ROOF PAINT is a scientific blend of pure aluminum pigment and selected asphalts-the unbeatable combination for roofs. ROOF PAINT provides year-round weatherproofing, and is vastly superior to ordinary varnish vehicle and other aluminum paints when used for the purposes intended. When used on composition roofs, ROOF PAINT shields the surface against the sun’s rays, thereby eliminating the drying and cracking which normally takes place rapidly on this type of roof. On metal roofs ROOF PAINT remains flexible longer providing greater durability than conventional aluminum roof paints.
DO NOT THIN OR ALTER IN ANY WAY
SURFACE PREPARATION: Surface must be clean, dry and free from loose particles (especially on slag roofs). Nail down all loose nails and flashings and patch open breaks or torn roofing. New asphalt roofing should weather three months before painting-tar roofs, one year. On metal surfaces, remove all rust and prime rusted areas with a rust inhibiting metal primer. Allow 48 hours drying time before next coat. New galvanized iron should be weathered six months or more before painting.
MIXING: Pour one-third of can contents into a separate container and stir balance for not less than ten minutes. Pour the mixed paint back into the remaining liquid and repeat until all pigment is incorporated.
APPLICATION: Stir thoroughly (refer to mixing directions). Apply a thick, free flowing coat with a minimum of brushing, always finishing into previously painted area. Use a good bristle brush, never fiber. Drying time about two hours. Clean up with kerosene or mineral spirits.
Do not use oil paints over ROOF PAINT since it occasionally results in bleeding.
APPROXIMATE COVERAGE PER GAL-Metal-250-300 sq. ft; Built-up roofs-200-250 sq. ft; Slate, Asbestos Shingle, Asphalt Shingle or Slag roofs-150-200 sq. ft.
If desired a second coat of ROOF PAINT may be applied twelve to twenty four hours later.
