Gas Resistant Self-adhesive Membrane
This self-adhesive gas resistant membrane from Premseal is a tough, self-adhesive sheet designed for gas proofing. It is primarily used as an external tanking membrane when waterproofing below ground structures. It should be used in conjunction with PermaSEAL 8 Geodrain Membrane.
It can also be used as a tanking membrane or damp proof membrane in vertical and horizontal applications.
The membrane is constructed from an aluminium / polythene laminate that is coated on one surface with a layer of self-adhesive polymer modified bitumen. This durable gas-resistant self-adhesive membrane has an overall thickness of 1mm.
Applications for self-adhesive gas membrane
The membrane is suitable in the following situations:
- landfill sites
- radon-affected areas
- redeveloped contaminated sites e.g. town gasworks and tunnels
Installing a self-adhesive gas resistant membrane (H3)
Start by ensuring that all vertical surfaces on which you are installing the membrane are free of loose mortar and dust. They need to have a smooth finish. Brickwork and blockwork should be dry and pointed or rendered.
It is advisable to seal the surface with our Self Adhesive Tanking Primer which must dry thoroughly prior to installation. Pressure must be applied to the entire surface of the membrane on installation to ensure good adhesion. All laps and joints must be a minimum of 150mm and rolled to ensure a continuous watertight bond.
Protection boards or PermaSEAL 8 Geo Drain Membrane should be used when installed externally to protect the membrane from damage during backfilling. Premseal GMA Self-Adhesive Gas Resistant Membrane should not be applied in temperatures below 5 degrees, or in wet or misty conditions.
