Technical Data Sheet Copy of POLYPRIME SB

POLYPRIME SB

TDS_Polyprime-SB_GCC_1209

S olvent Based Bitumen Primer

POLYPRIME SB is a quick drying solvent based low viscosity bitumen primer. It is used as a primer coat on
masonry and concrete substrates to improve the adhesion of bitumen based membranes and coatings.
POLYPRIME SB is low in viscosity, which allows it to penetrate into the concrete pores and improve the adhesion between the membrane and the concrete surface. In addition to that, the primer also acts as a
binder for the dust particles which gets accumulated on the concrete surface even after cleaning.

CHARACTERISTICS
 Improves the adhesion between bitumen based
sheet membranes and coatings.
 Cold applied, does not require heating.
 Binder for dust particles.
 As a curing compound on freshly cast concrete.
 Excellent barrier against chloride and sulphate
ion ingress and carbon dioxide diffusion.
 Anti corrosive.
 Conforms to the following standards:
 ASTM D 41 - Asphalt primer for roofing, damp
proofing and waterproofing
 BS 3416, Type A Class C - Bitumen based
coatings for cold application, suitable for use in
contact with potable water.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION
POLYPRIME SB is used as a primer and sealer coat
prior to the application of bitumen based waterproofing membranes and coatings. This can also
be used as a curing compound on freshly cast concrete.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
The application temperature should be between
4C to 45C. Application procedures may vary
slightly depending upon site conditions. The general recommended guidelines for the application
of the primer is as follows:
Surface preparation
The surface shall be cleaned thoroughly of all
contaminants like dust, traces of curing compound,
oil and grease. All surface imperfections, nail head
protrusions, structurally unsound and friable concrete shall be removed and repaired with a suitable POLYCRETE* concrete repair mortar. The surface
must be dry before priming with POLYPRIME SB.

Application
Mix the contents of the pail or drum for a few minutes to remove any sediments. Apply the primer
@4-6 m/lt. to a clean smooth and dry surface by
brush, roller or airless spray. Allow the primer to dry
prior to the application of the membrane. For
highly porous surfaces application of a second
coat is recommended.

COVERAGE
The coverage is 4-6 m/lt./coat. However, the
coverage will depend on the porosity of the substrate. In order to ascertain the exact coverage, a
trial application is carried out at site.

STORAGE & SHELF LIFE


The pails and drums must be stored in a covered,
dry and shaded area, away from direct sunlight,
UV and other sources of heat and protected from
extreme temperatures. The shelf life of the product
is up to 12 months if stored as per the recommendations. Excessive exposure to sunlight and UV
will result in the deterioration of the quality of the
product and reduce its shelf life.

HEALTH & SAFETY


POLYPRIME SB contains volatile solvent with a low
flash point (38C). It should be kept far away from
naked flame. Avoid inhalation of vapors and ensure there is adequate ventilation in the work place.
Gloves, protective masks and goggles should be
worn during application. If swallowed seek medical
attention immediately.

BITUSTICK XL
TDS_Bitustick-XL_GCC_1209

Cross Laminated Self Adhesive Waterproofing Membrane

BITUSTICK XL is a self adhesive waterproofing membrane based on a tropical grade of polymer modified
bitumen. The bitumen compound is laminated onto an impervious, non-perforated, cross laminated HDPE
film. The membrane is protected on the self adhesive side with a silicone coated release film. BITUSTICK
XL conforms to the requirements of BS 8102.

CHARACTERISTICS
 Specially formulated for tropical climate grade.
 Provides protection against water and vapor.
 Self adhesive. Requires just peeling off the silicone film and sticking to the surface.
 Excellent adhesion to vertical and horizontal
surfaces.
 Excellent resistance to chlorides, sulphates, alkalis and acids.
 Good tear and puncture resistance.
 Excellent tensile strength.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION
BITUSTICK XL is used as waterproofing and damp
proofing membrane intended for concrete protection. It may be used for horizontal and vertical application for tanking below ground structures, subways and retaining walls.

as a binder for the dust which gets accumulated on


the concrete surface even after cleaning.
Alignment
Start the installation of all membrane plies from the
low point or drains, so that the flow of water is over
or parallel to the plies, but never against the laps.
All overlaps at the membrane seams shall be installed so as to have "up" slope laps over "down"
slope laps. Begin membrane application by unrolling the roll of BITUSTICK XL membrane and aligning the side laps.
Application
Peel off the release film from the self adhesive side
and start unrolling the membrane and press it to
the surface. Smoothen the membrane from the
center to the edges with a wooden press in order
to remove entrapped air. Furthermore, an iron
roller shall be used for rolling on top of the applied
membrane to ensure a proper and strong adhesion
of the bitumen compound with the base surface.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
1

The application temperature should be between


4C to 45C. Application procedures may vary
slightly depending upon site conditions. The general
recommended guidelines for the application of the
self adhesive waterproofing system is as follows:

