Sealing System of a new Generation.
What is ProElast®?
The ProElast® – system is a protected system for sealing construction joints, desired crack cross-section and expansion joints against soil moisture, non pressing, temporary damming and pressing water. It consists of two components:
- ProElast® Type I – Foil (EPDM – sealing foil )
- InnoElast® Type I (area adhesive)
The ProElast® – system has a general building inspection test certificate as usability proof for the upper applications. The ProElast® – system is UV-resistant and also usable for applications in building constructions. A mechanical attachment (clamping rail/flanges) of the edges is not necessary.
Why to use ProElast® system?
ProElast® sealing system is easy to use. It only consists of 2 components – a special EPDM foil and a high-efficient glue (InnoElast® type 1). The ProElast® system features high impermeability to water, as well as weather- and UV resistance. Its typical application area includes working joints and dummy joints in watertight concrete. Moreover, you can also durably seal joints, cracks and gaps in roofs, shafts and tanks with this system. Its application area is almost unlimited. ProElast® system is a good solution for all cases in which you need to stop water. Combined with a special EPDM foil and an innovative InnoElast® type 1 glue, the ProElast® system was granted a General Test Certificate issued by the German construction supervision body. The certificate permits using of the system at water pressures up to 2 bar (20 m water column).
Good working properties of the glue enlarge its area application considerably. You can used it even at -3ºC temperature of building components and/or at humid bases, as well. The versatile InnoElast® glue also acts as a sealing compound and means double safety of your sealing. Besides working joints and dummy joint sections, this officially tested efficient system of a large foil width can also be used for rehabilitation work, for expansion- or contraction joints and for many other applications, too. There is no need of mechanical fastening (parallel attachments or flanges). So you can also seal joints of buildings und other joints in a completely new way.
Make sure that the base is firm and free of grease, oil and dust.Apply the InnoElast® glue and distribute it on the surface with a serrated trowel (B3) Layer thickness is 1.5 mm.
Lay the sealing foil (ProElast®1.0 >300mm) in the middle of the joint surface. Apply it with a roller so that the layer thickness becomes about 1 mm. Make sure that no air bubbles remain under the foil.Glue the butts by overlapping them at 100mm.
Seal the free edges with InnoElast® type 1.
Before grouting the foundation pit, observe the curing time stated in the Data Sheet!Protect the ProElast® foil from external mechanic damage!
