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.
Products can be applied with a paint brush, a push broom, a low nap roller with a long handle, or a Commercial Airless Sprayer. In addition, you will need Ames® Peel & Stick Seam Tape™, and scissors or a utility knife. For larger commercial jobs, we recommend using a commercial grade airless sprayer. Graco, Bulldog or Titan brands work well. Click Here for Sprayer Specifications
Standard product coverage on smooth surface is 1-2 gallons per 100 sq. ft. More than one coat is recommended. More coats will lead to a longer lifespan for your roof.
Weather & Drying Guidelines:
Products are best applied between 50° 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 2-8 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.
Clean-up, Storage, and Disposal:
Clean tools and small spills with water. Store unused product in its original container, tightly sealed and protected from freezing. Dispose of this product in accordance with local, state, or federal requirements.
