Bitumineous Anticorrosive Coat
Bituminous protective coating
BITUCOTE is designed to provide a continuous barrier to the passage of water and water vapor and can be used to produce vapor barriers, damp proof courses, linings to potable water tanks and pipes, below ground concrete protection, concrete curing by water retention, and corrosion protection to metal surfaces.
- Single component
- Easily and inexpensively applied; high coverage rate
- Tough and resistant to most naturally occurring chemicals
- Does not taint water
- Can be applied to damp concrete substrates
- Quick drying
- Excellent adhesion to most common building substrates
- Excellent water retention for use as a curing compound
- Successfully used for over 30 years in a wide range of environments
BITUCOTE complies with BS3416:1975 Type 1A General purpose bituminous coating, BS3416:1975 Type II Bituminous coating for drinking water tanks and ASTM C309 water retention requirements for curing membranes.
BITUCOTE low viscosity blend of selected bitumens in solvent dries to form a high quality tough bitumen film. BITUCOTE can be applied by brush, roller or spray equipment to prepared surfaces for a variety of purposes.
Instructions for use:
Surfaces must be clean, dry, free from oil, grease and all loosely adhering particles such as rust, mill scale, mortar and cement laitance. These should be carefully removed by wire or stiff brushing and finally soft brushing or filtered compressed air to remove dust. Oil and grease should be removed by the use of a proprietary degreasing agent. For optimum adhesion to steel, grit blasting to SA21/2 is recommended. BITUCOTE can be applied to damp concrete, brick and plaster surfaces provided there is no free surface water or bleed. A test patch is recommend where there is doubt.
