B.
Mixing of Kempertec AC Primer:
1.
Premix primer Component A thoroughly with a spiral agitator or stir stick.
2.
Determine the correct amount of catalyst Component B based upon ambient temperature in accordance with written instructions of Membrane Manufacturer.
3.
Add primer catalyst Component B into Component A and mix the components for approximately 2 minutes with a clean spiral agitator on slow speed or stir stick without creating any bubbles or streaks.
4.
Do not aerate. Primer solution should be a uniform color, with no light or dark streaks present.
C.
Application:
1.

2.
Porous substrates may require an adjustment to the primer application rate or multiple coats to achieve proper pore saturation.
3.
Exposure of the primer in excess of 48 hours or premature exposure to moisture may require removal and reapplication of primer. DO NOT apply new primer over primer prematurely exposed to moisture, or primer used as temporary roofing/waterproofing, unless approved in writing by the Membrane Manufacturer.
3.7
MEMBRANE APPLICATION

3.
Primed substrate surface shall be dry, with any remaining dust or loose particles removed using clean, dry, oil-free compressed air, industrial vacuum, cloth-wipe or a combination.

After the Resin is mixed, using a Kemperol roller nap or brush, apply 2/3 of the resin liberally and evenly onto the surface. Covering one working area at a time, between 10 - 15 sq.ft.
2.
Roll the Kemperol Fleece directly into the Resin, making sure the SMOOTH SIDE IS FACING UP (natural unrolling procedure), avoiding folds and wrinkles. The fleece will begin to rapidly saturate with the liquid resin mix. Use the roller or brush to work the resin into the fleece, saturating from the bottom up, and eliminating air bubbles, wrinkles, etc. It is important to correct these faults before the resin cures.
3.
Apply the remaining 1/3 of the resin to the top of fleece to complete the saturation. Rolling the final coat of resin onto the fleece should result in a glossy appearance. The fleece can only hold so much resin and all excess should be rolled forward to the unsaturated portion of the fleece. The correct amount of resin will completely saturate the fleece and no white color will be visible. Work wet membrane to avoid any blisters, openings, or lifting at corners, junctions, and transitions. Always assure full resin saturation of fleece.
4.
Prevent contact between mixed/unmixed resin and new/existing membrane. If any unmixed resin contacts membrane surface remove immediately and clean thoroughly with a cloth rag.
5.
At all fleece seams, allow a 2 inch (5 cm) overlap for all side joints and a 4 inch (10 cm) overlap for all end joints.
6.
At membrane tie-offs, clean in-place membrane with MEK when resin has cured. Allow solvents to fully evaporate before application of new resin. DO NOT APPLY PRIMER TO EXISTING KEMPEROL MEMBRANE.

SURFACING AND FINISHES
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Select one or both of the following surfacing paragraphs to match the application required. Delete if not applicable..
 
A.
Aggregate Finish Surfacing
1.
Where specified, provide and install approved kiln-dried silica sand, or other approved mineral surfacing to achieve an aesthetic and/or non-skid surface.
2.
Pre-mix single-component and two-component coatings prior to application to achieve an even consistency.
3.
Broadcast specified and approved sand or aggregate in excess into a bonding coat application of Membrane Manufacturer's approved methyl methacrylate-based aggregate coating system applied over clean, cured membrane at the manufacturer's recommended application rate. Aggregate shall be applied to excess to obtain uniform and full coverage.
4.
Following minimum 2 hour cure time remove loose/un-embedded mineral aggregate by blowing with oil-free compressed air or with a vacuum. Re-broadcast clean mineral aggregate as required to provide full embedment and coverage of membrane.
5.
Seal aggregate surface with a sealing coat application of Membrane Manufacturer's approved aggregate coating, applied at the manufacturer's recommended application rate. After completion of surfacing, avoid any traffic for a minimum of 3 hours to allow for surfacing to cure.
B.
Coating-Type Finish Surfacing
1.
Where specified, provide and install Membrane Manufacturer's approved methyl methacrylate-based or acrylic-based coating applied over clean, fully cured membrane at the manufacturer's recommended application rate.
2.
Pre-mix single-component and two-component coatings prior to application to achieve an even consistency and color. Mix thoroughly for approximately 2 minutes with a clean spiral agitator or stir stick without creating any bubbles or streaks. Do not aerate.
3.
Apply coating at the manufacturer's recommended application rate. Two coating applications are recommended for best coverage and appearance. After completion of coating, avoid any traffic for a minimum of 2 hours to allow for surfacing to cure.
C.
Adhesion Key:
1.
Where placement of cementitious or non-cementitious materials is required over sections of the roofing/waterproofing membrane or flashing, apply manufacturer's methyl methacrylate primer/coating at the manufacturer's recommended coverage rate, with broadcast to excess of kiln-dried silica sand into wet primer/coating.

2.
Gradually add Component C (white graded fillers) to the liquid while mixing continues for an additional 30-40 seconds until a smooth, lump free mix is produced.
