The Garland Co. Inc. has introduced its CPR System, a highly reflective, low-odor, synthetic liquid rubber membrane designed to waterproof and restore existing metal roof and wall panel systems. The lightweight, multi-layer waterproofing system will add 1/5 pound per square foot to existing roof systems when completed. It can be applied to properly prepared stainless steel, galvanized metals, Galvalume-coated metals, copper, aluminum and Kynarcoated metal roof systems. It is available in a brush- or trowel-grade version and can provide an additional 10 to 15 years of service life.

PVDF Coil Coating Resists Acid Rain

Dura Coat Products Inc. has introduced a coastal coating system to resist corrosive environments

Dura Coat Products Inc. has introduced a coastal coating system to resist corrosive environments

To combat environmental conditions harmful to metal roofs, coil coatings manufacturer Dura Coat Products Inc. has introduced a coastal coating system to resist corrosive environments. The formulation features PVDF-based Durapon 70 as a top coat applied over Dura Coat’s DC425G 380 high-build primer. Conditions include salt air within 1,500 feet of the coast, and acidic rains such as those common in the heavy industrial areas of the nation.

Durapon 70 is one of Dura Coat’s new generation PVDF coatings designed to create an exceptionally tough surface that’s resistant to scratching, scuffing, transit abrasion and the elements, yet is flexible for the most demanding post-forming operations.

For added protection, Dura Coat now offers new Edge Seal, a clear, air dry sealer that is applied with a roller to help seal cut edges of metal panels and trim that occur during the installation process. Edge Seal can also be applied during routine roof maintenance.

Dura Coat Product’s Durapon 70 provides some of the finest metal protection available. With the addition of the new Edge Seal Coating, raw metal edges are also protected against corrosion.

Control Heat and Glare through Polycarbonate, Acrylic and Plastic Skylights

Liquisol Solar Control Paint

Liquisol Solar Control Paint

Liquisol Solar Control Paint is designed specifically for polycarbonate, acrylic and plastic skylight applications. It provides long-lasting solar control to materials and surfaces where window film cannot be used.

Liquisol’s paint line includes 4Ever, 4EverBlue, 4EverDark and 3Seasons. Each can be applied to glass, acrylic or plexiglass conservatories, skylights and sky domes to reduce heat and glare. Liquisol paints let in sunlight but reflect infrared heat while blocking more than 98 percent of harmful UV rays. This makes the indoor environment more comfortable, while lowering cooling costs and extending the life of furniture, fabrics and artwork by resisting discoloration.

Liquisol’s 3Seasons was designed for hot summer, extremely cold winter climates. This temporary paint can be easily removed and reapplied when needed, allowing excessive solar heat to be blocked most of the year while taking advantage of solar gain during winter.

Liquisol’s 4Ever, 4EverBlue and 4EverDark are permanent solar reflective paints. Each was designed to provide a choice of visible light transmissions and heat rejection. The newest of these, 4EverDark, provides extreme heat and glare protection while 4Ever lets in the most light and is optimal for applications where customers want heat and glare control combined with a maximum amount of light.

4EverBlue puts off a blue hue designed to mimic the sky, giving occupants the feeling of beautiful weather outdoors while providing an efficient solar control solution. 4EverBlue has a 57 percent Total Solar Energy Rejection.
