PR ODUCT DESCRIPTION: FX-814R is an elastomeric copolymer rubber based liquid with rubber granules incorporated to provide texture and slip resistance. The modified formulation has excellent elongation, UV resistance and weathering characteristics. This flexible textured membrane also has excellent resistance to ozone as well as low temperature flexibility. FX-814R liquid rubber walkway has displayed good adhesion to many properly prepared substrates including EPDM. RECOMMENDED FOR: Most common roof substrates such as wood, metal, EPDM, APP, TPO, and Hypalon. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR: Application over tar based roofing THIS PRODUCT IS ALSO AVAILABLE INCORPORATING A FRAGRANCE MASK TO DIMINISH THE SOLVENT ODOR (UPON REQUEST) FX-814R TECHNICAL DATA (Copolymer Liquid Rubber Walkway) ROOF SOLIDS BY WEIGHT: 69% (+,-3) SOLIDS BY VOLUME: 62% (+,-3) RECOMMENDED COVERAGE: Coverage depends on surface conditions and application procedures. Normally, 1 gallon per 17.5 square feet provides the correct coverage thickness. COLORS: Standard: shadow gray. Many other colors are available upon request. Colors may vary from batch to batch due to variations in feed stock material. RECOMMENDED DRY FILM THICKNESS: 56 mils total dry film thickness will result from applying the recommended 90 mils wet thickness. PACKAGING: Available in 5 gallon pails (volumes approximate per container). TYPICAL PROPERTIES: (CURED FILM) PROPERTY TEST METHOD RESULTS Hardness ASTM D2240 shore A @ 75°F 50% R.H.

Do not apply a second coat until the first coat is dry. Close all sources of air intake from roof into building to prevent solvent odor transfer into building. Do not use indoors. Product cures from solvent evaporation- do not apply thicker than recommended. This product should not be used on surfaces where certain insulation boards such as EPS have been used without thoroughly evaluating the suitability. Read the SDS before using this product. Product is not resistant to solvent exposure. Physical properties are typical values and not specifications. Please see reverse side for limitations of our liability and warranty. Too thick of an application may cause some roofing systems such as “not fully adhered EPDM” to rumple and exhibit some substrate waviness after the application. This waviness will diminish with time, although it may not completely disappear. However, this will not diminish the performance of the substrate.

MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: FX-814R Copolymer Roof Coating PRODUCT STORAGE: Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be between 60 and 80 degree F. MIXING: Mix the material before use as needed to provide a uniform mixture. Mix with slow speed equipment to minimize air being whipped into product. SURFACE PREPARATION: Make certain that the substrate where the product is to be applied is clean, sound and free of all laitance, dirt, dust, oil, grease, water, dew or foreign contaminants. Power washing will be an effective preparation method for most substrates. Power washing will be an effective preparation method for most substrates. Wire brush or abrasive blast all loose and scaling rust from metal surfaces. When topcoating EPDM or seamed roofs, make sure all seams are secure. Precautions should be exercised when coating surfaces to determine the compatibility of certain insulation boards such as EPS and the effect that the coating may have on the underlying insulation board. A suitable test patch can be applied to determine suitability. Surface must be dry before application. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS: Do not apply material when temperature is below 40°F during the application time or drying period. Apply material when RH is below 90% for best results. Allow for adequate dry times between coats and before inclement weather or rain. Higher humidity or lower temperatures will slow the dry time. APPLICATION: First, mask off the area where the liquid rubber walkway is to be installed. Then pour/spread walkway liquid rubber onto masked off area. Next, firmly press down on the material with a PHENOLIC CORE roller and spread the material evenly on the surface. Pour only enough material at one time that allows for rolling the material before it becomes tack free. Firm application pressure applied on the phenolic core roller will provide the texture and assure that the material is not being applied too thick. Be sure to apply this product at the specified coverage rate or recommended mil thickness. Some adhesives on existing structures (used to bond the rubber sheets to the deck/structures) may degrade, or are of a poor quality and may not re-bond when the swelling has recovered. Should this occur, you may need to re-bond the sheet rubber with quality adhesives. As we have no control over the type of adhesives used on existing structures, we cannot be held responsible for such occurrences. Apply one gallon per 17.5 square feet per coat (one coat recommended). Always check the substrate for foreign contamination and water before coating. NOTE: If applying over porous substrates, such as concrete but not limited to only concrete, always apply a test patch to determine suitability concerning out-gassing, which could result in pin-holing in both the first coat and subsequent coats as well as potential blisters from the out-gassing. REOPEN SERVICE TIME: Take notice of the full cure time and do not open the area to abusive use before the full characteristics of the coating is achieved. Apply when weather permits 24 hours of rain free curing. MAINTENANCE: Provide for routine maintenance of your roof to assure years of trouble free performance.
