Aqua4ma Solvent Weld is a fundemental part of the Aqua4ma wet room system. Aqua4ma joints are solvent welded together with Aqua4ma Solvent Weld to provide a one-piece permanent waterproof barrier that is guaranteed for life.
Once Aqua4ma Panels and Shower Decks have been fitted, the screw holes and joins between panels be easily filled and flushed out with solvent weld.
Solvent Weld will fully cure within 1 hour ready for sanding. And then you’re ready to apply microcement.
• Quick and easy to install
• Suitable for microcement
• Compatible with Aqua4ma floor and wall panels for a total wet room installation
• Approx consumption: 1 x 300ml Solvent Weld per 10 linear metres

For a more detailed breakdown of the steps involved, please see the installation guide and step by steps:
It’s always advisable to recruit a qualified plumber to complete the 1st and 2nd fix waste install. They may also be able to fit Aqua4ma panels for you. Alternatively a plasterer or joiner can help.
Because eliminating the chance of movement is fundemental to a successful install, it’s probably advisalbe to recruit a skilled tradesperson to complete the install of the Kudos Aqua4ma system.
As soon as your tile adhesive and solvent weld is set, you can start the microcement process.
Aqua4ma decks can be fitted to wooden floors or concrete, here’s a little more information on the processes involved:
Fitting to wooden floor at joist level
Aqua4ma Evolution shower decks can be fitted to joist level, provided that a false floor is created. The deck can then be secured to the wooden floor using screws. The existing floor level can be raised to the same level as the deck for tiling by using either Aqua4ma panels (for a fully watertight floor), or plywood.
Direct to wooden floor
Aqua4ma Evolution shower decks can be fitted directly to existing floors and secured using screws. To achieve level access, the floor needs to be raised to the level of the deck, for a fully waterproof floor we recommend using 18mm plywood & a 7mm Aqua4ma panel. Aqua4ma panels should be welded together using Aqua4ma solvent weld paste.
Fitting directly to a solid (concrete) floor
Aqua4ma Evolution decks can be fitted directly to solid (concrete) floors. Once a channel has been cut out for the waste outlet the deck can be secured to the solid floor using a flexible tile adhesive.
