Exterior Bitumen, Butyl and EPDM Rubbers

Substrate Characteristics
Bitumen substrata start their life as soft solvent sensitive materials but when exposed to the atmosphere for long periods, oxidise to hard solvent insensitive materials. In some circumstances however, bitumen may be overcoated with very fast evaporating solventborne paints, such as roadmarking paint. When bitumen is overcoated early in its life with a waterborne system, the bitumen will remain soft for a very long time. EPDM substrates have a high mineral oil content that may pull through solventborne paint systems, affecting the adhesion.

Surface Preparation
New Work - see Surface Preparation D803 for detailed preparation guidelines. Repaints - see Surface Preparation D87 for detailed preparation guidelines.

10e 1 Exterior Waterborne
Resene Membrane Roofing Primer (see Data Sheet D49) is recommended as the first coat as it has been designed to provide maximum adhesion to difficult hydrophobic surfaces. Ensure flat surfaces have adequate water runoff as water ponding may cause blistering. For a non-skid finish use Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path (see Data Sheet D313). For refurbishment of bitumen, see Waterproofing Membranes (17e).
