BITUTHENE® Post-Applied Waterproofing

Proven performance from the world’s most trusted post-applied waterproofing membrane.

Overview

A time-tested, field-proven product.

Plaza decks, inverted roofs, green roofs and elevated decks. Basement walls. Tunnels, metro stations and infrastructure products. For each of these applications and more, there's a BITUTHENE® product developed by GCP Applied Technologies. The BITUTHENE® waterproofing system is the most trusted post-applied waterproofing membrane. Their effectiveness has been proven time and again in countless projects. Long-lasting, versatile and easy to install, the BITUTHENE® waterproofing system gets the job done.

Flexible and powerful

BITUTHENE® is available in a number of grades to suit your project needs. Supplied as an easily applied sheet, it can be cold-applied at temperatures as low as 25°F and can be placed on a variety of concrete surfaces. Its robust waterproofing properties, combined with its ease of application, results in a contractor-friendly product that adds value to buildings.

Apply easily, anywhere

Although the chemical properties of BITUTHENE® make it suitable for a variety of applications, we have added mechanical innovations to further its ease of use and long-term viability.

  • RIPCORD® design lets workers easily split release liner for ease of positioning
  • Cold-applied membrane avoids risk of fire during installation due to the fact that flame and/or hot works are not required
  • Self-adhesive overlaps avoid leaky seams and eliminate the need for specialized equipment or training
  • When used with primer, BITUTHENE® can easily be applied to damp or green concrete during time-sensitive construction, saving time and money for the project team

World-class Technical Services

Buildings change and settle over time, but BITUTHENE® accommodates those changes.

  • Robust film and specially formulated adhesive provide maximum water protection
  • Flexible yet strong membrane provides crack bridging capabilities and moves with concrete, accommodating minor settling
  • Controlled thickness ensures lack of variation

With so many versatile applications, there’s a BITUTHENE® solution for nearly every project and design. We provides world-class technical services in order to make those limits even smaller.
