Bitumen Roof Paint Waterproof
Waterproof Roof Paint is a bitumen based coating reinforced with rubber and fibre. This makes it flexible, unlike ordinary bitumen coatings, meaning it won't sag in the summer sun, or split as the roof naturally flexes and moves. It can be used as an emergency leak stopper or to coat and extend the life of existing roofs.

We don't recommend:
Applying Waterproof Roof Paint to bare timber to try to form a waterproof seal.
Application to EPDM or similar rubber roof membranes, as the product can soften rubber. Test on a small area if in doubt about product suitability.
How To Use:
Step 1 - Preparation:
Preparation is quite minimal. Sweep off any moss, algae or dirt. If there has been a heavy fungal infestation use a fungicide and wash off.
You can use floorsaver Waterproof Roof Paint in the rain as an emergency repair. For long term repairs the surface should be as dry as possible. When coating large areas, we recommend that they are dry as trapped moisture can delay drying.
Step 2 - Repairs:
Holes, cracks and splits can be filled using floorsaver Waterproof Roof Paint mixed with dry sand to form a stiff mortar. Prime the repair with a coat of the Waterproof Roof Paint, then trowel in the mortar.
Step 3 - Application:
• No need to stir.
• Easiest using a brush, but a roller is possible on flat, felted surfaces or flat concrete.
• Aim to use 1kg per 1m².
• Clean equipment with White Spirit.
• Drying time approximately 24 hours.
Tip - If there are 'suspect' areas of the roof such as panel overlaps or felt joints but you are intending to coat the whole roof, we recommend just running a brush line of floorsaver Waterproof Roof Paint along the join, allowing it to dry and then coating the whole roof the following day.
Rapid Ice Melt
Rapid Ice Melt rapidly and effectively melts ice and snow and is safe to use on concrete, asphalt and most surfaces. This de-icer is a quick and simple way of preventing accidents icy or snowy conditions. It is 30 times more effective than Rock Salt, and it’s cleaner to use since you are not left with a gritty residue. Unfortunately it is not pet friendly.
• Content: Calcium Chloride
• Pack Size: 6kg
• Interior/exterior usage: Suitable for exterior usage only
• Surfaces: Concrete (at least one year old) or asphalt
• Shelf Life: 12 months and if opened the container must be re-sealed so that it’s air-tight
• Coverage: Approximately 60m²
We don't recommend:
• Applying this to weak, sensitive or decorative areas without carrying out a trial area first (see Step 1).
• Applying it too thickly.
• Leaving it on for more than 1 hour.
• Applying to concrete which is less than 1 year old.
• Applying to metal – Ice Melt can cause rusting on some metal surfaces.
• Applying if the temperature drops below -30°C.
How To Use
Step 1 – Preparation
Sweep away any build-up of snow using a stiff broom. If this isn’t practical move on to Step 2.
Ice Melt is safe to use on most surfaces, however, for weak, sensitive or decorative areas (such as coloured surfaces or tiles) where staining or potential damage may be an issue, we recommend that a small test area is carried out before using it over the main area.
Step 2 – Application
Lightly sprinkle Floorsaver Ice Melt (wearing plastic gloves) over the snow or ice and within a few seconds it will start to work.
Do not put it on too thickly – aim to cover 60m2 per 6kg container.
After 1 hour sweep the area again to remove any remaining Ice Melt. Do not leave it on for more than 1 hour.
