Spray seal bitumen is a thin layer of liquid that is applied on the surface of a building to prevent leaks. It is then cured by the application of a heat gun to make it hard and thick enough to resist leaks. The coating can also be applied on the exterior walls of a building, but this needs special care because the heat can cause cracks in the surface of the structure. This coating is often referred to as a fire retardant and has proven to be quite effective against the growth of bacteria and fungi.
Spray seal bitumen – Have you ever seen how a road is bituminized?
One of the advantages of using spray seal bitumen on a building is that it can be applied to various surfaces of the building and is relatively inexpensive compared to other sealants. In addition, the building will usually need only a coat of paint.
This means that instead of having to replace all the existing siding material that is already on the building, you only have to replace the coat. Spray seal bitumen is also easy to apply. However, it is recommended that the coating should be applied over a smooth and flat surface to prevent the air bubbles from leaking through.
