Product Description

Dulux Weathershield Roof Primer is a solventbased vinyl-toluene acrylate primer which improves Roofshield adhesion on weathered tiles. Weathered roof tiles are often friable and chalky even after cleaning by scrubbing or high pressure water jetting. Unless properly cleaned before painting, the paint will often flake on aging due to these dirty and weak substrates.

Application Description

To ensure good wetting and penetration, thin with Dulux Thinner 850-41 or white spirit. On cool tiles, thin up to 10%. On hot tiles, thin up to 25% to overcome the quick solvent evaporation.
