PERMASIL™ is a Matte Finish, Bright White, Elastomeric Acrylic Silicone, Insulative and Reflective Ceramic, Waterproofing Protective Roof Coating. It is a water-based, high build formula that possesses waterproofing, insulating and soundproofing properties that beautifies, protects and extends the life of most any sloped roofing surface. Silicone Technology adds extra waterproofing protection sheeting off water from the dried coating surface. Forms a thick rubber like ceramic shield of protection that expands and contracts with varying hot and cold temperatures, plus excellent resistance to thermal shock. Unsurpassed in technology, PERMASIL™ is an energy saving reflective coating that offers superior mildew resistance, ceramic insulation & soundproofing, excellent adhesion, U.V. ray reflectivity and a beautiful matte finish. An energy saving coating that combats the destructive environmental forces of nature. We can match competitors colors or custom colors. PERMASIL™ qualifies for a CLASS A Fire Rating Test as per ASTM E84-01, NFPA 101 Life Safety Code. This easy to apply roof coating system will provide many years of durable protection and outstanding beauty, and will extend the roof’s life. PERMASIL™ is an inexpensive alternative solution to roofing and re-roofing. PERMASIL™ offers a 15 YEAR LIMITED MATERIAL WARRANTY (see Warranty Compliance Information Section Below).
Recommended for well draining, SLOPED roofing surfaces only (see Warranty Compliance Below). Excellent adhesion on weathered wood, shakes, plywood, clapboard, primed metal, galvanized, aluminum, tin, copper, asbestos, asphalt, urethane, polyester, primed styrofoam, fiberglass, built-up-roofs, bonded roof gravel, rolled roofing, modified bitumen membranes, mineral surfaced roofing, concrete tiles, clay tiles, masonry tiles (flat or barrel), primed synthetic or aluminum, adobe, slate, slab, properly prepared EPDM, and various other substrates. PERMASIL™ is ideal for residential, commercial and industrial applications. For flat roofs or limited ponding water situations inquire about PERMAKOTE PLUS®, Limited Ponding Water Roof Coating.
Apply only to a sound, completely dry, well prepared roof surface. Leaks must be repaired before any coating is applied. If primer was applied, it is essential that the primer surface is clean and dry and free of all moisture. If no primer was applied, prepare surface by thoroughly pressure washing with a water and chlorine mixture using at least 1500 P.S.I. to remove any previous coatings, dirt, grease, and other foreign materials, especially mold, mildew and algae. PERMASIL™ will resist mildew growth, but will not kill mildew already on the surface. Patch any holes, cracks, flashings, valleys, vents, etc., with PERMAPATCH™, a Waterproof Caulk and Sealant. Tape & seal all seams with PERMATAPE™, a Polyester Fabric Tape.
Metal: Clean surface of all grease, oil and foreign matter before priming. Rusted metal and uncoated metal must be primed with METAL-PRIME RED-OX™, a Red Iron Oxide Primer Sealer. Use a degreaser on galvanized or coated metals which have oils or surface treatments. Check PERMASIL™ adhesion on galvanized or coated metal by applying to a small area and evaluating after 48 hours. If lack of adhesion is present after evaluating, metal must be lightly scuffed without penetrating the coated finish or galvanizing. If applicable, use METAL-PRIME RED-OX™ to spot prime the penetrated areas, then use PERMABOND™ Primer for entire coated or galvanized surface.
Stir well before using. Do not thin, use product as is. Mix multiple containers of color together for greater color consistency. Do not apply when temperatures are below 45 degrees Fahrenheit or when humidity is very high. Do not apply when coating will be subjected to rain or heavy dew before it has had enough time to dry (approx. 2 to 4 hours). Drying time will vary depending on temperature, humidity and location. Apply using brush, roller or spray. Spread coating uniformly. Spread Rate will vary depending on surface. Apply each coat between 12 to 16 mils wet film thickness. Wait at least 12 hours before applying a second coat. Two coats resulting in a minimum 16 mil total dry film thickness is required. If primer was used a minimum 20 mil total dry film thickness is required and is mandatory for warranty compliance.
Airless Sprayers: Use at least a 1 gallon per minute piston type airless sprayer with a minimum tip size of .027. Remove all line filters and gun filters before spraying.
Clean Up: Clean up all spills, tools and overspray immediately while the coating is still wet with warm soapy water.
