A Rubberised Bitumen Emulsion. General purpose product used on walls and floors to prevent water ingress and dampness from the ground. Can also be used on roofs and as wood block floor adhesive.

MulticreteTM Rubber Bitumen Emulsion will provide a waterproof membrane on concrete and brick foundations, retaining walls and bridge abutments. It protects concrete structures against attack by sulphates present in soils.
Rubber Bitumen Emulsion can be used as a waterproofer for floors and walls.
It is also highly effective as an adhesive for bonding wood blocks and wood mosaics, expanded polystyrene and cork tiles, and provides a key for plaster on difficult surfaces.
All surfaces must be free from oil, dirt, dust and loose debris. MulticreteTM Rubber Bitumen Emulsion can be applied to damp but not waterlogged surfaces. Porous and hot dry surfaces should be dampened with clean cold water to assist the application of the product.
Stir well before use. Apply by brush. Do not apply to external surfaces in wet weather or if rain is threatened. Allow good ventilation in confined areas. In multi-coat applications, each coat should be allowed to dry completely before the next coat is applied.
MulticreteTM Rubber Bitumen Emulsion may be removed before it has set by washing in clean warm water. If the product has set remove as much bitumen as possible by physically scraping and then remove with white spirit. Minor spillages should be wiped off surfaces before the Rubber Bitumen Emulsion has set. Major spillages should be mopped up immediately with an inert, absorbent material, such as sand, and disposed of in accordance with regulations.
Store inside between 5°c and 40°c. Protect from frost. Shelf life is a minimum 12 months in tightly sealed containers. Containers should be regularly rolled in storage for lengthy periods.
