Agarwal group manufactures its own bitumen based products which can be used in water proffing materials and byproducts. The products include
Bitubond is manufactured from selected grades of bitumen with mineral oils. it is of semi-liquid, creamy consistency and supplied in ready to use containers.
A 'Ready to use' waterproofing compound formulated out of special grade of oxidized bitumen, carefully blended and compounded with fibrous and inert mineral fillers and volatile solvents to keep it plastic.
It remains plastic for a considerable length of time. Although the skin and eventually the interior hardens to some extent after application, a little further change takes place after a certain plastic limit is reached. It is therefore ideal under conditions where a degree of expansion, contraction and vibration is expected.
Bituplast can be applied even by nskilled labour after a little practise. It does not cree or flow when applied on a vertical or sloping surface. it adheres firmly to most surfaces. it is ideal for sealing of cracks, crevices on the roofing decks, walls , window skills and virtually all nooks and corners where accessibility of other standard methods are generally difficult.
A general purpose anti corrosive paint which is ideally suited for protection of all types of steel structure effectively against corrosion. This paint is non-toxic and has no chemical reaction with water. hence it can be used for painting the inside of drinking water tanks. Bituminous black has paint like consistency. It can be easily and quickly applied by brush or spray and dries rapidly with glossy black finish. The resultant film is tough and elastic coating. Providing safest most efficient and strongly adhered protection against corrosion.
Bitukote is a dispersion of selected grades of bitumen in water with inert and fibrous fillers. In original form, it is dark brown in colour and on application as it sets, it turns black. Once it sets, it remains plastic and is able to accomodate movements of pipes or vessels whose thermal insulation it protects.
Bitukote when applied over thermal insulation, protects it and keeps the moisture away and maintains their thermal efficiency. It gives joint-less coating and the coating is impervious to moisture. It possess plastic qualities and can withstand vibration, temperature fluctuations and accidental shocks.
Before application of bitumen, bituminous coatings or bituminous compounds to any concrete, masonry, wooden or metal surface, a coat of liquid bituminous primer of low vicosity, which penetrates into the surface is a must.
Bituprimer, manufactured in conform to IS:3384, because of its low vapour contents, easy application, quick drying time, better bonding and low viscosity is an answer to all bituminouspriming needs.
Cable jointing boxes and busbars are to be filled with a suitable insulating material. Bitumen base filling compounds are ideal materials for cable jointing boxes, filling, impregnating and manufacture of insulating tapes.
The compound has highest degree of electrical insulation. When heated it can be poured and once it cools, it forms into a hard mass. The compound has low water vapours permeability, it is insoluable in water and subsoil chemicals. hence it gives a high performance for electrical application as it offers resistance to weathering and to chemical reactions. The compund remains stable and it neither froths nor emits excessive fumes when heated to a temperature of 80degreeC above the softening point. Where ever the compound is used, the life is prolonged of metals like copper, brass, iron, lead or aluminium, zinc, galvanized steel and their alloys because of the protective nature of compound.
