The HydroHALT Strip is the foundation of the HydroHALT Sealing System and is supplied in with a backer rod attached as in PlumBud , or without an attached backer rod as in TileBud

The Sealant Backer Rod may be either a close celled adhesive backed 6mm x 12mm foam material if HydroHALT is being installed during installation of a shower tray or bath or bath (as with PlumBud), or a 7mm round backer rod if HydroHALT is being retrospectively installed into an existing joint after installation of a shower tray or bath (as with TileBud).

Sealux-N Sealant Adhesive is a neutral curing sanitary sealant adhesive tested and approved for installation with the HydroHALT Sealing System. Sealux-N is highly elastic and capable of tenacious adhesion to the red fleece free surface of the HydroHALT strip. Sealux-N conforms to EN 15651-1: F-EXT-INT-CC 25LM, EN 15651-2: G-CC 25LM, EN 15651-3: S XS2.

The Wall Adhesive Spatula is serrated on one side for spreading Sealux-N on the wall as an adhesive bed for the HydroHALT strip while the opposite side has a straight edge for pressing the HydroHALT strip into the Sealux-N adhesive bed.

The Joint Sealant & Wall Adhesive Spatula is serrated on one side for spreading Sealux-N adhesive on the wall, the straight sides are for pressing the HydroHALT strip into the Sealux-N adhesive bed. The small splayed corner is for rubbing up Sealux-N applied into the joint between the HydroHALT strip and a shower tray or bath sidewall while the large splayed angle is to accommodate a sealant fillet when HydroHALT is installed over a ledge built into a wall in a retro-fit installation.

The Surface Cleaning Tissues are saturated in 100% isopropyl alcohol to ensure a clean surface to enhance a strong Sealux-N bond with the shower tray or bath side wall.

The Backer Rod Alignment Guide enables installers to bond the backer rod to the shower tray or bath sidewall in the correct position.

The Backer Rod Insertion Wheel is a stepped wheel that provides an easy means of inserting 7mm round backer rod a depth of 5mm inside the joint between the strip and the sidewall of a shower tray or bath in a retro-fit installation.
