ARDEX WPM 3000X (Shelterseal 3000X Self Adhesive
Membrane) is a peel and stick bituminous/asphalt membrane protected by a
cross laminated high-density polyethylene film. ARDEX WPM 3000X is made from
two structural components. Bitumen/asphalt compound modified with SBS and high
tack resins. This special compound has been formulated to make the product easy
to install. The membrane can be adjusted should it initially be placed in the
wrong position, as the adhesive on the sheet achieves final adhesion only after
a few minutes. Protective film This is hot-laminated to the bituminous/asphalt
compound and gives the membrane its mechanical and physical characteristics,
such as heat stability, shape, chemical resistance, etc.
Cold application Installed without the use of open
flames. Ideal for installation in restricted spaces. Chemical resistance The
protective polymer film is highly resistant to acids, alkalis and other
pollutants. Flexibility and adaptability This membrane will adapt easily to
irregularly shaped surfaces, and will stretch without breaking or cracking.
Self sealing The membrane self seals on contact with substrate maintaining its
watertightness. Constant thickness The membrane is manufactured using high-tech
machinery which constantly monitors its thickness, and ensures that the films
and synthetic materials are manufactured to the highest specifications and
quality control requirements.
Concretes, renders and screeds.
Fibre cement sheets.
Structural or marine plywood.

BASIC APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Surface preparation Surfaces to which the ARDEX WPM 3000X
is to be installed must be properly prepared prior to installation. All
surfaces must be clean, dry, smooth, free of sharp edges, loose or foreign
materials, oil, grease, and other materials that may damage the membrane. If
concrete has moisture on surface apply one coat of ARDEX WPM 300 at a coverage
rate of 3.0m2/L and allow to cure for at least 3 days prior to proceeding.
Prior to the application of the membrane all prepared
surfaces (except polystyrene blocks) should be primed with ARDEX WPM 240
(Shelterbit Primer) at a rate of 5–6m2 per litre and allowed to dry. For
priming polystyrene blocks ARDEX WPM 300 is required.
Application of ARDEX WPM 3000X
ARDEX WPM 3000X should always be applied from the lowest
point to enable laps to shed water. All edge and end laps must be overlapped a
minimum of 60mm. Internal and external corners shall be reinforced with an
extra layer of membrane 300mm wide. All end laps and exposed edges should be
sealed. On vertical surfaces the installation should start at the lowest point
with the joints overlapping by at least 100mm, and formed so that they will
shed water. All rolls of ARDEX WPM 3000X are marked with a 60mm line for
overlapping. Ensure that the membrane is properly adhered to the surface at
perimeters or around penetrations. On completion of the installation of ARDEX
WPM 3000X it is recommended that a protection board be used before back filling
to protect the membrane from damage. Under no circumstances should the membrane
be left exposed to UV light for long periods.
Two layer DPC system
In critical areas a specifier may require a second layer
of ARDEX WPM 3000X to be applied with laps staggered to the first layer. ARDEX
WPM 3000X should be installed by approved applicators, well trained in the
application of self-adhesive membranes. Installation shall be strictly in
accordance with ARDEX recommendations.
ARDEX WPM 3000X is hazardous; non-dangerous goods. Wear
eye/face protection. Use only in well ventilated areas. Keep rolls in well
ventilated place. In case of contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water and
contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. ARDEX WPM 240 is hazardous;
dangerous goods. It is highly flammable, harmful if swallowed and irritating to
the eys and skin. Keep away from sources of ignition. No smoking. Keep
container tightly closed and in a well ventilated place. Additional information
for ARDEX WPM 3000X is found in the Material Safety Data SHeet.
All rolls of ARDEX WPM 3000X, whether palletised or
loose, should be stored in a cool 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.