Surface preparation
The surface shall be cleaned thoroughly of all
contaminants like dust, traces of curing compound,
oil and grease. All surface imperfections, protrusions, structurally unsound and friable concrete
must be removed and repaired with a suitable
POLYCRETE* concrete repair mortar.
Priming
Apply POLYPRIME SB* (Solvent based primer) @ 46 m/lt. as per ASTM D 41 to a clean smooth and
dry surface by brush, roller or spray. Allow the
primer to dry prior to the application of the membrane. As the viscosity of the primer is low, it easily
penetrates into the concrete pores which promotes
the adhesion between the membrane and the concrete surface. In addition to that the primer also acts

Protection
The membrane shall be protected immediately after application from damage, due to ongoing site
activities or from sharp aggregates during backfilling by a tough, weather, warp and rot proof asphaltic protection board (BITUBOARD)*. Alternatively,
on horizontal areas the membrane can also be
protected by laying a cement sand screed (50mm).
BITUBOARD can be fixed with a double sided adhesive bitumen tape (BITUTAPE TS)*.

HANDLING
BITUSTICK XL membranes are packed in loose corrugated boxes to avoid any damage during transit or during storage at sites. Care should be taken
when storing the membranes at sites and should
not be kept within close proximity of any sharp or
protruding edges to avoid puncturing or damaging the membrane.

STORAGE & SHELF LIFE

BITUSTICK XL membranes must be stored in a shaded


area on wooden pallets neatly covered by a thick
fabric and tied securely in a manner that will minimize exposure to sunlight & UV. The membrane
shall be protected from all sources of heat. The
shelf life is 12 months if stored as per recommendations. Excessive exposure to sunlight, UV and
other sources of heat will result in considerable deterioration of the product and reduce its shelf life.

BITUSTICK XL is nonhazardous, non-flammable


and therefore can be disposed off in any regular
disposal area. BITUSTICK XL should be disposed off
only after wrapping with paper, plastic or cloth as
the bitumen compound has a tendency to soften
under heat and pressure, which would make further handling very difficult.

HEALTH & SAFETY


BITUSTICK XL contains a tacky bitumen compound
and during application can adhere to human skin.
Bitumen stains can be removed by using a
clothdipped ina solvent. In case the affected area
is a sensitive one, seek medical assistance immediately.

F ibre impregnated asphaltic protection board

BITUBOARD is a multi layer, asphaltic protection board. It is manufactured by thermally bonding polymer
modified bitumen with selected additives which is then sandwiched between a layer of saturated fibreglass on one side and anti-stick polyethylene liner on the other.

CHARACTERISTICS

BITUBOARD

BITUSTICK XL

 Non bio-degradable
 Weather, warp and rot proof
 Tough and durable
 Excellent resistance to chemicals
 Improved puncture resistance
 Compatible with most waterproofing systems

FIELDS OF APPLICATION
BITUBOARD has been designed for use as a permanent protection to most waterproofing and damp
proofing systems, especially the bitumen based
sheet membrane and coating systems indicated in
BS 8102. BITUBOARD will absorb the impact of aggregate shock, normal site foot traffic and protect
the waterproofing membrane from penetration by
the sharp edges of reinforced steel and aggregate
during the backfill process and late settlement.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
The application of BITUBOARD should be carried
out when the ambient temperature is between 4C
and 45C and should avoided in case of extreme
weather conditions such as sand storms, rain, etc.
BITUBOARD can be fixed on top of the waterproofing
membrane by using a double sided adhesive tape
(BITUTAPE TS)* or even by torching (for fixing over
torch applied membranes). Once the protection
board is fixed in place, supports/props have to be
used to keep the boards in place till the adhesive
is strong enough to hold the board. Subsequent
boards shall be laid continuously by butt fitting the
edges. For irregular profiles, the board shall be cut
to fit all intersections and protrusions.The butt joints
can be sealed with 50mm HDPE bitumen adhesive
strip to prevent any backfill material entering and
causing damage to the underlying waterproofing
membrane.

Primer

HANDLING
BITUBOARD is shrink-wrapped and loaded on pallets
for easy handling. The pallets should be loaded or
offloaded with the help of a crane or forklift to prevent damage to the protection boards. If the
boards are unloaded individually, it is to be ensured that they are stacked back on a pallet or on
a flat surface.

STORAGE & SHELF LIFE


BITUBOARD should be covered and stored in a dry
and shaded area away from sunlight, UV and
sources of heat. Do not stack one pallet on top of
the other. It is recommended not to open the shrink
wrap till the time of application. The boards, loose
or on pallets, must be stored on flat surface. The
shelf life is 24 months when stored as per the rec-

ommendations. Excessive exposure to sunlight and


UV will result in the deterioration of the quality of
the product and reduce its shelf life.

HEALTH & SAFETY


BITUBOARD might leave bitumen stains on the skin
and hands during application. The stains can be
removed by using a suitable cleaner. Care should
be taken when using tools to cut the boards.
