NOTE 1 Bond breakers for Class I membranes (low extensibility) allow the membrane to flex rather than stretch.
NOTE 2 Bond breakers for Class II membranes (medium extensibility) allow the membrane to stretch. If a tape is used as a bond breaker, either the membrane will not bond to the tape or the tape will have elastic properties similar to the membrane.
NOTE 3 Bond breakers for Class III membranes (high extensibility) allow the membrane to have even thickness.
As always, it's essential to refer to the product manufacturer's Technical Data Sheet. This ensures that the fillet/bond breaker sizes are suitable for the membrane system and meet the minimum requirements stipulated by the Australian standards.
In addition to its primary function, the Reach Blade III enables you to ensure compliance with the AS 3740 standards by measuring the vertical membrane termination to the perimeter flashing is correctly positioned 150mm above the structural floor level or 25mm above the finished floor level plus much more!
