WATERPROOFING PROFILE WITH HIGH MECHANICAL RESISTANCE

START BAND

START BAND is the highly mechanically resistant waterproofing profile for the long-term protection of walls and foundation walls against rising damp.

It is also ideal in extreme temperatures and for use as a general purpose wall barrier.

START BAND, THE WATERPROOFING SHEATH WITH SUPERIOR RESISTANCE

Due to its elasticity, the START BAND waterproofing profile is extremely easy to install even around corners and is resistant in case of perforations or mechanical fastening. It is compatible with bitumen, does not degrade and is resistant to low temperatures, UV rays and wear from walking.

The START BAND profile is also available in an adhesive version (STARTA120 and STARTA160), ideal when applied in combination with ALU START, for an infallible connection to the ground.

Specifications

Supply and installation of waterproofing profile with high mechanical resistance, type START BAND

Composition:

Support EPDM-based synthetic rubber

Properties:

  • Temperature resistance [°C] : -30/+100

It can be applied on various smooth building substrates such as timber, OSB boards without additional surface treatment. The surfaces must be dry, free of dust and solvents such as grease or oil. We recommend the use of PRIMER for rough surfaces such as rough OSB boards. Once the tape has been applied, it is recommended to use the special roller RLL45 to obtain a perfect application.
