– As priming coat before applying and bituminous coating
– As priming coat before applying any waterproofing membrane
– Suitable for use as a primer below or above ground level
Coverage rate varies from 0.3 ‐ 0.5 kg/sq.mt depending on the application method, surface properties, and condition of substrates.
Less than 4 hours, to touch depends on local weather conditions.
– The surface must be thoroughly cleaned and free from dust, dirt, oil, and grease.
– Bitumen primer D‐41 should be well stirred prior to use and applied to the substrate by means of brush, roller, or spray.
