                  BRUSH OR SPRAY                                BS 3416 TYPES 1 & 11                                   SHEEN FINISH

A White Spirit based, deep penetrating bituminous solution, which dries to form a black sheen finish coating, suitable for application to a wide
variety of substrates including galvanised metal; steel; Asbestos; cement fibreboard; concrete; stone, timber panels, fence posts and
brickwork. This product conforms to BS 3416 Types 1 & 11 and is suitable for use on potable water tanks.
Bitumen Paint provides a weatherproof and water proof protective coating, resisting the ingress of moisture and damp and thus protecting
against the conditions which allow for corrosion, frost damage and wood rotting fungi to damage and destroy structures based on any of the
above materials.

Ensure the surface is thoroughly clean and dry prior to application, use a cloth soaked in White Spirit to wipe down where necessary. All rust
and loose debris must be thoroughly and effectively wire-brushed clean, although severely corroded sections may require treatment with a
Zinc Phosphate primer and left for three days before applying Bitumen Paint. On porous surfaces the application of a coat of Bitumen Primer
will improve the quality and durability of subsequently applied coats of Bitumen Paint. Surfaces affected by organic growth, mould and algae
should also receive a pre-treatment with ABICIDE FUNGICIDAL WASH to eradicate the source of any organic matter likely to grow through
the crack or gap to be sealed.

Bitumen Paint is supplied as a ready to brush or Spray viscosity and should only be thinned by no more than a 10% addition of White Spirit
only where spray application is preferred. Ideally all porous substrates should be primed using Bitumen Primer, ensuring it is well scrubbed in
with no pooling or inconsistent loadings evident. Weathered Fibre cement boards or rag based bitumen felts require a primer coat and then a
saturated two coat treatment to be fully sealed and protected, allowing the first to dry before proceeding with the second coat. Avoid
application onto tar-based substrates and clean brushes and spray equipment with White Spirit or Turpentine Substitute.

A White Spirit based Bituminous solution.
Specific Gravity – 0.95 +/- 0.02
Flash Point – 40’C
Application Temperature range: 5’C to 45’C, on surfaces completely free from water.
Drying Time – 3 to 6 hours depending upon surrounding temperature.

FLAMMABLE; HARMFUL: May cause lung damage if swallowed.
TOXIC to aquatic organisms; May cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.
IRRITATING to eyes skin and respiratory tract.
Keep locked up and out of reach of children; Keep away from sources of ignition - NO SMOKING.
Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, overalls and eye face protection.

Depends upon the texture and porosity of the surface to be coated. Generally on a smooth level metal surface, Bitumen Paint will cover at
between 8 to 10 square metres per litre, per coat, however porous surfaces such as un-primed concrete will require about 1.7 litres to cover
the same area per coat.

BITUMEN PAINT is supplied in 1 litre; 2.5 litre & 5 litre cans and has a storage life of up to 12 months if stored in dry, un-opened conditions.
