Bitum’srevolutionary
spray-on sealing system
Slide 3
What is What is Flexigum Flexigum??
Flexigumis a non-toxic cold spray
emulsion of bitumen and latex, where the
bitumen is the sealant. The latex carries the
bitumen and gives it the high elasticity.
Slide 4
High Quality, Developed by High Quality, Developed by
Experts Experts
•• Flexigum Flexigum technology was
developed in-house by Bitum’s
own R&D department
• Thoroughly tested and proven
sealing technology
• Every batch is sprayed on a special
testing site to ensure quality of
final product.
Slide 5
Flexigum FlexigumProduction Production
• Flexigumis produced in a very advanced,
hi-tech bitumen emulsion production
plant under the strictest quality control
regulations and testing.
• Flexigummeets international standards
of quality.
Slide 6
The The Flexigum FlexigumMethod Method
• The bitumen-latex emulsion together with
a coagulating agent are sprayed
simultaneously through two nozzles in the
spray gun onto the targeted surface.
• Coagulation is instant and a flexible,
homogenous film is formed.
Slide 7
Features Features
• Eliminates air pollution and
risk of fire
• Seamless method of sealing
• Can be used in a multi-layer
application
• Can withstand extreme temperature
changes —from 212

Features Features
Latex-reinforced compound
makes it unusually elastic
Slide 9
Features Features
• Durable and safe
• Stable, presents no
risk of damage due
to overheating
Slide 10
Advantages Advantages
• Easy and efficient
application process.
• Produces a thick,
continuous, seamless,
elastic coat
Requires less scaffolding
- can be sprayed as high
as 4 m. (13 ft.)
Slide 11
Advantages Advantages
Can be applied on uneven
surfaces, reducing surface
preparation time.
Slide 12
Advantages Advantages
• Only short impregnation of
concrete is required as damp
surfaces do not affect the
adhesion.
• Excellent
adhesion to
metal inserts
used in
reinforced
concrete.
Slide 13
Application Process Application Process
• Requires small crew –
2 people can spray up to 1200 m

Dual hoses are laid from the
bitumen-latex emulsion as well
as from the coagulant.
During the spraying process the
two compounds are mixed in the air
and the Flexigumis formed.
