RESIFLEX® SK & 3D
RESIFLEX® SK is a self-adhesive, bitumen-compatible expansion joint sealing tape with a synthetic rubber (EPDM) base and has a reinforced glass fabric liner in the outer edge areas. RESIFLEX® SK is not reinforced within the expansion zone. The underside has a self-adhesive, polymer-modified layer of bitumen that is protected by a detachable release film.
We have managed to create a unique product further development for the special challenges encountered within cross joints and T-joints: the reinforcement-free RESIFLEX® 3D moulded part.
RESIFLEX® SK’s areas of application
RESIFLEX® SK can be installed for the formation of expansion joints that are not exposed to pressurised water within the following waterproofing solutions:
Waterproofing of roofs and of balconies, walkways and arcades according to DIN 18531
Waterproofing of concrete areas trafficable by vehicles according to DIN 18532 (except for waterproofing of bridges)
Waterproofing components in contact with the ground according to DIN 18533
RESIFLEX® SK can be used for joint types I and II.
RESIFLEX® SK can be used for all deformation classes (VC 1 to VC 5).
RESIFLEX® SK can be combined with surface waterproofing of all RESITRIX® types and with the RESIFLEX® 3D supplementary moulded part.
RESIFLEX® SK can also be used in transition areas from horizontal to vertical joints and arranged within groove areas. Within cross joints and T-joints, laying takes place in combination with the reinforcement-free RESIFLEX® 3D moulded part.
RESIFLEX® SK can also be connected to bituminous vapour barrier membranes and to the ALUTRIX® 600 / ALUTRIX® FR self-adhesive aluminium vapour barrier membranes within thermally insulated layer structures.
Information for forming cross joints and T-joints
Formation takes place by additionally arranging the reinforcement-free RESIFLEX® 3D moulded part. The moulded part is fixed in a centred position first of all using a cross joint or a T-joint. The RESIFLEX® SK joint sealing tape is then connected to RESIFLEX® 3D in such a way that it becomes water-tight using the hot-air welding process.
