Product Description

This solvent based bituminous black paint dries to form a weatherproof film. It widely used in the agricultural and marine sectors.

Tips for applying. Ensure all surfaces are clean and dry and repair any cracks. Treat fungal or algal growth with Abicide Solution as directed. Stir well to apply by brush, roller or spray. Over coating with conventional solvent based paints will result in black bleeding through. To protect your surface from heat and UV light damage, you might want to consider coating with Carbosil Bitumen Aluminium

Proper surface preparation is essential for the success of any protective coating system. Before you begin ensure the area is free from any dust, oil, grease, old coatings and surface contaminants.

For maximum protection prime bare surfaces with Palatine Zinc Rich Primer or Palatine Metal Primer.
For non-ferrous metals use Palatine Fast Dry etching primer.
Rub down previously gloss painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly.


Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C), dry conditions.

Conventional or HVLP spray.
Roller, Brush or Dip.

When the Black Bitumen is first applied it may have a gloss appearance, however as it is exposed to the sun and fully dries it will get duller and have a matt finish

  5. ABK (verified owner)

    Ordered a 5L tin. Delivery was very fast and the product is excellent.

    I applied one coat to one side of 8 off 6′ X 6′ fence panels and still have some left in the tin. The colour is great and I will be ordering more to complete the project. It’s time consuming to apply as the consistency is treacle like. The following day the overnight rain was sat on the fence panels and had not penetrated the wood. I have 100% confidence it will protect the wood and look great.

    I wore old cloths, gloves, eye protection and a mask when applying this product as its pretty strong stuff. Plenty of ventilation required when applying.

    I have no hesitation in recommending this excellent product.
