General conditions

SOLITEX ADHERO is to be installed with the printed side facing the installation technician; it can be installed on stable subsurfaces (e.g. OSB, chipboard, MDF, plywood sheets, wood fibre underlay panels, layers of plaster (e.g. gypsum, lime, lime cement), masonry, concrete etc.). The membranes can be installed on walls either vertically or horizontally in an overlapping, waterproof manner. If significant rain loads are expected (e.g. in roof areas or on walls with high loads of driving rain), horizontal waterproof installation is recommended.

To achieve airtight installation, membranes must be installed with no folds or creases. When installing the membranes, rub them firmly into place using PRESSFIX XL.

SOLITEX ADHERO can be used as a underlay membrane as temporary covering for up to 3 months to protect the building structure during the construction phase in accordance with the regulations of the Central Association of the German Roofing Trade (ZVDH). In this case, the roof pitch must be at least 14°. In addition, system components such as the TESCON NAIDECK nail sealing tape and the KAFLEX / ROFLEX pipe and cable grommets are to be used. The specifications in the regulations of the German Roofing Trade are to be taken into account when carrying out installation and adhesion.

Substrate

Before adhesion is carried out, subsurfaces should be brushed off, wiped clean with a cloth or cleaned using compressed air. Adhesion to frozen surfaces is not possible. There must be no water-repellent substances (e.g. grease or silicone) on materials to be bonded. Subsurfaces must be sufficiently dry and stable.

Bonding and joints are possible on planed and painted wood, hard plastics and metal (e.g. pipes, windows etc.), hard wood-based panels (chipboard, OSB, plywood, MDF and wood fibre underlay panels) and mineral subsurfaces such as concrete, non-plastered masonry or plaster.
Pretreatment with TESCON PRIMER is required in the case of adhesion to wood-fibre underlay panels. Concrete or plaster subsurfaces must not be sandy or crumbling.

It is your responsibility to check the suitability of the subsurface; adhesion tests are recommended in certain cases. Pretreatment with TESCON PRIMER is necessary in the case of subsurfaces with insufficient stability.
