Application Instructions

Proper surface preparation is important to ensure proper adhesion. Before applying, repair any holes, cracks, and splits with #403 Reinforcing Fabric. Let repairs sit and weather for 30 days (minimum) prior to coating. Thoroughly clean the surface by removing dust, dirt, and loose debris with a broom. Use detergent and water to remove any oil and grease, then rinse completely. Use a broom to remove excess water and let dry. Mix the coating comprehensively prior to, and during, application. Coat the complete surface in a uniform manner with a roofing brush or roller. Do not apply #5500 Aluminum Coating if heavy dew or rain is expected within the 24 hours following application or if the temperature is expected to drop below 50°F (10°C) within 12 hours of application. Don’t apply on wet/damp surfaces, or to roofs which hold water because standing water will bring about premature failure. Use waterless hand cleaner to clean up immediately after using this fibered aluminum roof coating. This product is not meant to be heated or thinned and is intended for exterior application only. Do not store at temperatures above 100°F (37.8°C).

Make Repairs Before Coating With #403 Reinforcing Fabric

When repairs need to be made prior to coating, we recommend that you use #5500 Aluminum Coating in combination with #403 Reinforcing Fabric. #403 Reinforcing Fabric is a strong, resin treated glass patching fabric that is specially designed for patching holes and cracks ¼ inch wide or wider. #403 Reinforcing Fabric serves to reinforce patchwork and add dependability to repair jobs. This superior quality white fabric was formulated for use where non asphalt base coatings (such as white cements and coatings) require white fabric for satisfactory appearance. Maximum durability of repairs is achieved when you add #403 Reinforcing Fabric to #5500 Aluminum Coating. It is available in 4 inch by 50 foot rolls. This easy to apply reinforcing fabric is ideal for repairs on seams, cracks, flashings, gutters, and blisters.
