Description

TarPlastic® is a cold applied bituminous caulking compound with mineral fillers in a volatile solvent to retain its plasticity. It is available in a putty form. TarPlastic® remains plastic for a considerable length of time. The skin and interior harden to some extent after application. It conforms to the requirement of IS : 1580 – 1991.

Application

  • It is ideal for use in situation where certain degree of expansion, contraction and vibration is expected, like around J Hooks used for fixing Asbestos / GI sheets. It can also be used for caulking various types of roofs and masonry walls, including
  • Fully plugging gaps in tiles caused by sagging of battens or otherwise in case of tiled roofs.
  • Filling minor cracks / gaps in terraced roofs or other locations.

Advantages

  • Cold applied and ready to use. Does not require specialised handling for application.
  • Does not creep or flow when applied on vertical or sloping surfaces.
  • Remains plastic for a considerable time and, therefore, can accommodate a good degree of expansion, contraction and vibration.

Application Methodology

  • In case of GI / Asbestos roof sheets, apply TarPlastic® into the overlapping joints with knife and spatula after cleaning rusted joints and applying a coat of ShaliTex® Primer.
  • To fix J Hooks for Asbestos or other roofing sheets, top of the holding bolts should be covered with TarPlastic® and a limpet washer fixed as cover.
  • Locate the cracks and then widen them to a V section, about 25 mm deep.
  • Brush out the loose particles from the crack and dust it clean.
  • Paint the cracks lightly with ShaliTex® Primer.
