Preparation & Application

SURFACE PREPARATION:
All surfaces to be sealed must be dry, clean and free from rust, loose coating and caulk, oil, grease and other foreign matter. Remove silicone or other sealants before using.

APPLICATION:General Repairs
Karna-Flex WB should be applied by stiff brush or bulk loading caulking gun, depending on the application. Apply sealer when temperatures are above  40ºF and rain is not forecasted within 24 hours. For sealing flashings and lap seams use fabric reinforcement between layers of Karna-Flex WB. Apply  sealer in a 1/16” to 1/8” width then immediately embed KARNAK 5540 Resat-Mat polyester fabric into the wet coating. Smooth out fabric then apply another  layer of sealer. Some shrinkage may occur and require an additional application of Karna-Flex WB.

For metal roofing follow these application guidelines:
1. Horizontal Seams and Cracks 1/16” wide or larger.
• Using KARNAK 550 Patch-N-Go Fleece Tape, adhere tape to crack as directed per product application guidelines. Apply Karna-Flex WB at an average  thickness of 1/16” to completely cover the polyester face of the tape and feather out.
• Using KARNAK Resat-Mat, apply a 1/16” thick application of Karna-Flex WB then immediately embed one ply of Resat-Mat polyester fabric into the wet coating. Smooth out fabric then apply another layer of Karna-Flex WB.
2. Screws/Fasteners, Vertical Seams and Cracks less than 1/16”
• Over screws and fasteners apply a dollop of Karna-Flex WB to completely enclose the screw/fastener with either a 2” wide brush or bulk loading caulking gun.
• Over vertical seams and cracks less than 1/16” wide, back brush a minimum 2” wide application of Karna-Flex WB at an appropriate thickness of 1/16” to 1/8”.

Note: Allow to cure 24 hours before coating over, if desired. Not intended for use
in ponding areas.
