Light, full-surface adhesive, permeable airtightness and weathering-protection membrane

Advantages

  • Protects the structure: Diffusion-permeable and maximum protection against driving rain
  • 4 weeks of outdoor exposure to protect floors during construction
  • Keeps building components dry by means of a pore-free moisture-active functional membrane
  • Easy and reliable installation thanks to its split release film - sticks immediately to subsurfaces with sufficient load-bearing capacity
  • Permanent protection thanks to the high resistance to ageing and heat of the TEEE membrane
  • 3 months of outdoor exposure for inclined roofs and walls

Areas of application

Steep roofs and walls

Allows airtightness to be achieved on wood-based products and mineral subsurfaces – e.g. on the exterior side of unplastered (fair-faced) masonry or concrete components with joints. For roofs, it also fulfils the requirements of the Central Association of the German Roofing Trade (ZVDH) for an underlay and for temporary coverings for the specified time period.

Temporary protection for ceilings/floors during construction

Thanks to its full-surface adhesion, this product provides temporary protection for intermediate ceilings and floors on multi-storey CLT (cross-laminated timber) or wooden-frame buildings during the construction period.

Installation instructions

General conditions

Steep roofs and walls

SOLITEX ADHERO 1000 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.

This product can also 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.

Temporary protection for ceilings/floors during construction

SOLITEX ADHERO 1000 is to be installed with the printed side facing the installation technician; it can be installed on stable subsurfaces (e.g. CLT, OSB, chipboard and plywood sheets). To achieve waterproof installation, membranes must be installed with no folds or creases. When installing the membranes, rub them firmly into place using a brush or PRESSFIX XL, for example.

If SOLITEX ADHERO 1000 is to be stuck to floor/ceiling elements during the prefabrication stage, TESCON VANA must be used to stick the element/membrane joints. Select the width so that a width of at least 5 cm (2") can be stuck on both of the elements. For joints, stick at least 5 cm (2") of TESCON VANA onto SOLITEX ADHERO 1000. Create a joint height of approx. 10-15 cm (4" - 6") at protruding walls.

SOLITEX ADHERO 1000 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 4 weeks.

Water is to be drained from the surface of the building component, e.g. using ADHERO Floor Drain. A short-term build-up depth (max. 24 hours) of 30 mm (1 1/4") must not be exceeded.

Substrate

Steep roofs and walls

Clean subsurfaces before sticking. 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 with 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, unplastered masonry or plaster.
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 required in the case of adhesion to wood-fibre underlay panels or subsurfaces that have insufficient stability.

Temporary protection for floor during construction

Clean subsurfaces before sticking – remove any protruding elements. 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.

It is your responsibility to check the suitability of the subsurface; adhesion tests are recommended in certain cases.
