ZIC Light Weight Insulating Concrete

For New Construction Applications

For many years, the Siplast ZIC System has been successfully installed over galvanized slotted corrugated metal deck where insulation and slope are required in a fully fire rated construction. By design, Siplast Lightweight Insulating Concrete Systems encapsulate Insulperm Insulation Board in insulating concrete. Specific insulation values, from low to very high, can be achieved to meet design requirements simply through the adjustment of Insulperm thicknesses. Because Insulperm can be installed in stair-step fashion, slope-to-drain is much easier to achieve than creating slope with complicated tapered rigid board insulation systems. Given its inherent fire resistant quality, ZIC remains an economical alternative to the expensive process of fireproofing necessary for other insulation systems to meet the same fire ratings achieved by the Siplast ZIC System.

The standard Siplast ZIC System is a 1:6 ratio of Portland cement volume to ZIC aggregate volume. ZIC is used in new construction applications over slotted galvanized metal decking. The standard 1:6 (cement to aggregate ratio) system requires a minimum 2-inch thickness of ZIC over the top of the Insulperm Insulation Board.

NVS Light Weight Insulating Concrete

Practical, Efficient Solution for Reroofing Applications

The Siplast NVS (Non-Vented Substrate) System has been engineered for use over concrete substrates, reroofing and, where appropriate, re-cover applications. In these applications, NVS Insulating Concrete, combined with Insulperm Insulation Board (encapsulated in the insulating concrete), provides positive slope-to-drain over flat or irregular substrates.

Typically, there are inherent difficulties in achieving slope with concrete substrates, and in reroofing and re-cover applications. Cast-in-place concrete is usually poured dead-level. On the other hand, precast concrete has camber in the slabs and variations in joint heights. In reroofing, proper slope is difficult to achieve because of roof deck deflection or an initial flat design. In re-cover applications, surface irregularities are common. The use of NVS Insulating Concrete and stair-stepped Insulperm eliminates substrate irregularities and achieves a positive slope-to-drain design.

The Siplast NVS System is more economical than installing tapered, rigid board systems or sloping the structural concrete. Depending on the condition of the existing roof system, the NVS System can also eliminate the need for costly tear-off and simplify surface preparation.

The Siplast NVS System is a 1:3.5 ratio of Portland cement volume to patented NVS Concrete Aggregate volume. It is used over non-venting substrates such as structural concrete. Because of its higher compressive and tensile strengths, NVS requires only a 1-inch minimum thickness over the top of the Insulperm Insulation Board.

Insulcel Light Weight Insulating Concrete

For use Over Impervious Substrates

Siplast Insulcel is designed for application over impervious substrates. Insulcel Insulating Concrete combines Insulcel-PB pregenerated cellular foam with a Portland cement/water slurry to produce an economical cellular concrete. Insulcel can be installed over non-slotted or slotted galvanized corrugated metal decks, structural concrete substrates and, where appropriate, over existing roofs in recover applications. Insulcel is not intended for use in extremely hot, dry climates.
Insulcel's excellent fire resistance properties make it cost effective versus the more expensive alternative of adding a fireproof coating to the deck's underside, as required by most systems incorporating conventional rigid insulation board.
The Insulcel System is appropriate for jobs located in climates that are conducive to proper curing of cellular concrete. Insulcel Insulating Concrete is placed at a minimum 2-inch thickness over the top of the Insulperm Insulation Board.

Zonocel Light Weight Insulating Concrete

Concrete with Low Moisture Content

Siplast Zonocel Insulating Concrete combines the best attributes of Insulcel Insulating Concrete with ZIC Aggregate. This design creates a lightweight insulating concrete that has a low moisture content from the time of placement, yet can be applied over slotted metal.
As with all Siplast Lightweight Insulating Concrete Systems, Insulperm Insulation board is encapsulated in the insulating concrete. Specific insulation values, from low to very high, can be achieved to meet design requirements simply through the adjustment of Insulperm thicknesses. Because Insulperm can be installed in stair-step fashion, slope-to-drain is much easier to achieve than creating slope with complicated tapered rigid board insulation systems. Given its inherent fire resistant quality, Zonocel is an economical alternative to the expensive process of fireproofing the deck's underside necessary for other insulation systems to meet the same fire ratings Zonocel achieves.
The Siplast Zonocel System is a combination of Insulcel-PB pregenerated foam and ZIC Aggregate. Zonocel is used in new construction applications over slotted galvanized metal decking. Zonocel is placed at a minimum 2-inch thickness over the top of the Insulperm Insulation Board.

Insulcel RT – Surface treatment

Bond Enhancing System

Siplast RT is a specially designed bond enhancing system for use with Siplast Insulcel Lightweight Insulating Concrete Systems. It provides enhanced attachment characteristics when semi-adhered Paradiene TS is applied directly to the surface of an Insulcel Lightweight Insulating Concrete deck. The unique design of Paradiene 20 TS provides a mechanism for membrane venting while allowing direct adhesive attachment to the Insulcel surface.
RT Surface Treatment is a heat-activated, asphalt-based pellet that is broadcast into the surface of newly poured Insulcel Lightweight Insulating Concrete. The pellets create a mechanical lock into the surface of the concrete. When Paradiene 20 TS is torch-applied directly to the surface of the deck, the membrane and pellets are heat welded, resulting in a unique, highly engineered system with a first ply that is not only adhered to the deck surface, but also mechanically fastened to the concrete without penetrating the membrane.
