B. RESPONSIBILITY FOR PERFORMANCE:
If the requirements of the construction cocuments negate or restrict the specified performance, or if a conflict or ambiguity exists in the construction documents, the contractor must request a clarification of any discrepancies before proceeding with the work.
C. PRE-INSTALLATION CONFERENCE:
Before starting the work specified herein, a pre-installation conference shall be held to discuss all aspects of the project. The following parties shall be in attendance:
1. Applicator's field representative or roofing foreman
2. Manufacturer's technical representative and affected adjacent trades
3. Owner's representative
D. MANUFACTURER'S TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE:
Provide a representative to attend the pre-installation conference, and review existing conditions and application procedures at project start-up and periodically during the progression of the project.
All work including disposal of materials shall be in compliance with applicable local building codes.
Deliver clearly labeled, undamaged materials in the manufacturer's unopened containers.
B. TIMING AND COORDINATION:
Deliver materials to allow for minimum storage time at the project site. Coordinate delivery with the scheduled time of installation.
Store materials in a clean dry location, protected from weather and abuse.
A. EXAMINATION OF EXISTING CONDITIONS:
Contractor shall examine existing conditions affecting this work and shall report all unsatisfactory conditions to the proper authority and will not proceed until these conditions have been corrected. Commencing work implies acceptance of existing conditions as satisfactory to the outcome of this work.
All products used in the coating assembly must be furnished, specified, or approved of in writing by Coatings International Roofing Systems. Products not supplied by Coatings International will not be covered by Coatings International Roofing Systems' warranty.
The manufacturer shall warrant the specified work from the date of completion for the length of the specified warranty against becoming unserviceable from either nonconforming materials or workmanship.
Urethane coatings typically contain organic solvents and as such can be toxic and flammable. Work only in fully ventilated areas. Do not smoke when using these products or use near sparks, heat, or any open flames. Read and follow the Tough Stuff Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). All waste materials including empty pails must be removed from the site by the applicator and taken to a landfill authorized to receive such materials.
Urethanes and primers will require proper mixing before application as follows:
|AC5600, PR3200, PR3300, PR3600||None|
|UR2550, UR2650, UR2750||Four minutes (two part)|
|PR3500||One minute (two part - five minute digest after mixing)|
|PR3400, PR3450, AC5000, AC5900, UR1600, UR1700, UR1800||One minute|
Remove dirt, and foreign material detrimental to adhesion or application of roofing. Use 404 cleaner diluted 20:1 with water. On heavy dirt or grease, apply full strength. Broom scrub the soap solution on the membrane to loosen oxidation and dirt and rinse with a minimum 2500 psi water blaster. If there are algae growing on the surface, the cleaning must include bleach in the washing of the substrate.
Examine existing system for loose fasteners and gapped seams. Pay particular attention to the horizontal seams. These seams have to be tight before detailing. Replace stripped fasteners with oversized version of the same fastener, i.e. aluminum, galvanized, or stainless must remain as designed by the manufacturer.
Metal roof configurations will dictate the type of seam detail required for complete waterproofing. Certain roof matrix conditions will not require that all seams are detailed. Consult Coatings International for detail variances. There are 4 basic seam detail configurations:
B. VERTICAL SEAMS:
Vertical joints will be finished in a fashion relative to the existing condition.
Fasteners are detailed as required to make the system watertight.
D. HORIZONTAL LAP JOINTS:
E. URETHANE MASTIC
All purpose mastic can be used with urethane by adding 30-50% D200 by volume to the UR1700 urethane. Material consistency can vary from a whipped cream texture to a plastic cement type mastic. The light mastic can still be sprayed and back brushed. After the substrate has been cleaned and primed (if needed), apply a base coat of material over the seam area. Brush the material up into the joint. Vertical joints will need a 2” wide bead of material. Horizontal seams will need a minimum 6”-12” pass. Horizontal joints will include polyester. Material will taper from 100 mils at the joint edge on the top and bottom. Calculate 7 gallons per one hundred (100) square feet of seam area. Material coverage will vary with seam thickness.
|2"||7 GAL.||600 LINEAL FT.||400 LINEAL FT.|
|4"||7 GAL.||300 LINEAL FT.||250 LINEAL FT.|
|6"||7 GAL.||200 LINEAL FT.||150 LINEAL FT.|
|9"||7 GAL.||133 LINEAL FT.||100 LINEAL FT.|
|12"||7 GAL.||100 LINEAL FT.||75 LINEAL FT.|
Acrylic mastic can be used on vertical joints of acrylic systems only. For horizontal joints of acrylic systems use the urethane mastic, urethane and polyester. Acrylic mastic is made by mixing AC5000 or AC5900 with D200 at 30-50% by volume. Acrylic detailing should be used with acrylic top coat only.
Machine curbs with standing water behind can be filled using UR2550 urethane filled with D210 ceramic additive. Additive is 50/50 by volume with equal displacement (50% filling adds 50% volume).
Spray or brush finish coats in multiple passes to achieve required mils.
Apply additional layer(s) of the finish at 1.5-2.0 gallons/square with optional aggregate. Aggregate can be added to the mixture or broadcast into the wet material.
