SikaShield® bitumen membranes are widely used in roof renovation projects. They are easy to refurbish and compatible with most other technologies.
Roof Renovation with SikaShield® VMS
The SikaShield® membranes were re-designed to produce an effective, easy and simple product for all seasons, without the need for demolition.
SikaShield® VMS is a bituminous membrane with strips on the underside to diffuse any water vapor and prevent blistering. The strips, which cover around 40% of the membrane surface, guarantee better adhesion and consequently higher wind resistance. The remaining 60% is not glued, which creates free space for improved diffusion of water vapor and prevention of bubble formation from residual moisture. It is available in both torch and self-adhesive versions.

SikaShield® - An Adaptable Solution
SikaShield® bitumen membranes can be used for areas with high moisture levels or for the renovation of terraces and balconies which could still have water trapped.
SikaShield® VMS can also be included in other systems beyond bitumen, such as Sika liquid-applied membranes (Sikalastic®) and single-ply membranes (Sarnafil®), guaranteeing a safer roof refurbishment.
Here are a few typical build-ups.
SikaShield® BS type is a vapor control layer with strips on both sides to bond thermal insulation boards without special adhesives.
SikaShield® with a smooth surface ensures a full bond with the overlapping layer. It can be used as a vapor control layer or as a waterproofing membrane.
SikaShield® MG type with mineral granules acts as a base for laying ceramic tiles or cement mortar. It is especially suitable for balconies and terraces in either renovation projects or new buildings.
