TruGround® Conductive Primer

LISTED

A patented formulation that enables what was, until now, not possible: A truly reliable Electronic Leak Detection (ELD) test for conventional roof assemblies.

TruGround® Conductive Primer provides the required conductive substrate DIRECTLY below the membrane to ensure valid ELD testing per ASTM D7877.

There is a lot of confusion and myths regarding testing conventional roof assemblies using Electronic Leak Detection. Here is a TECHNICAL NOTE to help clear up the confusion.

Section 5.5 of ASTM D7877 (Standard Guide for Electronic Methods for Detecting & Locating Leaks in Waterproof Membranes) states, “Electric conductance leak location requires that the deck material directly below the membrane be sufficiently conductive for the test method employed.”  Detec Systems strictly adheres to the ASTM D7877.

Other conductive mediums such as the Vector Mapping Grid (VMG), is often placed incorrectly below the coverboard or insulation.

FEATURES

  • UL Listed
  • Made in the USA
  • Provides the required conductivity per ASTM D7877 for valid ELD testing on conventional roof assemblies, including black EPDM
  • Compatible with high voltage and low voltage ELD methods
  • Chemically and mechanically compatible with fully-adhered, mechanically attached and torch-down membrane systems
  • Less than 30-minute dry time under normal conditions
  • Retesting can be performed for the life of the membrane, should a breach occur at a later date
  • Non-reflective, flat black to ensure complete coverage
  • Water-based (non-flammable & solvent-free)
  • Low VOC, meets Southern California’s strict emissions control requirements for primers
  • Roll, spray, or pre-apply to cover boards, insulation or wood
  • Easily applied to transitions and details where other conductive mediums cannot be used
  • Each 5 gallon pail covers approximately 1250 square feet on most common roofing coverboards.  Porous substrates such as wood reduces the coverage rate
