Roof Mate™ Base Coat is a water-based acrylic elastomer coating utilizing the latest advances in acrylic technology. It combines acrylic emulsion polymers, powerful biocides and non-migrating fire retardants for superior physical properties, adhesion, durability, weatherproofing, mildew resistance and fire retardancy. The fire retardant chemicals are permanently locked into the cured coating and will not leach out upon extended weathering. Roof Mate™ Base Coat is a “breathing” coating, allowing moisture vapor to pass through the film while remaining resistant to mass water penetration.

Uses and Advantages
Roof Mate™ Base Coat was especially developed for use in embedding reinforcement fabric at detail areas. It is also
used for achieving film build prior to topcoating with Roof Mate™, Roof Mate™ QS, Roof Mate™ HT or RoofShield Coating.
It is formulated to achieve superior adhesion over metal, conventional built-up, modified bitumen, single-ply, concrete,
board-stock and sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam, and composite shingle roof substrates. Roof Mate™ Base Coat
forms an elastomeric seal, uniformly covering the textured profile of these substrates.
Roof Mate™ Base Coat is available in standard gray color, which provides for a high visual contrast with the application of the subsequent Roof Mate™ Coat. Roof Mate™ Coat is available in White, Solar Gray, Light Tan and Tan.
