Introduction

When cured Leotak forms a thin uniform film of bitumen on the road surface which gives an adhesive bond between a bituminous overlay and an existing surface. For best results, tack coating is strongly recommended when performing such tasks as overlaying with hot rolled asphalt, macadam or when patching or carrying out inlaid work. Leotak adheres exceptionally well, even in damp conditions. The overlay is held securely in place and the entry of water between road pavement courses is hindered.

Where to use?

  • Carriageways
  • Footways
  • Car parks

Preparation

Surface to be treated must be free from detritus, standing water, loose materials and oil spillage.

Application

Leotak should be sprayed or hand applied between 0.3 and 0.6 L/m² (depending on the texture, porosity etc. of the surface) to give the thinnest film consistent with complete coverage.

Vehicular traffic should be kept off the treated area until the emulsion has fully broken, colour changes from brown to black. When emulsion has fully broken then apply the overlay.

Coverage

  • 1 x 25kg container should cover approximately 40m².
  • 1 x 200kg drum should cover approximately 320m².
