229AR Elastomeric


Karnak's #229 AR-Elastomeric is a single component, SBS rubber reinforced asphalt which forms an elastomeric roof coating. Karnak #229 AR Elastomeric has excellent elongation properties, good cold weather pliability and excellent water and weather resistance.










USES


Karnak #229 AR-Elastomeric is available in brush/ spray and trowel grades. Karnak #229 AR Elastomeric brush grade is recommended for use as a roof coating on asphalt, BUR, concrete, metal, granulated roofs and spray polyurethane foam roofing. Karnak #229 AR Elastomeric trowel grade can be utilized for flashing, edging, expansion joints, pitch pockets and other areas where nominal or slight movement is anticipated.

ADVANTAGES


  • Easy to apply.
  • Tough, flexible, elastic, rubber-like film.
  • Excellent adhesion to most surfaces including primed concrete, masonry, metal and sprayed urethane foam. Weathered asphalt may not need priming.
  • Excellent water and water vapor resistance.
  • Excellent weather resistance.
  • One year shelf life.
  • One component, needs no intermixing.
  • Good resistance to salts and alkalies.
  • Compatible with many highway and bridge specifications.

SPECIFICATION


  • ASTM D-4586 Type I
  • ASTM D-4479 Type I

SURFACE PREPARATION


Surfaces to be coated must be clean and free from dirt, dust, grease and oil. All surfaces must be patched and repaired prior to the application of the coating.

APPLICATION


Karnak #229 AR-Elastomeric brush grade should be lighty mechanically mixed, prior to application. Karnak #229 AR-Elastomeric brush grade should not be applied to vertical surfaces.

BRUSH APPLICATION: Apply Karnak #229 AR-Elastomeric brush grade to horizontal surfaces using a wide, fibered roof brush at the rate of 2 to 4 gallons per 100 sq. ft..

TROWEL APPLICATION: Karnak #229 AR-Elastomeric trowel grade may be applied to either vertical or horizontal surfaces using a smooth edge trowel. Coverage amount will vary depending on desired thickness. To achieve a 1/16" thickness apply at the rate of 4 gallons per 100 sq. ft.; 1/8" apply at the rate of 8 gallons per 100 sq. ft.; 1/4" thickness apply at the rate of 15 gallons per 100 sq. ft.
