3mm torch on, which is a flexible waterproofing membrane consisting of a mixture of penetration bitumen, modified with Atactic Polypropylene (APP), and reinforced with a layer of non-woven polyester is what we use for waterproofing leaking balconies in Melbourne. The underside finishing of the sheet consists of an ultra-thin Polyethylene foil for fast burn and greater adhesion to most sub-straights. The upper surface is finished with a mixture of talcum and sand, this gives a fantastic mechanical finish making it easy to get adhesion for direct sticking tiles or applying a sand and cement screed for creating fall.
