A solvent-free paste consisting of selected water-emulsified bitumens.
Plastimul is a solvent-free paste consisting of selected water-emulsified bitumens, special fine-graded aggregates and additives. It is compatible with cement and sand in any mix ratio. Plastimul’s thixotropic consistency makes it easy to use for waterproofing vertical and sloping surfaces. It can also be used to waterproof masonry or concrete even when their surfaces are still damp due to insufficient curing or atmospheric condensation.
When completely dry, Plastimul forms a waterproof plastic film that is resistant to re-emulsifying after prolonged immersion in water, even when slightly acid or alkaline, and resistant to aggressive agents present in the soil.
Moisten the surfaces to be treated. Surfaces must be free of cement laitance, as well as any residues of oil or grease from formwork release agents. The surface must free of excess material and aggregate. Cracks or crazing in the substrate must be repaired with Mapegrout Thixotropic or Mapefinish.
