In order to ensure a good commercial roof coating, it is imperative that you examine the physical characteristics of the coatings to make sure they will work in your roofing climate. The following five properties (as well as others) may be found in product data sheets from manufacturers.
Elongation is the measure of how far a material can be stretched before it breaks. Elastomeric coatings have an elongation rate of between 250 percent and 900 percent. The higher the elongation value, the more durable a coating is suited to endure the typical expansion and contraction of a roof structure without cracking, thinning, or peeling off.
Tensile strength is the maximum amount of pressure a substance can withstand before breaking. The majority of elastomeric coatings have tensile strengths ranging from 250-1200 psi. Elongation and tensility are inverse functions; when one rises, the other decreases. To create a strong, long-lasting membrane that can stretch and move with roof surfaces, expert building firms balance the two features.
Permeability, or perm rating, is the degree to which a material or membrane lets liquids and gases pass through it. The amount of permeability varies significantly depending on the type of coating. Acrylics have a high perm rating, implying that they are highly breathable. Silicones have a lower perm rating, meaning that they are more moisture-resistant. It’s worth noting that increased permeability does not always indicate poorer weather resistance.
Reflectivity is how much light material can bounce back, and it’s usually presented as a percentage between 0 to 100%.
The degree to which a material allows heat to escape is called emissivity. This is most commonly measured as a decimal from 0 to 1, with 0.65 being the optimal amount 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 expenses.
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.
