Acrylic roof coatings are the longest-standing chemistry in the roof coating industry. They are designed to form a tough, waterproof, white, seamless, elastomeric membrane over the substrate. Acrylic coating has a strong tensile strength, which offers superior UV stability. The high reflectance of acrylic coating helps to cool buildings by reflecting heat back into the atmosphere.
Silicone roof coatings offer a watertight, seamless, reflective membrane over the substrate. This type of coating is ideal for roofs with significant puddle water issues. Uniquely, silicone roof coatings can be applied when it is cold outside and when rain is in the forecast. Silicones are completely inorganic and cannot be broken down by UV light.
Urethane roof coatings are extremely tough and durable, forming a watertight, seamless, reflective membrane over the substrate. Urethane coatings are designed to be used in areas with the most stress because of their high tensile strength and elongation.
