duseal ps 250

Technical Data Sheet

DUSEAL PS 250 is a special SBS- modified self-adhesive protection membrane incorporating a surface reinforcement of tough, heavy-duty spun bond non–woven polyester mat. DUSEAL PS 250 is specially designed for use as protection sheet over other membrane in a wide variety of applications. The bottom surface is covered with siliconized release paper or foil. The DUSEAL range belongs to the Elastoseal group of membranes produced using a special grade of bitumen modified with virgin SBS polymer. The polymer-rich mixture is used to saturate and to coat both sides of glass fiber mat to the required thickness of the membrane.

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Ease of application over existing membranes
  • Excellent bond to self adhesive and torch on membranes with foil finish
  • High tear strength and puncture resistance.
  • Conforms to difficult contours and shapes
  • High dimensional stability
  • Resistant to UV and to chemicals found in soil and ground water.

USES

DUSEAL PS 250 is designed for use as a protection sheet over waterproofing membranes (e.g. DUSEAL FP ) where traditional protection boards prove difficult to install, such as

  • Foundations
  • Manholes, pipes and the like
  • Tunnels, trenches and ducts
  • Any structure where shape conformity is important.

METHOD OF APPLICATION

The substrate to be waterproofed / protected should be dry, smooth, and free from dust, dirt, oil, protrusions and cavities. The concrete or metal surface should be primed thoroughly with DUPRIME -Duproof Primer and allow to dry. The drying time depends on the porosity of the substrate and the environmental conditions (approx. 0.5 – 3 hrs.)Install DUSEAL PS 250 by removing the release foil and unrolling the membrane along with it. The membrane especially at the overlaps should be firmly pressed down from the center to the sides, to ensure a good seal and to remove entrapped air. Allow end lap of 150 mm and side laps of 100 mm or as per code of practice and ensure complete sealing.DUSEAL PS 250 in general can be adhered to various types of substrate (concrete, concrete blocks, bricks, foam concrete, fiber cement board, wood boards and metal substrates) by removing the silicon-based foil from the bottom side. When applied over DUSEAL CXL or DUSEAL FP or DUWRAP tapes ensure the adhering surface is free of dust, grease, oily nature or water to achieve good bonding.

PACKING & STORAGE

DUSEAL PS 250 membranes are supplied in rolls 1 m x 15 m; shrink wrapped on pallets. Keep rolls upright on pallets under shade. DUSEAL PS 250 pallets should not be stacked one over the other.

HEALTH & SAFETY

There are no direct health hazards associated with DUSEAL membranes. Normal precautions for hot and volatile substances should be observed during application. Refer to our MSDS sheets for advice.
