What is Bitumastic:
Bitumastic is basically made from the modified polymer called bitumen. It is mixed with a hydrocarbon solvent such that it can be applied on various types of coatings on various kinds of metal building materials, brickwork and asphalt. It can also be used for adhesive and protection on the concretes.
Bitumastic can be applied with the help of a gun, spatula or trowel. It is basically used only when the materials are cleaned from below the can. It can be used on varied range of purposes. They are basically used to seal the roofs and also its gaps. The chemical should be used only when the surface is cleared off all kinds of substances and it is free of all kinds of dusts.
Before applying a newly coat of Bitumastic, the oil on the surface should be dried. It should be applied in the adjoining parts of the building before the application of any primer or any sealant so as to protect the walls. If the surface is dirty and is very hard to eliminate the dirt, bitumen primer can be added.
What are the properties of Bitumastic?
Bitumastic are very advantageous in many ways. They have a very high tensile strength and elongation property. Due to its expansion and contraction, it can be used on varied ranges of surfaces.
Moreover, it has very high adhesive characteristic and a tough and sturdy bond. It is very stable even at a very high temperature. It is one of the components which can resists oxidation and thus it does not require any kind of mixing with other products.
It also known for its flexibility and durability and hence it can lasts longer. Bitumastic is very economic and hence used in many different fields.
Applications of Bitumastic
Bitumastic can be used in many applications since it is pretty economical. It is preferably appropriate for sealing and also to fill gaps and different kinds of joints on the roofs. It can also point flat chases which are used in waterproofing membranes. Due to its flexibility, Bitumastic can also be used in the felts. It can also be used as a sealing around the roof for various kinds of fissures.
It can be used in the opening point amid roof flashings and brickworks. It is also used to seal cracks in the asphalt and concrete roadways. It is also used to join different kinds of joints in the pipelines to avoid leakages.
