The AquaStrap Shower Seal
The EPDM up-stand is a tough durable flexible material that is not easily torn or pierced. These properties make it an ideal secondary and permanent water barrier behind the first line of defence – the sealant.
The butyl adhesive is a strong tacky black age resistant band that provides strong flexible sealing bond between with the EPDM up-stand and adjacent side perimeter wall to which attached.
Both the EPDM up-stand and butyl adhesive are polymeric materials and BS6213 advises that consideration is given to the preparation of such materials to prevent direct contact with reactive sealants.
Two release liners on the adhesive face allow a ‘hang and bond’ first and second fix installation method. This makes installation very simple!
After completion of the hanging process, the lower release liner is removed and Aquastrap is permanently bonded to the first side wall.The remaining side walls are done in a similar fashion.
What differentiates Aquastrap from others up-stand seals is that Aquastrap is supplied with pre-applied sealant isolating materials (saving installation time) and two butyl adhesive release liners (easing the installation).
