The partially glazed roof dome of the Competence Centre for Satellite-Based Communication and Information (SKR) was waterproofed with liquid resins to realise a highly individual design. The fully fleecereinforced Wecryl roof waterproofing system with
European Technical Approval was used here. Without a primer, it adheres securely to the bituminous underlay that acts as a separating layer. Applied as a liquid, it adapts beautifully and seamlessly to the rounded shape, just like a second skin, and homogeneously incorporates every detail.
Any unevenness caused by the work and the system was smoothed over and the dome sealed in pastel blue as the base colour. The continents were outlined using a prepared film and filled in with a gentian blue finish.
