SealArm Tape TPE

High performance Expansion Joint

Product Description

SealArm Tape TPE is a thermoplastic high igh performance water proofing Joint Tape for expansion and connection joints
and cracks. It is to be installed with ReArm Bond 4031
4031. When fixed to the joint, it allows irregular and high movement in
more than one direction, whilst maintaining a high quality seal.
Uses Features and Benefits

Concrete, stone, mortar renderings: Substrate must be
clean, free from oil, grease, laitance or loose particles. Consumption of strip and adhesive:
Age of concrete should be 3-6 6 weeks depending on
environmental conditions. Strip width Strip thickness consumption per
. meter tape length*
Substrate Preparation:
Concrete, stone, mortar renderings: Blast cleaning or 100 mm 1mm 0.7 kg/m
equivalent mechanical means followed by thorough 200mm 1mm 1.2 kg/m
vacuum / dust removal. * Depends upon surface condition
