Preparation & Application

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease, release agents, laitance, dirt, dust and debris. All cracks and holes should be filled with 229AR  Elastomeric Trowel Grade prior to surface coating.

KARNAK 229AR Elastomeric Brush Grade should be mechanically mixed thoroughly, prior to application. For vertical applications use only 229AR Elastomeric Trowel Grade.

Trowel Grade – Apply to either vertical or horizontal surfaces using a smooth edge trowel. Coverage will vary depending on the desired thickness. To achieve a 1/16” thickness apply at the rate of 4 gallons per 100 sq. ft.; 1/8” thickness apply at the rate of 8 gallons per 100 sq. ft.; ¼” thickness apply in two coats at the rate of 8 gallons per 100 sq. ft. per coat.

Brush Grade – Mix thoroughly just prior to using. Apply to horizontal roof surfaces with a fiber roof brush at the rate of 3 to 4 gallons per 100 sq. ft.  Coverage will vary depending on the irregularity and porosity of the roof surface.

Caulk Grade – Apply directly in and over cracks using a standard caulking gun. An application rate of ¼” x ¼” bead of caulk will yield approximately 75  linear feet per 30 oz. caulking cartridge. Coverage may vary depending on desired thickness and surface being caulked.

Caution/Care of Tools

Do not use near open flame. Avoid breathing solvent fumes and prolonged contact with skin. Do not take internally. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately. Keep out of reach of children. Keep container covered when not in use. Do not thin. Dispose of in an environmentally safe manner.
