Isamite

Description

A single-component paint with a base of selected bitumens in a solvent solution. Isamite has a low viscosity and is easy to apply with a brush, roller or spray gun on horizontal, sloping or vertical surfaces. Once completely dry, Isamite forms a film that bonds very firmly to the substrate. It is completely waterproof and chemically resistant to the action of water, diluted acids and most aggressive agents present in the soil and the atmosphere.

Usage:

  • Waterproofing walls and foundations over bare ground.
  • Painting concrete cisterns and cementitious surfaces in contact with slightly aggressive solutions.
  • Suitable for use on concrete. Must be solid, dry and free of oils, grease, old paint and organic growth. Cement laitance and loose/ crumbly sections should be removed with wire brush.
