Always stir paint well prior to using

Make sure you use a broom stick, mixer on a slow running drill or pallet knife to mix and mixing should take place for 3-5 mins to ensure all the content is properly mixed together to avoid colour and or drying problems.

As our coatings are heavily pigmented separation can easily occur and you can have colour float, for example a green paint can seem blue before mixing, this is one of the reasons mixing your paint before use is essential.

Additional Information

Bitumen Paints

Bitumen paint is a thick solvent-based liquid famed for its black colouring and excellent protective properties. It is suitable for a wide range of applications, predominantly as a protective coating for buildings and structures made from timber, steel, iron and concrete.

Bitumen paint is used as an anti-corrosive and weatherproof coating when you need a cost-effective solution. Commonly associated with roofing as a weatherproof overcoating for flat roofs, it has many more applications due to its versatility and amazing adhesive properties.

What is Bitumen Paint?

Bitumen paint is an anti-corrosive and protective waterproof membrane used to coat various surfaces. From iron and steel to timber and concrete, black bitumen paint’s many suitable applications include:

Bitumen paint forms an odourless and taint-free black film when dry, providing high levels of protection from water damage like rot and the adverse effects of corrosion. It is ideal when you need a cost-effective solution to these common problems.

What is Bitumen Paint used for?

Famed for its weatherproofing, corrosion resistance and adhesive properties, bitumen paint can be used on most surfaces as long as they are clean and dry. It adheres incredibly well to smooth and rough surfaces whether they’re impermeable or porous.

Put simply, it is used as a protective coating for buildings, structures and more. It’s frequently used on guttering, fences and flat roofs as a protective waterproof layer. Similarly, in the marine industry, bitumen paint is also commonly used on boat hulls to keep them watertight.

The uses of bitumen are seemingly endless but we’ll highlight a few below:

The Benefits of Painting with Bitumen

So, what does black bitumen paint have to offer?

It provides UV resistance to prevent surfaces from deteriorating as a result of exposure to the sun. It has amazing waterproof properties that protect surfaces from oxidation, rot and mould. It also dries in roughly 2-4 hours but we always recommend waiting at least 12 hours or overnight for the second coat to dry completely.

Ultimately, it can prolong the life of your surfaces and last for up to 15 years depending on the quality of the paint and the surface it is painted on. For example, the paint will last the longest on porous surfaces like wood.

In short, bitumen paint provides:

  • UV protection
  • Waterproofing
  • Fast drying time
  • Longevity

How to use Bitumen Paint

Black Bitumen Paint adheres well to most surfaces and is easy to apply using a brush or sprayer. A thorough application helps to extend the lifespan of your surface by protecting it against weathering and corrosion.

As with all paints and coatings, their adhesion and performance relies heavily on preparation. Preparation for bitumen paints should always include ensuring that the surface is clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, rust and dust before you begin painting.
