the desired thickness, producing a completely smooth finish with no bubbling or pin-holes. This same problem can occur if the product is foam based or contains air. This is usually due to over energetic stirring of the product. To prevent this we simply need to take the precaution of stirring the product on a slow speed and, if possible, with a basket shaped head.        Pin-holes through trapped air below the membrane  If one applies a polyurea or polyurethane membrane, using spraying equipment, directly onto an untreated or inadequately prepared surface, one is bound to end up with air trapped under the membrane.  This air is less dense than the product which contains it, and while the latter is drying, the trapped air rises to the surface and may cause the feared pin-hole effect.  This same phenomenon occurs when a primer is not applied or the coat is too thin or insufficient.  With the application of hot membranes the drying process is much shorter, which might lead us to believe that the air would not have time to escape, however the membrane temperature in fact also warms the air, making it rise faster, also causing the pin-hole effect.     THE 4 BASIC TIPS FOR PREVENTING PIN-HOLES Always stir the product at low speed and with a “basket” type head  Always correctly prepare the surface to leave it as smooth as possible. Ensure there are no cracks, cavities and other irregularities.  Correctly prime the entire surface, using one or more coats, to ensure that it is as flat and smooth as possible.  When not using the DESMOPLUS additive, which allows application in a single coat, always apply several thin coats.     


TECNOFOAM wears green

New green initiatives are discovered in our industry every day. There is an increasing demand for ecological building techniques and the field of construction is constantly searching for new green solutions in order to develop a more sustainable way of building. TECNOFOAM’s line of foams provides one of these "ECO" solutions, which we will explain in this article. In order to reinforce its added value, starting in January 2017, water-based TECNOFOAM foams will be produced in the color green. There are various ECO advantages of our water-based foams for thermal insulation: The blowing agent is water; the foam’s composition does not contain any gases that act as a blowing agent. In accordance with European regulations for gas emissions, TECNOFOAM water-based foams do not emit any toxic gases during application or over the course of their useful life (once they have been applied). Gases are not required to be captured for recycling and/or destruction, meaning that their removal does not require any sort of permit or special procedure.   These systems are 100% recyclable, using mechanical means that are environmentally friendly. They do not contain any substances that could damage the ozone layer and therefore do no contribute to the greenhouse effect (NO HFCs, HCFCs, VOCs, etc.). This system has a continuous positive impact on the environment, since its "ECO" action is backed by the great energy savings it provides for construction that uses TECNOFOAM for thermal insulation. Furthermore, these foams have invariable thermal conductivity, remaining constant throughout the product’s useful life, and thereby optimizing the system’s thermal insulation capacity.
