...no chance for pressurised water

FUMAX® type G

*General German building authority test certificate (in German)

Application:
Waterproofing horizontal and vertical construction joints

Features:
  • FUMAX® type Gis an elastic strip made from polyolefin rubber and resin that swells on contact with water
  • Swells on contact with water
  • Sealing effect created by exertion of pressure as volume increases
  • Delayed activation
  • Drying of strip reverses swelling
  • Can be used in initially saturated areas
  • Outstanding mechanical properties of swollen strip
  • Very good chemical resistance
  • Highly suitable for precast concrete parts
  • Suitable for joints in cast-in-place and precast concrete parts
Laying/fixing:
  • Discs and pins
  • Glued with BETOFIX
  • On uneven surfaces with Betoquell levelling paste
Notes on installation:
  • The laying surface must be flat and free from dirt, grease, oil, loose particles and standing water
  • FUMAX® islaid in the centre of the construction joint (min. spacing 8 cm)
  • The ends of the strips must meet without overlapping
  • Attach with discs and pins
  • Pin spacing 15 cm acc. to DBV
  • Betoquell for gluing and for levelling uneven surfaces

FUMAX® type S

*General German building authority test certificate (in German)

Application:
Waterproofing horizontal and vertical construction joints

Features:
  • Natural bentonite swelling strip produced from calcium bentonite
  • Swells on contact with water
  • Sealing effect created by exertion of pressure as volume increases
  • Almost immediate activation
Laying/fixing:
  • Fixing rails with clamps and cap-head bolts/impact plugs
  • Fixing lattice with discs and pins
  • Glued with contact adhesive or BETOFIX
  • On uneven surfaces with Betoquell levelling paste
Notes on installation:
  • The laying surface must be flat, dry and free from dirt, grease, oil and loose particles
  • FUMAX® is laid in the centre of the construction joint (min. spacing 8 cm).
  • The ends of the strips must meet without overlapping
  • Attach fixing rail and secure with a clamp and cap-head bolts or impact plugs with spacing of approx. 15 cm
  • Locate fixing lattice and attach the disc with a pin
  • Betoquell for gluing and for levelling uneven surfaces
