BITUTHENE® LM (E)

Two component elastomeric liquid applied detailing compound for use with GCP Applied Technologies waterproof membranes

Applications

BITUTHENE® LM (E) is designed to complement GCP sheet systems where liquid applied waterproofing is necessary to ensure watertight continuity. BITUTHENE® LM is a bitumen modified polyurethane sealant that cures to form a tough seamless rubber-like waterproof layer.

Typical details suitable for BITUTHENE® LM (E) are:

  • pile terminations
  • pipe penetrations
  • membrane continuity through masonry
  • internal corners
  • difficult details

The two parts of BITUTHENE® LM (E) are mixed on site and trowelled on to provide a simple and quick waterproofing detailing aid in conjunction with BITUTHENE® and PREPRUFE® sheet systems.

Advantages

  • Liquid applied – conforms to irregular profiles
  • Waterproof – resistant to water vapour and water pressure
  • Tough rubber-like - flexible and damage resistant
  • Seamless – joint free membrane
  • Chemically cured – unaffected by in-service tempertaure variations
  • Cold applied – no flame hazard
  • PREPRUFE® and BITUTHENE® compatible – complements both waterproofing membrane systems

Installation

Substrate Preparation

Surfaces shall be dry and free from dust, dirt, grease or other contaminants. Ambient temperature shall be +5°C and rising. BITUTHENE® LM (E) should preferably be applied prior to the installation of BITUTHENE® waterproofing membranes.

BITUTHENE® LM (E) may be used as a pointing surface sealer. A minimum overlap of the BITUTHENE® sheet membrane of 50 mm shall be provided. BITUTHENE® LM (E) is compatible with dry Primer B1 and BITUTHENE® Primer S2 and the compound used on all BITUTHENE® and PREPRUFE® systems. BITUTHENE® LM (E) will adhere to clean, dry metal substrates.

Mixing

BITUTHENE® LM (E) pack is supplied in a single can containing Part A base with the Part B reactor located separately under the can lid. Using a slow speed mixer with Paddle MR2, pre-mix part A then, add Part B (clear) to Part A (black). Mix the two parts for approximately 1 minute at 100 rpm. Mix for a further 2-3 minutes at 200-300 rpm until uniform blending is achieved. Scrape the sides and bottom of the container during mixing to ensure thorough blending. At temperatures below +10°C, store overnight at +20°C to improve blending and workability. Clean tools and equipment with solvent tool cleaner before BITUTHENE® LM has cured.

Application

Apply BITUTHENE® LM (E) with a serrated trowel or float, solid barrel gun or hand held squeegee to achieve a minimum thickness of 2.5 mm. Once mixed BITUTHENE® LM (E) must be applied within one hour at normal ambient temperatures. Material which has thickened must be discarded.

BITUTHENE® LM shall be allowed to cure for 24 hours before being overlapped by the BITUTHENE® Membrane to achieve watertight continuity

UV Protection

BITUTHENE® LM (E) is not designed for permanently exposed applications, it should be covered within 30 days of application.
