Does it penetrate heat or cold? In other words, does it provide heat insulation?
ONDUVILLA® is not a heat insulation material.
Heat insulation is related with the materials heat conductivity coefficient and thickness. Due to the fact that ONDUVILLA® heat conductivity coefficient is low it cannot provide heat insulation because its thickness is low.
In case that heat insulation is required, underneath ONDUVILLA®, a thermic insulation material with required thickness and at least 18 kg/m3 density should be placed and applied afterwards.
In case that the thermic insulation is placed between the beams, the heat insulation material can be at any density.

How long is its guarantee?
Our company gives written waterproofness guarantee for ONDUVILLA® sheets for a period of 10 years in case that the application is approved by our technical staff members and accessories of ONDUVILLA® are used.

The Mono Block Nail heads are not affected by the climatic conditions and UV rays. Original mono block nails should always be preferred during application.
