Leak-Seal Tape is unique reinforcing fabric combined with a special 1mm (approx.) self adhesive waterproofing compound.
Used in conjunction with waterproofing membranes, it provides the ultimate method in waterproofing and sealing joints, corners and cracks.
Leak-Seal Tape is simple to apply, is quick, saves time, money and importantly provides the ultimate in waterproofing technique, and long term reliability and protection
Waterproofs and seals corners, joints, cracks and gaps.
Leak-Seal Tape should be used in conjunction with waterproofing membranes for ultimate waterproofing protection
Leak-Seal Tape is suitable for clean, primed, even and relatively smooth building surfaces including concrete, render, block work, brick, plaster board, fibre board, CFC sheeting, metal, timber and fibre-glass surfaces
The information contained in this product data sheet is typical but does constitute a full specification as conditions and specific requirements may vary from project to project. The instructions should be considered as a minimum requirement but the applicator or contractor must use their skill, knowledge and experience to carry out additional works as may be necessary to meet the requirements of the project. Specification for specific projects should be sought from the Company in writing.
Surfaces must be even and smooth to allow a good bond. Leak-Seal Tape is not recommended for surfaces that are rough, pebbled, textured, spiky or similar.
Benefits and Advantages
Leak-Seal Tape is a waterproof applicator's best friend. It provides the best solution to long-term waterproofing of joints, cracks and corners, saves time, effort and money. The membrane can be applied directly to Leak-Seal Tape.
Peel and stick.
Has a tough, flexible and technically advanced waterproof backing.
Gives greater protection that conventional methods of waterproofing.
Long term protection.
Precautions in Use
Leak-Seal Tape is considered safe to use if used as intended.
Good preparation is essential. Surfaces must be sound, stable, dry, clean and free of dust, loose, flaking, friable material and substances that may diminish adhesion.
Surfaces must be sound, dry and free of contaminants, dust, dirt, oil, grease, waxes and any adhesion detracting substances and smooth and even enough to allow good adhesion to the surface.
Prime surfaces with Primeseal MC
To corners and joints apply a flexible polyurethane joint sealant in the usual manner. The Leak-Seal Tape can be applied directly and immediately over the sealant provided that the bead of sealant is no more than 10mm wide.
Peel and stick the Leak-Seal Tape , centred over the joint, crack or corner.
Overlaps should be at least 100mm.
It is important that pressure be applied uniformly to the tape by a block, roller or broad-knife to ensure a good bond.
Leak-Seal Tape can be applied over the wet polyurethane sealant provided that the bead of sealant is no more than 10mm wide.
As soon as the tape is installed the membranes can be applied over it.
Coat over the Leak-Seal Tape with a suitable Wrimco waterproofing membrane extending to the substrate as would usually be done or required for that product. Refer to the relevant product data sheet.
The stated average coverage rate may vary depending upon type, condition, porosity, texture of the surface and application technique.
White matting with a grey waterproof backing.
Drying and Curing
Drying and curing of the product is affected by type, dryness and porosity of the surface, temperature, humidity, ventilation, climate conditions and application technique and therefore drying and curing can only be given as a guide.
Store in cool, dry and protected area.
Tiling, Topping or Top Coating
After installation and application of the waterproofing membrane the area can be tiled, topped and coated. Refer to the data sheet of the relevent waterproofing membrane.
Safety & Precautions
