Mapetex Sel

Application

Reinforcement in macro-holed polypropylene fabric to be used together with Mapelastic and Mapelastic Smart, flexible cementitious membranes for waterproofing and protecting new concrete surfaces, or those repaired using products from the Mapegrout or Planitop range of products, and concrete units particularly subject to large deformations and therefore at risk of cracking. Mapetex Sel may also be used together with Mapegum WPS, a fast drying liquid membrane for internal waterproofing applications.

Description

Mapetex Sel is a macro-holed non-woven fabric, whose structure has a series of 1 mm diameter holes making it completely permeable to water and enhances the bond between the first and second layer of the flexible waterproof membrane in which it is embedded. It is made up of continuous, synthetic polypropylene fibres joined together with a mechanical needlepunch procedure.

Advantages:

  • Remains unaltered and is resistant to alkalis contained in cement.
  • Resistant to atmospheric agents.
  • Dimensionally stable.
  • Light and easy to handle.
  • Easy to cut.
