Features and benefits

Emulsified thixotropic bitumen protective coating. The coating dries to form a black flexible protective film. The finished film forms a tough barrier to vapor transmission.

Properties

Description

POLYBIT® POLYCOAT is used for providing damproofing for below ground concrete structures which are above the water table. This can also be used as the protective coating for built-up roofing systems and other exposed surfaces. The coating is also used as a moisture vapor barrier on block works and concrete surfaces prior to cladding. Available sizes: 12L, 15L, 20L, 200L

How to use

Surface Preparation

The surface shall be cleaned thoroughly of all contaminants
like dust, traces of curing compound, oil and grease. Primer is always recommended prior to coating as it
not only penetrates into the concrete pores and seals
the substrate. The primer coat can be made in the site
by diluting the same bitumen emulsion with 20% water.

Application

Stir the contents of the drum thoroughly prior to application
to remove any sediment. The application can be done
with a roller, brush or airless spray. Apply the coating at
a coverage rate of 1-4 m2/L/coat, depending on the dry
film thickness required. For highly demanding situations,
it is recommended to apply in multiple coats. 

Finishing

The coating shall be protected from ongoing site activities
and during backfilling from getting damaged by a 150
micron polyethylene sheet.
