BITUSEAL - Self-Adhesive Reinforced Membranes

BITUMAT BITUSEAL self-adhesive membranes are produced with special multilayered design with a glassfibre reinforcement which is impregnated and coated on both sides with a uniquely formulated, elastomeric, thermo plastic rubberized bituminous compound which provides high adhesive properties. The compound provides self healing properties.

BITUMAT BITUSEAL 1000 incorporates a dimensionally stable rotproof glassfibre matt. BITUMAT BITUSEAL 1200 has a core of nonwoven polyester fabric.

The membranes are covered on their top surface with a translucent polyethylene foil and on the underside with a siliconised release paper. This combination along with pre manufactured selvedge for overlaps, provides instant adhesion with high tear and puncture resistance and improved tensile strength. A top surfacing of polypropylene film is also available.
