Mastic roofing - how to protect yourself against leakage ?

application spectrum

At the core of the component composition of the material is a mixture of bitumen with various additives.To avoid precipitate formed in the domeshivayut anionic or cationic surfactants.Also can be added asbestos, talc, Talkomagnezit, limestone and chalk.Mastic is excellent for waterproofing, sealing, priming and other construction work.With great success she used to work on the facade.The roofing mastic used for insulation against moisture, surface reconstruction.

Note!Mastic can be successfully used both for internal and external works.

The main advantage of this material is a long service life of structures that have been treated with them.It is very easy and undemanding to use.Thus, it can be used in any climatic conditions, at temperatures varying from -30 to +80 degrees Celsius.The main advantages of the following:

  • Creating a seamless elastic and durable coating;
  • High performance waterproofing;
  • can handle any surface;
  • long service life, even in areas with stagnant water;
  • High mechanical stability;
  • No shrinkage;
  • High maintainability.

Varieties material

Bitumen roofing differs in its components.In the first place, the differences relate to the content of the bitumen itself.Since N1 mastic asphalt is 98.5%, N2 - 94.7%, N3 - 91%.They also differ in the components forming part of that help reduce costs of the material.Bituminous mastic is divided into several types: bituminous, lime-bitumen, latex, putty insulation, kukersolnye, butyl rubber and oil.

mastic type depends on the filler which is added into it.Each type of material has its own conditions for the application.For example, rubber and mastic oil has wonderful qualities of hardiness, but to apply them only at zero temperature. Important!Before using mastic should be familiar with the conditions of its application.

material, which is added to the varnish-kukersol becomes significantly better as compared to conventional mastic.For example, a 2 mm layer of the material equivalent to 4 millimeters simple bitumen.Such a mixture can be prepared in your own home.To this end the bitumen is melted, and added to the rosin varnish therein.However, the price of such homemade pastes to be higher than purchased.For the repair and the device of the roof, this material is ideal.

Mastic roofing on

practice Bituminous mastic for roofing requires special preparation of the surface for its application.For this treatment area is cleaned of old coatings, dust and dirt.After such a serious intervention into the structure of the surface is recommended to be primed.If the material - metal or wood, it will still have and degrease.For the most optimum thickness of the roof mastic applied to three millimeters.Consumption depends on the cracks that will be stopped and the area of ​​work done.

Important!Mastic - this chemical, so work with it you need to take protective measures.

to change the consistency of the mass can be used solvent, toluene and mineral spirits.Before applying weight on the roof elements is thoroughly mixed.Store the material in a metal box should be away from possible sources of ignition.Please note that when using mastic can reach temperatures up to 150 degrees Celsius, so we should not forget about the rules of safe operation.
