Developed by Magnetti Building in collaboration with the Department of Structural Engineering and Geotechnics of the University of Genoa, Acqua-stop© consists of a continuous waterproof TPO coating that is bonded to the roofing covering by electromagnetic induction, without the need to drill any holes.
On the outside it is clean and smooth: it is more pleasing to the eye than traditional coatings, it is highly weather-resistant, and it limits heat absorption during summer enabling added comfort inside the building.
It is stable and non-toxic, it adapts to structural movements, it is completely waterproof and can be integrated with photovoltaic systems.
The durability of the material, British Standard-certified, guarantees a coating life expectancy of approximately 25 years.
It is guaranteed by the continuity of the coating membrane over the entire roof covering and by the mechanical bonding of the TPO coating to the plate and to the underlying insulating-structure system, by means of pre-coupled metal plates, the positioning of which is calculated according to plan.
The water conveyed outside, protects the inside from flooding and breakages, for example on floorings.
It also safeguards the assets stored inside the building, such as goods or machinery, avoiding any downtime necessary to carry out repairs or maintenance.
The waterproofing power has been tested by performing surface flooding tests.
Highly weather and UV ray-resistant.
Lower heat absorption in summer and good average temperatures both on the roof covering and inside the building itself.
An SRI (Solar Reflectance Index) value exceeding 100. The solar reflectance index of a roofing material measures its capacity to reject solar heat.
Materials with a high SRI value lower the surface temperatures of roofing coverings obtaining immediate and measurable benefits:
The clean, smooth, white membrane coating is pleasant to look at when compared to traditional roofing materials:
It is non-toxic and anti-reflective, without any open flames throughout all production and application stages and it guarantees a high level of safety thanks to its dimensional stability, adaptability to structural movements and its weather and UV ray resistance.
The application of insulating and waterproofing layers, bonded to the concrete substrate, simplifies adjustments and maintenance operations. Furthermore, Acqua-stop© guarantees:
The membrane coating makes it possible also to connect rainwater collection channels.
The system does not require any maintenance, except for periodic cleaning, one of the activities made available by Magnetti Building following the completion of the building construction.
The certification, issued by an independent, third-party body, ensures that all products are suitable for their intended uses and applications, and that they comply with the requirements specified in the relevant documentation.
By law, the waterproofing power of the roof coverings is guaranteed for 10 years. Magnetti Building guarantees the product performance and characteristics both for the 10 years specified by law and for the following 5 years, in the 10+5 year guarantee formula.
From roof coverings and underground works, up to hydraulic purposes, Acqua-stop© has been successfully used:
In case of particularly restrictive demands regarding environmental impact, Magnetti Building proposes a versatile product that fully meets the customer’s needs. From an aesthetic point of view, the TPO can be customised: available in white, red or green, the chosen colour can become an element of distinction and recognition.
The Life Cycle Assessment is useful to evaluate the environmental performance of a product compared to a similar one; It quantifies the environmental pressure of a product throughout its life cycle: raw material extraction, production, use, disposal of the waste product.
