Flexi-Bund Installation Kits

For "Do It Yourself" installation we recommend that you purchase one of our installation kits. Our kit includes:

1. Tubes of special adhesive per 5, 10 or 15 metres of Flex-Bund
2. A surface cleaner/bonding agent
3. A line marker
4. An adhesive cartridge dispenser

Tools Required

Measuring tape, fine tooth saw (hacksaw is suitable)

Installation Instructions

 1.Roll out Flexi-Bund at least 2 hours before installation to remove any depressions in the material.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.Apply degreaser diluted with water 20 parts to 1 with a broom or mop to all floor surfaces to which the Flexi-Bund is to be installed. Floor surfaces must be clean, dry and free of oil or grease.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.Rinse floor area with water, then mop or scrape areas containing residual oil or grease.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.Once the surface is completely dry, accurately measure the length of Flexi-Bund required and carefully cut to size using a fine tooth saw or sharp blade.

 

 

 

 

5.Mark a straight line on the floor along the edge of the proposed line of Flexi-Bund.

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.Lay Flexi-Bund along the line, exposing the continuous slots along the base of the Flexi-Bund.

 

 

 

 

 

 7.Apply the Cleaner product contained in your installation kit to the underside surfaces very thinly with a clean polishing cloth or tissue, NOT BRUSH, changing the cloth frequently. Allow a minimum of 10 minutes to dry and a maximum of 30 minutes. Refer Cleaner product instructions.

 

 

 

 

8.Apply a continuous bead of adhesive into the two outside slots for the full length and a small amount in the two middle slots every metre of Flexi-Bund to be installed. Ensure that sufficient adhesive is applied to overfill each slot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9.Carefully lay the Flexi-Bund over against the straight line and apply downward pressure to ensure floor contact with adhesive until the full length is installed. The best method is to slowly walk "heel to toe" along the bunding ensuring maximum floor contact.

 

 

 

 

10.If Flexi-Bund is installed to abut a wall, carefully apply adhesive to the joint to ensure a waterproof seal between the wall and Flexi-Bund.

 

 

 

 

Important Information

1. Flexi-Bund should not be installed on a concrete lip or step edge where tyres may "drag" the bunding forward. Consider laying the material on a flat area back from edges or lips for effective use.


2. Cleaner product contained in your installation kit. Should the maximum sealant time be exceeded, or if the Cleaner is contaminated by dust or rain etc, wipe the surface and repeat the application. Refer Cleaner instructions.


3. If the floor is not completely dry, adhesive may not adhere effectively.


4. Clean, smooth bends may be formed with Flexi-Bund to 90 degrees, for corners or around work areas. A minimum arc of at least 1 metre is required. To create a bend, lay the Flexi-Bund on the floor and place a weight on the material at a point before the required bend. Carefully form the bend ensuring that the Flexi-Bund does not gather or lift at any point, place a weight on the Flexi-Bund at the other end of the bend. Once the bend is formed, mark a line along the dge of the Flexi Bund to assist in aligning once adhesive has been applied.


5. Flexi-Bund must not be exposed to traffic for 24 hours after application. If it is necessary for vehicles to cross Flexi-Bund within 24 hours of installation, place a ramp over the required traffic section or position a length of timber on either side of the Flexi-Bund to protect the adhesive from being disturbed.


6. Installed as per instructions, Flexi-Bund will provide effective trafficable, bund barrier impervious to most oils, greases, detergents and chemicals.


7. Surface ripples may be present when first unrolling Flexi-Bund, but will eventually smooth after the material is installed.
