How to Apply Armor Guard Protective Coating for Construction Projects

Proper Preparation & Application Process for Armor Guard Protective Coating

Armor Guard Protective Coating, also known as Armor Guard Glass Guard, is a weather-resistant, non-flammable protective coating for multiple building surfaces. Armor-Guard manufactured from a VOC Free waterborne formula, that does not contain dangerous solvents or chemicals. In its liquid state, it is 100% water-soluble, making clean up quick and easy. But once dried, Armor Guard dries into a waterproof, solvent resistant, second-skin membrane that protects the building surface.

In this video, you will learn how to properly apply Armor Guard Protective Coating with either a sprayer or roller. Learn the proper steps to take to prepare for & to apply Armor Guard Protective Coating to construction surfaces.

Important Factors to Remember Before Applying Armor Guard


Don't Forget These Things

  • Do not stir or add water
  • Solvent-Resistant & 100% waterproof
  • While wet, you can clean easily with water
  • Once dry, not soluble (can not clean with water)

Drying Time

  • Dry Heat & Warm Weather = Fast Dry
  • Cold, Wet & Humid Weather = Slow Dry
  • Using forced air can reduce dry time up to 50%

Remember Your PPE

  • Eye Protection
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Gloves


  • Only apply when the temperature is at least 34 degrees F during spraying & drying time
  • During the winter, you can use a portable heater to achieve this

Proper Preparation & Application Processes for Armor Guard Protective Coating

Failure to Follow these Guidelines Will Lead to a Less than Desired End Product


Sprayer Application

  • Before starting, the area should be properly masked or shielded to prevent overspray
  • Prime the pump
  • Run a test spray, adjust pump pressure if needed
  • When beginning to spray, first spray the perimeter of the area being sprayed
  • Hold your wrist straight, firm & perpendicular to the surface being sprayed
  • While spraying, move your arm back and forth in an even path
  • Generally, thicker is better than thinner
  • Overlap the spray pattern 50% each pass
  • Pay particular attention areas with 90 degree angles, these areas need to be carefully coated for Armor Guard to peel off evenly
  • Additional coating can be applied wet on wet or wet to dry, if needed
  • An ideal wet spray thickness (10-12mils) will have a color that matches the cream color in the original bucket
  • To provide a solid, clean edge for peeling, remove masking immediately after application
  • Clean sprayer

Roller Application

  • Use a 3/8" - 1/2" nap roller
  • Armor Guard can be used straight out of the bucket, no need for paint trays
  • Roll on the first coat in 1ft. sections
  • Be sure to keep the edges thick for easy peeling, no need to feathering the edges
  • For an ideal thickness, you may need to apply up to 3 coats
  • Additional coatings can be applied wet to wet due to the high viscosity
