The European Solution - ROOFCOLLECT®

ROOFCOLLECT® is the European solution for the collecting and recycling of end-of-life thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes under the umbrella of ESWA, the European Single ply Waterproofing Association. Thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes are perfectly suited for recycling after years of service.

Welding of Waterproofing Plastic Sheets - Reassuring Results

In day-to-day operations roofers come into contact with different hazardous materials, whether liquid, solid or gaseous. Here it is important to know, which materials are toxic and which can be classified as safe. Outdoor on-site measurements whilst welding plastic roofing sheets show only low exposure.

Exposure prescriptions based on investigations by BGBau (German Employers' liability insurance association) conclude: Threshold values are not reached. In most cases even the limit of determination is not reached. For outdoor work no further action is required. It is assumed that in future, too, the exposure will comply with aerial threshold values permanently. ESWA members confirm that they are not aware of any case of disease caused by the welding process.
