Colbond Multi forms a uniform film of polymer modified bitumen on both horizontal and vertical faces forming a strong adhesive bond between bituminous overlay and the existing surface. In addition, the application of Colbond Multi also improves the waterproofing of the road pavement. Colbond Multi, when fully broken, prevents ‘pick-up’ on the wheels, tracks or tyres of the paver/delivery vehicles and prevents disbanding/debonding of the overlay during subsequent service life when subjected to traffic stresses.

Applied to vertical edges Colbond Multi replaces conventional hot pour bitumen.

Where to use?

  • Carriageways
  • Footways
  • Car parks


Surface to be treated must be free from detritus, standing water, loose materials and oil spillage.


Prior to application Colbond Multi should be circulated thoroughly.

Colbond Multi should be applied at 0.52L/m2 to achieve the recommended 0.35kg/m2 residual spread rate stated in BS594987 Clause 5.5 application of bond coats and 6.8 Joints. Vehicular traffic should be kept off the treated area until the emulsion has fully broken, colour changes from brown to black, then the overlay should be applied. It is recommended that Colbond Multi is applied when the ground temperature is 5°C and rising or <40°C.

Humidity should preferably not exceed 70%, however, Colbond Multi can be applied in higher humidity but this will prolong the break time.

Colbond Multi should be applied at 85°C using a mechanical spray tanker calibrated to BS1707 (Hot binder distributors for road surface dressing).


It is recommended that the Colbond Multi is applied at coverage rates specified in BS594987 Clause 5.5 Application of bond coats and 6.8 Joints.
