BITUTHENE® 3000/3000HC & 3000 LT membranes
Description

BITUTHENE® 3000/3000HC & BITUTHENE 3000 LT membranes are self-adhesive, rubberized asphalt/polyethylene waterproofng membranes for on  grade plaza and parking decks and below grade basements, tunnels and other subterranean applications. 

Key Benefits
  • GCP (Singapore) Pte Ltd is certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 by TUV SUD PSB Pte Ltd
  • Specifically designed as  a barrier to water, moisture and gas by physically isolating the structure from the surrounding substrate
  • Resistant to hydrostatic head resistance
Application Type

Application on Horizontal Surfaces


(Note: PREPRUFE® pre-applied membranes are  recommended for below slab or for any application where the membrane is applied before concreting. See PREPRUFE Waterproofing Membrane product information sheets.)
All horizontal surfaces should be sloped to drain at least 11 mm/m. When a minimum slope of 11 mm/m cannot be achieved, 2 layers of BITUTHENE® Membrane 
Apply membrane from the low point to the high point so that laps shed water. Overlap all seams at least 50 mm. Stagger all end laps. Roll the entire membrane firmly and completely as soon as possible. Use a linoleum roller or standard water-filled garden roller less than 760 mm wide, weighing a minimum of 34 kg when filled. Cover the face of the roller with a resilient material such as a 13 mm plastic foam or two wraps of indoor-outdoor carpet to allow the membrane to fully contact the primed substrate. Seal all T-joints and membrane terminations with BITUTHENE® Liquid Membrane by the end of the day.

Application on Vertical Surfaces

Apply membrane in lengths up to 2.5 m. Overlap all seams at least 50 mm. On higher walls apply membrane in two or more sections with the upper overlapping the lower by at least 50 mm. Roll all membrane with a hand roller.
Terminate the membrane at grade level. Press the membrane firmly to the wall with the butt end of a hardwood tool such as a hammer handle or secure into a reglet. Failure to use heavy pressure at terminations can result in a poor seal. All top of wall terminations must be sealed with BITUTHENE Liquid Membrane BITUTHENE® Mastic. A termination bar may be used to ensure a tight seal. At the end of each working day, if the wall has been only partially covered, apply a maximum 6mm bead of BITUTHENE Mastic tooled thin or BITUTHENE Liquid Membrane along the exposed edges of the membrane at its temporary terminations to prevent vertical drainage of precipitation undermining the membrane adhesion.

Overview

Flexible and powerful

Bituthene® is available in a number of grades to suit your project needs. Supplied as an easily-applied sheet, It can be cold-applied at temperatures as low as 25°F, and can be placed on a variety of concrete surfaces. Its robust waterproofing properties, combined with its ease of application, results in a contractor-friendly product that adds value to buildings.

Apply easily, anywhere

Although the chemical properties of Bituthene® make it suitable for a variety of applications, we have added mechanical innovations to further its ease of use and long-term viability.

  • Ripcord® design lets workers easily split release liner for ease of positioning
  • Cold-applied membrane avoids risk of fire during installation due to the fact that flame and/or hot works are not required
  • Self-adhesive overlaps avoid leaky seams and eliminate the need for specialised equipment or training.
  • When used with primer, Bituthene® can easily be applied to damp or green concrete during time-sensitive construction, saving time and money for the project team.

Unparalleled water protection

Buildings change and settle over time, but Bituthene® accommodates those changes.

  • Robust film and specially formulated adhesive provide maximum water protection
  • Flexible yet strong membrane provides crack bridging capabilities and moves with concrete, accommodating minor settling
  • Controlled thickness ensures lack of variation

Get world-class technical services

With so many versatile applications, there’s a Bituthene® solution for nearly every project and design. We provides world-class technical services in order to make those limits even smaller.
