Super Elasto Barrier 275 gallon tote

What is Ames® Super Elasto-Barrier®?

Ames® Super Elasto-Barrier® is a water-based, liquid dual-rubber coating used primarily for roof and deck waterproofing applications. It also works well as a primer for other Ames products. It significantly out performs asphalt emulsions making it especially effective in saving old tar roof systems. Super-Elasto Barrier®  stretches up to 1000% to expand and contract with the surface. It flows into cracks and crevices as a liquid and sets up as a durable rubber to seal leaks wherever they occur. Ready to use – no mixing required.  Easy water cleanup, environmentally friendly. This product is UV sensitive and must be topcoated if exposed to sunlight.

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. All major cracks, joints and seams should be caulked with Blue Max trowel-grade liquid rubber. Do not use a silicone caulk. Large cracks may be filled with a sandable filler. Follow seam taping instructions. Mask all sensitive areas before starting.

Estimated Coverage: Standard product coverage on a smooth surface is one to two gallons per 100 square feet. More than one coat is recommended, more coats equal longer life.

Weather & Drying Guidelines: Ames® Super Elasto-Barrier® is best applied between 40° to 90° F (10° to 32° C) on warm dry surfaces. Apply when the streets are dry, the sun is in the sky and no inclement weather is forecast. Starts to dry in 1-2 hours, depending on thickness of application and weather; cures in 24 hours. Low temperatures, high humidity and evening and morning dew will require increased drying/curing time.
