Developed by the ILD® team through years of research and field installation, the Vector Mapping Conductive Mediums were created to test membranes or coatings over non-conductive substrates.
The conductive mediums are placed under a roof’s waterproofing material and connect to a contact plate, via a prefabricated cable to the contact box. The Vector-9 conductor wire on top of the membrane delivers direct current tension to the surface. Even in the case of minimal contact with moisture, the system closes the electrical circuit. Moisture penetration can be located quickly and cost-effectively repaired.
Three different conductive mediums allow for accurate EFVM® testing results:
A welded stainless steel mesh that can be utilized on the fully-adhered systems. This mesh is a non-corrosive material that prevents aging deterioration within the roofing system.
A fine aluminum screen that is utilized in loosely laid membrane systems.
A non-abrasive conductive fabric that can be used under a loosely laid or mechanically fastened roof assembly and embedded into hot liquid membrane systems.
