  • Surface preparation:

Surface preparation is very important to get the highest performance of BITUMEN LV30. Any surface to be coated must be clean, sound and free of oil or grease. Any oil or grease contamination should be removed with a chemical degreaser. All holes should be filled with a suitable cementitious mortar before application of BITUMEN LV30.

There is generally no need for primer coat. Dusty surfaces should be primed with a coat of BITUMEN LV30 , diluted with an equal quantity of cool, clean water and allowed to dry.

  • Application:

It is recommended that two coats of BITUMEN LV30 be applied. The second coat should be applied at a right angle to the first coat. Allow a minimum of 3 hours between coats. Stir well before use. BITUMEN LV30 may be applied by brush, broom or squeegee.
