Creating a Seam with 3” Quickseam Splice Tape in your Pond Liner
Step 1 -
Ensure the liner is dry and free of mud or other contaminants.
Step 2 -
Overlap the adjacent PondGard panels by a minimum of 4”. Allow the PondGard panels to relax for 15 minutes.
Step 3 -
Mark the overlap with a white marker to ensure the PondGard returns to this placement after priming.
Step 4 -
Tack-back the overlap of the top PondGard panel using QuickPrime as an adhesive.
Step 5 -
Using a scrubber pad and holder; apply the QuickPrime Plus primer to the bottom surface of the top PondGard panel and the top surface edge of the bottom PondGard panel.
Step 6 -
Adhere the 3” QuickSeam Splice Tape to the primed surface of the bottom PondGard panel.
Step 7 -
Check the QuickSeam Splice Tape alignment to avoid “fish mouths” or folds in the tape.
Step 8 -
Expose 1/4” to 1/8” of the tape outside the overlap.
Step 9 -
Remove the release paper and allow the top PondGard panel to fall across the tape while pulling the release paper away at a 45° angle.
Step 10 -
Use a broom to brush over the splice to solidify the adhesion.
Step 11 -
Using a hand or stand-up roller; roll the seam longitudinally and across the seam in overlapping sections to mate the seam together.
Step 12 -
Using a compressed air source, test all bonded seams using a minimum 50 p.s.i. air supply directed through a 3/16” nozzle held within 2” of the seam edge.
Note: do not exceed 75 p.s.i. or it may cause damage to the seam.
