DanaBit

Oxidised Bitumen Membrane

DanaBit is our value for money (VFM) product which has been certified by ISIRI type
BOF membranes for use in various climates.

The multi-layered design provides good pliability, tensile strength, workability and resistance to Middle Eastern climatic conditions.
The bitumen is a catalytically air blown asphalt, which prevents the bitumen to flow in hightemperature (up to 90 degrees)
as well as its flexibility at low temperatures (between 0 to +5 degrees).
DanaBit waterproofing membrane consists of a various types of reinforcements, impregnated and coated on both sides with oxidised bitumen.

Reinforcements

Single Layer: Polyester, compound base, Glass Fiber
Double Layer: Glass Fiber reinforced Polyester.
*DanaBit is produced in different kinds of
reinforcements and thicknesses based on your requirements.

DanaShield

Bituminous Waterproofing Membrane

DanaShield proprietary waterproofing compound is formulated with Oxidised
bitumen and Polymer modified bitumen.

Polymer supplements such as PP with oxidised bitumen result in performance improvement,
heat resistant (up to 120° c) and low temperature flexibility (up to 0°). DanaShield is a product of DanaGum‘s R&D lab with excessive research on various compounds, to innovate a new product for cold climates,
same time to open a new and competitive price range within the market. DanaShield is certified by ISIR institution,
type modified bitumen membranes with Plastic Polymer (BPP) for use in hot and tropical climates.

DanaPlast

APP modified Bitumen Membrane

DanaPlast is a superior, high performance waterproofing membrane,formulated with select bitumen,
modified with APP for greater elasticity, flexibility, and further enhanced with a blend of Polypropylene(PP) for high heat resistance
(up to 120 degrees), greater elongation and low temperature flexibility
(upto -5 degrees). Hence, it is the cause of optimum adhesion and
flexibility of modified bitumen.
The existence of different types of reinforcing layers, increase tenacity and dimensional stability againstfatigue and rupture forces.
DanaPlast has been certified by ISIRI with the national number of 3885-1 in “prefabricated waterproofingmembranes with modified polymer plastic (BPP)” category, and is granted for manufacturing and marketing of the product.

Reinforcements

Single Layer: Polyester, compound base, Glass Fiber
Double Layer: Glass Fiber reinforced Polyester.
*Danaplast is produced in different kinds of
reinforcements and thicknesses based on your requirements.

General Data

Nominal Roll Length: 10m
Nominal Roll Width: 1m
Nominal Thikness: 2-5 mm

OUTSTANDING FEATURES

Applicable on all sloping surfaces: on flat, vertical and curved surfaces.

Excellent product for all weather conditions.

Lightweight: prevents any excessive weight on the roof or the building

structure.

Good resistance to fatigue and tear.

Longer lasting product (up to fifteen years)

BITUMENE

Q. What is an APP modified bituminous membrane?

A. It is a multi-layer waterproofing membrane made of APP modified bitumen.

Q. What is the membrane made of?

A centre carrier in reinforced polyester (extremely strong and with excellent stretching performance). Also available in compound base Glass Fiber
and Glass Fiber reinforced polyester for double layer membranes.

Two layers of polymer-modified bitumen (for waterproofing)

A top layer which is made of one of the followings: polyethylene, aluminum, sand and mineral slate flake.

A bottom easy melting film (to facilitate the sticking during the torching application)

Q. How do you apply APP membranes?

A. APP membranes are laid by torch-on application. A flame contact causes melting on the surface of the membrane which is then pressed to the substrate with overlaps from adjoining membranes.

Q. What kind of surface do you require to fix the membrane?

On all slopping surfaces: Both flat and high slope and on curved surfaces

On different types of laying surfaces: Concrete laying surfaces, site-cast or prefabricated on metal or wooden roofing and etc.

For the most varied uses: Roofs, reservoirs, basements, tunnels and car parks

Q. What size is the roll?

A. The roll is 1m wide x 10m long.
Note: Different role sizes are also available on request.

MEMBRANE FAQ

Q. What are the weights of the steel drums?

A. 170kg, 190kg and 210kg.

Q. How can I tell if I am buying Mixed Bitumen?

A. One good starting point is the price of Bitumen. If the price of Bitumen you are receiving is by 5 % below other supplier’s average price stop and take a closer look at your Supplier.

Q. What is “Mixed Bitumen” or “Blended Bitumen”?

A. Mixed Bitumen can be any Bitumen like product which is partially Bitumen and resembles the properties of Road Bitumen but lacking its performance and strength. For Example, Bitumen derrived from mazut suitable for roofing can be blended into high quality road bitumen. The value of mazut based Bitumen is nearly half of high quality bitumen.

Q. How many metric tons of Bitumen can fit in a 2`0 Feet Container?

A. If 170 Kg drums are stuffed in a 20 Feet Container, 18 Metric Tons can fit in a 20 feet container

Q. How many Drums fit in a 20 Feet Container?

A. 110 New Steel Drums can fit in a 20 feet container.

Q. How many New Steel Drums can fit in a 40 Feet Container ?

A. On the Average 125-140 Drums Can fit in a 40 feet Container making them not cost effective to transport Bitumen within.

Q. What are some modes of Payment for Bitumen?

A. Payments can be made via TT or Letter of Credit.
