Technical Data Sheet

Hard dry within 4 hours enabling 2 coats to be applied the same day. Easy application with brush, roller or airless spray. An appealing sheen finish. Easy clean up with water. Contains biocide to prevent algae and fungal growth.
GALVANISED IRON: Remove fabricators pre-treatment with Galvanised Iron Cleaner and prime with WB Galvanised Iron Primer. CEMENT: Surfaces should be free from dirt, friable material and foreign contamination. Apply first coat Dekaroof diluted up to 20% with water followed by 2 more coat undiluted.
Previously Painted Surfaces:
Surface must be in a sound condition. Roof surfaces showing signs of flaking must be stripped. All chalky and powdery surfaces to be thoroughly sanded and hosed down. Surfaces with algae, lichen, moss etc must be cleaned using a high pressure water spray or by wetting the roof with clean water and applying a copper sulphate and water mixture, followed by scrubbing.
Do not apply during cold, wet conditions. Do not apply when roof is extremely hot (@noon on a hot day) Do not apply directly to galvanised roofs unless dry, clean and primed. Allow sufficient time for paint to dry before evening dew begins to settle. Take care when using chemical treatments as they kill plant growth. Avoid splashing and wear protective clothing and gloves. Do not apply to friable surfaces regardless of whether new, old or previously painted. Not suitable for roofs that act as catchments for drinking water.
