Conditions and limitations
The CCMC’s compliance opinion is bound by this product being used in accordance with the conditions and limitations set out below.
- The product can be used as a membrane that is fully adhered to a continuous solid substrate, such as a plywood or concrete deck and balconies that are subject to light pedestrian traffic.
- The product must be used only in conjunction with plywood or concrete substrates. The membrane must be fully adhered to the substrate with adhesives WD-1000 (on concrete or plywood substrates) or WD-7633 (on plywood substrates only) and applied as per the installation manual.
- The product is limited for use in areas that are subject to traffic loads generated by residential occupancies only.
- The product must not be exposed to chemical attack or spillage. In situations where extended contact with chemicals or pollutants may occur, the suitability of the product must be determined.
- Any physical or chemical damage to the membrane must be repaired in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. The product must not be installed with butt seam joints.
- The product is limited for use where the roof or deck surface has a minimum slope of 1:48.
- Joints must be shingle-lapped in order to shed water.
- The product must be installed by approved applicators only and in strict conformance with the manufacturer’s installation instructions.
- The product or its packaging must be identified with the manufacturer’s name or logo and the phrase “CCMC 13606-R.”
This evaluation is based on demonstrated conformance with the following criteria:
