Bitumen Mastic super astar 417

BITUMEN super astar 417 is a trowel-applied, black, heavily-filled bituminous compound with added fibres for reinforcement. The product forms a surface skin, but the mass below remains soft to allow for moderate movement. Suitable for sealing and filling holes in mastic asphalt, roofing felt, corrugated iron, metal guttering and downpipes.

Uses of bitumen mastic super Astar 417

Bitumen mastic has a wide range of applications in the construction industry. Here are some common uses:

  1. Roofing: Bitumen mastic is commonly used in roofing applications to seal and repair leaks, fill gaps and cracks, and bond roofing materials together.

  2. Concrete Repair: It is used to repair cracks and holes in concrete surfaces, such as floors and walls.

  3. Waterproofing: It is used to create a waterproof seal around pipes, vents, and other penetrations through walls and roofs.

  4. Metal Bonding: It is used to bond metal sheets and panels together in roofing and cladding applications.

  5. Masonry: Bitumen mastic is used to bond masonry materials, such as bricks and blocks, together in construction applications.

  6. Sealing: Bitumen mastic is used to seal joints, seams, and gaps in various materials, such as wood, metal, and concrete.

It is important to use the correct type of bitumen mastic for each application and to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully for best results. Protective equipment, such as gloves and eye protection, should be worn during application, and the product should be stored in a cool, dry place away from sources of ignition.

Characteristics and advantage of Astar 417

  • Fast drying
  • Fibre-reinforced
  • Suitable for use with all bituminous surface coatings
  • Remains flexible for long periods

As with all surface coatings, preparation of the surface is of great importance and will influence the degree of adhesion obtained and the life of the coating.

Preparation of surface before usage

All surfaces must be sound, stable and thoroughly clean and dry. Metal surfaces should be wire brushed to remove rust. Where long term protection is re- quired an initial treatment of a rust-inhibitive product such as red lead or zinc phosphate should be used. Loose or blistered paint should be removed. New gal- vanised surfaces should be roughened with a wire brush or treated with a proprietary etch primer. If the surface is still dusty after preparation, or coated in weathered bitumen, prime with BLACK JACK® BITU- MEN PRIMER and allow to dry. To assist in cold weath- er application, store the material in a warm room overnight prior to use.

Application of Bitumen Mastic Astar 417

BITUMEN MASTIC is ready for use and should not be thinned. Apply by steel trowel or putty knife.

Crack and holes sealer

Force the compound into the crack, but finish with a 25mm band at a 3mm thickness running the length of the crack. For large cracks and holes, apply the compound over the area to be treated and embed a closely woven glass fibre membrane into the compound to overlap the crack or hole by 50mm. Allow to dry and then apply a second coat, fully covering the reinforcing membrane.

Corrugated Iron and fiber cement sheeting

Tighten loose hook bolts and trowel around with mastic. Remove loose screws, re-bed screws and washers in bitumen mastic super Astar 417 and tighten. Top seal in further mastic and to a smooth finish. If the sheet is cracked, clean and prime with bitumen primer and apply a bandage strip of glass fibre em-bedded in the mastic. When dry, overcoat with blac
