Application Measures should be taken to ensure that all surfaces are free from ice. frost or condensation. Concrete blinding under base slab should be surface dry, free from standing water, and laid to a regular surface free from sharp protrusions and hollows. Horizontal surfaces under base slabs do not usually require priming before applying the membrane.
Vertical faces shall be smooth, regular, dry and free from nails and primed with one coat of Servicised B Primer HC applied by brush or roller, at a rate of 10-12 sq m/litre depending on the porosity of the surface, and allowed to completely dry before the application of the Bituthene 1000X HC. Brickwork shall be flush pointed or rendered to provide a smooth surface before priming. Bituthene 1000X HC shall be laid by peeling back the protective release paper and applying the adhesive face on to the prepared surface. The material should be brushed on to the surface to ensure good initial bond.Adjacent rolls are aligned and overlapped 50mm minimum at side and ends and well rolled with a firm pressure using a Servicised Lap Roller to ensure complete adhesion and continuity between the layers. Bituthene 1000X to extend 300mm beyond line of retaining walls to allow continuity with the vertical application. Anypunctures or damaged areas should be cleaned and patched using Bituthene 1000X with 50mm laps all round. Following the application care should be taken to prevent damage by following trades by using a 25mm screed as horizontal protection or Servipak boards spot bonded with Pak Adhesive. Vertical faces to be protected if required against damagefrom backfilling and fixing of reinforcement by using Korkpak, Servipak or other boards recommended by Servicised Ltd. spot bonded with Pak Adhesive.
