Uses:
  • As a waterproofing and protective coating for foundations, basements.
  • As a corrosion protection for the concrete in the building structures.
  • In damp proof coating.
Advantages:
  • Because of the low temperature of application and of storage, the possibility of heat degradation of the binder is minimized.
  • High viscosity bitumen is retained in a form which may be used at low temperatures.
  • The low temperature of application & storage minimizes hazards from fuming and improves safety and also reduces the energy.
  • Fire risk is minimized.
Packaging:
  • 20 litre pails and 200 litre drums.
  • Bulk tankers.
Standards:
  • Conforming to American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM D- 977).
  • Conforming to American Association of State Highway Officials (AASTO M- 140).
