BITUFLEX 
Bituflex is a hot poured  polymer  modified  bitumen  Crack / Joint sealant special designed for hot climates. 

Bituflex is a superior blend of bitumen, polymer and mineral fillers to produce a smooth, tough compound with improved elastomeric performance for easy and rapid application. The problems of 'tyre pick-up' are eliminated because of its product resistance to deformation at road temperatures reaching 90°C.

Bituflex offers good extension over a range of service temperatures (air) approximately 0 °C to +50 °C with a high resistance to flow, excellent pourability at temperatures well below the maximum safe heating temperature. 

 

USES

Bituflex is ideal for the sealing of Cracks/Joints in concrete,asphalt roads and runways .

 

APPLICATION METHOD

 

JOINT PREPARATION

Cracks should be thoroughly cleaned by grit blasting, power brushing or ideally by hot compressed air. When dry and in a clean condition they are ready to receive Bituflex grade.

 

HEATING AND POURING

Place two or three Bituflex blocks into a special designed preheater unit, start agitator motor and engage agitator when the material becomes molten. Continue to  feed  preheater  unit  as material is used. Do not allow material to exceed 220°C. Material should not be reheated. Materials should be poured into cracks with the minimum loss of temperature, either by melter pourer or bucket and screed box.

Should further information or assistance be required, our Technical Department is available to help you.
