Directions for Use: Kiln-Kote Black
DIRECTIONS TO USE:
Ready to apply directly from the container. No mixing or thinning required. It can be applied by
brush, roller or spray to interior walls, decking and ceiling. KILN-KOTE BLACK is an asphalt
based material which provides a tough, heat-holding film and long-lasting barrier against
moisture and heat in lumber dry kilns. Used to prevent the deterioration of dry kiln walls, ceilings
and decking; to help ensure proper moisture level; to help maintain heat control. It is designed to
be used over masonry, wood, and metal surfaces.
KILN-KOTE BLACK should not be applied to fans, fan blades, thermostats or other mechanical
operating parts. It is not recommended for use in brick or tile processing kilns.
APPLICATION GUIDELINES: KILN-KOTE BLACK has penetrating properties that aid in
creating an effective vapor barrier. For that reason, coverage rates vary depending on the
porosity of the surface it is applied to. The following rates are guidelines only.
NON-POROUS SURFACES (Aluminum or Other Metal): 1 to 1½ gallons per 100 square feet.
MODERATELY POROUS SURFACES (Concrete Block or Brick): 1½ to 2 gallons per 100 square
VERY POROUS SURFACES (Haydite or Cinder Block): 2 to 2½ gallons per 100 square feet.
If possible, leave kiln open and inoperative for 48 hours to allow product to fully cure. If kiln must
be used sooner, small superficial blemishes may develop on the sealed surface and dripping
may occur. However, KILN-KOTE BLACK’s unique self-healing properties will maintain the
integrity of the vapor barrier
