MASS USE

Go top
Substrate preparation
The substrate should be:
- even,
- clean,
- dry or matt-wet,
- smooth,
- free of grease, dripstones and other anti-adhesive substances; substrates coated
with cement laitance should be mechanically cleaned,
- primed.
Substrate priming
Dilute ATLAS GENERAL-PURPOSE BITUMEN MASS with water in 1:1 ratio. Apply the mass upon substrate with a brush or a roofing brush.
Repairs of roofing membranes
Cut or squeeze blisters in damaged roofing membranes, repair and clean the points, cut membrane pieces should be filled with an adhesive for roofing membranes or stuck/welded with patches of roofing felt. After filling the gaps and drying, ATLAS GENERAL-PURPOSE BITUMEN MASS is applied with two coats, the second one when the previous one dries. Strengthen the contact points of roofing membranes with chimneys, ventilation ducts, etc. with reinforcing fabric, which should be folded up to appropriate height. Sprinkle fresh last coat with mineral granules. This action significantly extends durability of applied coating.
Damp proofing
Apply undiluted mass with a brush or a float, so the dry residue keeps min. 1 mm thick. Each application should be carried out when the previous coat dries. Application should not be carried out during precipitation and in strong sunshine.

CONSUMPTION

Go top
Average consumption:
- approx. 0.2 kg/m² per coat (priming)
- approx. 1.5 kg/m²/mm (damp-proofing)
- 0.5 kg/m² per coat (on roofing membranes).

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Go top
• Do not use with tar materials.
• The tools must be cleaned before the mass dries – with water, after drying – with nitro thinners.
• Keep out of reach of children. Follow the instructions of the Safety Data Sheet.
• All parameters listed refer to use in temperature +23°C and relative humidity 55%. Higher temperature and lower air humidity accelerate, lower temperatures and higher air humidity extend the time of processing and setting.
• Shelf life of product kept in original sealed packaging, in dry rooms in temperature above +5°C is 12 months from the production date shown on the packaging.
