Are Ultra Clear Roof Sealants VOC compliant?
DAP Ultra Clear Roof Sealants are VOC compliant in all 50 states, meaning no separate SKUs to set up and manage for different states.
How are Ultra Clear Roof Sealants better than asphalt repair products?
The crystal clear clarity of Ultra Clear Roof provides a better blend with surfaces, especially lighter colored building materials. Additionally, they won’t fade, chalk or crack over time. In general, they provide a better, cleaner finished appearance.
Why are there different sizes of Ultra Clear Roof Sealants?
To suit the different sizes and types of projects. The cartridge is ideal for tight spaces and to provide precision application such as seams and joints in gutter troughs and downspouts. The quart and gallon sizes are ideal for when a brush application is desired and for wider surface areas and larger projects. The quart’s easy grip ergo container is also ideal for working on a ladder.
What is the difference between immediate rain ready and wet/damp surface application?
Wet or damp surface application means that the surface the sealant is being applied to doesn’t have to be dry – it can be wet or damp. It is preferable that any standing water be removed, and Ultra Clear Roof can’t be applied over frost. Immediate rain ready means that the sealant can be exposed to a rain shower after application and won’t wash away. This means improved productivity because you don’t have to wait for a long period of clear weather conditions to apply. It also eliminates the worry of having the job ruined and needing to reapply.
Why is low temperature flexibility important?
A sealant and coating, especially one that’s used outside, needs to be able to stand up to the elements such as temperature fluctuations, snow, rain, UV exposure, heat and humidity. A sealant that stays flexible will be able to withstand these fluctuations without cracking or losing adhesion and maintain its strong seal. DAP Ultra Clear Roof passes the stringent ASTM 793 test for cold temperature flexibility, unlike some other competitive products. In this demanding test, sealants are weathered for 250 hours, placed in a freezer at -26°C for 24 hours and then flexed over a ½” mandrel. Ultra Clear Roof passed without cracking, unlike most of the competitive sealants.
