Maintains color integrity, prevents fading and chalking
Clearkote may be rolled or sprayed, with spraying as the preferred method
Water based, soap and water cleanup
Resists dirt pick up with its gloss finish
Extends the wear life of roof coatings
SHOWER-PROOF "WB" Clearkote is a 100% Acrylic Polymer Coating. It is designed as a clear gloss coat over Calbar Showerproof "WB" roof paints, where the flat finish of "WB" may be undesirable. Clearkote provides an additional protective coating which in most cases will extend the life of the color coat. It also maintains color integrity and aids in dirt pickup resistance. Three year exposure results show excellent durability with virtually no loss in appearance or film integrity. Clearkote dries to a tough, flexible clear gloss finish.
Shower-proof WB Clearkote is NOT available in any color. It's 'clear'.
CAUTION: READ THIS ENTIRE DATA SHEET BEFORE CONTINUING It is recommended that you top coat with ClearKote as soon as possible to eliminate the possibility of dirt accumulation on the freshly painted surface. Apply by roller or spray to a uniform film thickness. When rolling, always end your stroke going in the same direction. Use 1/4" nap roller. Control gloss by film thickness. It's better to apply 2 thin coats, rather then 1 heavy coat. (Heavy coats can cause 'hazzing') When spraying, avoid excessive over-spray / dry spray. Product is ready to apply, do not thin.
If you are applying Clearkote over any product besides Showerproof "WB", we strongly recommend that proper adhesion and compatability to your painting application be tested. Always keep the unused portion of paint in a closed container and in an area where there is no threat of freezing.
Weather and surface temperatures are critical when applying Calbar "WB" Clearkote. Paint only when weather conditions are warm and dry. Apply only at temperatures from 40 degrees F to 85 degrees F (air and surface). Do not paint if rain is forecast within 48 hours of application. Starting after 10 am and stopping 3 hours before the sun goes down gives the best results. Moisture from the evening dew may cause an unsatisfactory appearance. Never paint over condensation. Painting at temperatures above 85 degrees F will cause all coatings to dry too quickly, resulting in poor adhesion, flow and leveling. Re-coating too quickly can delay thorough drying and cause bubbling and wrinkling. Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for complete health and environmental information.
