A bitumen solution suitable for sealing and priming of all porous and non-porous surfaces prior to treatment with:
- Cold applied, ﬁlled bituminous compounds.
- Hot or cold applied bituminous sealants.
- Torch-on membranes.
Versatile bituminous primer for porous or non-porous surfaces.
- Used on concrete or metal.
All surfaces to be clean, dry and sound.
Bonding / Priming
bitu.prime is used as a primer.
|Flash point||30 ºC|
|Dilution||White spirits or turpentine|
|Consistency||Low viscosity liquid|
|Overcoating time @ 25 ºC||Minimum 24 hours|
|Drying time @ 25 °C||+4 hours|
|Resistance||Not solvent resistant|
Stir well before use.
Practical coverage for estimating purposes: Approximately 5 m2/L depending upon surface texture and porosity.
bitu.prime may be applied by brush or spray. The applied ﬁlm must be allowed to dry before being overcoated with any waterprooﬁng compound, sealant or coating since any thick overcoat applied over uncured ﬁlm may lead to solvent entrapment with consequent poor adhesion.
Tools, brushes and mixing equipment should be cleaned immediately after use and before material has set with abe® super brush cleaner followed by washing with soap and water.
Protection / Maintenance on Completion
bitu.prime is used as a primer and is covered by a waterprooﬁng compound or coating.
1 L, 5 L, 25 L and 200 L containers.
