Surface Preparation

All surfaces to receive Icopal SSI Membrane Spray Adhesive must
be clean, dry and free of dust, grease and oil and anything that may affect the adhesion and performance of the adhesive.

The surface, on or against which adhesive is to be applied, shall be clean, smooth, dry, free of fins, sharp edges, loose and foreign materials, oil and grease. Depressions greater than 6 mm should be feathered, using epoxy, mortar or other approved patching material.

Important Note: The adhesive is not compatible with expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation boards.


Please refer to the ‘Technical Data’ section regarding application temperatures. Icopal SSI Membrane Spray Adhesive is a moisture cure product and any moisture present in the air will speed up the curing process. On initial use, or if the canister has been standing for more than 12 hours, shake the canister from side to side for 30 seconds.

For full connection and application instructions consult the supplied application guide.

Once connected and engaged do not turn off the canister or hose valves again until the canister is empty are changing to a new canister, or you are finished and want to clean the gun and hose.

The adhesive is applied by spray application using a spray gun. During application keep the tip of the lance approximately 250 mm above the substrate.

Note: the adhesive is not suitable for use in detail work.

Position the waterproofing membrane. Spray an even coat of adhesive to the substrate only to cover 100% of the surface, moving side to side in an advancing manner. The application will result in a ‘splatter’ spray.

Note: Leave the adhesive open for 3–5 minutes for the adhesive to become tacky.

Roll the membrane into the adhesive coated substrate avoiding wrinkles in the sheet. Immediately roll with a weighted roller or broom to achieve maximum contact and a smooth, flat finish without air pockets. It may be necessary to roll the membrane again to achieve maximum contact.
