BITUMAX - APP Bitumen Membrane BITUMAX

Description :

BITUMAX  is a plastomeric Modified Bitumen Membrane used for various waterproofing applications. It is manufactured in a high-tech calendaring process, which involves the saturation and coating of a polyester carrier with an APP polymer-modified bitumen compound. The polymer additives are used to improve the thermal, chemical and ageing properties of the bitumen compound. Meanwhile, the mechanical characteristics such as tensile strength, elongation and tear resistance are boosted by the polyester carrier, which acts as a reinforcement to the product.

 

KEY FEATURES

• Excellent U.V. resistance when surface is finished with slates

• High chemical resistance to alkaline solutions, light acidic solutions and bacteria

• Superior thermal resistance under a wide range of temperature fluctuation

• Absolute impermeability to water

• Excellent adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces

• Applicable for above and below grades usages.

APPLICATION

BITUMAX  membranes are used for a wide variety of waterproofing requirements and in applications subject to high mechanical stresses, such as:

• Roofing or re-roofing for covered single layer systems or base layer for multi-layer systems, sloped and flat roofs

• Tunnels, wet areas, swimming pools and toilets

• Underground structures

• Slab on grade

SURFACE FINISH

The lower surface of the membrane is laminated with a thin thermo-fusible polyethylene ‘burn-off’ film. The membrane is available with a wide range of upper surface finish options including aluminum foil, sand and different colored slates such as red, green, grey and polyethylene film.(click here to see the color guide)

STORAGE

All Modified Bitumen Waterproofing Membrane should be stored in upright position in dry, flat, ventilated and away from direct sun light storage area.
