•Bonding roofing felts to metal, timber, concrete and asphalt
•Bonding chippings to flat roofs
Method of Application
Apply with a stiff brush, mop or squeegee. Store in a warm room overnight prior to use to avoid thickening in cold weather.
Before applying Bitumen Roofing Felt Adhesive surfaces must be free from oil, dirt, dust, loose debris, mold or fungus.
Felt Adhesive should be applied to the surface and left for 15 to 30 minutes (depending upon drying conditions) in order to develop its full tackiness. The felt should then be placed into the wet adhesive film carefully, rubbing or rolling each section down to ensure maximum contact with the adhesive and to expel air trapped between the surface and the felt.
Use Rye Oil’s Bitumen Primer when applying to concrete surfaces that are porous. Ensure that the primer is completely dry before applying the adhesive.
Approximately 2m² per litre.
Cleaned with white spirit. Sand should be used to absorb any spillages.

Health & Safety
Bitumen Roofing Felt Adhesive is solvent based and gives off an inflammable vapour. The solvent may have a narcotic effect if inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Dermatitis can occur in extreme cases. Use dry powder, carbon dioxide (CO2), foam, sand or earth in case of fire. Never use water and it will spread the fire. The following precautions are advised:
1. Wear protective clothing
2. Avoid smoking, hot lights, naked flames or creating sparks
3. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and non protective clothing. Remove skin contamination immediately with a proprietary hand cleaner and wash with soap and water.
4. When working with the product, until it has dried, ensure that the area is well ventilated thereby avoiding build up of solvent vapour.
