Vector Mapping Conductive Mediums (Patented)

What Are Vector Mapping Conductive Mediums?

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.

How Do They Work?

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:

VECTOR MAPPING GRID™ (VMG™)

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.

Projects:

  • Javits Center, New York, NY
  • TTC Victoria Park Station, Toronto, ON
  • ŸVictoria Desalination Plant, Victoria, Australia

VECTOR MAPPING MESH™ (VMM™)

A fine aluminum screen that is utilized in loosely laid membrane systems.

Projects:

  • Golden Eye Data Centre, Ontario, Canada
  • Andrew’s Air Force Base, MD
  • FedEx, Chicago O’Hare Airport, Chicago, IL
  • Yankee Stadium, New York, NY

VECTOR MAPPING FELT™ (VMF™)

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.

Projects:

  • Centro Intercoop in Bergamo, Italy
  • Infineon, Warstein, Germany
  • University of Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany
  • Municipal Building, Berkelland, Netherlands
  • MTU Aero Engines, Munich, Germany

ADVANTAGES OF VECTOR MAPPING CONDUCTIVE MEDIUMS:

  • Early detection of breaches in fully adhered single ply built up roofs after installation
  • Allows for testing of non-conductive structural decks
  • Minimizes the ground fault connection from the lightning protection system
