About LEC

Dr. Fixit LEC is a green and sustainable waterproofing and insulation system for roofs and walls, based on a layered built-up system that permanently weatherproofs roofs and walls from rain lash, hot and cold temperatures and in turn, leads to high energy savings.

Conventional Method

The current practices of waterproofing using Brickbat Coba or membranes are not long-lasting solutions. Further, there is a need to insulate the buildings to reduce energy consumption in an effective manner.

ASSOCIATED PROBLEMS

Method Statement

LEC – Waterproofing & Insulation SURFACE PREPARATION

  • Clean the surface thoroughly to get rid of all contaminants. Remove all surface imperfections and repair with polymer modified mortar using Dr. Fixit Pidicrete URP

APPLICATION

  • Spray Dr. Fixit Foamshield at an average thickness of 30mm
  • Apply 2 coats of Dr. Fixit Roofseal over the Dr. Fixit Foamshield
  • Place a geotextile fabric of 150 gsm over the Dr. Fixit Roofseal
  • Place a bitumen filler board of 10mm thickness for construction joints to be placed vertically to form a rectangular bay not exceeding 12sq mtr
  • Lay a 100mm thick screed of M20 grade in the required slope
  • Apply an angular fillet of 50 mm X 50 mm all around the roof on the parapet wall junction
  • The grooves formed by the bituminous filler boards should be filled with Dr. Fixit PU sealant
  • Apply final coat of Dr. Fixit Newcoat Ezee

To test the system as well as present sound evidence of its working, we compared specially constructed buildings using LEC to the conventional one as detailed in the illustration as shown.

MAINTAINS THERMAL COMFORT

Mentioned are the results made available to compare LEC versus conventional ones.

DR. FIXIT LEC SYSTEM

  • Reduced the internal temperature by 8-10°C
  • LEC system allowed buildings to remain comfortable with minimal or no AC
  • Saved power consumption by 50%

MINIMISES THERMAL STRESS

Let us also evaluate the difference of application of such a system on the inside temperature of the structure.

DR. FIXIT LEC SYSTEM

  • Reduced slab temperature by almost 12°C
  • Enhanced the time lag improving thermal comfort
  • Minimized thermal stress making the roof last longer
