G E T C O A T E DSTRONG BY NATURE • HIGH PERFORMANCE INDUSTRIAL COATING SYSTEMRoof Surface Preparation A thoroughly cleaned roof iscritical for a long lastingapplication. Fluid Applied Reinforced Roof Systems1. The owner/installer must prepare the substrate for the roof by addressing all of theconditions outlined in this document. Examine substrates to receive new roofing. Pleasedo not proceed with the FlexRock Coating installation until unsatisfactory conditionshave been corrected appropriately.2. Make sure the substrate is free of delamination and defects (holes & other openings,tears, cuts, and open or partially opened seams).If the defects are larger than 1/8”, repair before coating application.3. Clean, dry and clear surfaces must be used to apply coatings or repair, free from dust,grease, wax, or other incompatible substances to facilitate appropriate adhesion. Ifgrease, oils or heavy contaminants are present on the roof surface, remove them with amild detergent prior to final cleaning. The use of bleach mixed with water can be used toremove algae, fungi, or vegetation. Thoroughly rinse surface and allow to dry prior tocoating.4.

STORAGE AND MIXING Natural Minerals, Hemp and Plant-base Oils in thePart A mix will separate over time.Safety glasses, gloves, and protective clothing must be worn at all times.Part A:1. It’s recommended that Part A be stored at room temperature. Noless than 32°F (0°C).2. The Part A bucket should be stored upside down for ease of mixingwhen used. Flip over several (minimum one day) days before use.Part B:1. It’s recommended that Part B be stored at temperatures between 75° to 105°F(24° to 41°C).2. Product must be kept free of moisture. Keep container closed because the product absorbs moisturefrom the air over time.Moisture in the product causes it to produce CO2 gas which may causepressure build-up inside a sealed | 800.808.0414 | info@flexrockcoatings.comFLEXROCK™ROOF COATING INSTRUCTIONS|Visit: Prepared to CoatYou will only have 30 to 40 minutes (See curing estimates chart) to apply your coatingmaterial (after Part A and Part B are mixed together) to the surfaces before thecoating material starts to harden.In order to begin coating, the substrate must be dry which is generally not achievablewithout having the dew point temperature being at least 5°C or 10°F below thesubstrate temperature. Application temperature should be 45°F and above.When you finish mixing the Part A and Part B, the pot life will be about a half hourtemperature and a 24 hour cure. 1.2.3.

Theproduct contains minerals that settle during storage, makingcordless drill mixers unsuitable. Double auger mixers or otherpowered concrete mixing drill is recommended. After pre-mixing part A, add full part B while mixing. Continue mixinguntil fully combined, 2-3 minutes. Set up your work area andensure that you can use all of the mixed products within 30-40 minutes.

1. Blisters/Splits: To repair large splits/blisters, use polyester Reinforcing fabric 1/16″thick in three layers and spread 2″ to 4″ beyond the split/blister area.2. Flashing details, penetrations, and curbs, FlexRock Coatings 1/8″ thick shall beapplied over the substrate. The edges of the coatings shall be feathered for the water toflow over the flashing details.3.Roof Drains: Clear all existing build-up from around drains and sumps after removingthe clamping ring. FlexRock Coatings across the entire drain/sump area.4. Membrane Repair: Check the roof substrates carefully for defects (holes, openings).When repairing defects over 1/8″ wide, use polyester reinforcing fabric. Add a thickcoating in a three-course fashion and spread to 2” to 4” beyond the repaired areas.5. Fasteners: Cover all fasteners with FlexRock Coatings to ensure a watertight seal.6. Curb Flashings: All curb flashings shall be dressed in at least a 2” wide x 1/8” thick ofFlexRock Coatings7 .Curbed AC Units: All curb flashings shall be covered with at least a 2” wide x 1/8” Theperimeter shall be FlexRock Coatings FX-1008 .Penetrations: FlexRock Coatings shall be applied around the base of the penetration,extending at least 4” onto the vertical and 4” onto the base. Use additional material ifneeded9 .Seams: All seams and areas around roof protrusions (vents, scuttle hatches, pitchpans, etc.) are to be treated with FlexRock Coatings FX-100 at 1/8” thickening agentsuch as crushed walnut shells may be used if needed to achieve a watertight reinforcedseal.10. Skylights All exposed skylight fasteners shall be covered with FlexRock Coatings FX-100 All curbed corners joints shall be covered FlexRock Coatings at least 2” wide x 1/8”thick.11.

Metal RoofsThe FlexRock Coating system can be used on metal roofs that are at least24 gauge or heavier.Remove loose coatings, paint, rust, and scale using a wire brush andscraper, or by water blasting. Using a minimum 2,400 psi blasting setting,wire brushing, and power or hand sanding will help you remove looserust.Encapsulate all fasteners using FlexRock Coatings.A visual inspection of the entire base coat should be performed after theapplication is complete. After curing, inspect for defects and repair asnecessary.Note: Total minimum coating System Dry Film Thickness(DFT) for theentire coating system shall be a minimum of 32 mils nominally.METAL | 800.808.0414 | info@flexrockcoatings.comFluid Applied Reinforced Roof Systems

OTHER CONSIDERATIONSTHICKENING: When a thicker product is needed to fill cracksor build up, follow small batch instructions and use any of thepre-approved thick-eners to achieve the thickness desired.Thickeners include: hemp hurd, crushed walnut shells, fumedsilica, crushed polyethylene, and powdered polystyrene.STORAGE: Ensure that stored products do not freeze. Store ina cool, dry place. Part B must be kept free of moisture. Keepthe container closed. Leave Part B open and it will absorbmoisture and create CO2 gas, which leads to pressure buildup.If possible, store part A pails upside down.SHELF LIFE: is recommended that you use all product within 1year.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONSA FlexRock Coating should not be considered for:1. Surfaces prone to pedestrian traffic, decks, and frequent trafficbearing. Unless using a topcoat such as a polyaspartic.2. Surfaces that are not prepared, including but not limited to wet,dusty, oily, mildewed, heavily chalked, blistered, or otherwisestructurally unsound surfaces.3. Oil-bleeding and solvent-bleeding materials. The list includes,but is not limited to, some vulcanized rubber products, tapes, failedsealants, some caulking compounds and asphaltic/mastic materialswithout appropriate preparation.4. Surfaces where adhesion has not been verified by testing.5. New EPDM may need a primer or surface prep.IMPORTANT: FlexRock Coatings can only ensure product performance if the applicators strictly adhere to thisspecification.FlexRock Coatings Management must approve any changes to specifications in writing.5. DO NOT THIN6. Keep away from food. If rain is expected within an hour of applying the product at temperaturesbelow 35°F (2°C), don’t apply it. Be sure to secure the pail and tighten the lid when transporting. Storein a cool, dry, shaded location. Ensure lid is completely sealed.ROOF COATING APPLICATIONPULL-TESTING (BEFORE APPLICATION): For best results, conduct a pull test polyester high-performance reinforcement fabric to test the surface and to ensure no contaminants are present beforeapplication.STANDARD APPLICATION: For 5 minutes, mechanically mix all of part A, making sure to scrape thesides and bottom.
