Bitumen Aluminium Paint is a solvent-based reflective top coating for all bitumen-based waterproofing products. Whilst the product is UV resistant it does require maintenance every 2-3 years to prevent deterioration of the underlying surface. Application is by brush, roller or spray. Surfaces must be thoroughly clean and dry prior to application.
Torch-on Membrane should be allowed to “cure” for several days before applying Bitumen Aluminium Paint. Failure to do so can cause “spider-cracking” of the paint surface and a bronze rather than a silver finish.
Coverage is approximately 7 sq m per litre. Two coats are recommended.”
Torch-on membrane has been one of the most successful waterproofing products for the protection of flat roofs, balconies and even subterranean walls.
It has been used in South Africa for the past 30-40 years and comes in various thicknesses and finishes. However, what is important is the quality of product. Our climatic conditions are almost unique with extreme Ultra Violet attack coupled with temperature variations ranging from -15ºC to 50ºC. For this reason it is vital that the membranes used are Atactic-Polypropylene (APP) Modified Bituminous Membrane which have been thoroughly tested by a reputable industry body, such as the European Board of Agréments, with a proven track record in this country.
