Self Adhesive Bitumen Tanking Membrane
Self adhesive bitumen tanking membrane is a high performance, cold applied waterproof membrane, manufactured from tough, bi-orientated HDPE film to a layer of rubber modified bitumen adhesive. The advanced backing film gives improved technical performance on tear strength and tensile strength, puncture resistance and dimensional stability. It also offers good conform-ability for site application.
The Bitumen Tanking Membrane is used for internal and external tanking of underground structures, reservoirs, car park, subways, lift shafts and retaining walls. It is satisfactory for use as a waterproofing membrane for type A basement constructions grades up to and including 3 as defined in Table 1 of BS 8102:2009.
