General

SEMPATAP is thermal insulation on a roll as simple and easy as wallpaper to apply and is the economical solution for resolving condensation problems. It has been specified and successfully used by Local Authorities and Housing Associations throughout the UK and Europe for over 20 years.

Condensation and mould

Condensation and black mould complaints are problems faced by maintenance and housing managers throughout the UK. SEMPATAP is a quick and easy to apply remedy which alleviates condensation problems and makes cold, damp rooms immediately warmer. When applied to wall or ceiling surfaces SEMPATAP dramatically reduces the ‘u’ value – which, in turn, reciprocally raises the room temperature. It provides a surface on which condensation will not form and is excellent for use on cold solid walls, concrete ceilings, cantilever beams, cold bridges, ring beams, etc. Mould in houses, even in a small contamination, is a serious health risk which can result in asthma, upper respiratory diseases and food poisoning. Furthermore, several independent reports confirm that mould spores are detrimental to the well being of adults and children and, as such, are classified as a statutory nuisance.

Sound properties:

SEMPATAP has very good sound absorption properties and is particularly effective in the range of unpleasant high frequencies. SEMPATAP is particularly useful in helping to overcome problems of reverberation and sound transmittance between neighbouring flats or in high and low rise blocks of flats.

Sempatap insulation:

SEMPATAP is made from a natural material – latex – with a durable woven fibre-glass face. It is in an open and closed cellular construction, which allows the substrate to breathe. It is very easy to apply and operatives do not need any special skills or tools – SEMPATAP rolls are 1 metre wide and 12.5 metres long, therefore it is just like wallpaper – you can get 5 drops out of a roll. The adhesive is water-based, therefore there are no nasty smells and work can be undertaken with tenants in situ – it is not necessary to vacate the property. It can be decorated with virtually anything – emulsion, wallpaper, even tiled and redecoration presents no problems – the fibre-glass finish allows the removal of old wallpaper via any method without damage to the SEMPATAP. Using SEMPATAP in conjunction with MGC’s proven mould eradication treatments eliminates black mould problems, dramatically reduces condensation and provides warmer healthier living conditions

Specification:

Thermal Resistance 0.074 m²K/W

Roll Size:   1m wide x 12.5m long

Thickness: 5mm

Roll weight: 18.75 kg      Weight m²: 1.5 kg

Addition of SEMPATAP to the wall modifies its U-value as follows:

Resistance of untreated wall (9″solid brick)  = U-value 2.1W/m²K = 1/2.1 = 0.476

Resistance with SEMPATAP = 0.476 + 0.074 = 0.550 m²K/W

U-value with SEMPATAP = 1/0.55 = 1.82 W/m²K

APPLICATION 1Cut

SEMPATAP to length, allowing 25mm overlap at each end. Roll-up cut length of SEMPATAP with foam facing out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

APPLICATION 2Apply

SEMPATAP ADHESIVE with serrated MGC ADHESIVE SPREADER, suitable notched trowel or medium pile roller.  Only apply adhesive to one drop length area at a time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

APPLICATION 3Hold

the rolled-up piece of SEMPATAP in one hand and unroll the first half metre, (keep remainder rolled-up), and apply foam side to the wet adhesive.  Keep the roll on the wet adhesive. Unroll another half metre.  Using light hand pressure, smooth out the unrolled piece that is in contact with the adhesive.  If light pressure is used, SEMPATAP can at this point be repositioned by sliding into place.

 

APPLICATION 6

Decorative Finish

Sempatap can be decorated with virtually any finish – wallpaper, emulsion, even tiles.  For a perfect finish when using emulsion, cross line with lining paper to totally hide the joints.
