Bitumen paint is a solvent-borne, bituminous black paint. When dry it forms an odourless and taint free bitumen film.
Used for the protection of ferrous and nonferrous metals, concrete, roofing felt, fibre/cement, corrugated iron, asphalt and wood, against water. Reduces corrosion and decay.
Bitumen paint is supplied ready for use and should not require thinning. Apply at least two coats by brush, roller or spray allowing each coat to dry before applying the next coat. Note: At very low service temperatures the coating will become less flexible, while at high temperatures it becomes soft and less resistant to degradation by the environment, and will ultimately flow.
Approximately 6 hours depending on drying conditions.
- Do not use in areas where subsequent solvent contact is likely.
- Do not use for potable drinking water tanks.
- Allow sufficient drying time between coats.
- May bleed through any paints subsequently applied over it. Apply a primer recommended by the paint manufacturer before over painting.
- 4-10m2 per litre (dependant on substrate porosity)
- 5 Litre
Porous surfaces may need a primer coat prior to the application of the paint.
