Receptor/wall joint details can differ from project to project depending on the receptor type (flange/no flange) and shower wall construction method. Another influencing factor in joint seal design is the joint sealing material’s integration and compatibility with liquid and sheet applied shower wall waterproofing membranes. FlangeBand TileBud addresses these factors.

TileBud presents the Sealux strip and foam backer rod as separate components enabling installers to accommodate all joint detail types with one strip, as the instruction sheets, images and videos below highlight.
