bitu.®prime is a bituminous solution with petroleum solvents.

A bitumen solution suitable for sealing and priming of all porous and nonporous surfaces prior to treatment with

  • Cold applied, filled bituminous compounds.
  • Hot or cold applied bituminous sealants.
  • Torch-on membranes.
Advantages
  • Versatile bituminous primer for porous or non-porous surfaces.

    • Used on concrete or metal.
    • Economical.
    • Easy to apply.
Surface Preparation

All surfaces to be clean, dry and sound.

Mixing

Stir well before use.

 

Coverage

Practical coverage for estimating purposes: Approx. 5m2/litre depending upon surface texture and porosity.

 

Application

bitu.®prime may be applied by brush or spray. The applied film must be allowed to dry before being over-coated with any waterproofing compound, sealant or coating since any thick overcoat applied over uncured film may lead to solvent entrapment with consequent poor adhesion.
