Butyle rubber 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. Butyle rubber tape is simple to apply, is quick,
saves time, money and importantly provides the ultimate in waterproofing
technique, and long term reliability and protection
seals corners, joints, cracks and gaps. Butyle rubber tape should be used
in conjunction with waterproofing membranes for ultimate waterproofing
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
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 Butyle rubber tape.
tape: Peel and stick. Has a tough, flexible and
technically advanced waterproof backing. Quick, easy. Saves
time. Gives greater protection that conventional methods of
waterproofing. Long term protection.
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.
To corners and
joints apply a flexible polyurethane joint sealant in the usual manner. The Butyle
rubber 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 Butyle rubber 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.
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 Butyle
rubber 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.
