|A. General Questions:
How many years old are the first roofs sealed with EVERLAST®ROOFSKIN that are still in good condition ?
The first roofs and still intact were treated 15 years ago.
There will be no problems as long as the rules given in the Material Safety Data sheets are followed.
Yes it does adhere.
Not suited for interior coating in solvent tanks.
When SUPERPRIMER is applied as a thin film (60-100µm range) water vapour will diffuse through it.
Yes . Refer to the corresponding test-report. ( See REPORTS )
Simply let dry out in the open air and dispose as plastic garbage.
Yes, reinforce the borders with ACRYLIC FLEECE
No .The EVERLAST®ROOFSKIN treated roof comes to a cost-savings of 60%.
Taking the usable lifetime into consideration , the EVERLAST®ROOFSKIN roof is 60% less expensive.
EVERLAST®ROOFSKIN is resistant against mild acids and alkalines as well as water-based salt solutions.EVERLAST®ROOFSKIN swells reversible under attack from solvents.
Yes.Excellent. Roofs are being cooled in the summer and heat-loss is being reduced in the winter.
At minus 45 degrees Celsius
In a closed container EVERLAST®ROOFSKIN does not harden, since it is is a 1-component compound. Only when moisture from the air enters the container does a curing reaction set in and the fluid elastomer hardens at a rate of 4 mm /day.
Yes, 40% less time consuming over conventional products.
Yes.This is easily done and most roofers apply EVERLAST®ROOFSKIN on specific time consuming areas like roof-upstands and edge works, leaving the conventional products for the flat surfaces only.
The reduced working time (cost-savings) and the true seamless sealing capability of the liquid elastomer.
Yes. After closing the lid on the started can, turn it upside down. This produces self-sealing.
Concrete is microporous and always contains moisture. Soak the concrete surface thoroughly with SUPER PRIMER and the following day EVERLAST®ROOFSKIN can be applied.
Use concrete, liquid aspalt or so called "construction foam" as fill-up, accordingly to roof construction.
Wait at least 45 minutes but not more than 24 hours.
Slightly rusted metal sheets should be coated with EVERLAST®C.A.R.O.L anti-corrosion primer. (See info on the website www.everlast4steel.com )
Always treat old roof surfaces with SUPERPRIMER first.
Use a 40-80 mm (2 to 3 inches) wide adhesive "sticky" tape, which can be later be pulled off.
Yes, but only when this does not effect the roof-safety.(Slide-off protection)
