The original self-adhesive waterproofing membrane with unique rubber/bitumen compound and cross laminated high density polyethylene. For basements and substructures in hot climates.

Product Description

BITUTHENE® 3000HC (Hot Climate grade) is the 1.5 mm thick waterproofing membrane made of Bituthene advanced self adhesive technology. Proven in the Middle East region for more than 30 years, the adhesive is a proprietary complex formulation to ensure durability and optimum performance in the most demanding Hot Climate conditions. BITUTHENE® 3000HC can be used for elevated temperatures of up to +55 °C. BITUTHENE® 3000HC complies with the international standard BS 8102: 2009 for the protection of structures below ground.

Product Advantages

  • Fast, easy, cold applied -
    • Many contractors use their own labour for speed, cost, and to avoid scheduling issues; no additional logistics for torching equipments and gas cylinders.
  • Safety –
    • No fire or gas hazard, or harmful fumes due to torching.
    • No hot works permit.
  • Reduces installation risk no risk of:
    • Over heating that damages the membrane and affects performance.
    • Under heating – poor membrane adhesion and lap sealing affects water tightness.
  • Productivity - full 20m2 per roll with only 50 mm laps as standard:
    • Twice the coverage per roll, with 50% less waste.
    • 50% lighter - easier, faster handling especially for vertical applications.
  • Original BITUTHENE® self adhesive membrane technology, the industry benchmark.
  • Gas resistant – barrier to radon and methane gases during the lifetime of the structure.
  • Full width cross laminated HDPE film -
    • Only Bituthene has edge to edge twin sealing for highest waterproofing integrity.
  • Less waste, faster, quality installation
    • Fast drying, high coverage BITUTHENE® B1 primer.
    • Unique bonding allows ‘repositioning’ during application.
    • Pre-marked overlaps – ensures minimum 50 mm overlaps without marking at site.
    • High quality packaging with crush resistant core - ensures “as made” quality of product from production to application.
    • Siliconised release paper – ensures smooth release even at high +55 °C site temperature.
