DIRECTIONS FOR USE
MIXING: Review all technical data sheets, system sheets, labels, instructions, MSDS, and Guide Specifications before mixing and applying. Mix 5 gallon (18.93 liter) pails with a variable speed drill utilizing a jiffy mixer to suspend any settled pigments until a uniform color and consistency is achieved. Mixing time will vary based on temperature and atmospheric conditions.
APPLICATION: Prior to coating any surface, be sure the coating will adhere by performing an adhesion test (ASTM D-903). Coating may be applied by brush, roller, or airless spray equipment. Do not apply when temperatures are below 40°F (4.4°C) or when precipitation is in forecast within 48 hours. In areas where the roof is subject to foot traffic, it is recommended to apply walkway pads for added protection and slip resistance. Spray application is not recommended below 50°F (10°C).
STORAGE & HANDLING: Keep containers closed and store in a dry, cool place away from heat, sparks, open flame, excessive heat, and moisture. Keep material stored above 65°F (18°C). Open containers should be blanketed with dry nitrogen before resealing. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along the ground or may be moved by ventilation and ignited by pilot lights, other flames, sparks, heaters, smoking, electric motors or other ignition sources at locations distant from the material-handling point. Never use a welding or cutting torch on or near the drum. In case of fire, use CO2, steam, dry chemicals or water fog
