Prime all surfaces with, including all verges, and around outlets and protrusions and allow the solvent to flashoff. Extremely porous surfaces should be re-primed.

  • abedex.® unigum or abedex F-SR 3 mm
  • abedex.® unigum or abedex F-SR 4 mm

Full bore outlets, pipe upstands to have a square metre abedex.®unigum 4 mm or abedex.® F-SR 4 mm bonded to the surface including their gussets. All internal and external corners to have a gusset fitted, 100 mm x 100 mm, using abedex.® unigum 4 mm or abedex.® F-SR 4 mm prior to the commencement of the waterproofing application.

Apply the first layer abedex.® unigum 3 mm or abedex.abedex.® F-SR 3 mm.

Apply the second layer abedex.® unigum 4 mm or abedex.abedex.® F-SR 4 mm, ensuring it is fully bonded by means of “torch on fusion” using propane gas, having side and end laps of 100 mm and 150 mm respectively.

The rolls are to run parallel to each other, centrally staggered to prevent joints overlapping.

All side and end laps should be staggered. Ull upturns to be a minimum of 150 mm protruding above finished ground level.
