Is this bitumen based
Is it safe to put this on top of a bitumen based liquid dpm I used from Wickes
The Cementone Aquaprufe Flexible Damp-proofer & Waterproofer 5 Ltr is a water based rubber bitumen primarily designed to act as a damp-proof membrane within the construction of a floor or an external wall. This product is compatible with the Wickes product and so consequently it can be applied to it and will bond to it as long as the correct application instructions are followed.

Levelling compound over the top
I am tiling a damp concrete floor, can I use this product on the floor then use a self leveling compound over the top before tiling?
Thank you for your recent enquiry relating to our product.
Unfortunately I have to advise that a levelling compound can not be applied directly over the top of Aqauprufe Damp-Proofer and Waterproofer. As this product is bitumen based a levelling compound will fail to bond to it's surface.
For the Aquaprufe to perform as an effective DPM it MUST have 50mm sand/cement screed applied directly over the top.
I hope this information helps.

Is this the exact same as Bostik damp proofer?
I want to use it to stick some wooden floor down, previously i bought Cementing Aquaprufe but recently been given Bostik Damp proofer in its place.
The Cementone Aquaprufe Flexible Damp-Proofer & Waterproofer 5 Ltr is now known as Bostik Damp-proofer & Waterproofer but is exactly the same product inside. The Cementone range in general has been rebranded to the Bostik name and so some of the names are slightly different as well as the livery but the products themselves in the tins have not changed.
