ApplicationBitumen Primer may be applied by brush or roller. The applied film must be allowed to dry before being overlayed with any waterproofing treatment so as to avoid solvent entrapment. Surface Preparation As with all surface coatings, good preparation is of paramount importance to the success and long-life of the system.
- Ensure that the surface to be treated is dry and sound, free of loose, dusting or flaking particles and free from contaminants such as grease and fungus.
- Defects such as cracks, broken mortar joints, etc. are to be repaired prior to primer application.
