Surface Preparation

Surface to be covered must be clean, sound, dry and free of any grease, oils and loose materials. Allow material to warm in sun before application. 

Mixing

super laykold tape is supplied in rolls ready for use.

Coverage

Use size as required to cover area necessary.

Application

Choose the correct width of super laykold tape for the area to be sealed, ensuring a 40 mm overlap is achieved. Cut the correct length ensuring a 50 mm overlap is achieved. All gaps need to be filled prior with bitu.®seal plastic or cement before applying the super laykold tape. Peel back 150 mm of the backing paper from the one end and then press the tape onto the surface. Continue pressing well into angles and grooves along the tape, while removing the adequate amount of backing paper. Remove air bubbles by smoothing from centre towards edges and firmly press edges down. 

Cleaning

Tools, brushes and mixing equipment should be cleaned immediately after use and before material has set with abe® super brush cleaner followed by washing with soap and water.
