What is Bitex - Overview?
Bitex is a liquid solvent-based primer that can be applied to to worn asphalt or concrete to improve the bonding of thermoplastic road markings and hot-applied 'anti-skid' or coloured surfacing materials prior to application.
Where can Bitex be used?
Bitex is used to improve the adhesion of thermoplastic materials and hot-applied 'anti-skid' or coloured surfacing materials to concrete, worn asphalt or other bituminous surfaces.
Prior to a Bitex application ensure that the substrate is clean, dry, dust and contamination free. A Bitex application can be carried out using a brush, roller or by spray. Never pour Bitex directly to the substrate but ensure the entire installation area is covered with a thin layer of Bitex primer and leave to dry thoroughly prior to the application of thermoplastic materials.
Bitex is a solvent-based liquid primer that is sold in 25 litre drums and is available in black or clear variants. One drum of Bitex will approximately cover 300m2 at a wet film thickness of between 66 -83 microns. Bitex has a low viscosity that facilitates deep penetration into substrates.
