ProctorGeo IRMA is a water resistant and vapour permeable spunbonded polyolefin non-woven geotextile designed for use as a separating layer in ballasted or paved Inverted Roof Membrane Assembly (IRMA) flat roofs.
ProctorGeo IRMA acts as a vapour permeable separating layer preventing the passage of sand, soil and other debris and acts as a water control layer reducing the rainwater cooling effect caused by rainwater flowing in between the insulation and roof waterproofing layer. ProctorGeo IRMA substitutes conventional fleece filter geofabrics that do not perform as an effective water draining separation layer.
Avoid Rainwater Cooling
When rainwater in IRMA roof systems flows beneath the insulation this impacts negatively on the thermal performance of the roof. By incorporating ProctorGeo IRMA as a water-flow reducing layer directly above the insulation to drain rainwater before it reaches the waterproof layer, the need to compensate for such losses (determined using the method described in BS EN ISO 6946:2007) can be avoided.

- CE Conformity
Although ProctorGeo IRMA can be used as temporary protection during construction, it can not be used as a primary waterproofing membrane. The product may be damaged by careless handling, high winds or vandalism, and should not be left uncovered for longer than is absolutely necessary. Any damaged areas should be replaced before completion.
Ensure that ProctorGeo IRMA is covered as soon as possible, and not left exposed to UV for longer than 4 weeks. ProctorGeo IRMA is not to be used in installations where it could be exposed to long term UV radiation.
Water shedding filter fabric should be ProctorGeo IRMA tested ETAG 031, installed in accordance with product user guide.
