ARDEX WPM 3000X (Shelterseal 3000X Self Adhesive Membrane) is a peel and stick bituminous/asphalt membrane protected by a cross laminated high-density polyethylene film.
ARDEX WPM 3000X is made from two structural components. Bitumen/asphalt compound modified with SBS and high tack resins
This special compound has been formulated to make the product easy to install. The membrane can be adjusted should it initially be placed in the wrong position as the adhesive on the sheet achieves final adhesion only after a few minutes.
This is hot-laminated to the bituminous/asphalt compound and gives the membrane its mechanical and physical characteristics such as heat stability shape chemical resistance etc.

The protective polymer film is highly resistant to acids
alkalis and other pollutants.
Flexibility and adaptability
This membrane will adapt easily to irregularly shaped
surfaces and will stretch without breaking or cracking.
The membrane self seals on contact maintaining its
The membrane is manufactured using high-tech machinery
which constantly monitors its thickness and ensures that
the films and synthetic materials are manufactured to the
highest specifications and quality control requirements.

BASIC APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Surfaces to which the ARDEX WPM 3000X is to be installed
must be properly prepared prior to installation. All surfaces
must be clean dry smooth free of sharp edges loose or
foreign materials oil grease and other materials that may
damage the membrane. If concrete has moisture on
surface use gas torch to dry and warm before priming
apply one coat of ARDEX WPM 300 at a coverage rate
of 3.0m2 per L and allow to cure for at least 3 days prior
Prior to the application of the membrane all prepared
surfaces (except polystyrene blocks) should be primed
with ARDEX WPM 249 (Shelterseal Primer) at a rate of
56m2 per litre and allowed to dry.
Application of ARDEX WPM 3000X
ARDEX WPM 3000X should always be applied from the
lowest point to enable laps to shed water. All edge and end
laps must be overlapped a minimum of 60mm. Internal and
external corners shall be reinforced with an extra layer of
membrane 300mm wide. All end laps and exposed edges
should be sealed. On vertical surfaces the installation
should start at the lowest point with the joints overlapping
by at least 100mm and formed so that they will shed
water. All rolls of ARDEX WPM 3000X are marked with a
60mm line for overlapping.
Ensure that the membrane is properly adhered to the
surface at perimeters or around penetrations.
On completion of the installation of ARDEX WPM 3000X it
is recommended that a protection board be used before
back filling to protect the membrane from damage.
Under no circumstances should the membrane be left
exposed to UV light for long periods.
Two Layer DPC System
In critical areas a specifier may require a second layer
of ARDEX WPM 3000X to be applied with laps staggered
to the first layer.
ARDEX WPM 3000X should be installed by approved
applicators well trained in the application of self-adhesive
membranes. Installation shall be strictly in accordance
with ARDEX recommendations.
ARDEX WPM 3000X is hazardous; non-dangerous goods.
Wear eye/face protection. Use only in well ventilated
areas. Keep rolls in well ventilated place. In case of
contact with eyes rinse with plenty of water and contact a
doctor or Poisons Information Centre.
ARDEX WPM 249 is hazardous; non-dangerous goods. It is
highly flammable harmful if swallowed and irritating to the
eys and skin. Keep away from sources of ignition. No
smoking. Keep container tightly closed and in a well

FOUND IN THE MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET.
All rolls of ARDEX WPM 3000X whether palletised or
loose should be stored in a cool covered area protected
against sunlight and UV radiation. Rolls should be stored in
a vertical position on a smooth floor so as not to damage
