Atlastic 55 Sheet is the ultimate high-temperature, polymer modified asphaltic membrane for industrial applications.
The reinforced, polymer modified asphaltic formulation of Atlastic 55 Sheet provides a virtually unlimited range of design for high-temperature, masonry lined process and storage vessels.
Atlastic 55 Sheet is ideal for process vessels common in chlor-alkali, phosphoric, sulfuric, fertilizer, and pigment processing and other chemical process industries.
Atlastic 55 Sheet is used in conjunction with a chemical resistant brick or masonry to provide protection for process vessels. This easy-to-apply, pliable sheet conforms to radiused and irregular shell configurations found in absorbers, drying towers, scrubbers, batch/attack tanks, cooling towers, and incinerators.
Application consists of Atlastic 55 Primer on the steel or concrete substrate. Atlastic 55 Sheet is heated to soften, then applied and pressed in place to prevent any air entrapment. The sheets are joined with Atlastic 55 Rod applied over seams, heated and smoothed.
Depending on the design of the masonry or brick sheathing, Atlastic 55 Sheet can be used at process solution temperatures up to 325°F, or 163°C, and is resistant to variety of chemicals including water solutions of alkalies, salts and non-oxidizing acids. Applied exclusively by Atlas Authorized Applicators, quality and durability is ensured every time
