Coverage for Mule-Hide Bonding Adhesive is approximately 60 ft² (5.6 square m) per gallon (finished surface.)
This coverage rate is an average and may vary due to conditions on the job site. Porous surfaces and substrates
may require more bonding adhesive than the typical coverage rate.
If adhesive is store at temperatures less than 60° F, restore to room temperature (~70° F) before using.
Surface Preparation
1. The surface, on or against which adhesive is to be applied, shall be clean, smooth, dry, free of fins, sharp
edges, loose and foreign materials, oil and grease. Depressions greater than 1/4" (6 mm) should be
feathered; using epoxy, mortar or other approved patching material. All sharp projections shall be
removed by sweeping, blowing or vacuum cleaning.
1. After thorough stirring (minimum 5 minutes), apply Low VOC Bonding Adhesive to substrate and
membrane using a 9" (228 mm) wide, ½” (13mm) medium nap roller. Application shall be continuous and
uniform avoiding globs or puddles. An open time of 5 to 90 minutes, based on drying conditions is
recommended before assembly. Low VOC Bonding Adhesive must be allowed to dry until tacky but does
not string or stick to a dry finger touch. Any coated area, which has been exposed to rain, should be
allowed to dry and then recoated. Do not apply adhesive to seam areas or use with taped products.
2. Roll the membrane onto the adhesive coated substrate while avoiding wrinkles. Immediately brush down
the bonded portion of the sheet with a soft bristle push broom or a clean dry roller applicator to achieve
maximum contact. In some applications, swelling of the membrane may occur initially, but this will
disappear after several days’ exposure. Do not re-broom membrane in an attempt to remove swelling.
1. Review the applicable Material Safety Data Sheet for complete safety information prior to use.
2. Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive must be stored in original, unopened containers at temperatures between
60ºF (15ºC) and 90ºF (32ºC). Jobsite storage in excess of 90ºF (32ºC) may affect product shelf life.
Prolonged exposure to below freezing temperatures will cause the adhesive to thicken and solidify in the
can. Should the Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive be stored at temperatures lower than 25ºF (-4ºC), restore to
room temperature for a minimum of 24 hours prior to use. Adhesive will perform as intended once it is
returned to a liquid state. When temperatures are expected to be consistently below 40ºF (4ºC), a heated
enclosure or hot box is required for storage.

Precautions (continued)
3. Mule-Hide Bonding Adhesive is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE -It contains solvents that are dangerous fire
and explosion hazards when exposed to heat, flame or sparks. Do not smoke while applying. Do not use
in a confined or unventilated area. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along ground or may be
moved by ventilation and ignited by pilot lights, other flames, sparks, heaters, smoking, electrical motors,
static discharge, or other ignition sources at locations distant from material handling point and flashback.
All containers should be grounded when material is transferred from one container to another. A red
caution label is required when shipping. A fire extinguisher should be available. In case of fire, use water
spray, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. Do not use a solid stream of water because it can scatter
and spread the fire.
4. Avoid breathing vapors. Keep container closed when not in use. Use with adequate ventilation. If inhaled,
remove to fresh air. If not breathing, perform artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call
a physician immediately. During application, efforts must be made to prevent fumes from entering the
building via air ventilation ducts. Do not place open containers or mix adhesive near fresh air intake units.
When possible, shut down or seal off the closest units.
5. If swallowed, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Call a physician immediately.
6. Avoid contact with skin. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. In case of contact with skin, thoroughly
wash affected area with soap and water. Contact physician if irritation persists. Note: Permeation resistant
gloves (that meet ANSI/ISEA 105-2005) are recommended to be worn when using this product to protect
hands from irritating ingredients.
7. Avoid contact with eyes. Safety glasses or goggles are recommended. If splashed in eyes, immediately flush
eyes with plenty of clean water for at least 15 minutes. Contact a physician immediately.
8. Do not thin Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive. Thinning will affect performance. Excessively thick or gelled
material should be discarded.
9. These materials are sensitive to ambient moisture and heat will accelerate the effect of moisture. Opened
containers of Bonding Adhesive should be used within 48 hours. Adhesive will begin to thicken after this
point, making it difficult and eventually impossible, to control adhesive thickness. In hot weather, do leave
sealed containers on roof for prolonged periods of time. In cold weather, keep material at room
temperature until ready to use. Stir adhesive occasionally while using.
10. Adhesive must be allowed to dry thoroughly. If membrane is mated with the substrate prior to the
adhesive being dry, blistering will occur.
11. Coverage rates are an average and may vary due to jobsite conditions.
Job site storage in excess of 90°F (32°C) may affect product shelf life. Should the Mule-Hide Bonding Adhesive be
stored at temperatures lower than 60°F (15°C), restore to room temperature prior to use.
