ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International

Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies

casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

6 Marking and labelling

Products complying with the requirements of this ISO Standard shall be clearly marked with the

following information:
a) name of the product;
b) manufacturer’s mark and place of origin;
c) date or code of production, shelf life and conditions of storage;
d) number of this ISO Standard, i.e. ISO 13007-6, and date of issue;
e) type of product according to Clause 6 (using symbols given in Clause 6);
f) instructions for use:
— substrate bonding materials required to adhere sheet membrane to substrate
— mode of application (including recommended primer and/or surface preparation);
— minimum quantity or thickness of the adhesive product
— maturing time for initial membrane bonding to substrate (where applicable);
— delay for installing ceramic tiles;
— suitable tile adhesive(s), type and class in accordance with ISO 13007-1;
— field of application (internal, external, wall, floor etc.)

NOTE 1 In the designation of a sheet waterproofing membrane, information about special properties may

be included when the product is intended for use in specific applications.

This information shall be marked on the packaging and/or on the product’s technical data sheet.

NOTE 2 This does not remove the requirement that all manufacturers claiming compliance with this ISO

Standard should state declared values for the properties of their products, when required.

Annex A
(normative)
Test methods
A.1 Sampling
A.1.1 Tile adhesive

Take a sample of at least 2 kg of the product to be tested in accordance with ISO 15605 and EN 1067.

A.1.2 Membrane
Cut a sample of at least 1 m of the membrane to be tested

A.1.3 Other. Membrane adhesive (if required), primer (if required), seam sealer (if required)

Obtain a full unit of any of these materials if required
A.2 Test conditions

Standard conditions shall be (23 ± 2) °C and (50 ± 5) % Relative Humidity and a circulation of air in the

working area less than 0,2 m/s.

When the test specimens have to be conditioned according to the test method, the tolerances in the

time of conditioning for all test specimens shall be as follows:
Conditioning Tolerance

ISO/DIS 13007-6:2019(E)
A.3.1.2 Membrane adhesive
Membrane adhesive as recommended by the waterproofing membrane manufacturer
A.3.1.3 Primer

If applicable and requested by the manufacturer of the sheet waterproofing membrane

A.3.1.4 Seam Sealer

If applicable and requested by the manufacturer of the sheet waterproofing membrane

A.3.1.5 Tile adhesive

The Tile adhesive used for evaluation should be the same for all testing performed in a series, a C2S1

adhesive being recommended.
A.3.2 Ceramic tiles
The tiles shall be clean and dry.
The tiles used for this method shall be of:

type BI : fully vitrified tile complying with ISO 13006 with one side visually flat and no surface

treatment, with a water absorption ≤ 0,5 % by mass, unglazed and with a plain adhering surface, with

facial dimensions of (50 ± 1) mm × (50 ± 1) mm for testing flat membranes

type BL : fully vitrified tile complying with ISO 13006 with one side visually flat and no surface

treatment, with a water absorption

facial dimension of (100 +/- 1) mm x (100 +/- 1) mm for testing geometrically configured membranes.

A.3.3 Test substrate
A.3.3.1 Concrete slab
The concrete slab shall comply with ISO 13007-2.
A.3.3.2 Other substrates (optional)

Other substrates may be used upon agreement if the substrate is recommended for the ceramic tile

application by the membrane manufacturer. To demonstrate compatibility with other optional

substrates, the product shall be applied to the selected substrate in accordance with the initial adhesion

test method (A 4.6.2). When a result of more or equal to

0,2 N/mm is achieved or cohesive failure occurs in the substrate, the requirement is considered

satisfied.
A.3.4 Ceramic tile adhesive
The ceramic tile adhesive shall comply with ISO 13007-1.
A.3.5 Sodium hypochlorite
Analytical grade sodium hypochlorite.
