Aquamox is eco-friendly in house building today and not only will save you money with its efficient insulation barrier, but also reflects
the heat upwards into the room instead of allowing heat loss down through the sub-floor or through the walls. In most cases Aquamox exceeds
the requirements of the NZ Building Code (Energy Efficiency H1 table 6 for heated floors).
Aquamox is glued and screwed directly onto the timber walls, whereas on concrete or wooden floor applications for shower bases, it is fixed onto the floor pad using a flexible adhesive.
Aquamox may also be installed in situ before the concrete floor is poured allowing the builder to pour the floor up to, around and underneath the pre-formed shower tray thus having an accurate level to screed off.
Aquamox tiled shower trays and wall linings are completely waterproof. They are quick and easy to install and when used with the specified
waste systems in the range and with any BRANZ approved waterproofing membrane Aquamox is guaranteed not to leak.

Aquamox can be easily joined by laying a bead of polyurethane sealant along the edge of each board edge. When theadjacent board is butted up and so long as the joint is done clean, continuous and adheres correctly, the joint is made instantly waterproof.
Solvent-based adhesives must NOT be used as these will damage to the Aquamox board.
