Step 1

All surfaces must be clean, sound, dry and properly cured. Use a wire brush to remove any dirt or loose materials. If necessary repair any blowholes or voids using an appropriate Sika product. Metal surfaces should be rust free and should be treated with suitable Red etch primer prior to the application of the RainTite® Kit.

Step 2

Applying first coat of Sika RainTite Kit

Apply a generous base coat of the RainTite® Waterproofing Compound by brush or roller. Ensure all necessary areas are well coated.

Step 3

While it is still wet, embed the Sika RainTite® Membrane into the base coat, smoothing out air pockets and creases. Ensure that the overlaps of adjacent membrane overlap by a minimum of 50mm.
