Hind Bitkote is a single component heavy bodied bitumen based cold applied coating and primer.
Hind Bitkote is used as a primer on steel and concrete substrates which allows establishing a prefect bonding between the mother slab and subsequent over coats. It can also be used over concrete substrates, as a primer for laying of APP Membrane for waterproofing. In aggressive corrosive conditions it can also be used over iron member as an anti-corrosive coating.
Before application the content to be stirred properly to get an uniform consistency & homogeneity. The concrete substrate to be cleaned with wire brush, which should be free from dust, algae, oil, grease, containments and loose particles. When applied over steel surfaces cleaning as per Swedish Standards Class 2 to be followed to achieve better results. Normally two coats are recommended to achieve a film thickness of 250 microns on concrete & steel.
Approximately 2-3 Sq. Mtr / Kg (in 2 coats) depending on the porosity of the Concrete substrate.
Approximately 4-5 Sq. Mtr / Kg (in 2 coats) on steel surface.
