Wakaflex Installation Procedure

  • Form Wakaflex to basic shape required before removing the backing strip.
  • Turn Wakaflex over, retaining basic shape.
  • Remove the first plastic backing strip.
  • Place Wakaflex into required position and dress into the profile of roofing material using hands..
  • Lift Wakaflex slightly and remove remaining plastic backing strips.
  • Wakaflex MUST always be chased or built into brickwork or ‘over-flashed’.
  • Wakaflex must be firmly dressed down to the substructure it covers to ensure there is no cavity or airspace beneath it.
  • Wakaflex should always be protected after installation until all construction works in the area are completed (i.e. render, painting etc) in order to protect the surface.
  • Painting if required should be carried out after Wakaflex has been formed and fixed to roof profile. Water based outdoor acrylic should be used.
  • Wakaflex should be installed vertically for step flashing with a horizontal Wakaflex soaker. Abutment flashings should also be installed horizontally.
  • For further information regarding the installation of Wakaflex please call the distributor, Evo Building Products on 02 9666 1069.
  • Overlap/Joining – Wakaflex should be overlapped by 30mm on all joints. Pressure should be applied by hand to ensure a good seal. The pieces will permanently bond together in 20-30 minutes.
