Clean thoroughly by removing all foreign matter with a wire brush, hosing Fibre Cement down with water and using a clean garden broom to remove all loose Cement Roof Tiles dust and dirt. Any Oils or Releasing Agents must be removed with Muriatic Acid or an Industrial Grade Degreaser, then washed with sugar soap. Hose all soaps and chemicals thoroughly down with water. Leave to dry before applying paint.

  • Apply one coat of Classiseal Pigmented Emulsion Primer;

  • Allow to dry;

  • Apply two coats of SUPER ROOF™ Paint allowing at least 4 hours drying time between coats;

  • Allow at least 4 hours drying time between coats;

  • Classiseal Primer can be replaced by using SUPER ROOF™ Paint diluted with 10% water as a Primer;

  • Allow to dry and overcoat with one coat of SUPER ROOF™ Paint undiluted.


It is recommended that existing roofs are washed with a high-pressure machine and an Anti-Fungicidal Wash. Any sign of fungal growth on fibre cement roofs must be removed by treating with Anti-Fungicidal Wash or household bleach before painting:

  • Wash down with water or detergent to remove all dirt, grease and paint other contaminants;

  • Galvanised roofs that show any sign of rust must be cleaned and spot primed with an appropriate primer;

  • Allow to dry;

  • Apply one coat of SUPER ROOF™ paint if surface is in sound condition;

  • Apply second coat of SUPER ROOF™ paint for change of colour, allowing at least 4 hours drying time between coats.

Roofs previously painted with gloss paint or alkyd type roof paint can be painted after cleaning and pre-treatment as above.


Use wire brush to remove all flaking paint and brush all surfaces to rough. Remove all grease, oil and fabricators sealing treatment with any recognised brands of galvanised iron pre-cleaner as directed. After cleaning wash down with water and allow drying. Apply two coats of SUPER ROOF™ paint allowing at least 4 hours drying time between coats.

  • Clean surface as directed above;

  • Apply one coat of Red Etch Primer or Calcium Plumbate Primer, depending on the severity of coastal condition;

  • Allow to dry;

  • Apply two coats of SUPER ROOF™ paint allowing at least 4 hours drying time between coats.


  • Do not apply direct to new galvanised iron, sand blasted steel or aluminium;

  • Application to areas where temperature exceeds 60° Celsius is not recommended;

  • Application to cold surfaces below 5° Celsius is not recommended;

  • Pre-wet new asbestos surfaces before painting;

  • For diluting use water only if required;

  • Do not use Mineral Turpentine, Lacquer Thinners or Meths for diluting as this will alter or destroy the quality and performance of SUPER ROOF™;

  • Clean all equipment and tools with water after use;

  • Do not apply to roofs which are used for the collection of drinking water use;

  • Clean all equipment and tools with water after use.


  • The ambient temperature must be between 5ºC and 33ºC and humidity between 10% and 80%;

  • Do not paint too early as the wall may still be damp - paint only when the walls are dry;

  • Do not paint in too hot weather, rather paint early morning and after lunch, the slower the paint dries, the longer it lasts;

  • Excessive application thickness and/or rapid drying could lead to cracking;

  • Avoid applying under adverse weather conditions as this could result in poor product performance;

  • Excessively friable surfaces should be cleaned down prior to primer application;

  • To assure smooth surface, paint corner to corner - from top to bottom - never halfway up and half way down;

  • Apply wet on wet, roll top to bottom overlapping half wet half dry.


Painting is a relatively user-friendly activity if the proper precautions are taken to ensure safety

  • It is advisable to wear gloves as Roofproof is difficult to remove from skin;

  • Always keep out of reach of children and animals;

  • Do not take in orally - harmful if swallowed. Seek medical attention and do not induce vomiting;

  • If accidental contact with skin, wash immediately with soap and water or a good quality skin cleaner;

  • If accidental contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice;

  • Wear a respirator if the area being painted cannot be adequately ventilated, and work for short periods only;

  • Ventilate the area to be painted, opening all doors and windows and using fans during application and drying;

  • Protect floors with cloth Drop Cloths, not plastic, which is far more slippery;

  • Do not paint or store paint near any heat source such as a water heater or fireplace, and never smoke while painting;

  • Make sure your ladder is in good shape. Set the legs on an even surface and lock the cross braces. Do not stand on the top of the ladder nor on the utility shelf. If you are having difficulty reaching a spot, get down from the ladder and move it rather than leaning out;

  • Clean up carefully and thoroughly when you are done for the day;

  • If rags have alkyd paint or thinner on them, leave them to dry outside to avoid any chance of spontaneous combustion;

  • Choose an area inaccessible to children and pets, and when they are thoroughly dry, take them to a toxic-waste dump site.
