2L, 4L, 10L, 20L & 210L

Substrate Preparation:

Clean the surface to be treated, removing all dust, grease foreign matter, release agents and curing compound residue.

Mixing:

Stir contents well and apply Cemix® Bituproof Plus as supplied, by brush. May also be applied by commercial spray equipment.

Application:

To most surfaces, apply Cemix® Bituproof Plus as supplied, by brush. The first coat should be applied in one direction only. If possible the second coat should be applied at right angles to the first. On porous surfaces a primer coat of Cemix® Bituproof Plus diluted with equal quantity of water should be used followed by two undiluted coats as above. Do not brush out to obtain better coverage.

Two coats of Cemix® Bituproof Plus are recommended for complete waterproofing. Cemix® Bituproof Plus is an air setting material, and will dry on brushes duringapplication. It is suggested that the brushes be washed out every 15 - 20 minutes. For large areas, 2 or 3 brushes used in rotation can help to reduce loss of time during application. Final clean up should be carried out using white spirits or similar materials.

When used as a sand mortar, the amount of sand added to the Cemix® Bituproof Plus will determine the plasticity of the mortar and the hardness of the set material.
