ALUGARD - Fibered Aluminium Roof Coating

BITUMAT ALUGARD is a fibered, cold applied, high quality, reflective, decorative and waterproofing asphalt base coating. Formulated with ductile bitumen, polished aluminium flakes and fortified with fibers, mineral stabilizers and additives.


Remove all dirt, debris, scale, loose gravel, granule, loose coating, oil and grease. If applying over dried-out, weathered asphalt, first prime with BITUMAT BITUPRIME/ BITUFAST. When coating a metal structure remove all dust, dirt and rust by sand blasting, etching or steel wire brush, then prime with BITUMAT METALSEAL and allow the primer to cure for 2 days before coating.

Apply with roofing brush, squeegee or airless spray equipment at the recommended coverage rates. The coating should be applied with all strokes in one direction to achieve colour uniformity and optimum brilliance. The material should be thoroughly stirred with a mechanical mixer prior to application and periodically during application. Best results are realised when application takes place at temperatures above 20°C., with low relative humidity.


BITUMAT ALUGARD is an excellent protective coating for BUR, composition and modified bitumen roofs. Effective as waterproofing, preservative coating over aged bitumen roofs. BITUMAT ALUGARD is an effective coating over metal roofs and over roof flashing details.
