How to use

SURFACE PREPARATION & PRIMING

The surface where the membrane will be laid is to
be made clean and dry. All surface imperfections
and protrusions are to be removed and repaired.
Structurally unsound and friable concrete must be
removed and repaired with a suitable repair
mortar.
Apply Polyprime SB @ 4-6 m²/lt. as per ASTM D
41 to a clean smooth and dry surface by brush,
roller or spray. Refer primer data sheet for more
details. Allow the primer to dry.

ALIGNMENT & TORCHING

Unroll and align BITUPLUS AR 4000 rolls and re-roll
correctly before torching. Overlap should be
minimum of 100 mm.
Use gas burner to heat substrate and underside of
BITUPLUS AR 4000 Embossing on the lower face of
the membrane allows a fast and safe laying. When
embossing disappears after torching the
membrane is ready to stick. Roll forward and press
firmly against the substrate to bond.
Caution: Do not over torch as this will expose the
reinforcement in the membrane and cause
damage to it. 

UP STAND

All angles and abutments should be sealed with
extra care to ensure full bondage. Seal the edges
well into the grooves and protect with Polyseal PS PG
or any other mastic sealant
