Silicone Roof Coating Fixes Roof Leaks

Gaco Western's GacoElastomeric Silicone Roof Coating

Gaco Western’s GacoElastomeric Silicone Roof Coating

Gaco Western‘s GacoElastomeric Silicone Roof Coating offers customers a better choice for fixing roof leaks. Because acrylic elastomerics have issues with ponded water and UV degradation, they do not provide a lasting solution.

Not only does GacoElastomeric withstand ponded water, it remains flexible over time whereas acrylics become hard and brittle. It has higher solids than acrylics so more coating stays on the roof to provide better coverage and because of the unique chemistry it can be rained on after just two hours and won’t wash off the roof.

The Garland Co. Inc.’s new OptiMax polyurethane-modified asphalt-based roof membrane combines asphalt with polyurethane to create a durable and long-lasting modified membrane. OptiMax becomes increasingly resilient as it ages because, with time, polyurethane molecules are chemically linked with one another. The process was first used in Europe in the paving industry. The “active modification” process involves chemically reacting the polyurethane modifier to specific molecules within the asphalt. This modification provides enhanced long-term performance characteristics and weatherability.

Arkema Coating Resins, a business unit of Arkema, has added to its line of waterborne binders for use in formulating roof coatings. The new product is ENCOR Flex 192, a modified acrylic latex binder designed for coatings used in the restoration of low-slope, commercial thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing membranes. Properly formulated, ENCOR Flex 192 offers outstanding dirt pickup resistance and adhesion to TPO, and can eliminate the need for a solvent primer to help lower roof maintenance and restoration costs.

The AC Cool Roof Binder systems are based on Kynar Aquatec PVDF binders, developed by Arkema’s fluoropolymer group, and ENCOR Flex polymers from Arkema Coating Resins.

Currently three systems are available, allowing greater formulation flexibility across different applications:

  • AC III Binder System – This system uses a Kynar Aquatec FMA-12 PVDF based topcoat and ENCOR Flex 187 all acrylic or ENCOR Flex 192 modified acrylic basecoat to provide the highest possible level of performance and durability. It is designed primarily for the most demanding cool roof coating applications.
  • AC II Binder System – Utilizing a proprietary ENCOR Flex 187 all acrylic polymer or ENCOR Flex 192 modified acrylic latex, this base and topcoat system delivers excellent performance and meets ASTM D-6083, “Standard Specification for Liquid Applied Acrylic Coating Used in Roofing.”
  • AC I Binder System – This ENCOR Flex 3186 styrene acrylic system provides a good mix of performance and value for less demanding applications.

The Kemperol Reflect 2K FR from Kemper System is a cold, liquid-applied reinforced cool roofing system that can improve building energy efficiency. The white surface helps reflect sunlight and reduce the impact of infrared rays that can tax building cooling systems. The easy-to-apply, fully reinforced membrane is applied the same way as Kemper System’s Kemperol 2K-PUR solvent- and odor-free system, but the new liquid waterproofing pours out white and dries to a bright white. Because no topcoat is necessary, labor costs and installation times are reduced. The system consists of 70 percent rapidly renewable resources, is fire-rated for Class-A assemblies, and is odor-free and low-VOC.

Kemperol Reflect 2K FR extends Kemper System’s efforts to support sustainable design. It works for exposed roofs where reflectivity can make a major impact on building energy demands, and it offers many of the same advantages as the Kemperol 2K-PUR system, popular for ‘Green Roofs’ and ‘Blue Roofs’.

The product was tested in Europe and proven valuable on ‘cool roofs’ (also known as ‘white roofs’) especially in warmer climates and areas with above average sunshine.

Both Kemperol systems are also both eligible for LEED credits under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program.

Kemperol membrane systems fully adhere to substrates, and are self-flashing and self-terminating for easy installation and edge-to-edge protection. They can seal roof perimeters, multiple penetrations and virtually any architectural detail, with extended-warranty protection. They are fully reinforced with 165 polyester fleece which absorbs the resin and can achieve proper membrane thickness in a single layer.
