Description

Product Description:
GE Elemax SS Flashing is made up of a flexible 2 mil sheet of type 304 stainless steel, 8 mils of butyl adhesive and a siliconized release liner. GE Elemax SS Flashing membrane offers exceptional puncture and tear resistance, and provides broad installation and in service temperature range.

Key Features and Typical Benefits:
• Cost Effective—Simple primerless application and the potential elimination of stainless steel drip edge allows for optimization of material and installation costs.
• Compatibility—Compatible with GE Elemax 2600 AWB coating, GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing as well as a majority of sealants, insulations, below grade waterproofing and roofing membranes.
• Durable—304 Stainless steel sheet facer and butyl adhesive offers excellent resistance to puncture, tear, and UV.
• Sustainable—Manufactured from 60% recycled stainless steel.
• LEED Credits—Contributes towards LEED: EA Credit 1 (optimize energy performance) and EQ Credit 4.1 (low emitting materials).
• Simple Installation—Primerless application to most substrates, strongly bonding to many typical substrates including glass mat faced gypsum sheathing, masonry, concrete, metals, plywood and OSB

Potential Applications:
GE Elemax SS Flashing is an excellent product to consider for use as through wall flashing, transition membrane, detail flashing, curtain wall perimeter flashing, window and door pan, jamb closure flashing and roof to parapet  flashing.
NOTE: GE Elemax SS Flashing membrane should not be considered for:
• Below grade applications.
• Wet, damp, frozen, dirty, or contaminated surfaces.
• Contact with materials that contain high plasticizer contents.

Installation:
Installation Temperatures:
The Elemax SS Flashing membrane can be applied under most seasonal conditions including during colder months. Substrates must be clean, dry and frost free. Application may proceed under colder conditions as low as 20°F (-7°C) as long as the material is applied to a dry substrate.

Surface Preparation:
• All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of contaminants that may interfere with proper bonding of the membrane.
• Where necessary, clean loose mortar and other contamination on masonry with a wire brush or similar abrasion to provide a stable, clean, and dust-free surface for application.
• Ensure there are no slopes that will form pockets or prevent a proper drainage plane. Ensure all work is completed in accordance with accepted trade practices.

Application:
• Cut the desired length of the GE Elemax SS Flashing membrane and remove release liner.
• Position membrane in place and apply firm pressure with a vinyl or steel roller avoiding blisters and wrinkles.
• Overlap all joints a minimum of 2” (50 mm).

Through Wall Flashing:
• Install in accordance with accepted industry trade practices and/or as depicted in project specifications and details.
• Extend flashing 6” (152 mm) minimum beyond opening. Fold flashing ends at end of openings or horizontal flashing terminations to form an end dam.
• Flashing height must be at least 2” (50mm) above the lintel, extend through the cavity and terminate at the outside face of the exterior wall.
• Splice end joints by overlapping them a minimum of 2” (50 mm) and seal with GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing.

Masonry back up:
• Surface apply GE Elemax SS Flashing before or after installation of GE Elemax 2600 AWB coating.
• Fasten to masonry back-up surface at top by embedding in layer of uncured GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing troweled smooth at minimum 30 mils thick x 1” (25 mm) width ensuring a water and air tight seal is achieved or use a noncorrosive termination bar and fasten it to the backer wall at the top edge of the flashing and seal with GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing. A termination clamp embedded in the block backup wall may also be utilized.

Concrete back up:
• Surface apply before or after installation of GE Elemax 2600 AWB coating.
• Fasten to concrete surface at top by embedding in layer of uncured GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing troweled smooth at a minimum 30 mils thick x 1” (25 mm) ensuring a water and air tight seal is achieved or use a non-corrosive termination bar and fasten it to the backer wall at the top edge of the flashing and seal with GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing.

Stud back up with sheathing:
• Surface apply before or after installation of GE Elemax 2600 AWB coating.
• Fasten to stud back up wall at top by embedding in layer of uncured GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing troweled smooth at a minimum 30 mils thick x 1” (25 mm) ensuring a water and air tight seal is achieved or use a non-corrosive termination bar and fasten it to the backer wall at the top edge of the flashing and seal with GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing.
• At the end of openings fold ends of flashing to form dam; seal with GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing.
• Inside and outside corners: Make in accordance with industry accepted standards utilizing corner and splice material.
• Use stainless steel or copper drip edge in any location that the underside of the flashing will be exposed and/or if deemed necessary by a design professional.
• Flashing should be covered as soon as possible to avoid damage from different trades, the environment and falling debris. Contact Momentive Performance Materials, Inc. Technical Service for repair procedures if damage occurs.
• Primer: Not necessary in most applications, when applied to a clean dry surface. Job site adhesion tests should be performed to ensure appropriate adhesion. On surfaces that need additional adhesion, prime surface with solvent or emulsion base primer. Allow primer to dry completely before installing GE Elemax SS Flashing membrane.

Handling and Storage:
• Store Elemax SS Flashing membrane between 20°F – 110°F (-7°C – 43°C) and in dry conditions.
• Do not double stack pallets.
• Wearing gloves while handling is recommended for protection from sharp edges.
