Applying silicone to a metal, concrete, mod/bit or single-ply roof is easily achieved with VFI’s superior products. Specifications must be followed. The overall process includes 4 steps. 1. Clean 2. Prime 3. Repair 4. Coat.
First, clean the roof with VFI-1009 Cleaning Concentrate. VFI-1009 is a highly effective cleaning agent that, when combined with water, penetrates the existing coating or substrate and allows contaminants to be flushed from the surface.
Second, prime the roof with VFI-#11 Water Based Epoxy Primer. VFI-#11 is a general purpose, two component, water based, epoxy primer. It provides excellent adhesion and superior strength to most metal, single-ply, concrete, wood and mod bit/BUR surfaces.
Third, repair the roof with SEALGUARD VFI-993 Flashing Grade SILICONE. VFI-993 is a high build, single component silicone sealant designed to seal abnormal roof penetrations that cannot be covered with standard sprayers or rollers.
Lastly, coat your roof with SEALGUARD VFI-990 SILICONE. VFI-990 is a single component, high solids roof coating that forms an elastomeric, waterproof, white membrane and protects your building from water damage and UV deterioration. The VFI formula provides maximum durability and sustainability.
