Substrate Preparation:

Ensure the surface is clean, free of dust, loose foreign matter and debris. Surfaces must be free of oil, wax or grease residues. Wiping over with alcohol based cleaner is recommended so optimum adhesion can be achieved. If applying over dusty concrete, masonry surfaces, prime first with Cemix® primer to stabilise surface.

Application:

Unroll the Cemix® Safeguard 180 Peel and Seal Tape and measure the required length. Cut the tape using scissors or a sharp cutter knife. Place roll over the area to be sealed and while slowly unwinding, remove release paper and position the tacky side directly over the area to be sealed. For best results, remove release paper as the tape is being unrolled and adhered into position. It is not recommended to remove total length of release paper before adhering into position. Press tape into position with a spatula, roller, or cloth, ensuring air pockets and creases are pushed out and removed. Finishes can be applied immediately after the tape is in place. It is recommended to apply one of the Cemix® membranes waterproofing Cemix® Safeguard 180 Peel and Seal Tape directly over the tape surface.
