applications, including balconies, bathroom floors and shower bases, in both bonded and un-bonded screed applications.
Bond Breaker tape can be used for going over Junctions and Joints prior to waterproofing, At junctions in building surfaces and over cracks place a bond breaker tape.
Apply a 150mm wide thick coat of waterproofing membrane centrally over areas where the bond breaker is applied.
