Advanced, water, moisture and gas resistant self-adhesive membrane for sub-structures
water and moisture resistant – for levels 2, 3 and 4 according to BS 8102:1990 (UK) .
gas resistant – protects against methane and radon gas
high quality – hydrostatic pressure resistance 70 m/w.c., with ultra low moisture transmission rate.
non-metallic membrane – chemicals resistant; unlike the aluminium based membranes, overlaps do not require extra bond.
wide application range reduces delays – application temperature from -100 °C to +350 °C, damp substrate inclusive.
easier handling in warm weather – over 20% reduction in solar heat absorption
unique composite film membrane – engineered for strong, flexible and smooth finish.
ensures quality installation – printed overlap line leads to minimal overlap; slightly highlighted spots show damages, facilitating repairs.
compatibility – can be combined with Preprufe® pre-applied membrans, Bituthene® liquid membrane and Hydroduct® products for systematic solutions
Description Bituthene®8000 updates well-known Bituthene® bonding technology with the unique grey coloured carrier film, providing high quality result and simple installation. Membrane can be used for protection of horizontal or vertical foundations and other sub-structures against penetration of water, moisture and gas.
Bituthene® has been tested to withstand more than 70 m w.c. and exceeds more than 90 times BRE (UK) minimal requirement for methane resistance. The membrane is printed with Bituthene® logo for easier identification and overlap lines at either of the edges to ensure 50mm overlap. Bituthene® 8000 is very strong, still, accidental damages are made visible by the black compound showing through the grey film. Damages can be easily repaired with a piece of Bituthene® 8000.
