A Premium Quality, 100% Acrylic Resin-Based, Waterborne Coating for use on sloped/inclined surfaces to help Seal, Waterproof, Windproof, Protect & Preserve your roof. "ROOF MASTIC" is a waterborne, heavy-duty, exceptionally durable, clear, non-yellowing coating that will seal, waterproof, protect and preserve roof surfaces, including asphalt/fiberglass roof shingles, curved Spanish clay barrel tiles, flat concrete tiles, etc. Also available in "Energy Star"® White and 5 stock colors. Use SOMAY Product No. 777, Premium "PST" (below) as Primer under Product No. 842-00, "ROOF MASTIC" "CLEAR". Product No. 842-00 has all of the features and benefits of SOMAY Product No. 777. However, instead of being a thin viscosity like water to be able to penetrate into the open pores, cracks and crevices of surfaces, Product 842-00 has a thick viscosity like paste, so the applicator can build the desired 20 mils DFT per coat or the 40 mils DFT for two coats necessary to achieve waterproofing, windproofing and hurricane proofing benefits. Dries "Crystal Clear". See "Waterproofing Coatings" for more information. At 48% Vol. Solids = 750 sq.ft./gal./mil DFT = 3¢/sq.ft./mil DFT.

A Premium Quality, 100% poly-acrylic, waterborne, universal, all-purpose, exterior and interior, clear, non-yellowing coating that can be used as a Primer, a Sealer and a Topcoat or Finish Coating. It has excellent resistance to ultraviolet (sun) light degradation, excellent adhesion to practically every properly cleaned and prepared surface, and dries to a hard finish that has excellent resistance to wear due to normal pedestrian traffic. No solvents, no fumes … exceptionally user and environmentally friendly. "PST" will NOT "blush" or turn "white" if moisture develops under the coating, but will remain clear. Because SOMAY "PST" will always "breathe", it allows moisture vapor to escape through the cured coating film. "PST" can be applied to concrete, stucco, masonry, non-glazed porous brick, stone, concrete blocks, coral rocks and other porous decorative façade materials, wood shingles, wood siding, wood decks, docks or porch floor surfaces, wood paneling (interior and exterior), metal including aluminum, copper, brass, zinc, galvanized steel or primed tin or ferrous metal.
