IKO Easyseal Self Adhesive Felt is a high performance quick to apply roofing felt ideal for use on flat roofed domestic buildings where a robust, long lasting built up felt roofing system is required.
IKO Easyseal Self Adhesive Felt is a two-layer high performance system, which was originally developed for small roofs, such as those over garages, porches, extensions and dormer windows etc. However, the fire-safe benefits of Easyseal are equally applicable for
IKO Easyseal Self Adhesive Felt has been accreditation from the British Board of Agrement, no. 02/3916.
The self-adhesive application process, using no hot bitumen, gas torches or large amounts of messy liquids, makes it an ideal option for experienced contractors or competent DIY installers alike.
IKO Easyseal felts consist of two products to create a system:
IKO 8m Easyseal Underlay is manufactured with an inert glass fibre base, coated with SBS modified bitumen. The upper surface has a non-removable polyethylene film, with a removable release film to the underside.
IKO 6m Easyseal Cap Sheet is manufactured with a high performance polyester base, coated with SBS modified bitumen. The upper surface is finished with a slate mineral. The underside is protected by a release film, which is removed during installation. The IKO Easyseal slate mineral has a 75mm selvedge for ease of lap jointing.
Both the capsheet and underlay have specially formulated self-adhesive additives in the coating.
The IKO Easyseal felts are expected to last over 20 years when installed together as a 2 layer roof waterproofing system.
