ARDEX Damp Proof Tanking System

ARDEX WPM 3000X (Shelterseal HD) is a self-adhesive bituminous waterproofing membrane which is self-protected by a cross-laminated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) film. The HDPE film gives the membrane high dimensional stability and elongation properties suited to below-ground stresses. The bituminous compound gives the membrane its mechanical and physical characteristic, such as high heat stability, shape and chemical resistance.
