3/160 Membrane) 3.0mm Combined Reinforced APP Bitumen Membrane
WPM 150 (Shelterbit 3/160) is an A.P.P. (Atactic Polypropylene) Plastomeric
type modified bitumen membrane, consisting of a specially formulated bituminous
compound of distilled asphalt modified with selected high grade visco-elastic
polymers and reinforced with a polyester reinforcement. ARDEX WPM 150 is coated
with either a sanded or talc top surface finish, while the bottom surface is
embossed and protected by a heat sensitive polythene film. This type of finish
for the lower surface has been chosen for two specific purposes:
To act as a temperature gauge during application. When the film melts it shows
that the compound is at the correct temperature.
The embossing is to allow the gases to rapidly escape when heated to its
correct installation temperature avoiding possible problems of bubbling and
cold flexibility to 5oC.
welded laps provide homogenous joint.
WPM 150 is used as a single layer or multi-layer tanking membrane in horizontal
or vertical applications, also for waterproofing balconies, terraces and roofs.
application of ARDEX WPM 150 should be carried out by an accredited applicator.
Installation shall be strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s
recommendations. All surfaces to which the ARDEX Shelterbit systems are
installed must be properly prepared prior to installation. All surfaces must be
clean, dry, smooth, and free of sharp edges, fines, loose or foreign materials,
oil, grease and other materials which may damage the membrane. New concrete
must be cured a minimum of 28 days prior to the installation. ARDEX WPM 150
Apply to all surfaces one coat of ARDEX WPM 240 Bituminous Primer at a coverage
rate of 5 square metres per litre and allow to dry thoroughly. Note: when used
as an intermediate layer over a base sheet, primer is not required. A layer of
ARDEX WPM 150 (Shelterbit Membrane) shall be installed over all surfaces to be
treated by LPG torch application techniques by an ARDEX accredited applicator.
The ARDEX WPM 150 (Shelterbit Membrane) must be fully bonded with side laps of
7.5cm and end laps of 10cm. The membrane must be detailed in accordance with
ARDEX recommendations. Overlaps shall be sealed by torch.
WPM 150 is hazardous; non-dangerous goods. However during installation exercise
caution when working with open flame. Examine all surfaces to which the flame
has been applied for smouldering or burning conditions. Do not use open flame
on or near highly combustible materials. Follow all local fire codes.
rolls of ARDEX WPM 150 should be stored in a covered area protected against
sunlight and UV radiation. Rolls should be stored in a vertical position on a
smooth floor so as not to damage the edges.
