Bitumen Trowel Mastic 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.
Quick Find Code
BLACK JACK BITUMEN MASTIC is ready for use and should not be thinned. Apply by steel trowel or putty knife.
CRACKS AND HOLES
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/FIBRE CEMENT SHEETING
Tighten loose hook bolts and trowel around with mastic. Remove loose screws, re-bed screws and washers in BLACK JACK BITUMEN MASTIC and tighten. Top seal in further mastic and trowel to a smooth finish. If the sheet is cracked, clean and prime with BLACK JACK Bitumen/FLASHING Primer and apply a bandage strip of glass fibre embedded in the mastic. When dry, overcoat with BLACK JACK BITUMEN /FLASHING PRIMER followed by BLACK JACK BITUMEN PAINT. Use the same technique for sealing side and end laps in corrugated sheeting.
