DISSCO 560 Plastic Cement is an asphalt base, bituminous cement of medium
trowel consistency, manufactured from soft, durable asphalts blended with
industrial grade solvents and combined with selected asbestos fibers and
mineral fillers. Its formulation includes additives which make the DISSCO
560 Plastic Cement uniform in consistency, moisture-repellent and workable
without pulling or drawing. DISSCO 560 Plastic Cement sets up to form
a tough, continuous moisture-proof film while retaining its pliability
for many years. This enables it to expand and contract with changes in
temperature and to conform to movements in other materials.
DISSCO 560 Plastic Cement is a professional grade plastic cement for
the application of bituminous flashings on all asphalt built-up roofs.
It can also be used as a cold-applied waterproofing cement for patching
chimneys, flagpoles, vent pipes, skylites, gutters, flashing, and for
filling expansion and other joints in concrete or brick. Its excellent
bonding quality makes it ideal for use as well against metal, glass, stone,
or virtually any clean dry surface. It will set up without pulling away
from joints or cracks and will not bleed, blister or sag.
DISSCO 560 Plastic Cement is also an excellent all-purpose cement and
patching material for the waterproofing or dampproofing contractor. DISSCO
560 may be used as a patching compound for the sealing of concrete form
ties prior to the application of dampproofing or waterproofing. When used
with a reinforcing fabric or felt the DISSCO 560 will provide a waterproof
seal when used for patching cold joints, wall perforations, honeycomb
areas and many other areas where a below-grade waterproof seal is desired.
DISSCO 560 is ready to use directly from the container, no thinning or
heating required. Any surface to which DISSCO 560 Plastic Cement is applied
should be clean, dry and free of any loose material, which would prevent
adhesion. When applied to metal, no priming is necessary although care
must be taken that the metal is free of any other coating or solvent base
materials that may impair adhesion.
Coverage will depend upon end use, but most applications on flat surfaces
will require a continuous film of 1/16 inch average thickness. At this
rate one gallon will cover approximately 25 to 30 square feet.
