Excel® FM Flame Free is a robust fast track single layer mechanically fixed warm roof bitumen waterproofing system, engineered for completely flame free installation for constructions where naked flame is prohibited.
Excel® FM Flame Free establishes an advancement in single layer mechanically fixed ALPA® polymer modified bitumen technology, combining the durability performance benefits of polymer modified bitumen with the speed and cost efficiency of single-ply synthetic membranes.
Excel® FM is a high-performance single layer mechanically fixed ALPA® polymer modified bitumen waterproofing system. The Excel® FM capsheet provides exceptional age resistance characteristics, mechanical strength, point load resistance and dimensional stability due to its composite reinforced core and unique ALPA® binder. Technological development and advanced polymer modification create a highly flexible robust material, with a safe and secure response to hot air welding methods at laps and joints.
Engineered for fast track mechanically fixed installation without the need for torch-on installation, the Excel® FM Flame Free polymer modified bitumen capsheet provides an enhanced performance alternative to single ply synthetic membranes. All laps and joints are sealed by hot air welding method to ensure a visible 2mm bead of bitumen is achieved in accordance with BS 8217 Reinforced bitumen membranes for roofing – Code of practice. Detailing is also completed using Neo-Bitumen™ flame free underlayer technology using hot-air welding techniques.
The system must be installed by accredited Axtershield (Ai) or Axter Alliance (AAi) Roofing Contractors that have successfully completed Axter's Flame Free system upskilling course.
