Wet Area Waterproofing
The scope called for a high level waterproofing system with bullet proof reliability.
The Ardex Weldtec system was chosen as the sheet membrane solution for this project. The Weldtec sheet guarantees film thickness, all joints are heat welded and is compliant to AS 4654. The system can be flooded tested 1 hour after completion.
The substrated is cleaned and primed as required.
Detailing works completed with WPM 1000 and STB tape.
Application of WA 98 adhesive followed by WPM 1000 heat welded sheet membrane.
Tiling or screeding can occur after 1 hour.
