Installation

PREPARING THE EXISTING ROOF
All types of substrate are required to be clean and free from loosely adhering particles. Cementitious substrates and those of a high porosity will require priming first with RoofSkin Deck Primer at a rate 5mĀ²per kg. Substrates with a high percentage of surface defects would also benefit from priming.

CRACK BRIDGING
Where cracks are evident in the substrate it is required to expose them. Clean and apply RoofSkin PU Flexible Mastic Sealant into the crack and cover with a narrow width of RoofSkin to accommodate RoofSkin Reinforcement Scrim, (see video for correct application). Allow to become tack free before proceeding with the main waterproofing layer.

JOINT BRIDGING
For timber & metal surfaces it is necessary to seal all joints using narrow width of RoofSkin to accommodate RoofSkin Reinforcing Scrim, embedded into the RoofSkin. Allow to become tack-free before proceeding with the main waterproofing layer.

EDGE DETAILING AND ANGLES
Wherever there is a change of angle (horizontal/vertical), it is necessary to reinforce the system using RoofSkin Reinforcing Scrim embedded into the RoofSkin.
Allow to become tack-free before proceeding with the main waterproofing layer.

METAL SURFACES
Uncoated metal surfaces will require priming with RoofSkin Metal Primer. Please see container for instructions.

TRIMS
See installation video at www.roofskin.co.uk/technical
A comprehensive range of trims are available through your local merchant. These are secured to the new/existing substrate using the appropriate fixings
and RoofSkin PU Flexible Mastic Sealant.

MIXING
See installation video at www.roofskin.co.uk/technical
Pour all of Part B into the main Part A container. Using a slow speed paddle, mix components A+B until a uniform consistency and colour is achieved (approximately four minutes). Ensure that your Paddle Mixer is NOT allowed to settle in any one area of the container. Avoid mixing too quickly as this may beat air into the mix resulting in surface pin holes. Once thoroughly mixed to a streak free consistency pour onto the prepared substrate and spread using a roller or squeegee at a rate of 1.25kg per m2 to provide a thickness of 1mm.
