Preparation and Application


Clear all areas of moss, lichen and debris by brushing or power washing and remove surface water and any contamination such as Oil or Grease and allow to dry. Apply Britannia Fungicidal Wash to prevent further fungal/algal growth.

  • Stir well before use
  • Do not thin

Most roofing substrates to be treated will not normally require priming.

To the dry and cleaned surface, apply a generous coat of Britannia Durashield Waterproof Roof Coating by brush or squeegee, at the minimum specified spreading rate as stated above under the relevant heading.

Application Temperature should be between 5°C-25°C.

 

Highly Porous/Friable Surfaces

Felted surfaces, fibrous cement corrugated cladding, sheeting and guttering should be primed with Britannia Durashield FD Primer.

Fibrous cement corrugated sheeting: two coats of Durashield FD Primer must always be applied to this substrate.

 

Porous Concrete and Masonry

Prime with Britannia Durashield FD Primer

 

Porous Weathered Asphalt and Bituminous Surfaces

Prime with Britannia Durashield FD Primer.

Note: discolouration can occur over Weathered Asphalt or Bituminous Surfaces. An extra coat may therefore be required for decorative purposes.

Do not use on new bituminous primers/coatings or surfaces.

 

OSB/Plywood and Wooden Substrates

OSB/Plywood, wooden substrates and insulation board must be treated with a 50mm wide strip of Britannia Tape (any other tape must be tested before use). A continuous surface should be created before commencing with the application of Britannia Durashield FD Primer and fully scrimmed with the built-up system (wet on wet).

 

Weathered Single-Ply Membranes*

PVC, hypalon and TPO roof membranes - see primer guide below (click to jump down)

 

Metal

All ferrous metals should be primed with Britannia Metal Primer - see the technical data sheet on the product page for details.

 

Lead

No primer required on old lead, sheet/valleys. - do not use on new lead.

 

Aluminium, Copper and Galvanised Steel

These should be primed with Britannia 1 Pack Etching Primer - see the technical data sheet on the product page for details.

 

*It is good practice to inspect and carry out adhesion tests on any existing porous coatings or substrate prior to application of the coating.

*Adhesion/pull off test required

 

Splits, cracks, joints and seals, crazed areas

Pay particular attention to clean out any splits/cracks/joints and seals by scraping or brushing off with a stiff bristle brush before applying the Britannia Durashield Primer.

Repair all faults in the surface by using a proprietary filler.

 

Surface faults

Repair all faults in the surface with either Britannia’s Reinforcing Scrim in the first of two coats or using a proprietary filler.

In areas where excessive movement may occur, additional reinforcement must be incorporated into the coating.



Scrim Recommendation


  • Apply Reinforcing Scrim to all areas which can be ponded
  • Reinforcing Scrim must be used on all upstands, curves, skylight bases and rainwater outlets
  • Reinforcing Scrim to be used on all gutter expansion joints
  • Reinforcing Scrim to be used on all repaired areas

 

Fibrous corrugated concrete sheeting and skylight surrounds

  • Apply to both horizontal and vertical laps including around ALL fixings. Before starting, carefully tighten any fixings that may be loose
  • When reinforcing the horizontal laps, ensure the reinforcement follows the profile of the sheet exactly, eliminating any possibility of air pockets being trapped under the reinforcement
  • Any cracking within the sheets should also be reinforced
  • Finish with an additional coat of Durashield over the scrimmed area



Application of Scrim


Reinforcing Scrim is embedded into the wet Durashield avoiding creasing. Adjacent lengths of the reinforcement must overlap by 75mm. Finish with one coat of Durashield.



Application of Coating


To the dry surface, apply a generous coat of Britannia Durashield by brush or roller at the specified spreading rate as stated under the heading.

The substrate and ambient temperature for the application of the system must be between 2°C and 35°C

DO NOT APPLY to frozen or damp surfaces.

DO NOT APPLY in hot direct sunlight or coating may skin. Work away from the area immediately being applied and toward a suitable escape access. Do not walk on newly coated surface whilst application is in progress.



Important


Air conditioning vents should be sealed for a minimum of 24 hours during and after the application.

  • Refer to the product data sheet (available to download from the "attachments" tab above) for more precautions.

This coating is only valid for applications in the UK.

MINIMUM FINISHED FALL: when using this product it is important that a minimum finished fall of 1:80 is achieved, as stated in BS 6229:2018 (Code of Practice for the application of Liquid Applied Waterproofing Systems to flat roofs with continuously supported coverings).



Cleaning


For all cleaning use White Spirit.
