GacoFlex BleedTrap is a single-component, easy-to-apply water-based sealer for use on asphalt roofing substrates containing bitumen, including built-up roofing (BUR), all types of ModBit, and smooth or granulated asphaltic roofing membranes. It was developed to encapsulate the oil that commonly exudes from asphalt substrates and effectively traps it within the sealer to inhibit bleed-through to GacoFlex Silicone Coatings.
- INHIBITS BLEED-THROUGH. BleedTrap Sealer traps the oily liquids that exude through a conventional silicone coating and prevents dark stains caused by asphalt bleed-through.
- WORKABILITY. BleedTrap Sealer was designed to be part of a full system of integrated GacoFlex products and to be used in conjunction with GacoFlex Silicone Coatings.
- EXCEPTIONAL FILM BUILD. The exceptional film build of BleedTrap Sealer provides a smoother surface for easy top coat application of GacoFlex Silicone Coatings.
- CLEANS UP WITH WATER. BleedTrap Sealer is an single-component, water-based sealer that cleans up easily with soap and water.
THEORETICAL COVERAGE: When applied to most roofing surfaces coverage is one gallon per 100 square feet yielding 8 dry mils. NOTE: Actual coverage may be less due to surface profile, losses due to overspray and wind, and residual coating left in the container.
WEATHERABILITY: Not designed for continuous exterior exposure. Must be coated with GacoFlex Silicone Coatings within one week. If not coated within 72 hours the coating should be lightly cleaned with GacoWash Concentrated Cleaner and allowed to fully dry before coating.
- Weight: 62%
- Volume: 48%
THINNING: Product should not be thinned.
APPLICATION: BleedTrap may be brushed, rolled or spray applied at the rate of one gallon per 100 square feet. Continuous 8-dry-mil coverage is very important to ensure complete blocking of oil migration to the surface.
DRY TIME: While BleedTrap will exhibit early rain resistance in as little as 30 minutes, it should be allowed to thoroughly dry prior to application of primer or top coat. Allow a minimum of 12 hours before applying top coat.
APPLICATION OF TOP COATS: GacoFlex S2100 White Cleanable Solvent-Free Silicone Coating requires a primer coat of GacoFlex E5320 2-Part Epoxy Primer/Filler be applied over BleedTrap prior to application of silicone top coat. Apply E5320 Primer according to application instructions and allow the primer to dry before applying GacoFlex S2100.
A wet adhesion test should be performed with GacoFlex S20 Series applications over A4207 to eliminate the need for E5320 Primer. If the test shows poor adhesion, apply a primer coat of E5320 Primer according to label directions; allow primer to dry completely before applying silicone top coat. Contact Gaco Western Technical Services at 800-456-4226 for instructions on how to perform a wet adhesion test.
GacoRoof Silicone Coatings may be applied directly over BleedTrap once it is thoroughly dry; no primer is typically required but an adhesion test should be performed.
