The waterproofing of a new building needs to be tested that requires a flooding test or water retention test. The roof drains are plugged, and the roof is flooded with water for the prescribled period of time.

After the flooding test, ASD for example require infrared images to check the new roof membrane is intact.

How does it work?

All objects have a surface temperature, for roof membrane testing in the event of water leakage the area will have a slightly different temperature, but since temperature is not visible to the naked eye, infrared camera shows the different temperatures.

Kelcroft's infrared camera can check and identify areas where water from the flooding test has penetrated under the new membrane.

Infrared scanning it is fast, accurate, non-destructive test (NDT) method that pin points water under the new roof membrane.
