Surface to be coated must be dry and free of dirt or corrosion particles.
#6000 may be applied to wet surfaces as a temporary repair measure. Its
ultra high density and water displacing abilities allow adhesion to wet and
underwater surfaces. In conventional applications, first apply Lucas #115
Detergent Primer and power-wash according to directions. Before applying
coating, close all fresh air intakes and other potential points of entry for
solvent vapors into the building. All penetrations should be sealed with
#6500 Universal Flashing Cement. On metal roofs any grade of #5500 Seam
sealer may be utilized. For best results, apply the product with a 3/4 to 1 1/4
inch nap roller or suitable spray equipment. Apply successive coats at right
angles when possible. Mix the coating thoroughly before application. For
best results, maintain coating temperature at 50° F or higher. Roof Tempera-
ture should be above freezing during application. Once applied, coating is
unaffected by temperature.
Allow 24 hours between coats on asphalt, modified bitumen and EPDM
roofs. For all other roof types, allow four hours between primer and/or base
coats and the finish coat. All roofs must be cleaned with #115 prior to appli-
cation of this product. Failure to do so may result in poor adhesion and/or
discoloration of the coating.
BUR/ModBit (varies): 2.5 to 3 gallons per sq. applied in 2 coats 1.25 to 1.5 gal/sq each*
TPO/EPDM/CSPE: 2.5 gallons per square applied in 2 coats 1.25 gal/sq each**
Metal (varies): 2.5 to 3 gallons per square applied in 2 coats 1.25 to 1.5 gal/sq ea.
Concrete: Prime with #5015 1/2 gal/sq
2.5 gallons per square / 2 Coats 1.25 gal/sq each
PVC: Prime with #1015 1/2 gal/sq (required for PVCs with plasticizer)
2.5 gallons per square applied in 2 coats at 1.25 gal/sq each
For fabric reinforced applications or other roof systems, consult the manu-
facturer. Typical rate of application with reinforcement is 5 gallons per 100
*The first coat over asphalt will often stain yellow. Although #6000 is highly resistant to
asphalt staining, this condition is unpredictable. If brown spots appear during applica-
tion with a roller, inspect the roller nap for embedded pieces of asphalt. These spots will
be covered by the second coat. Uneven, alligatored or cracked roofs will require the
higher rate of application.
**EPDM roofs may exhibit temporary swelling if application rates are significantly
exceeded. If swelling occurs do not proceed with additional coats until it has subsided.
If unsure of the type of roof system to be coated, consult the manufacturer to obtain
