Surface Preparation

All surfaces to be clean, dry, sound and free of all laitance, grease, oil or loose and flaking particles.

Bonding / Priming

All surfaces (except metal) – Mix 1 part super laycryl® with 1 part clean water and prime total area to be covered. As a guide, 0.1 L of super laycryl® mixed with 0.1 L of water will prime an area of 0.75 m².  Allow to dry for ± 30 minutes.
Metal surfaces only – Prime with 4-metal primer. This not only gives excellent adhesion but resists rust. Allow to dry for
4 hours. Note: Do not use solvent based bituminous solutions as a primer.

2.1 L/mfor total system.


First coat (all surfaces after priming) – Brush or roll on a fairly thick coat of super laycryl® (1 L/m²). Bed the membrane into the wet coat by using a roller or a stiff brush, avoiding the formation of bubbles or wrinkles. On flat surfaces, it is recommended to use a fluted aluminium roller. Membrane overlaps should be a minimum of 100 mm on end laps and 75 mm on side laps.

Second coat – Once the first coat has dried sufficiently to take working traffic (2 – 3 hours depending upon weather), apply a second coat of super laycryl® (0.5 L/m²) to ensure the membrane is completely saturated.

Third and final coat – When the second coat is dry, apply a finishing coat of super laycryl® at right angles to the second coat (0.5 L/m²).


Tools, brushes and mixing equipment should be cleaned immediately after use and before material has set with abe® super brush cleaner followed by washing with soap and water.

Protection on Completion

Whilst super laycryl® is designed for extended life, it is important to apply a maintenance coat (super laycryl®) every 2 to
3 years to validate the product warrantee.

Note: Do not cover with stones or stone chippings

Temperature & Relative Humidity

Do not apply super laycryl® if rain is imminent or if the temperature is below 5 °C.
