Instructions

Mixture
  • If necessary, mix the insulation before use.
Pretreatment of the base
  • The base must be dry, dust-free and level, solid and immobile
  • Remove any cement paste and weak or eroded surface
  • Level uneven floors with Fescon Floor Levelling Compound and walls with Fescon Levelling Compound for Wet Areas WTT
  • Treat the bases with Fescon Adhesive Primer according to the instructions
  • Switch underfloor heating off two days before waterproofing
Spreading the waterproofing compound

The temperature of the room and the base must be between + 10 and + 30 °C. The moisture content of the concrete base must be below 90% RH. The working conditions must remain constant throughout the entire work.

Spread the waterproofing compound first into corners, joints, lead-throughs and around the floor drain. Fasten a reinforcement strip in these locations using a brush or a roller. Make sure that the strip is wet throughout. Place a 2 x 30 x 30 cm fibre membrane around the floor drain, or a 40 x 40 flexible drain flange. Do not apply waterproofing compound inside the floor drain.

Next, apply the waterproofing compound to the entire area to be treated. Allow to dry for four to eight hours. After drying, the waterproofing compound is grey in colour. Apply a second layer of the waterproofing compound. Allow to dry for twelve hours before beginning to lay tiles. Cut a hole at the floor drain with a diameter 40 mm smaller than the drain diameter, fold and clamp the membrane to the inner surface of the drain using a clamp ring. Wash tools and equipment with water immediately after completing thee work.
