Viking Phoenix Super APAO

Viking's 'Platinum' torch-on solution can be installed anywhere in the world. It is an APAO membrane that incorporates the best of APP and SBS membrane features.

Viking Phoenix Super APAO possesses all of the durability properties inherent in the Gemini APP membrane, with the elastomeric advantages in the Lybra SBS, resulting in a premium system. A key benefit is its unequalled cold flexibility down to (-35°C), coupled with high temperature resistance of +140°C. This means it can be used in any climate and will last longer than other systems.

Viking Phoenix Super APAO consists of a 4mm thick base sheet and a 4mm ceramic chip cap sheet which is then installed on top. It is installed in the same way as the other systems.

Viking Torch-on Phoenix Super APAO is CodeMark and BBA (British Board of Agreement) certified. BBA is one of the world’s highest accreditations for a construction product.
