LIQUID COATING SYSTEMS
Fluid (Coatings) Applied Roofing Systems are a moisture-cured, liquid, single-step application, high-performance elastomeric coatings. They are designed to provide excellent adhesion to multiple substrates and coverings.
One of the most critical components of any structure is the roof. It functions as a shield from harsh external elements. Liquid-applied roofing systems are constructed from multiple components working together to preserve the integrity of your building by providing protection from wind, rain, snow, ice, and heat. Once installed and properly maintained, liquid-applied roofing systems provide a dependable solution with no more tear-offs. These are customized membranes that are built on-site and can be installed over various existing substrates.
A liquid-applied roofing system is comprised of multiple components that come together to form a fully adhered, seamless, and self-flashing membrane. Each integral part is carefully engineered to perform under adverse conditions and be fully compatible with the other components of the system. Components may include liquid applied coatings and mesh membranes, or any combination thereof. A true system preserves and protects the integrity of the building.
There are multiple liquid-applied roofing system solutions, each designed for specific applications and conditions. These solutions each feature a liquid-applied component that creates a seamless, chemically resistant barrier to external elements. They can be installed over most existing roof types, eliminating the need for tear-offs or installation of re-cover boards. Once installed, periodic maintenance coatings (along with a regular schedule of cleaning) will preserve the roof with no additional steps needed.
Roof systems are critical to the integrity of any structure. Once properly installed, a liquid-applied roof membrane can withstand extreme elements and stresses encountered with typical building movement. The chemical composition withstands the extreme heat of the suns UV rays, helping to extend the life of the roof.
Fluid Applied Features
- Single-step Application
- Low Odor & Low VOC
- Preserves and Protects Multiple Substrates
- Tougher Chemical Resistance
- Superior Reflectivity
On a sunny, summer day, a black roof can reach temperatures in excess of 170F! On the same day, the highly reflective white surface of a liquid-applied roofing system can be as low as 110F! As a result, much less solar radiation is transmitted through the roof and into the facility. With energy prices on the rise, why get saddled with an energy-wasting black roof when you can install an energy-efficient solution instead? The magnitude of cost savings from a white roof can be staggering. The U.S. Department of Energys Oak Ridge National Laboratory provides a convenient method for estimating the cost savings of a white roof. Depending on your location, an energy-saving coating could offset 30% or more of the original cost to install the product!
