Description

Britannia Aquashield Primer is great for friable roofs that need sealing and protecting, such as asbestos cladding. Whether your warehouse roof cladding needs protecting or the concrete roof on your office block needs waterproofing, this primer will act as the perfect base on which to apply the topcoat. Will also prime fibre cement corrugated sheet, but 2 coats will be required in this case.

Because Britannia Aquashield Primer is toxic to aquatic organisms, this product should not be used near fishponds.


Product Use in the Workplace

  • Library - If there's any building that can have its contents ruined by a leaking roof, it has to be a library. Even a small leak can cause a big problem; if water collects in one particular area of the roof, it has the potential to cause the ceiling to collapse, bringing a whole pool of water down all over the books.
  • Factory - Industrial roofs are usually hard-wearing, but like all roofing, needs to be well-maintained. In addition to not falling down, a good roof is one that keeps the rain and moisture out of the building. Once water can get in through the roof, it has the potential to cause erosion on metalwork, increasing the chance of damp and mould. By ensuring factory roofs are adequately waterproofed, safety can be upheld and damage can be avoided.

Features & Benefits

  • For use on highly friable/porous surfaces.
  • Solvent-based.
  • Cures in 1 day, but 2nd coat can be applied when touch dry.
  • Waterproofs instantly.
  • 2 year shelf-life.

Preparation & 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. To the dry and cleaned surface, apply a coat of Britannia Aquashield primer by brush, roller or spray at the minimum specified spreading rate as stated above under the heading. Application Temperature should be between 5°C-25°C.

Stir well before use, and no not thin. Apply a generous coat of Britannia Aquashield Waterproof Roof Coatings at the minimum specified spreading rate as stated on the data sheet.

Question: 

How much material primer and sealant will I need for a aspestos garage roof that measures six meters x two and a half meters and what would be the cost Thanks

Answer: 

When applying the Aquashield coatings to fibre cement/asbestos corrugated sheet we always recommend 'double priming' with Britannia Aquashield Primer. In this instance a popular finishing coat would be Britannia Aquashield High Build.

To apply 2 coats of Britannia Aquashield Primer followed by 1 coat of Britannia Aquashield High Build to 15m² you should require;

2 x 5lt Britannia Aquashield Primer
1 x 20kg Britannia Aquashield High Build
