Product Details

  • Product Color: Standard Colors available are white, ligh gray, medium gray and tan. For additional premium colors or color matching services contact Volatile Free, Inc.
  • UV Stability: This product is UV color stable and has long-term UV testing. For additional information contact Volatile Free, Inc.
  • Coverage/Thickness Requirement: See VFI specifications for specific coverage information or contact Volatile Free, Inc. for additional coverage/thickness requirements.
  • Storage Stability/Shelf Life: 12-month shelf life from date of manufacture when stored and sealed in unopened containers between 40°F - 75°F. Opened containers may be resealed with a nitrogen purge, but shelf life will be significantly shortened. Material should be brought to a minimum temperature of 65°F before use.
  • Equipment: SealGuard 990 Silicone may be applied by sprayer, roller, or brush. If sprayed use single component spray equipment capable of maintaining a minimum constant spray pressure of 5000 psi. 5:1 transfer pump should be used with drums. Contact Volatile Free, Inc. for more information on any specific equipment questions and requirements.
  • Surface Preparation: Surface preparation depends on application and substrate being coated. All surfaces should be cleaned, prepped and free of any oils, dirt or films that could affect the product adhesion. Contact Volatile Free Inc. with any additional questions.
  • Mixing: Mixing until uniform is required on all material before use. Mix times may vary depending on volume and mixing method, please contact Volatile Free, Inc. for more information on any specific mixing questions and requirements.
  • Material Application: Material can be applied between 40°F - 120°F. Standard application is a multiple coat method with 22 mil passes until the desired thickness is reached. Apply only when rain or other moisture contamination will not be present before fully cured. The time between subsequent coats should not exceed 48 hours, but materials should be allowed to cure before applying the second coat. Material cure time will vary with temperature.
  • Primers: Volatile Free, Inc. recommends adhesion patch testing before use and additional adhesion patch testing with the chosen primer. The following are approved primers for use with SealGuard 990. Contact Volatile Free, Inc. with any primer questions.
    • VFI-#11
    • VFI-3218
  • Cleanup: Preferred clean-up solvent is chemically dry mineral spirits. Please contact Volatile Free, Inc. for more information on clean-up of equipment and tools.
  • Thinning: Do not thin prior to application.
  • Precautions: See Safety Data Sheet for complete safety data. Do not add any foreign material to this product. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors and prolonged or repeated skin contact. Use only with adequate ventilation.

Systems Used In

Hybrid Polyurethane Foam Roof System

A hybrid silicone and polyurethane roofing system is a premiere strength and energy saving system for a roof. Using our 727 polyurethane 3 PCF roofing foam provides a smooth monolithic layer that is easy to topcoat and gives the building a higher energy efficiency. The foam is then coated with 3600 polyurethane, an extremely durable basecoat, to create a tough urethane layer over the foam to prevent hail damage and leaks. The 3600 can be spray applied or rolled, depending on the speed needed or available equipment. Sealguard® 990 high solids silicone is then applied as the topcoat to provide UV stability and protection against ponding water. Using these three products as a system provides the strengths of each product and removes the weaknesses of each product. This system is best used when a premium roof system is required to stand up to UV degradation and severe hail. These products when sprayed can all be applied same day making this a quick and efficient roofing process that will provide a lasting result.

Silicone Polyurethane Foam Roof System

A silicone and foam roofing system is an extremely energy efficient and green system as it provides cost savings to the owner in the form of decreasing energy costs and does not require a roof tear off. Our polyurethane roofing foam is a spray applied 3 PCF foam that provides a smooth monolithic layer that is easy to topcoat. A PCF foam provides the necessary strength to walk on, while still maintaining a high R value for insulation. Our recommended topcoat is one of our silicone products either our standard solids silicone when you want to roll on the coating for an extremely smooth even finish or our high solids silicone when you have VOC limitations and you are spraying the product. Both silicones provide exceptional UV properties, resistance to ponding water and a room temperature cure (RTV). The silicone polyurethane foam roof system provides the necessary attributes to make an energy efficient leak proof membrane that can save money immediately and long term.
