      Stir well before use.


      2.1 l/m2 full system.


      1st coat (after priming):

      Apply by brush/roller using 1L/m2. Embed abe® membrane into wet coat, avoiding bubbles or wrinkles. Membrane overlaps minimum 100mm on end laps and 75mm on side laps.

      2nd coat: once 1st coat has dried (2 – 3 hours), apply 2nd coat by brush/roller using 0,5L/m2 and ensure membrane is fully saturated.

      3rd coat: once 2nd coat has dried, apply 3rd coat at different angle to 2nd coat using 0,5L/m2 .
