Sovereign Aqueous Bitumen is a bitumen and rubber latex emulsion to be applied cold as a horizontal damp-proof membrane in solid laid concrete floors. Sovereign Aqueous Bitumen 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 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.
