Description

ROOF X TENDER® 99 Cold Weather Primer is a high penetrating primer developed specifically for ROOF X TENDER® tapes. ROOF X TENDER® 99 is based on VOC exempt solvents and synthetic adhesive polymers to provide an aggressive bonding agent for use in cold weather applications and on difficult to adhere surfaces. RXT-99 meets federal environmental standards from an atmospheric pollution regulatory perspective and is designed to work with all ROOF X TENDER® tapes. This product should be used on applications using ROOF X TENDER® Tapes when temperatures fall between -30°F and 40°F. It is also widely used as a coalescing agent on surfaces which have difficult to remove dirt or particulate matter. Finally, it is a great primer for porous surfaces such as concrete, brick, mortar and wood to improve adhesion of ROOF X TENDER® tape products. This product is not recommended for use on PVC.

PREPARATION

All surfaces must be dry prior to application. Using appropriate brush or tool, remove all dirt, debris, talc, rust, scale, grease, and any other foreign contaminants that are present prior to application. Do not use ROOF X TENDER® 99 Primer on PVC roofs. In extreme cold weather keep the rolls warm to aid adhesion. In hot weather (80°F+) keep rolls in a cooler and/or shade to aid in application.

APPLICATION

For exterior use only. Protective clothing and eye wear should be used during application of these products. Always mix product before and during application. RXT-99 can be applied using a roller or brush. RXT-99 is used to prepare surfaces for application of all Roof X Tender® tapes. It is recommended to store product at ambient room temperatures before using in freezing temperatures. This will simply make application easier and help provide a thin and consistent film. Do not allow primer to puddle or allow accumulation in low spots. Primer should be applied in a smooth and continuous thin film over the desired area extending 2″ past area to be taped in all directions. Coverage rate is approx. 200 sq. ft./gal.
