Pacoflex is a durable external waterproof membrane. When complete allows for
the selection of various finishes to be achieved to create an aesthetic outdoor area.
Pacoflex is a polymer modified mastic asphalt. It comprises of
limestone aggregates bound together by asphalt cement and advanced polymers
system must be laid on a concrete or plywood . A separation layer is
required between the substrate and mastic asphalt topping, which is formed in
two 10 mm layers. For an inverted roof system , Geo-textiles , drainage cells , XPS insulation, paving slabs and pebbles can be applied over the mastic asphalt as part of a system.
Scope of use
The podium system is applied on flat to moderately sloped roofs.
It is suitable in new
or existing commercial buildings. It can be laid on a range of substrates but mainly concrete due to the weight loading of the system.
Due to its durability and seamless nature mastic asphalt can be laid to minimal falls including Zero and has been applied on many New Zealand buildings,. Mastic asphalt is laid 20 mm thick and is monolithic therefore it cannot be penetrated by roots and is suitable for potable water.

Use in Service History
Mastic asphalt is the oldest waterproofing in the world. It has been used successfully in New Zealand for over 100 years or latest polymer systems have more durability, flexability and ease of application than old variety's of mastic asphalt.
Asphaltech product has been used in New Zealand now for 10 years featuring on a range of large apartment buildings, Car parks , old heritage buildings and modern shopping centers.
TVNZ re-roof 2600m2 , The ANZ towe , Bellus Apartments and Chambers in Station to name a few of our most recent projects.
This covers the use of the Asphaltech Mastic Asphalt Roof Waterproofing and Paving System as a
waterproof roofing membrane and as a waterproofing and paving system for
elevated decks and car parks for cars, light commercial and heavy goods
The Asphaltech Mastic Asphalt Roof
Waterproofing and Paving System may be used where the minimum gradient of the
substrate structure is completely flat (less than 1:80) including nominally
The system can be configured to be:
for direct foot traffic
- A suitable substrate external pavers, tiles or concrete for pedestrian traffic,
and for pavers or tiles on paver supports, for use on terraces, balconies or
- A car
park trafficable surface.
- Part of a
green roof system.
Part of a insulated roof system .
The Asphaltech Mastic Asphalt Roof Waterproofing and
Paving System must be installed using the traditional techniques for mastic
asphalt described in the relevant Clauses of BS 8218: 1998, and in accordance
with the Asphaltech Technical Manual and Details
Timber substrate structures may be designed in
accordance with NZS3604 as a heavy roof, provided the mastic asphalt membrane
does not exceed 22 mm. All plywood sheets must be CCA treated to H3.2. The
plywood must be a minimum of 17mm thickness complying with AS/NZS 2269.0
Concrete and other specifically designed substrates
must be designed in accordance with verification method B1/VM1 using the
structural design actions in AS/NZS1170
A separation layer is required between the substrate
and mastic asphalt topping
The substrate must be dry, with no sharp projections.
All work must be carried out by Asphaltech Waterproofing Suppliers Ltd approved
All maintenance surveys should be carried out yearly and in the Autumn.
• It is important to check that roof outlets are functioning and gratings are not blocked. Remove
debris from the roof but do not flush silt or dead leaves down outlets. In areas where taller
trees are adjacent to the roof, inspections may be required more frequently.
• Note the general condition of the waterproofing finishes and report any damaged areas
• Check waterproofing to roof light kerbs.
• Check roof light domes for signs of damage or deflection.
• Check perimeter details and up stands, ensuring that the metal capping, flashing's, edge trims
and mortar pointing to chase details are secure.
• Check flashing's to expansion joints and that the all components are secure.
• Check the up stand flashing's to plant support legs/up stands.
• Check the up stands and flashing's to pipe penetrations.
• Examine all mastic seals and repair/replace as necessary.
• Check walkways and around access
Mastic asphalt 100%
Mastic Asphalt industry was the first in gain carbon Neutral
As mastic asphalt has a longer life cycle than most products it is therefore more sustainable.
