Mapetex 50 is a black coloured non-woven fabric; weight 50 g/m². Mapetex 50 is made from single heat-welded polypropylene threads, through a process that guarantees an homogeneous product, and it is particularly recommended for providing added strength to ready-to-use liquid membranes.
Due to its special properties, Mapeflex 50 improves the mechanical characteristics of the products it is combined with (toughness, puncture resistance, elongation at failure and crack-bridging ability).
Prepare the substrate as specified in the relative Technical Data Sheet of the waterproofing product selected.
Apply the first coat of the selected product to the thickness recommended, and as the product is applied gradually, lay Mapetex 50 immediately and press it down with a flat trowel or spiked roller so that it is embedded in the membrane. Wait until the membrane is completely dry. Apply a second even layer of the selected product so that it completely covers the Mapetex 50. Adjacent sheets of Mapetex 50 must overlap by at least 5 cm at both the longitudinal and transverse junction points.
If it rains between the first and second layer of liquid membrane, make sure the Mapetex 50 is completely dry before applying the second layer.
The manufacturers data sheets are available for download from this website. It is your responsibility to read and understand all aspects of the data sheets before you place an order and prior to application. Please pay special attention to the preparation, mixing and application temperatures of the product, cleaning of substrate and environmental factors such as temperature, rain etc. Quoted coverage rates are based on the manufacturers theoretical rates and may vary depending upon substrates absorption, texture and application. We always recommend a test is carried out to ensure suitability.
