Mapei Mapeband - Vapour & Water-Resistant Sealing Corner - EXTERNAL
Rubber tape with alkali-resistant fabric for cementitious waterproofing systems
WHERE TO USE
- Waterproofing corners between adjacent walls and between walls and floors before treating with Mapelastic or Mapelastic Smart.
- Flexible waterproofing of expansion joints on terraces and balconies, etc. before treating with Mapelastic or Mapelastic Smart.
- Sealing pipes and drains in bathrooms, showers and kitchens in conjunction with Mapeband gaskets.
- Sealing expansion joints in precast panels.
Mapeband is a vapour and water-resistant rubber tape with fabric edging which is resistant to alkali.
Mapeband is elastic and deformable even at low temperatures with excellent resistance to adverse weather conditions.
Mapeband is resistant to alkalis, acids and salt solutions (for special cases, test before using).
Mapeband is also available in ready-made internal and external corner sections along with Mapeband gaskets for pipes in bathrooms, kitchens, showers, etc.
- For perfect sealing on corners use Mapeband 90° and 270° special corner pieces.
- For perfect sealing on pipes use Mapeband gaskets.
- In correspondence with T or cross joints, use the special Mapeband T or Mapeband Cross profiles.
Apply a thin layer of Mapelastic or Mapelastic Smart, at least 1 mm thick, to the sides of the corners and expansion joints to be waterproofed with Mapeband. Apply the fabric side of the Mapeband tape or special pieces over the fresh layer of Mapelastic or Mapelastic Smart, using a smooth trowel. It is essential that Mapelastic or Mapelastic Smart wet both sides of the Mapeband, also the rubber tape, for a width of several mm. For movement joints (i.e. in terraces) Mapeband must be positioned in the shape of an omega Ω (see overleaf): Mapeband can then be subjected to tension. Joints between Mapeband strips must be sealed with Adesilex T, Adesilex T Super or Adesilex LP.
