AquaStrap is a leading butyl up-stand seal used for sealing a shower tray/pan or bath tub. For those people installing a new shower tray or bath who prefer an exposed silicone joint to an extruded profile, AquaStrap will remain watertight in the event of the silicone seal leaking through joint movement or natural deterioration.
Aquastrap comprises of:
1. EPDM up-stand
2. Up-stand isolating membrane
3. Butyl adhesive tape
4. Butyl adhesive isolating cord
5. Lower adhesive release liner
6. Upper adhesive release liner
7. Sealux-N silicone
What makes AquaStrap the best EPDM Upstand Seal on the market ?
Factory applied isolating materials on the EPDM up-stand and butyl adhesive upper boundary prevent direct contact with sealant.
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!
