Multi-Purpose Joint Sealant Adheres to Damp Surfaces

Kemper System GreatSealKemper System America Inc. offers GreatSeal PE-150, a high-performance, single-component, multi-purpose joint sealant designed for long-lasting weathertight seals. According to the manufacturer, it is ideal for sealing joints in roofing, walls and masonry, as well as gaps around penetrations, flashings, windows and doors.

Based on a polyether sealant, GreatSeal PE-150 contains no solvents and very low VOCs. The multi-purpose indoor/outdoor sealant exhibits excellent weathering properties with a service range of 200oF to minus 40oF (93oC to minus 40oC), movement capability of +/- 25 percent, and zero shrinkage.

According to the company, the product adheres even on damp surfaces. It can be applied in cold weather, and in most cases, without a primer. It bonds aggressively to most building materials, including wood, vinyl, glass, fiberglass, foam insulation, asphalt, modified bitumen, EPDM, PVC, PIB rubber, and Kynar coatings, as well as painted, galvanized and anodized metals.

GreatSeal PE-150 is part of a family of construction sealants from Kemper System. The GreatSeal brand also includes GreatSeal LF-500 Liquid Flashing compatible with Roof Guardian elastomer-based roofing products, and GreatSeal LT-100 polyether Liquid Tape compatible with Wall Guardian FW-100A, a liquid-applied fibered acrylic air barrier. All three brands are in the STS Coatings line, acquired by Kemper System America in 2016.

Kemper System Features Cost-Effective ‘Cool Roof’ Solutions

Kemper System America Inc. now offers two cost-effective ‘cool roof’ solutions for prolonging the life of metal, BUR, modified bitumen and aged single-ply roof systems.

Roof Guardian RG-170 is an elastomer-based coating system ideal for extending the life of many types of roofing assemblies. Formulated using a 100 percent acrylic polymer base for enhanced adhesion and durability, the coating features a high Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) rating of 109 and is Class A fire rated. Roof Guardian RG-180 is a fiber-reinforced elastomeric coating with an acrylic polymer base, ideal for metal, concrete, single ply, modified bitumen, and granular cap sheets. It offers an SRI rating of 108.

“Kemper System has been at the vanguard of liquid-applied roof waterproofing solutions for decades. These two new white Roof Guardian coating systems offer a quick and cost-effective approach for transforming many kinds of existing low-slope roofs into a cool roof that can help building owners cut cooling costs,” says Jim Arnold, Director of Product Development for Kemper System.

Part of the company’s Roof Guardian Technologies line, the roof coatings can be quickly applied with a commercial-grade sprayer or roller. The highly reflective bright white finish lowers the surface temperature of the substrate to reduce thermal transfer into the structure. This high solar reflectance helps lower indoor temperatures to reduce building cooling requirements.

Formulated to resist cracking and peeling, both products provide excellent waterproofing and long-term mildew resistance. Both solutions are Energy Star and Cool Roof rated.

“For more than 60 years, Kemper System has been a global industry leader in cold liquid- applied, reinforced roofing and waterproofing, having invented the technology and holding the first patents,” says Arnold. “Today the company offers a full range of building envelope solutions to protect against weather, preserve the integrity of surfaces, and enhance the comfort and value of buildings.”

This portfolio encompasses Wall Guardian fibered acrylic air barrier, Roof Guardian Technologies elastomer-based roof coatings, and HeatBloc-ULTRA radiant heat barrier. Other high-value brands include COLEAN traffic coating systems, and the company flagship for exterior and interior waterproofing, Kemperol reinforced membrane systems.

Kemper System Names West Coast Regional Sales Manager

Kemper System America Inc. has named Lynn Walters as the company’s West Coast Regional Sales Manager. In the role, Walters will have responsibility for expanding sales and educating architects, consultants and contractors across the region about the company’s range of barrier solutions for the building envelope.

Based in the San Francisco area, he joins the company from STS Coatings Inc., acquired by Kemper System last year, and he brings more than two decades of sales and marketing experience to his new role.

Walters currently serves on the board of directors of the Reflective Insulation Manufacturers Association (RIMA), and as committee chair for the Strategic Alliance for the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA). He is also a member of the Cool Roof Rating Council, RCI Inc. and ASTM International.

At STS Coatings, Walters served nine years as National Sales Manager, and also as Product Manager representing HeatBloc-ULTA radiant heat barrier. Previously, he spent 12 years as West Coast Sales Manager for the OEM Building Products Division of BASF.

Liquid-Applied Coating Systems for Modified Bitumen and Metal Roofs

Roofing contractors can transform existing modified bitumen roofs or metal roofs into white reflective cool roofs with two new roof recovery options from Kemper System. Roof Guardian RG-170 (SRI 109) is a Class A fire-rated elastomer-based coating system for prolonging the life of modified bitumen assemblies. Roof Guardian RG-180 system (SRI 108) is ideal for recovering metal roof assemblies.

The Roof Guardian line of liquid-applied elastomer-based roof coatings also spans solutions for smooth-surfaced built-up roofing (BUR), polymer-modified asphalt (PMA), and single-ply roof systems.

Both RG-170 and RG-180 are formulated using an acrylic polymer base that provides outstanding adhesion and superior reflectivity. The bright white finish reduces surface temperatures, thereby minimizing thermal expansion and contraction. Under-the-roof temperatures are also reduced, lowering energy costs. Formulated to resist cracking and peeling, both products provide excellent waterproofing capabilities and long-term mildew resistance. RG-170 and RG-180 are Energy Star and Cool Roof rated and now have 3-year weathering test results. Elastomeric coatings from Kemper System

White Coating Improves Energy Efficiency

The Kemperol Reflect 2K FR from Kemper System is a cold, liquid-applied reinforced cool roofing system that can improve building energy efficiency.

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.
