|Reflectance||98.9% average. FTS 141 6121, ASTM E313|
|Weathering||2,000 hours weatherometer - no cracking, crazing, or erosion, slight chalking. ASTM D638|
|Temperature Cycling and Penetration||
Tests conducted in accordance with the "Acceptance Criteria For Special Roofing Systems" as published by the International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO). Results: PASS. Samples averaged 1.626 before testing. Samples averaged 1.610 after being subjected to the Weatherometer. The change in thickness was less than 1%. Examination of the samples after testing showed no evidence of tearing or cracking of the protective coating.
*Temperature Cycling & Penetration Testing: 25 continuous cycles, each cycle consisted of 1 hour of water exposure at room temperature prior to 6 hours at-40° F, 2 hours at 70° F, 14 hours at 180° F and 1 hour at 70° F. Spray nozzles delivered 6 in. of water per hour at a temperature of 40° F to 60° F. At the conclusion of the 25 cycles, the specimens were examined.

Surface Preparation: Surfaces should be clean, dry, free of dust, dirt and oily residues. Remove loose rust from metal, and wipe new galvanized metal with acidic acid solution prior to application. Metacrylics® Primer is recommended for all surfaces. New concrete must be fully cured. New glazed asphalt and torch down single-ply assemblies should wait 6 months or more before application.
Thinning: Cannot be thinned.
Clean-Up: Clean tools and equipment with water . Cured material may be removed with Amylacetate, hand cleaner, or lacquer thinner. Do not use these materials (except hand cleaner) on bare skin.
Storage: Store in areas where temperature remains above 40°F. Reseal opened containers. If contents skin, remove surface skin and use immediately.
Do not apply if rain or freezing weather is imminent within 24 hours following application, or during fog or drizzle. This product is water-based and could wash off if not fully cured.
Keep Away From Children.
Do not apply when temperatures are consistently below 40° F. The Acrylic Base dries slowly when temperatures are below 55° F. Areas shaded from sunlight dry very slowly. Seventy-two hours or more may be required for proper curing. Do not thin or add solvents. Protect materials from freezing AND extreme heat.
Caution! Wet acrylic is extremely slippery when stepped on. Always use a safety rope on sloped surfaces.
Stir the Metacrylics® Primer before any application! The Base AND Acrylic Colors normally don't need to be stirred before application. Do not stir the Gel.
Metacrylics® products must be applied and installed according to written specifications from the manufacturer. Metacrylics® assumes no liability for failures of this roof/deck system resulting from deviation from manufacturer's written specification, poor workmanship, or delamination of an existing underlying roof/deck membrane. The manufacturer makes no warranty of any kind, express or implied, concerning this roof/deck system, if it is not used according to manufacturer's specifications.
