Frequently Asked Questions
My laminate is still wet and TriRoof resin is uncured
Larger laminate areas may need replacing completely scrape up the resin and start again.
Recheck the ambient temperature before mixing resin with catalyst, using a graduated mixing bucket and if in doubt contact technical support. <ahref=”[email protected]”>[email protected]</ahref=”[email protected]”>
My resin has cured before it is been applied and consolidated
If your ambient temperature is too hot – try a slow release catalyst.
Reduce the sizes of each batch made.
Lay the shortest run possible to give you enough time to consolidate the laminate.
It has started raining
Cover the roof with the damp proof membrane to ensure that none of the laminate gets any moisture into it. Cover and only continue when the surface and weather are completely dry.
Resin contaminated with water will not cure and will require a re-skin. Resin contaminated with water often goes milky/cloudy.
When the area is completely dry, sand with 40-grit sandpaper and wipe with acetone. Re-laminate with a 100mm overlap.
My resin has only partially cured
Try adding a thin coat of catalysed resin to the partially cured laminate to seal it off before adding topcoat.
There is debris in my laminate
There are a couple of things you can try
- Debris should be removed and patched over
- Clean the resin off the surface before it is cured using acetone.
- If it is on a shiny surface, use a sharp edge knife or rub with a coarse cloth to remove then buff with a wax polish or cutting compound.
- Larger spills – use a hot pressure washer and strong detergent – though this can further damage the surface.
- Always mask adjacent areas and use a Polythene sheet where possible
After Laying TriRoof
My laminate is springy
Cover the roof with the damp proof membrane to ensure that none of the laminate gets any moisture into it. Cover and only continue when the surface and weather are completely dry. Resin contaminated with water often looks milky/cloudy, it will not cure and will require a re-skin.
There are cracks appearing
There are a couple of things you can do. • Check the board fixing – if they have pulled away from the joists re-join them. You can also grind down and laminate over the crack with two layers of 450g/m2 of CSM, sand and acetone to remove the topcoat.
There are Pinholes
If the laminate has not cured, add more catalysed resin. If the area has cured, reapply resin and patch using a reinforcement mat.
Remember! Do not use topcoat to attempt to cover pin holes. This will not work.
Colour has started to fade
Clean down with acetone and re-topcoat the roof. If you need to you can re-skin the roof with another laminate and topcoat.
