Delaminate actually means ‘’detaching’’. This is a process where various layers from which something is composed (for example, a coating on steel) become detached from each other. Delamination can be caused by minor damage in a facade or roof or as the result of, for example, edge peeling. Due to the capillary action of water (rising water) and other weather effects, the problem can escalate from bad to worse.
Where does this occur?
Delamination occurs on facades, roofs and also on connection pieces beside screws and transitions of parts.
What risk do you run?
It starts with a small piece, however in the course of time, the consequences cannot be predicted. Coatings of complete facades or roofs can become detached and fall off as the result of the effects of the weather. The underlying layers are then extremely susceptible to damage and rusting. Replacement of the cladding or applying a new coating is then necessary.
Can it be prevented?
In many cases, delamination can be limited or prevented by performing professional and periodic maintenance. Treating scratches and damage in the cladding in time is also necessary.
