VectorGrid Mesh Conduction Layer for EFVM Testing from ILD

International Leak Detection's (ILD's) VectorGrid Mesh Conduction Layer plays a significant role in low-voltage Electric Field Vector Mapping, or EFVM, the latest leak detection solution in Australia that makes flood testing of waterproofing membranes a thing of the past.

For successful EFVM testing, the membrane being tested must be positioned over a conductive and earthed substrate. Reinforced concrete buildings or structures are easily tested as they are earthed through their reinforcing steel. ILD VectorGrid is enforced in the presence of non-conductive light construction materials, with the conduction layer installed atop the substrate prior to the membrane being placed. In case a roof system uses thermal or acoustic insulation, VectorGrid is laid directly beneath the membrane to allow for seamless EFVM testing.

A roof system makeup incorporating ILD VectorGrid would read;

  1. Overburden/Garden
  2. Geotextile layer
  3. ILD Vector 9 cable
  4. Waterproofing layer
  5. ILD VectorGrid
  6. ILD connection box
  7. Insulation buildup
  8. Damp proofing
  9. Primer or separation layer
  10. Concrete roof/deck

In cases of lightweight roof design with no overburden, the makeup would only require ILD Vector 9 cable on the surface, waterproofing layer, ILD VectorGrid, and plywood/lightweight roof deck.
