United Coatings™ Roof Mate Butter Grade Flashing
Roof Mate Butter Grade Flashing is a water-based, high solids elastomeric sealant utilizing the latest advances in advanced acrylic technology. Its thick, buttery consistency allows it to be easily worked into vertical seams on metal roofs, gaps in flashings and around protrusions, and into heavily alligatored areas in weathered built-up roofing.
PACKAGING & SHELF LIFE
2 gallon (7.6 liter) bucket
5 gallon (19 liter) pail
Shelf life 18 months if unopened containers stored between 40°F and 70°F (4°C - 21°C).
Roof Mate Butter Grade Flashing has very high volume solids for low shrinkage but does not utilize plasticizers. It dries twice as fast as a coating and at the same time it provides increased tensile strength and elongation on problem roof areas, as well. It is ideally suited for sealing mechanical fasteners and horizontal seams on metal roofs, as well as around flashings, drains and protrusions. It has excellent adhesion to asphaltic roofing, metal, concrete, wood, Hypalon, PVC and polyurethane foam, and can also be used for encapsulating Roof Mate Fabric.

SUBSTRATE PREPARATION: All existing surfaces must be dry and free from dirt, dust, grease, oil, pollution fallout, and other contaminants that may interfere with proper adhesion. Any primers that are to be utilized on the roof surface should be applied prior to application of any Roof Mate Butter Grade Flashing. See gaf.com for more details.
APPLICATION: Apply with a putty knife, spatula, or stiff-bristle brush. Apply up to 1/4 (6 mm) thick. Apply the Roof Mate Butter Grade Flashing in sufficient quantity to encapsulate fastener heads and completely seal the seam or crack being treated, extending 1 2 inches (25 52 mm) on either side of the opening. A stiff-bristle brush should be utilized for working it into seams, cracks, and alligatored areas. When sealing vertical seams on metal roof decks, the Roof Mate Butter Grade Flashing should be worked up into the seam with a brush.
LIMITATIONS & PRECAUTIONS
Roof Mate Butter Grade Flashing will freeze and become unusable at temperatures below 32°F (0°C). Do not store or ship material if there is a possibility of freezing temperatures. Do not apply if Roof Mate Butter Grade Flashing cannot cure prior to exposure to freezing temperatures, rain or heavy dew.
