Is it suitable for waterproofing the inside and bottom edges of a new wooden planter?
The planter will stand on soil, I was thinking of two good coats on the inside and bottom edges and slightly up the outside at the bottom. The planter will be used for flowers etc, not for edible plants.
The bostik Black Waterproofing paint is a solvent based bitumen paint designed for exterior applications to materials such as wood, concrete and metalwork.. The product can be used in suitable below ground applications where it will be in contact with soil and it will not affect plants in general. If applying to a wooden planter, it will first need to be dry, then apply two coats of the product, allowing the first coat to dry before applying the second and then ensure that the application is thoroughly dry ( i.e all the solvent has gone from the product ) before using with soil / plants.

Is this "bitumastic paint"?
Is it suitable to coat steel beam on exterior wall?
The Bostik Cementone Bituminous Paint Black is a solvent based bitumen paint designed for application to materials such as wood, concrete and metalwork in suitable exterior applications. The product can be applied to a steel beam in general to provide a waterproof coating. However although the product is waterproof, ( which will stop liquid water ingress, it is not damp-proof so it will allow water vapour molecules to pass through. Consequently the beam will require periodical maintenance to account for this. If the application is not accessible when in service, then the product will not be suitable in such a case.
