Bituthene® 8000 HC is an advanced self-adhesive, solar reflective, flexible water and vapour proof membrane, designed for sub-structures in hot climates. It can be used horizontally or vertically to protect basements and other critical sub-structures from the effects of aggressive ground conditions and water tables.


Monolithic concrete blinding is preferred which should be regular, smooth and free of loose aggregate and sharp protrusions.


Brush the membrane onto the surface to ensure good initial bond and exclude air.

Joint laps:

Minimum laps of 50 mm are recommended.
