PART 3 - EXECUTION

3.01 MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTIONS

 

A.A. Compliance: Comply with Acrylabs product data, recommendations, and installation instructions for substrate verification, preparation requirements, and installation.

3.02 EXAMINATION

A. Examine the substrates, flashing conditions, penetrations, equipment supports, curbs, adjoining construction and the conditions under which the work is to be installed. Do not proceed with the work until unsatisfactory conditions have been corrected and substrate is acceptable.

B. Applicator shall be responsible for providing a proper substrate to receive the Acrylabs roofing system.

C. Verify that substrate is dry and free of oil, grease, dust, rust, or other contaminant.

D. Defects in substrate shall be noted and work shall not proceed until such defects have been corrected.

 

3.03 PREPARATION


A. Do not proceed with installation until projections through the Acrylabs membrane such as piping, drains, conduit, vents and ducts have been installed. Holes shall be patched or filled and finished flush in accordance with Acrylabs directions. Cut off high spots and grind smooth as applicable.

B. Substrate: After existing roofing systems are cleaned and repaired, as required, but prior to starting new roofing system installation work, complete all substrate corrective actions required. Substrate shall be smooth, dry, and free of debris.

C. The roof must be completely free of dust, dirt, oil, debris, or other contaminants before application of Acrylabs coatings or sealants. If any contaminants are found, they must be removed by appropriate means.

D. Protect area or surfaces not designated to receive Acrylabs coatings against any damage or defacement resulting from the Acrylabs System Application

 

3.04 INSTALLATION


A. Following inspection and acceptance of substrate condition, install the Acrylabs R45 Roof System using minimum coverage indicated in the manufacturer's guidelines. Adherence to guidelines will yield a minimum membrane thickness of 45 mils over entire surface covered.


B. Apply reinforcement fabric and basecoat to field of roof:

    1. Apply tack coat of 2100B at approximately 1.25 gallons per 100 sq. ft. Immediately embed MESH 2000 Polyester Reinforcement into wet coating. Care must be taken to lay the fabric to the contact surface avoiding wrinkles, fishmouths, etc.

    2. Roller or brush shall be used to insure that Mesh 2000 is fully embedded.

    3. After embedding MESH 2000 into wet coating apply an additional coat of 2100B, at a minimum rate of 1.52 gallon per 100 sq. ft. completely saturating Mesh 2000 fabric.

    4. Achieve a total of 25 mil base membrane thickness.

C. Apply flashings at roof penetrations and detail work:

    1. 1. All flashings must be completed in accordance with published Acrylabs details before final application of 2100 Finish Coatings.

    2. 2. Apply heavy coat of 2100B to the area to be flashed, and embed Mesh 2000 Reinforcement Fabric into wet coating.

    3. 3. Brush shall be used to insure that Mesh 2000 is fully embedded.

    4. 4. Apply additional coating to the top of fabric taking care to completely saturate fabric and provide a weatherproof seal.

D. Repair all fishmouths, bridging, or other defects in the previously applied Mesh 2000 Reinforcement Fabric by cutting excess fabric, if required, and making necessary repairs using Mesh 2000 and 2100B.


E. Apply intermediate coat: Apply first coat of 2100 to entire surface previously covered with Mesh 2000 reinforcement fabric including field of roof, gussets, penetrations, and perimeter locations. A minimum of 1.25 gallon of 2100 per 100 sq. ft. is required.


F. Apply finish coat in color specified: Apply finish coat of 2100 to entire surface previously coated. A minimum of 1 gallon of 2100 per 100 sq. ft. is required.


G. If necessary apply additional 2100, where required, to ensure that the minimum 45 mils total membrane thickness is achieved.

3.05 FIELD QUALITY REQUIREMENTS


A. Verify final film thickness as specified. If specified dry film thickness has not been achieved, application of additional coating will be required.


B. Visually inspect critical areas of the roof including roof seams and penetrations and touch up with additional Acrylabs coatings to ensure complete and adequate coverage.

 

3.06 FINAL CLEANING


A. Except as otherwise provided for remove temporary protection devices and facilities which were installed during the course of the work.


B. Clean project site, sweep paved areas, rake clean other surfaces of roofing debris.


C. Remove debris, surplus materials and trash from project site.


D. All soiled surfaces shall be cleaned using approved materials and methods.

 

3.07 PROTECTION OF COMPLETED MEMBRANE


A. Protect completed membrane from damage by work of other trades. Schedule sequence of work so that traffic over new membrane is minimized. Institute required procedures for protection of completed membrane during installation of work from other trades throughout remainder of construction period. Do not allow traffic of any type on unprotected membrane.


B. At completion of construction activities of other trades, touch-up and restore damaged or defaced coated surfaces. Correct damage by cleaning, repairing, replacing, and/or recoating to make acceptable to the specifier and/or Acrylabs Inc. Leave in an undamaged condition.
