APPLICATION

Clean the surface to be treated, removing all dust, grease foreign matter, release agents and curing compound residue. Stir contents well and apply Cemix Bituproof Plus as supplied, by brush. May also be applied by commercial spray equipment. Two coats are recommended for complete waterproofing. The first coat should be applied in one direction only, the second coat should be applied at right angles to the first. DO NOT BRUSH TO OBTAIN BETTER COVERAGE. On porous surfaces a primer coat of CEMIX BITUPROOF PLUS diluted with equal quantity of clean water should be used followed by two undiluted coats as above. Wash out brushes in water every 15 – 20 minutes during application. Allow complete drying between coats 12 – 24 hours. DO NOT commence application if rain is expected. If waterproofing a below ground wall, allow final coat to dry completely and protect coating with polystyrene sheets, clean sand or similar, before back filling. Where subjected to ultra-violet light, bitumous products should be painted with water based paint for protection.  Do not use on interior walls or floors to stop water or dampness. Instead use CEMIX AQUASTOP or CEMIX NO DAMP. NOT to be applied indoors. Only apply to exterior surfaces which have positive water pressure. Not suitable for roofs, use CEMIX ROOF & GUTTER for it.
