INDEPENDENT WEATHEROMETER TEST - Laboratory Report

MATERIAL: Roofcoat FR10

PROPERTY: Ageing and Heat Resistance

TEST METHOD: QUV Weatherometer

TEST SPECIMEN: One coat brush applied to mineral board, dried at room temperature. 

TEST PROGRAMME: Exposure cycles, 4 hours UVB @ 65°C, 4 hours condensation @ 50°C

RESULTS: 

3,000 hours = surface is matt due to chalking which cleans off to leave a good sheen.  Coating is integral and providing the substrate with protection against moisture penetration.

12,000 hours = without failure.

Colour good, surface dull due to chalking.  Signs of erosion of binder and fibres exposed.  Coating still integral and intact with substrate protected against ingress of moisture.

COMMENTS: This is an accelerated ageing test which combines many factors, such as effect of heat, ultra-violet light and moisture in continuous cycles.  Because specific conditions of ageing can vary greatly, this test cannot be quantitative. ROOFCOAT FR10 was tested in comparison with a competitor’s product which claimed to have a 10 year natural ageing span.  Under our test conditions it crazed and cracked within the first 3,000 hours of test. NB.  1,000 hours is equivalent to 3 years natural weathering.

FIRE RESISTANCE

ROOFCOAT FR10 has been tested for fire resistance and conforms to DIN4102 Part 7. 

SPECIFICATION

  1. Remove all organic matter, loose and peeling coatings and roof aggregates (chippings etc). Drains and gutters should be protected against blockage.
  2. Clean the surface of any remaining dirt and debris, preferably by suitable high pressure water jetting or stiff bristle bass brush.
  3. Surfaces previously contaminated with moss, lichen and algae growth must be treated with LICHENITE. Apply one coat by brush or spray at a   coverage not exceeding 10 square metres per litre.  Allow 24 hours before proceeding.
  4. Splits, cracks and blisters should be repaired with ROOFCOAT FR10 SCRIM. Apply one coat of ROOFCOAT FR10 to the area to be repaired, cut scrim to the desired length, embed in the wet ROOFCOAT FR10 and apply a second coat.  Blisters in felt should be star cut, ROOFCOAT FR10 applied under the flaps and the flaps rebedded.  Strengthen the repair with ROOFCOAT FR10 SCRIM and apply a further coat of ROOFCOAT FR10 over the repair.
  5. ROOFCOAT FR10 and ROOFCOAT FR10 SCRIM should be used to bridge and fill large gaps and cracks. Silicone substrates should not be treated with ROOFCOAT FR10.
  6. To the prepared surface apply a generous coat of ROOFCOAT FR10 in selected colour by ROOFCOAT FR10 SPREADER, brush, soft broom or trowel. DO NOT THIN.  Work away from area immediately being treated and towards a suitable escape exit.  Do not walk on the newly coated surface whilst application is in progress or until the coating has cured and dried.  Curing time 2-3 days.
  7. CLEANING: Brushes, trowels and spreaders should be cleaned immediately after use in white spirit.
