Polykote

General Info

PRODUCT

Polykote is a rubberized acrylic latex, elastomeric liquid coating.  It is bright white to reflect the sun’s rays, keeping the coating cool and flexible.  Bonds to most surfaces, ideal use is for roofing repairs, mobile homes, grain bins and trailer roof protection.  This heavy duty elastomeric liquid coating maintenance system includes the finest line of environmentally safe products.

CLEANING

With a scraper remove all loose coating or caulking from the area to be coated.  In areas where there are signs of rust or oxidation, clean thoroughly with a wire brush.

The surface must be clean of all loose material.  Remove all oil or grease and other foreign matter with mineral spirits or other similar solvents.  New galvanized or aluminum metal should be scuffed, sanded or wire brushed for maximum adhesion.

Be sure your roof is dry before applying Polykote.

Polykote can be applied with either a soft brush or roller.  Cut down the bristles on your paintbrush to approximately 1/2 their length.  This will allow you to apply the Polykote to a more desirable thickness.  You must apply an even coat using one gallon of Polykote for each 40 to 50 square feet of area to be covered.

For cracks and seams, embed the precut seam tape into the first Polykote layer, ensuring a smooth surface free of wrinkles.  Allow the Polykote coating to dry approximately 24 hours, and then apply a second coat.

By following these procedures and using the proper amount of Polykote, you will get maximum weather protection, insulative heat reflection and years of protection for your investment.
