Tape for sealing joints, joints of reinforced concrete structures
BasicElast® is an elastic-plastic tape for sealing joints, which serves to seal joints of reinforced concrete structures.BasicElast® is applied to the joint directly from the roll with a protective layer up and pressed tightly along the entire length. Before pressing, the sealing tape in the corners must be bent to the desired shape. To extend the BasicElast® tape, cut the ends at an angle (from 30° to 45°) so that they are connected on top of each other after pressing, without increasing the cross-section of the tape at the junction. For cutting, we recommend a sharp knife (the knife should cut, not press). Before installing the next element, remove the protective strip and make sure that the sealing tape is securely and without displacement in the desired position. Immediately after that, press the next part to the sealing tape in the joint area for gluing. For weak water pressure (for example, accumulating infiltration water), compression of the sealing tape by about 60% is sufficient. To achieve the full sealing effect of BasicElast®, it is necessary to ensure compression of the sealing tape during installation at each joint point by 70-90% of its original height. The joint can be checked for tightness and exposed to water immediately after assembly.
