How To Use

Installation
When using Gripset Betta Reinforcing Fabric cut to length with blade or scissors and prepare to position. A liberal coating of the Gripset Betta membrane is applied over the area to be treated and while in a wet state, Gripset Betta Reinforcing Fabric is embedded and wetted into the coat. A flat spatula or stiff brush should be used to remove any air pockets or creases. Subsequent coats of membrane should ensure the Gripset Betta Reinforcing Fabric is totally covered and not visible.

Tips
Fabric must be bedded into a wet coat of membrane

  • Ensure fabric is fully wetted into the coat of membrane
  • When applied correctly excess membrane will seep through the face of the fabric
  • Live cracks, flexing joints or movement junctions should be sealed with Gripset Betta Elastic Joint Band or Peel & Seal Tape
