POLAROOF AC - Acrylic Waterproofing Coating
POLAROOF AC is a premium quality, waterproof, tough, elastic coating with unique properties that extend the lifespan of most roofs. The technology behind the formulation of this material uses acrylic chemistry and advanced mineral design to create a composite coating that forms a shield to protect against water penetration, corrosion and stress fatigue from thermal cycling. Long-term waterproofing is maintained by tenacious adhesion to the substrate and flexibility over a wide temperature range without cracking at low temperatures or melting or flowing at high temperatures.
Can be used over asphalt BUR, concrete,glass, insulation, metals, modified bitumen, plywood, PUF, single-ply, slate/tile and others.
Surfaces must be dry, free of dirt, loose debris, oils, greases or any substance that could interfere with bond. All repairs of damage or defects must be made prior to application.
POLAROOF AC is an alkaline water-based product. Polaroof AC is applied straight out of the can after 2 minutes of gentle low speed mixing or stirring. Apply the product using brush, roller or spray technique. Apply in two coats to a uniform wet film thickness of about 24 mils per coat to insure complete coverage on the 2nd coat. Apply the 2nd coat after the 1st coat has set (about 2-4 hours). For spray applications, use a 30:1 ratio Graco with a #36 tip or similar equipment. For soft brush or high nap roller application, use light pressure and coat in a cross direction to the 1st coat. For additional information, contact our Technical Department.
Clean tools and equipment with water before the POLAROOF AC dries; after that solvent cleaning may be necessary.
Do not apply to frozen or saturated surfaces. Do not apply if the temperature is predicted to drop below 35°F within 4 hours after application is completed. Do not apply if rain is forecast within 4 hours of completion of application. Surface must remain at least 5°F above dew point during the application and curing process. Protect POLAROOF AC from freezing. In roofing areas where water is likely to pond and be present for more than 1 day after precipitation, it is advisable to topcoat thePOLAROOF AC with CLEARCOAT 44 or CLEARCOAT AQ. Apply the CLEARCOAT in these areas at the rate of 1 gallon per 200 square feet.
Read the container label warning and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for important health and safety information prior to the use of this product.
If a surface becomes dirty or stained, wash with a mild soapy water solution. If an area becomes nicked or cut, recoat with POLAROOF AC. Clean tools and equipment with water before the POLAROOF AC dries; after that solvent cleaning may be necessary.
