It’s critical to research the physical qualities of a roof coating before applying it to make sure it will perform in your climate. Manufacturers may provide product data sheets that include the following five characteristics (as well as others).
Elongation is the ability of a material to be stretched before it breaks. Elastomeric coatings have an elongation rate of 250% to 900%. The greater the elongation value, the more durable a coating is suited to endure typical roof building expansion and contraction 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 allows liquids and gases to flow through it. Permeability varies considerably depending on the type of coating used. Acrylics have a high permeability rating, implying that they are highly breathable. Silicones have a lower permeability rate, indicating 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.
