Polyurethane bitumen coating is a single-component, bitumen-containing insulation and coating material. Bitumen polyurethane coating, which can be easily applied to almost any surface, is used in many places such as concrete, metal, galvanization.
Bitumen coating liquid polyurethane is a high elasticity, single component bitumen based waterproofing material. Polyurethane bitumen coating with crack covering feature is used for waterproofing. After the application, the surfaces become smooth.
What is Polyurethane Bitumen Coating?
Bitumen is a hydrocarbon compound obtained from the remains of the distillation of crude oil in oil refineries. During the distillation process, high-density components such as bitumen settle to the bottom. The component remaining after the separation of low-density components by refining is defined as bitumen.
Bitumen is one of the main raw materials used in the construction industry. Bitumen can be used in different ways depending on the application areas as raw material or mixture. It is preferred as a mixture to apply waterproofing in areas such as basements and roofs in buildings and structures.
Bitumen polyurethane is a widely preferred insulation and coating material. It is widely used because it is easy to apply and environmentally friendly. In addition, it has the ability to cover cracks with its flexible structure. It creates a smooth and waterproof solid base on the surface applied. It provides a stylish and beautiful appearance to the area of application. It can be easily applied to open and closed areas.
Water in uninsulated areas causes corrosion and rot. In case of waterproofing with bitumen polyurethane-based products, corrosion and decay are prevented. Thanks to its elastic structure, there is no cracking or deterioration on the surfaces. It cures quickly and the application area is ready for use approximately 72 hours after curing.
How is Bitumen-Based Waterproofing Applied?
Firstly, the ground is prepared for the area where bitumen-based polyurethane waterproofing will be applied. The area must be clean and dry. Ground preparation is completed before waterproofing. After this process, primer is applied to the floor.
After surface preparation, bitumen polyurethane coating is applied to the area to be waterproofed with the help of a roller and brush. After the application, the coating cures quickly and an elastic coating occurs on the surface. After the application, it is necessary to wait for a certain time for it to dry. After the coating is applied, the waterproofing process is completed.
