Installation

Minimum application temperature +5°C for BITUSTIK™ Standard and -5°C for BITUSTIK™ 4000.

Concrete surfaces must be smooth, clean and dry. Use BITUTHENE® Primer S2 applied evenly by roller or brush to improve adhesion, particularly on dusty substrates, and allow to dry.

BITUSTIK™ is simply applied by peeling away the silicone release paper and applying one side of the adhesive face to the prepared substrate and roll firmly to ensure complete adhesion without creases or voids. Roll ends and cut edges should be overlapped 50 mm minimum and rolled firmly to ensure a watertight seal.

Once the first adhesive face has been applied and rolled, peel off the second release paper and apply the other material (SERVISEAL® PVC waterstops, PREPRUFE® or BITUTHENE® membranes, HYDRODUCT® drainage or GCP Protection).
