GEI FR Emulsion

 

Product Description

 
GEI-FR EMULSION is an ecologically preferred non-fibered fire retardant containing no Asbestos or solvents. It is water-based, non-flammable and breathable.
 
GEI-FR EMULSION offers outstanding resistance to weather, cracking and most industrial pollutants. The emulsion has excellent resistance to heat that can build up on roofs and will not sag, flow, or re-emulsify under any weather conditions.
 
It can be used over smooth or mineral composition built-up roofing, or as a protective surface for metal roofing, masonry, stucco, parapet walls, curb and base flashings.
 
GEI-FR EMULSION provides an excellent base coat for GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s RoofCoat, AsbestoSafe® and Your Last Coat architectural coatings.

Product Installation

 
GEI-FR EMULSION is ready to use and should never be diluted with water before application. Surfaces to be sealed must be
clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, oil, or other contaminants, which could interfere with proper adhesion.
 
 
GEI-FR EMULSION may be spray, brush or squeegee applied. Allow to dry thoroughly, normally 12 hours, before applying topcoats. DO NOT apply topcoats until GEI-FR EMULSION is completely dry.
 
GEI-FR EMULSION should not be applied at temperatures below 50°F or if weather conditions will not permit cure before rain, dew, or freezing temperatures. Cool temperatures and high humidity retard cure. Product should be protected from freezing.
