MATERIAL
APPLICATION
COVERAGE

Exterior wood

Wood Shingles and Shakes, wood siding. wood fencing

 

Pressure wash roof to remove all foreign substances (fungi, molds, mildew, etc.)

Be sure surface is clean and dry before treating

Apply with sprayer head held at 8 to 12 inches from surface.

Treat all surface areas
where possible.

Do not expose treated area to moisture for 24 hours.

Treat roofs by applying chemical to surface area and substructure area (attic), if possible

110 sq. ft. per gallon

WOOD ROOF SURFACES
(Shakes or Shingles) :

Surface to be treated must be dry (up to 24 hours drying time after a rain and 4 hours after a dew). Surface must be clean. Brooming or air blowing may be necessary to remove leaves and needles. Apply Shingle Safe, by spray, DO NOT DILUTE. To maximize coverage start from the ridge down working your way across the roof surface. The sprayer ip should be held approximately 8" to 12" from the surface and at a 45 degree angle (or greatera) to the roof surface. The angle will allow coverage underneath the leading edge of the shingle above. The specified application rate is 120 sq. ft. per gallon.
FOR OPTIMUM RESULTS, to inhibit or drastically reduce the wind tunnel or blow torch effect of fire in the attic area, treat the underside of the roof in the attic, as well as all other attic substrates, including blown insulation, with Shingle Safe.

CAUTION:

          Product must not freeze. It must not be thinned or diluted.


OVERSPRAY:

        The overspray will not harm plants or animals. Spills can be flushed with water. A rag wetted with   bleach and water mix will clean up spotting.


CLEAN UP PROCEDURE:

          Airless Equipment.

1. Run clear water through the system until coating is flushed out. When minor sudsing on surface stops, the system is flushed.

2. Run bleach and water mix (1 part to 4 parts) through system as solvent for cleaning any residue.

            3. Repeat Step 1 if any foaming occurs in Step 2.

            4. Lubricate system as specified by equipment manufacturer to combat rusting.

If two or more applications are planned in the same day, the sprayer can be kept clean by running water through the system between applications.


          Brushes/Rollers.

              1. Clean immediately after use.

              2. Wash thoroughly with bleach and water mix (1 part to 4 parts).


SAFETY FIRST

Use approved safety devices (ropes, belts, ridge hooks, ladder, etc.) When working on steep or high areas. Take EXTREME CARE not to step on wet treated area. Surface may be slick until dry.

It is good practice to wear respirator or mask and protect hands with rubber gloves when spraying any coating or chemical. When engineered air control is not feasible, use properly maintained and properly fitted NIOSH approved respirator for solvent vapors. A dusk mask does not provide protection against vapors.

If eye contact occurs, flood with water for fifteen (15) minutes and call a physician. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY.
