What is Torch-On Waterproofing?

Torch-On Waterproofing is a popular method for waterproofing flat roofs, balconies, and other areas in construction. It involves applying a modified bitumen membrane to the surface using a torch to melt the bitumen and adhere it to the substrate. Torch-On membranes are made of a combination of modified bitumen and other materials such as polyester or fibreglass, making them highly durable and resistant to weathering, UV radiation, and foot traffic. One of the products we use is Viopol Torch-on.

Benefits of Torch-On Waterproofing:


Torch-On membranes have a long lifespan, typically lasting between 15 and 20 years.


Torch-On membranes can be applied to a variety of surfaces, including concrete, plywood, and metal.


Torch-On membranes are highly resistant to weathering, UV radiation, and foot traffic.

Easy installation

Torch-On membranes are relatively easy to install, saving time and money during construction.

Torch-On Waterproofing for the Environment

At Coastal Painting and Waterproofing, we believe in sustainable and eco-friendly solutions. Torch-On Waterproofing is a green roofing solution that is non-harmful to the environment. It is low-maintenance, non-water soluble, non-biodegradable, non-carcinogenic, and non-toxic. For this reason, it is also perfect for waterproofing roof gardens and planter boxes.

Additionally, it is important to remember that Torch-On membranes cannot withstand the UV rays of the sun. That's why we always overcoat our Torch-On Waterproofing with Bituminous Aluminium to ensure maximum protection and longevity.
