Kemper System Will Showcase Liquid-Applied Protective Solutions at IRE

Kemper System America Inc. will showcase a range of cold liquid-applied protective solutions for the building envelope at the International Roofing Expo (IRE) in Las Vegas, March 1-3, and demonstrate product application at booth 217.

Kemper System protects surfaces across the globe. Solutions to be featured at IRE include:

  • Two fully reinforced membrane systems that can transform roof decks into reflective cool roofs, or provide monolithic protection for green roofs, blue roofs, and a range of other projects.
  • Two new coatings systems for protecting surfaces prone to heavy wear such as parking garages, balconies and walkways.

Waterproofing Membrane Systems

The two reinforced waterproofing membrane systems are cold liquid-applied and ideal for cool roof applications:

  • Kemperol AC Speed FR system is a Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA)
  • Kemperol Reflect 2K FR is a low-VOC system

Both are fire rated for Class A assemblies and exceed LEED solar reflective requirements with SRI ratings of 108 and 110, respectively.

Durable Wear Coatings

For protecting parking garages, pedestrian decks, and loading docks, the COLEAN Parking System can withstand deterioration caused by natural elements and vehicular traffic. In addition, the COLEAN Balcony System, which is designed to expand and contract with normal structural movements, protects balconies, terraces, walkways, patios, sun decks, and machine rooms from freeze/thaw damage and chemical exposure.

Kemper System America also offers a way to prolong the life of existing roofs with elastomer-based coating systems, one of four technologies added through the acquisition of STS Coatings Inc. in December.

“Our building envelope solutions go beyond roof waterproofing to make the building specifier’s job easier. These solutions create opportunities for contractors and value for building owners,” says Richard Doornink, president and managing director of Kemper System America Inc.

For over 60 years, Kemper System has led in cold-liquid applied, reinforced roofing and waterproofing, having invented the technology and holding the first patents. Today the company offers a range of building envelope solutions to protect against weather, preserve the integrity of surfaces, and enhance the comfort and value of public buildings and commercial real estate.

Sealant Adheres to Various Substrates

Titebond Roof Plus Sealant

Titebond Roof Plus Sealant

Varied substrates comprise roofing materials, and contractors need a roofing sealant sufficiently versatile to adhere to as many of them as possible. Now, they have one, with the introduction of Titebond Roof Plus Sealant.

Titebond developed its newest roof sealant for a wide variety of roofing applications, such as metal trim, solar roof systems, architectural metals, painted metals, aluminum and general roofing projects. It provides excellent adhesion to a range of substrates: shingle and tiled roofs, sheet roofing, metal roofs, wood forms, flashings, edge and ridge tiles and liquid applied roofs. In addition, contractors can apply the sealant in temperatures from 20 F to 100 F, advancing its status as a great all-around roof sealant.

Titebond develops its adhesives and sealants with the professional contractor in mind, so it’s no surprise that its newest sealant offers performance characteristics that will appeal to the pro – and, by extension, the skilled DIYer. Beyond the wide application temperature range, Roof Plus can speed up application, increasing contractor productivity. The ready-to-use formula requires no messy, time-consuming mixing; the contractor simply inserts the cartridge in the gun and tools for quicker application and neater joints. It easily fills properly prepared joints one-quarter to two-inches wide. In addition, its clear formulation blends with most substrates – although the contractor can paint it with any non-rigid paint within just two hours.

However quick the application time, when cured, Titebond Roof Plus Sealant is an extremely long-lasting, supple sealant. It provides a weather-tight seal with 560 percent elongation and 25 percent total joint movement. The contractor can leave the job site confident that the sealant will meet high performance standards.

The newest Titebond sealant also complies with ASTM C-920 Type S Grade NS Class 12.5 Use T, NT, M, A and O; Federal Specification TTS-00230C Type II Class B; and SCAQMD Rule #1168.

Titebond Roof Plus Sealant is available in 10.1-ounce cartridges through building materials suppliers and hardware stores. It joins a full line of Titebond caulks and sealants for siding, roofing, multi-purpose, interior and specialty applications.
