Roof coatings come in a variety of colors, patterns, and finishes. We do our homework, investigate different coating manufacturers, and work with several to ensure you get the finest option for your facility. Our goal is to sell you on a roof that is ideal for you rather than pushing the most popular product. We have Uniflex, Gaco, Karnak, GAF, Henry, Armour Proof Coatings, Mule-Hide Products, and Inland Coatings among our brands.
To ensure your roof coating is effective, you should analyze the physical components of different coatings to see if they will be appropriate for your climate. The following five properties are usually included in product data sheets from manufacturers.
Elongation is the ability of a material to be stretched before it breaks. Elastomeric coatings have an elongation rate of 250 percent to 900 percent. The greater the elongation value, the more durable a finish is suited to endure the regular expansion and contraction of a roof structure without cracking, thinning, or peeling off.
The maximum amount of pressure a material can endure before breaking is its tensile strength. The majority of elastomeric coatings have tensile strengths ranging from 250 to 1200 psi. Elongation and tensility are inversely related; as one rises, the other decreases. Expert construction companies balance the two characteristics in order to create a durable, long-lasting membrane that can stretch and move with roof surfaces.
Permeability, sometimes known as perm rating, is the capacity of a material or membrane to allow liquids and gases to pass through it. The degree of permeability varies significantly according to the type of coating. Acrylics have a high perm rating, indicating that they are highly breathable. Silicone has a lower perm rate, implying that it is more moisture-resistant. It’s worth noting that greater permeability does not always imply poorer weather resistance.
The reflectivity of a material is how much light it can bounce back, expressed as a percentage from 0% to 100%.
Emissivity is the degree to which a material allows heat to escape. This is most often measured as a decimal ranging from 0 to 1, with 0.65 being the ideal level for an elastomeric roof coating. This implies that 65% of the sun’s thermal energy is radiated away from the roof, lowering heating and cooling costs.
Solids by volume are the amount of solid material that will remain after a substance has dried. Understanding this property is essential for coating systems to achieve the required dry film thickness as specified. This property, while unimportant in terms of performance, may be worth considering if appearance is important to you.
