A bitumen and rubber latex emulsion applied cold as a horizontal damp-proof membrane in solid laid concrete floors and can also be used as a vertical membrane on the positive (external) side of a structure.
However, for tanking on the negative (internal) side, or where hydrostatic pressure is involved, then use the Sovereign Hey’di K11 Tanking System. When dry the material forms a black, tough, resilient, waterproof coating.

Aqueous Bitumen has been designed so that when applied properly, it provides a sandwich membrane, the dried film thickness of which complies with the appropriate British Standard Code of Practice CP 102:1973. Such thicknesses are considered essential to the adequate performance of the membrane in providing a waterproof and vapour-proof barrier.
Sovereign Aqueous Bitumen complies with the relevant sections of the following standards.
British Standard Code of Practice CP.102:1973. “Protection of buildings against water from the ground”.
The Building Regulations, 1965. “Buildings and Buildings”.
Building Research Station Digest (second series) No. 54 “Damp-Proofing Solid Floors”.
