Bituthene® Primer N
Description

BITUTHENE® Primer N is a bitumen-based primer in solvent which is designed to penetrate and seal porous surfaces to provide good initial adhesion and excellent permanent adhesion of Bituthene Waterproofing Membranes under many kinds of conditions.

Key Benefits
Application Type
  • Bituthene Primer N may be applied by spray, roller or brush. Use a heavy nap roller with natural material such as lamb’s wool to avoid deterioration.
Bituthene® Primer Type C
Description

A liquid membrane curing compound and primer for BITUTHENE® membranes. It consists of water dispersed non-volatile solids. After application, the water evaporates leaving a thin impermeable film over the surface.

Key Benefits
  • Complies with Green Star requirements
  • It facilitates moisture retention in the concrete giving maximum strength and durability.
  • Based on a fine particle bitumen emulsion to give a tenacious, vapour proof bond to the substrate.
Application Type
  • Apply one full coat forming a continuous film at a rate of 5m2 / L by brush, broom, roller or low pressure spray. Allow to dry and apply the Bituthene waterproof membrane in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.If using as curing compound, apply a further coat after a minimum 7 days cure. Early application of membrane may increase moisture vapour bubbles under Bituthene.
Bituthene® Primer WB
Description

BITUTHENE® Primer WB is a non-fibrated, stable, odour and taint-free water-based bituminous primer. It promotes good initial adhesion and more importantly, excellent permanent adhesion of Bituthene membranes.

Bituthene Primer WB can be used by roller, brush-applied or spray-applied to damp (not wet) or dry clean surface. Ensure that only an even, thin coating is applied and ensure Bituthene Primer WB has fully penetrated the substrate. Prime twice if substrate is porous. Stir emulsion well before use.
Overview

Flexible and powerful

Bituthene® is available in a number of grades to suit your project needs. Supplied as an easily-applied sheet, It can be cold-applied at temperatures as low as 25°F, and can be placed on a variety of concrete surfaces. Its robust waterproofing properties, combined with its ease of application, results in a contractor-friendly product that adds value to buildings.

Apply easily, anywhere

Although the chemical properties of Bituthene® make it suitable for a variety of applications, we have added mechanical innovations to further its ease of use and long-term viability.

  • Ripcord® design lets workers easily split release liner for ease of positioning
  • Cold-applied membrane avoids risk of fire during installation due to the fact that flame and/or hot works are not required
  • Self-adhesive overlaps avoid leaky seams and eliminate the need for specialised equipment or training.
  • When used with primer, Bituthene® can easily be applied to damp or green concrete during time-sensitive construction, saving time and money for the project team.

Unparalleled water protection

Buildings change and settle over time, but Bituthene® accommodates those changes.

  • Robust film and specially formulated adhesive provide maximum water protection
  • Flexible yet strong membrane provides crack bridging capabilities and moves with concrete, accommodating minor settling
  • Controlled thickness ensures lack of variation

Get world-class technical services

With so many versatile applications, there’s a Bituthene® solution for nearly every project and design. We provides world-class technical services in order to make those limits even smaller.
