What is Ames®  Iron Coat™?

Ames® Iron Coat  industrial strength roof paint is a thick, high quality rubber and acrylic elastomeric roof coating especially formulated for metal. Designed for waterproofing and maintaining commercial and residential metal roofs, as well as mobile home and RV roofs. It has a special affinity for metal with excellent bonding capabilities over rust and oxidized aluminum. Ames® Iron Coat is easy to apply. Ready to use – no mixing required. Simply roll, brush or spray on to completely seal troublesome leaks. It dries rapidly to form a cool white, up to 500% elastic, watertight roof membrane that expands and contracts with the roof surface. Ames® Iron Coat stays cool and resists cracking and peeling. It reflects up to 98% of the sun’s rays to reduce roof temperature by as much as 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Developed for cold and wet weather. Formulated to resist fungus, mold and mildew. Ames® Iron Coat remains flexible from -30 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Ames® Iron Coat is a superior metal roof coating. Call our experts for other roofing products and industrial coatings.

Estimated Coverage:
Standard product coverage on a smooth surface is 100 sq. ft. per gallon per coat (est. 10 ml.) More than one coat is recommended, more coats equal longer life.

Read all label instructions before beginning. Always run a test patch first in an inconspicuous area to ensure that proper adhesion and drying occurs and the product works to your satisfaction. Be sure surfaces are clean and dry before the coating application.  Mask all sensitive areas before starting.

Weather and Drying Guidelines:
Ames’® Iron Coat™ is best applied between 50 and 80°F (10 to 26­­°C) on warm dry surfaces. Apply when the streets are dry, the sun is in the sky and no inclement weather is forecast. Begins to dry in 1-2 hours and can take up to 8 hours or longer to fully dry. If possible, a minimum of 24 hours between coats is recommended for best results. Low temperatures, high humidity and evenings and morning dew will require increased drying/curing time.
