Deck Membrane - Timber Finish

Polibit Plain / Novaflex is a BRANZ appraised torch on membrane system for waterproofing decked or paved areas. It can be applied to a wide range of substrates, such as concrete, masonry, wood, insulation panels, and under heavy protection.

Its double-sheet membrane system is made up of two polyester reinforced layers, with a combined thickness of 6mm.

Timber Overlays for Polibit Plain / Novaflex:

For timber decked areas, Polibit Plain / Novaflex should be used with the Jaydex floating timber batten/slatted deck system. The fixing points for this system are around the deck periphery, not through the deck floor.

The timber batten supports for the timber slats have Jaydex proprietary packers in 15mm, 13mm, 3mm height modules or rubber isolation pads. The battens should be orientated down the line of fall.

Over-coating for exposed areas:

Polibit Plan / Novaflex may be left permanently exposed if it is treated with a Jaydex barrier coat and two coats of Jaydex Aquaseal, or with two coats of Jaydex Alumicote.
