1. Install the membrane
Roll out the membrane and use galvanised staples that are at least 10 mm (3/8") wide by 8 mm (5/16") long to fasten the membrane in the overlap area at intervals of 10-15 cm (4"-6") in a manner that protects against moisture entry. Install the membrane leaving an additional 4 cm (1 5/8") overlap at adjacent building components so that a windtight bond can be applied here subsequently.
2. Overlap the membranes
Clean the subsurface (dry and free of dust, silicone and grease). Overlap the membranes by approx. 10 cm (4") so that they are watertight. The printed markings are an aid to orientation.
3. Stick overlaps using ‘connect’ adhesion technology
Stick membrane overlaps in the case of 'connect' membranes with two integrated self-adhesive zones. Rub the stuck joint firmly using the pro clima PRESSFIX. Ensure that there is sufficient resistance pressure.
4. Alternatively: Taping over the overlaps with TESCON INVIS
Tape TESCON INVIS system adhesive tape centrally to the overlap and stick it down bit by bit so that it is load and wrinkle free. Rub tape firmly into place using the pro clima PRESSFIX. Ensure that there is sufficient resistance pressure.
5. Sticking to rough or mineral surfaces (e.g. floorboard)
Clean the surface. Apply a bead of ORCON F system adhesive – at least 5 mm (3/16") thick (more in the case of very rough surfaces). Lay the membrane with an expansion joint and not pressing the tape down completely to allow for movement of the parts.
6. Alternatively: Sticking to rough or mineral surfaces (e.g. floorboard)
Stick line of adhesive to the subsurface, remove release film and stick the membrane in place, leaving slack to allow for expansion.
7. Sticking to windows
In the case of recessed windows, cut into the membrane as shown in the sketch and guide into the reveal as far as the window frame.
8. Sticking to windows
Stick the membrane to the window frame so that it is windtight using TESCON PROFECT. Thanks to the split release paper it is possible to stick the tape first to the membrane and then, subsequently, to the window.
Alternatively, use TESCON INVIS.
9. Sticking to cables and pipes
Place KAFLEX or ROFLEX sealing grommets over the cable or pipe and stick to the membrane. In the case of large gap widths, stick over the blue cable grommet using TESCON INVIS. Tape the pipe grommets to the membrane with TESCON INVIS.
10. Seal angular penetrations
Slide the TESCON PROFECT pre-folded corner sealing tape into the corner on the release film and stick the first independent adhesive strip. Then remove the remaining release strips and stick the second side. Alternatively, this transition can be sealed using the black TESCON INVIS adhesive tape.
