This traditional rough open weave hessian fabric uses bitumen to achieve an extremely watertight protective covering. The black bitumen coating lays in-between the hessian fabric and the brown backing paper to create a fabric that will withstand vigorous and repetitive outdoor use. Bitumen is the English term for asphalt, a naturally occurring material that can be refined into a viscous semi liquid used for road production.
Like our other jute hessian products, the hessian in this eco friendly fabric is completely biodegradable, as is the paper backing, of course the bitumen will stick around a little longer. The waterproofing properties of bitumen are relied upon to protect boats, to seal roofing and to coat buildings. Alone the bitumen will suffice as a very efficient sealant but adding the hessian fabric on top of a layer of bitumen creates an even tougher surface area that can then be wrapped around or placed near the area that needs protecting, rather than painting bitumen on items.
