Laminate No Crack Waterproof system helps specifiers create innovative and secure outdoor flooring surfaces
Kerakoll’s Laminate No Crack Waterproof system allows balconies and outside terraces to be waterproofed fast and effectively, creating a safe and secure surface.
The system consists of two layers of Biogel No Limits or Biogel Revolution adhesive. The first layer creates a bond between the substrate and the underside of the Green-Pro waterproofing membrane.
The second layer bonds the tiles to the membrane. The whole system forms a fully bonded, laminated layer that can even be used on cracked substrates with residual moisture.
Biogel award-winning gel adhesives can be used on any substrate and with any type of tile. Biogel No Limits is the standard set version; Biogel Revolution the rapid set. They are easy to specify because the same adhesive is suitable for all projects. Pleasant and easy to use, they can be mixed to the desired consistency, hold their shape, don’t dry out in the bucket and have excellent 'wettability'.
The Green-Pro membrane is composed of three layers. The first has hydrophobic PA fibres that ensure a secure bond with the tile adhesive and restrict water movement within the adhesive. The second layer is an HDPE waterproof structure that accommodates movement within the substrate and compensates for stresses caused by hygrometric shrinkage and cracks. The third is a non-woven breathable fabric that allows vapour to disperse.
Together the three layers create an uncoupling mat that allows safe installation of tiles and stone over cracked and uncured screeds where waterproofing is required.
When using the Green-Pro membrane for waterproofing, the corners, joins, junctions and edges must have Kerakoll Aquastop 120 tape embedded into Aquastop Fix sealant to ensure water-tightness. This is a waterproofing product that uses nano-technology to make it totally water-repellent and give it high chemical stability.
There is no waiting time before laying coverings on top of Aquastop Fix so installers can fix the tiles immediately using Biogel No Limits or Revolution to create a secure adhesive bond between the tiles and membrane.
Every project is unique and it is important to take into account any particular issues that may be present. The Kerakoll commercial team is on hand to help architects and specifiers select the most suitable products for their installations.
