ONE MATERIAL SUPPLER ··· ONE INSTALLATION TEAM ··· ONE WARRANTY
WeatherALL Coating Technologies offers a complete all-in-one warranty policy for the complete job materials and the installation.
Our on-site field engineers work directly in combination with our central office engineering and in turn with our chemical laboratories to select the appropriate complete materials system and application enginering to align with the client's ideas, budget and desired warrantied longevity. The warranty covers the complete cost of job materials, standard maintenance program and immediate repair labor if needed. A completely turn-key start-to-finish project under 1 warranty. A turn-key partnership with warranties provisions for the fully-warrantied-term with periodic site inspections from our field engineering group. Please contact our Engineering Technical Support Groups to handle your next project to engineer the solution, determine the required material performance system to use and provide the qualified installation team.

As with all coating systems an applicator has to have a knowledge of the preparation of different surface, required tools and equipment, proper application procedures and manufacturers guidelines prior to undertaking a full scale application in a particular environment. WeatherALL Coatings Technologies believes the importance in securing a sound application lies in these understandings and our goal is to have our product users having the same understanding. In the following paragraphs we will cover these specific areas of required application knowledge the what the applicator must think about prior to any installation. As a standard practice, it is always best to perform apply the coating to a small test area to validate adhesion, gel-time, cure time, application techniques, application defects, texture, colors, etc. It is also the best means for the final customer to approve the system. This will save everyone an incredible amount of money, time and embarrassment.
As a leader in chemical coating technology WeatherALL's materials and coating systems required the use of many different and sometimes expensive application equipment. Below we have listed the typical equipment and tools normally used to produce a quality installation of our systems. Please ask our technical support group to help choose the appropriate material system and associated required equipment, tools and proper procedural methods of application for your particular task.
Understanding Coating Fundamentals
There are alot of contractors who we run across who say they know exactly how to apply and handle our high performance coating systems. We have found that is not true as evidence as seen in the final application result. It must be said that reading and thoroughly understanding are 2 different things. WeatherALL's material application guidelines must be followed to ascertain proper results in all reactive coating systems while choosing the correct coating's physical properties and know its limitations. This information is found on each product's Technical Data Sheet (TDS). Applicators need to know what are the expectations of the coating from the customer's application specifications. Typical concerns may be the coating's chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, surface hardness, flexibility, tear strength, etc. Please contact our Technical Groups to gain proper insight into all material systems listed within this website.
Recognize all conditions of the substrate to which the coating is to be applied.
Typical conditions which will affect the coating's adhesion, cure time and coating longevity are surface contaminations, moisture in the pores of the substrate, substrate gassing or emissivity of the substrate, temperature, surface abrasion or roughness profile, cement cream remaining in the pores, etc. It is critical to understand the type of material to be coated such as we cannot bond to olefin based materials- Polypropylene, Polyethylene, nylons, etc. If there is any question as to the type of material substrates which may be coated, please contact out Technical Group for answers.
Recognize all conditions of the environment where the application is to take place.
Temperature and moisture always affect the material's gel time or working time, adhesion characteristics and of course overall cure time. Another very important factor is the amount of air movement for waterborne materials. These coatings require a constant movement of air for the water carrier in the coating to evaporate during the curing reaction.
Material storage is another very important concern to producing a quality installation.
All WeatherALL coating systems containers need to stored in a dry room with a temperature range of 50°F-80°F. Materials MUST BE KEPT FROM FREEZING.
Material Mixing and Stirring:These are the most overlooked but crucial areas for any coating system application. For one-component materials we want to high shear in the colorant or the pigments thoroughly before applying the coating. Heavier pigmented colors tend to sometime settle with gravity within the base mixture. We want to also mix together A/B material component systems using a high shear mixer so generically all type of liquid coating systems require a proper power mixer. The key to stirring or mixing is to NOT induce air into the liquid. The only way to eliminate the air-inducing tornadic funnel is to slow down spin. We do NOT need any air diffusing out of our coating to give us any pinhole looking defect in our application. Always use a good shear mixer to stir thoroughly.
Tools & Equipment for WeatherALL Technology Coating Systems:
WeatherALL produces one-component and two-component coating systems either being 100% solids with no VOCs or waterborne based. One-component systems such as Lifetime Residential, a one-component waterborne system, may be spray applied using a standard airless sprayer, hand roller or brush. The product can back-label will show icons like these:
For all of WeatherALL's waterborne coating materials, both one-component and two-component, may use water as the primary wet clean-up to rinse out the heavy resin liquids. Final rinsing needs to be using denatured alcohol to thoroughly clean-out the residual resin. All other of WeatherALL Coatings Technologies™ products require the use of medium grade solvent such as lacquer thinner or acetone for wet clean up only. Use a chisel when any of WeatherALL's coatings systems are cured. Always read the Product's Technical Data sheet and the back of the can label for each product to be used first.
