I would agree that the Henrys spray can of primer does not work well.
I would agree that it is better to not use primer if you are using the spray can primer. It’s what everyone seems to use around here. I liked it for a while myself. extremely conveniant.
No one liked the regular brush primer in the 1gallon/5gallon cans because we all seem to spill it everywhere before we use the can all up.
But now i am back into it. I really like the henry asphalt primer in the one gallon can. I think it does work well.
I disagree that primer is not needed on the evedrip.
I disagree that the liquid substance at the top of the cement can is acceptable.
Now for Self-adheared modified bitumen? totally different ballgame.
Torch-down does eventually pull away from your evemetal (primer or not) if it is a “endlap”.(after your workmanship warranty is over)
During the last half of its life.
Gweedo, are you saying that you have not seen torchdown shrink yet?
The results of the shrink is 1/2 an inch to 3/4 inch on each end. resulting in ripping away from your perfect endlap bleed-out that lasted for 6-7 years.
I now let my torchdown “endlaps” hang over the eve-metal by 1/2 an inch. So that way in the future when it shrinks, it shrinks even to the outer edge of the metal.
You wont be reading this on the Certainteed, GAF/ELK websites!
You wont read it anywhere else, because no one else has written it and i just now wrote it.
