TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Mapegum WPS is a ready-to-use, solvent-free, one-component, grey-coloured paste with a base of synthetic resins in water dispersion.

Mapegum WPS has a thixotropic consistency which makes it easy to apply on horizontal, sloping and vertical surfaces. After rapid evaporation of the water content, Mapegum WPS forms a flexible membrane which is not sticky and which is strong enough to withstand light pedestrian traffic. It also forms an excellent surface which bonds perfectly to adhesives used for laying ceramics, marble and natural stone.

The flexibility of Mapegum WPS enables it to withstand normal expansion and contraction movements of the substrate due to temperature variations and vibrations. Thanks to the flexibility of Mapegum WPS, it acts as an anti-fracture membrane for substrates which are subject to light cracking (< 1 mm). Mapegum WPS is resistant to water, limewater (pH > 12), water which contains chlorides and normal household detergents and cleaning products.

Systems based on the use of Mapegum WPS flexible membrane, on which various types of tiles have been laid using MAPEI cementitious-based adhesives (such as Granirapid, Keraflex and Adesilex P9) and water dispersion adhesives (Ultramastic III), have been certified for use in damp environments by the following institutes:

  • Säurefliesner (Germany)
  • Sp Swedish National Testing & Research Institute (Sweden)
  • Norwegian Research and Building Institute (Norway)

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Do not apply Mapegum WPS if the temperature is lower than +5°C.
  • Create sloping surfaces where necessary to avoid the formation of puddles of water.
  • Do not apply Mapegum WPS on damp cementitious substrates or on substrates which are subject to rising damp.
  • Do not apply Mapegum WPS on bitumen or asphalt membranes which could bleed oil or plasticizers.
  • Do not use Mapegum WPS on surfaces continuously immersed in liquid such as swimming pools, fountains, storage tanks, etc. Use Mapelastic or Mapelastic Smart for these types of application.
  • Do not use Mapegum WPS to cover cracks which are subject to shearing movements.
  • Mapegum WPS must be protected from abrasion caused by pedestrian traffic by installing ceramic tiles or stone material.

Vehicle Size & Access

7.5 TONNE TRUCK

18 TONNE TRUCK

The best way to determine if a lorry can access your home/business address is whether you have a bin vehicle collecting from outside your premises.

Wide enough access - to accept large delivery lorries (minimum 2.8m)

No obstacles - free of obstacles that could obstruct delivery (e.g. low hanging tree branches)

No Inclines - the delivery area should be flat, rather than a steep slope

Hard & level surface - hand pallet trucks only operate on hard flat surfaces, not loose ground such as grass or gravel

Turning space - ample room to manoeuvre and position the lorry

You MUST advise if there are any parking or time restrictions at the delivery point.
