Clearing the air from the atmosphere through your roof, a simple and free gesture
With Derbicolor FR with olivine green granules on the surface, you are looking for a solution that makes the air in our cities healthier. Very simple! Install this waterproofing membrane on your flat or sloping roof for both renovation and new construction.
Depollutes the atmosphere of our cities
The top layer of the Derbicolor FR Olivine membrane is covered with olivine granules based on olivine mineral. When it rains, CO2 comes into contact with the olivine on the roof. A chemical reaction takes place, neutralising the CO2 from the atmosphere of our cities. The end result of this reaction is a mixture of silica dioxide (sand) and magnesium carbonate: two neutral, environmentally friendly products for healthier air. This is the aim of Mount Stewart School in England.
Highly adherent flakes
The quality of Derbigum’s premium membranes validates a durability of 40 years. The BBA report (link to the report) confirms this after surveying 40-year-old roofs at various European sites.
In addition, the olivine granules are perfectly adherent and do not clog the drainpipes in high winds.
At the end of its life cycle, Derbicolor FR olivine is 100% recyclable for a more circular economy.
Protecting the environment is a participatory act as an eco-citizen. You reduce greenhouse gases but you also use natural materials: bitumen and olivine mineral. The olivine granules are derived from the olivine mineral of the silicate group, which is widespread throughout the world. It has an olive-green colour, hence its name, and gives your roof a beautiful natural olive green hue.
1 kg of olivine granules has the capacity to neutralise 1.25 kg of CO2 . The Derbicolor FR Olivine membrane contains 1.4 kg of olivine/m², so it has the capacity to neutralise 1.75 kg CO2 /m².
Do you want to know how many CO2 you will avoid when using Derbicolor FR Olivine on your own flat roof ? You do nothing, your roof works for the nature. You will be impressed by the results !
