Product description:
Isonit is a water dilutable roof coating based on acrylic dispersions.

Product properties and use:
Isonit is used for roofs of fibre cement, concrete roof tiles, and primed steel roofs.
The coating flows well, has high covering strength, good adhesion abilities and creates a good strong water-repellent surface.
Not usable on clay tiles and natural slate.

The practical spreading rate depends on application method, form and surface of the material.

The roof must be cleaned thoroughly using high-pressure and Iso A-Clean. Fibre cement roofs have to be primed with Eternit Primer in order to obtain a sustainable surface (see TDS).
The surface must be clean, dry, and sustainable.

The coating must be stirred before use.

If Isonit is used as primer (first layer), dilute with min. 20 % water.
If Isonit is used as a top coat, apply the coating non-diluted or diluted with max. 10 % water.

Application temperature:
The temperature must be between 8° C and 30° C, and
Application method:
Brush, roller, or airless, nozzles 19 – 21, 180 – 220 bar.
To ensure the right layer thickness, apply the paint in two layers, each with a layer thickness of 200 µm.

If Eternit Primer is used, the right layer thickness can be obtained with only one topcoat (min 200 µm).

Always make a test coat to ensure the compatibility of product and surface.

It is recommended to maintain coated roofs with a treatment with Iso A-Clean every second year – in order to keep the surface nice and clean.
