LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating is made of selected asphalts and pigment flakes of pure aluminum, blended with petroleum solvents and mineral fibers. When LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating is applied to the roof, the aluminum flakes leaf to the surface, forming a reflective, metallic shield over the base material.

The advantages of this metallic aluminum shield are twofold:

The asphaltic oils in the base coating are protected from harmful intense rays of the sun by the reflective properties of the aluminum. Over 50% of the sun's rays are reflected by this aluminum shield, thereby preventing these oils from being "cooked" out of the base coating. The coating, therefore, retains its resilient characteristics and will not prematurely crack or dry out.
During the hot summer months, LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating will help reduce indoor building temperatures and improve inside living and working conditions. LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating prevents the sun's rays from penetrating the roof coating and passing the heat into the building interior.

The combination of these protective materials-aluminum, asphalt and reinforcing fibers - by the exclusive LionGUARD process results in a self-protecting roof coating with longer-lasting moisture and heat resistant features. LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating remains tenaciously bonded to the base material, thus assuring longer roof life, with subsequent savings on roof maintenance.

SURFACE PREPARATION
All surfaces should be clean, dry and free of dust, dirt, oil and other foreign matter. Repair all cracks and blisters. New asphalt roof surfaces should weather a minimum of 90 days before being coated with LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating. However, LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating can be coated on roofs 5 to 7 days after LionGUARD asphalt emulsions have been applied.

APPLICATION
LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating should be spread uniformly over the roof surface. Care should be taken not to overwork the coating during application. This could have a damaging effect on the leafing of the aluminum. Pour the correct amount of aluminum coating to cover a given area and apply uniformly. Be sure to mechanically mix the aluminum coating thoroughly before using. LionGUARD Premium Fibered Aluminum Coating can be applied with a soft roof brush, roller or spray.

COVERAGE
Apply at the rate of 1 to 1.5 gallons per 100 sq.

CARE OF TOOLS
Tools and other equipment should be thoroughly cleaned after use with mineral spirits, taking the necessary precautions when handling combustible materials.

CAUTION
Do not use near open flame. Avoid breathing solvent fumes and prolonged contact with skin. Do not take internally. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately. Keep out of reach of children. Keep container covered when not in use. Do not thin. Dispose of in an environmentally safe manner. Cover air intakes during application and while drying.

PACKAGING
Available in 5 gallon pails.
