EPDM Coatings Announces Caribbean Territorial Sales Agent for Liquid Rubber

EPDM Coatings, distributor of liquid EPDM rubber for North and South America, is pleased to announce that it has approved Innovative Building Systems in Nassau Bahamas (IBS) as the territorial sales agent for the Caribbean. Over the past year through their initial marketing efforts; it was apparent that IBS is able to increase product sales and promote the product in the surrounding countries. Greg Kazmierczak, vice president of commercial sales for EPDM Coatings identified an opportunity. During the past years Mr. Kazmierczak stated his sales staff needed to turn down business due to the logistics of sending product through Miami and having customers in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and other countries wait several weeks for product to arrive. They have been looking for a strategic partner and now with the ability of IBS to stock inventory the delivery times are significantly decreased.

IBS President Guilden Gilbert states that he is committed to increasing the sales effort and invest in promotion and advertising throughout the region. In the initial projects where the Liquid EPDM was applied Mr. Gilbert stated there was an opportunity in this area of the world where other coatings would not withstand the saltwater environments. He further added there are benefits of the Liquid EPDM over standard elastomerics or acrylics and silicones. The Liquid EPDM surpassed our expectations as well as the expectations of our customers. There is nothing like it on the market and we have hopes that it will be the standard for many of the roofs throughout the Caribbean. We have made a financial commitment and have gone through the manufacturer’s certification program.

Liquid Rubber is the only Liquid EPDM Rubber in the world. Now with over a 25 year history of success it has become the choice of thousands of customers worldwide. This one coat application extends your existing roof another 18-20 years. Its success is in the chemical cross-linking that occurs allowing the Liquid EPDM to chemically fuse itself to the roofing substrate.

Resuscitate Metal Roofs and Walls with a Reflective Restoration Coating

“Roofers’ Choice” was determined by the product that received the most reader inquiries from the July/August 2014 issue’s “Materials & Gadgets” section.

The Garland Co. Inc. recently 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, delaying costly roof replacement and improving the overall performance of the roof system.

The Garland Co. Inc. recently 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, delaying costly roof replacement and improving the overall performance of the roof system.

This lightweight, multi-layer waterproofing system will only add one-fifth of a pound per square foot to existing roof systems when completed, eliminating the time and cost associated with engineering a new roof system. The CPR System provides resistance to UV damage and deterioration caused by weathering by forming a rubber-like monolithic membrane over the entire surface. It is designed for application to properly prepared stainless steel, galvanized metals, Galvalume-coated metals, copper, aluminum and Kynar-coated metal roof systems.

According to Tom Stuewe, a Garland product manager: “The CPR System is the answer for building owners or facility managers who don’t have the budget for a replacement but need to extend the life of their roof system. The ease of application makes it ideal for in-house maintenance use, and its cold-process, low-odor formulation allows restoration projects to proceed with minimal disruptions to building operations and occupants.”

The CPR System is available in brush-or-trowel-grade versions and can be easily applied over sloped, contoured surfaces. When properly installed and maintained, this system can provide an additional 10 to 15 years of service life.
