Properties

Description

POLYBIT® BITUMASTIC is a single component, solvent based bitumen rubber mastic joint sealant. The sealant on curing forms a tough and flexible seal. It has excellent adhesion to concrete, brickwork, asphalt and most construction material substrates. The mastic sealant is modified with non asbestos fibres to make the sealant thixotropic and slump free when applied on vertical areas. Available Pack: 20KG/PAIL

How to use

Surface Preparation

Surface must be free from all dirt, dust and loose material. Any oil and grease contamination must be removed completely. The surface must be made dry prior to the application of the sealant.

Priming

Under normal circumstances priming is not required. However, for very dry and porous surfaces, it is recommended to apply one coat of a solvent based bitumen primer (Polyprime SB)*. Similarly for joints subjected to continuous immersion, priming is recommended. 

Application

The sealant can be applied by means of a spatula or trowel. As the product is solvented, it is recommended to mix the contents of the pail with a paddle mixer for a few minutes prior to the application to ensure a homogenous mix. Sealant application should start form the bottom of the joint/groove and continued to the top. Immediately tool the joint with the spatula or putty knife to smoothen and compress the sealant to effect total contact with joint surfaces. The putty knife shall be moistened with a cleaning solvent to prevent the sealant to adhere to the knife and ensuring a smooth and neat finish. Where masking tape has been employed to keep building surfaces clean, it is advisable to remove them at the moment the sealant filling is completed.
