    Bradite Solar Reflective Bitumen is a gloss coating intended for substrates which are dry and free of contamination. It works by furnishing a tough hard-wearing film over the substrate that provides excellent water repellency. Silver in colour, the coating offers solar reflective properties on:

    • Steel
    • Non-ferrous metals
    • Concrete
    • Brick
    • Asphalt
    • Felt roofing

    With the exception of fish ponds and drinking water, this coating is ideal for water immersion systems, such as water storage, and many a usage within industrious environments can be found with this in mind.

    Manufactured under the auspices of an ISO 9001:2008 quality & ISO 14001:2004 environmental management systems.

    If you don't require the solar reflective component, you can choose the black version, please see Bradite Bitumen Coat/Finish (BB58)
