Sealings

For sealing around floor drains, use self-adhesive Alfix Drain-mat.

Remove half the protective silicon paper along the perforated line and subsequently fix to substrate and gully installation. Degrease gully flange before overbridging with drain mat.

Remove any clam ring!
In junctions between wall and floor, for internal vertical corners, and around pipe penetrations or sanitary installations, use self-adhesive Alfix Seal- Strip.

Application of Alfix Seal Strip is made by folding the strip together along the longitudinal cross cut and subsequently removing the protective silicon paper along the perforated line. Press the strip firmly to the substrate.

Alternatively, use Alfix Reinforced Strip bedded in sealing membrane.
For bridging over cracks and for reinforcing joints, use Alfix Reinforced Strip bedded in Alfix Sealing Membrane 2K.

Shelf life

Min. 6 months in unopened packaging. Keep free from frost at stable temperatures ranging between 10–25°C. If exposed to large fluctuations in temperature, the binder part may become lumpy.

How to use

Surfaces

Cement/sand rendering, older than 2 days
Concrete, older than 14 days, max. 90% relative humidity
Lightweight concrete, max. moisture content 8%
Aerated concrete
Screed, older than 2 days
Existing tiles and terrazzo.
Plywood, only floors. Max. moisture content 7 - 12%
Gypsum plaster, fibre-reinforced plasterboards, plasterboards.
Cementious boards suitable for wet room use.

Surface preparation

The surface should be dimensionally stable, sound, and clean. Free from laitance, grease, and dust. There should be no blooms, crack formations, or residues from form oil.

All absorbent, moisture-sensitive surfaces, such as rendering, brick work, aerated concrete, concrete, light-weight concrete, screed, cementious or PVC boards should be primed with Alfix Primer (Sealing Primer), diluted 1:1 with water.

Plaster boards for wet room use and fibre-reinforced boards should be primed twice with Alfix Primer undiluted to full coverage.

For other wet room boards, please consult our Technical Services Dept.
Plywood (floors only) should be primed with 2 applications of Alfix Primer; first coat should be applied diluted 1:3 with water. Second coat applied undiluted.

Existing tiles and terrazzo should be cleaned with Alfix Deep Cleaner.

How to use

Carefully add Alfix Quick Cement to Alfix 2K Binder in the proportion 1:1 while stirring with a rotating drill. Mix until a smooth, lump-free paste is obtained. Working time is approx. 2 hours
Apply sealing membrane to the surface to full coverage leaving no voids.
For wet room use, coverage should be 1.2 - 1.5 kg/m².
For pools and basement walls, coverage should be 2.5 kg/m².
Apply 2-3 applications with steel trowel. First application should be a thin pore filling coat leaving no voids. Subsequent applications should be made with 4x4 mm notched trowel. Complete by smoothing the surface with straight trowel edge. When used in wet rooms, ensure that Reinforcing Tape, Seal-Strip, and Drain mat are completely over-bridged.
For pools and basement walls, only use Alfix 2K Sealing Membrane in standard grey and Alfix Reinforcing Strip.

Drying time after first coat: 0.5 – 1 hour
Drying time after second (and third) coat: approx. 6 hours
Even by low temperatures or exposed to high humidity total drying time will not exceed 24 hours.

NB!

Mixing of subvolume: Mixing ratio: 3 parts binder to 1 part cem ent by weight/volume. For example, measure 0.5 litre of cement and 1.5 litre of binder in a clean bucket of su itable size, and mix with stirrer on drilling machine to a smooth mixture.
During work substrate and membrane should hold the same temperature. Protect membrane from heat or draught.
Thicknesses exceeding 2 mm may cause crack formations.

Cleaning

Tools should be cleaned with water before residues start to set. Once set, 2K Sealing membrane can be removed mechanically.
