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 provide temporary protection for intermediate ceilings and floors on multi-storey CLT (cross-laminated timber) or wooden-frame buildings during construction for a period of up to 14 days.
It can also be used on exterior walls.
Additionally, it can be used as a temporary covering for up to 3 months to protect inclined roofs with a roof pitch of greater than 14° in accordance with the regulations of the Central Association of the German Roofing Trade (ZVDH).
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.
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.
