IKO has brought its Metatech fast-drying, two-component liquid waterproofing system for roofing from Europe to Canada.

Based on polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), the system is suitable for commercial and residential low-slope roof installations and repairs across Canada. It offers a seamless membrane, ultraviolet (UV) resistance and catalyst activation to ensure durability.

Installers can apply Metatch PMMA with a brush or roller, with full curing within a couple of hours. It requires no open flames.

“With its inherent flexibility and fast cure times, Metatech PMMA will have a use on nearly all low-slope roofing projects when used alongside existing IKO systems,” says Adam Gotfraind, Canadian commercial product manager.
