Cool roof coatings are “The most effective least costly option to save energy in low slope roofing in residential, commercial and industrial buildings”. RCMA

G

Super Therm

Super Therm cool building coating will change the way you think of energy saving retrofits for the building enclosure.
G

Liquid Membrane

In a word…Simple. A one component liquid rubber coating that’s easy to apply and simplifies the roof coating process.
G

Silicone

Silicone is a permanent fix for a temporary problem. Extremely adhesive, weather and water resistant.
G

Rust Grip

Renewal for a rusty metal roof. Permanent rust and lead paint encapsulation. Can be used alone or with other coatings.

New flat roof system

Every job starts with the proper prep work. That means moisture detection. I have partnered with Pinnacle Inspections to provide IR imaging and moisture detection to ensure the best possible outcome. After making sure the roof is actually dry, we get it wet with pressure washing. Then we seal any minor cracks or seams with brush grade elastomeric caulk and polyester fabric. Especially around penetrations and flashing. Then our base coat, Super Base HS, is embedded with a multi mesh polyester fabric for added strength. Two poly fibers are available with different strength ratings.

The mid coat is then sprayed or rolled on. This is typically Super Therm. Super Therm gives the heat build resistance needed for our advanced system performance. See below for detailed performance characteristics. The top coat is normally done in Liquid Rubber Membrane. Seal Coat is also used, depending on weather patterns and roof conditions.

The total system is 30-40 mils or 1mm thick. The thickness may not seem like much, but strength of the combined system, with all the ceramics, makes it a very tough roof.

 

 

 

Super Therm

Cool roof and building coating

Super Therm cool roof and building coating is a water borne combination of high performance aliphatic urethanes, elastomeric acrylics, and resin additives which produces a tough yet flexible coating. Designed for performance and durability, Super Therm contains 4 unique ceramics which block up to 95% of solar heat entering a structure. Super Therm is a low permeability flexible membrane that can greatly reduce expansion and contraction of a roof. It also prevents corrosion and surface deterioration. Can be applied to metal, concrete, wood and masonry by spray, brush and roll. Apply no less than 17 mills wet. Typically used as a system with products listed below.

Specs:

  • Solids:69% by weight, 58% by volume
  • Repells 95% of all light waves, UV to Infrared
  • 30-60 minutes to tack free at 70F
  • Overcoat: 2 hours @ 70F and 40% RH
  • Full cure 21 days
  • Weight 11.88 lbs/gallon
  • Viscosity: 105-110 KU
  • Minimun surface temp when applying: 40F
  • Maximum surface temp to apply: 150F
  • 16 ASTM tests passed. See TDS for details.

In a 15 year retest of Super Therm performance characteristics, a sample was taken from a low slope metal roof in western Kansas. The test results show a 73% solar reflectance, especially good since the Energy Star initial Soloar Reflectance Index was 80%. Typical SRI depreciation after 6 months is 10% – 15%. Super Therms 7% depreciation after 15 years is excellent by any standard.

 

 

Liquid Membrane

Reflective roof coating

A water proof one part elastomeric hydrocarbon rubber compound loaded with ceramic pigment for strength. It can be applied over a pressure washed substrate of TPO, EPDM, PVC, wood, concrete and metal.

Silicone

Commercial roof retrofit coating

  • 100% SILICONE. The unique chemistry of GacoRoof offers peace of mind for a lifetime! It outperforms and outlasts acrylic, urethane, asphalt and Hypalon® coatings.

  • NO PRIMER REQUIRED. GacoRoof will adhere to most surfaces without a primer including built up roofs, cap sheet, metal, modified bitumen and sprayed polyurethane foam.

  • REMAINS PERMANENTLY FLEXIBLE. GacoRoof will stay flexible and maintain adhesion, even under permanent ponding water or snow pack. Other coatings become brittle and begin to degrade over time.

  • WITHSTANDS PERMANENT PONDING WATER. GacoRoof is an excellent choice for flat or sloped roofs. Extremely durable, GacoRoof will not soften, bubble or degrade under permanent ponding water.

  • NON-SACRIFICIAL. GacoRoof is unaffected by harsh UV rays and temperature extremes.

  • PREVENTS COSTLY TEAR OFFS. By recoating your weathered roof with GacoRoof, you not only extend the life of your roof, you avoid the need for a time-consuming and costly tear off.

  • 50-YEAR LIMITED MATERIAL WARRANTY. All GacoFlex Coatings Carry a 50 Year Limited Material Warranty.

 

 

 

Rust Grip

Rust Grip rejuvenates rusty metal and gives new life to metal, concrete or wood surfaces. It simplifies steel coating operations because it is “surface tolerant” and UV stable. It’s primer, intermediate and top coat in one. Our patented formula penetrates deep within the surface through micro cracks, rust or pits and expands as it dries to a smooth hard surface. It soaks through multiple layers of old paint while anchoring into the substrate and seals out air, moisture and contaminates while forming a tough, high tensile strength aluminumized surface with high impact resistance. Rust Grip is an easy to use single component moisture cure polyurethane coating. It also passed ASTM E 1795 test for a bio-hazard encapsulent able to encapsulate lead based paint, asbestos and other bio hazards occasionally found on old metal roofs.

Specs:

  • Class A fire rating
  • Solids: By weight62.2%, By volume 51.4%
  • Tensile Strength 6,780 psi after 3 weeks
  • FM, USDA, ABS, US Navy approved
  • Salt water test (ASTM 117B) 15,000 hrs perfect score
  • Resistant to mildew, chemicals, acid, alkali
  • VOC 380 g/l, 3.17 gal/lb
  • Maximum surface temperature at application: 150°F, 65°C
  • G85: Prohesion over rusted metal
  • Superior adhesion

 

Seal Coat

A single component coating combines high performance urethane and elastomeric acrylics in a water borne formulation. The coating is designed using high quality elastomeric resin system for long life and weathering, and ponding water resistance, with good dirt release. Can be used as a one coat system over most types of roofs or as a top coat over Super Therm. A value engineered solution for tight budgets.

Specs:

  • Solids: 51.7% by weight, 52.89% by volume
  • 30-60 minute tack free at 70F
  • Full cure in 21 days
  • Cures by heat and evaporation
  • Weight: 10.5 lbs/gallon
