Silicone Roof Coating
Silicone roof coatings are the most common chemical in the roof restoration industry, and with good reason. Metal, modified bitumen, single-ply, EPDM, TPO, built-up roofs, concrete roof decks, and spray polyurethane foam are just a few of the commercial roofing substrates that they can restore and maintain.
Water Ponding Resistance
The resistance to ponding water is perhaps the most important feature of a silicone roof coating. Because silicone coatings are a moisture-cure substance, they will not absorb any extra water after curing, they may withstand the destructive effects of ponding water without breaking down.
Protection Against UV
Silicone roof coatings can reflect up to 80% of damaging UV radiation from the sun. This implies facility managers and property owners can save thousands of dollars by lowering cooling expenses and reducing HVAC system workloads during the hot summer months.
A silicone coating, unlike other chemistries, will not deteriorate, chalk, or crack when exposed to direct sunshine for long periods of time. They deteriorate at a considerably slower rate than other elastomeric coatings, and they don’t become brittle or rigid. Minimizing the sun’s impact on the roof not only helps to maintain reduced energy costs, but it also helps to lower internal building temperatures and extend the life of the roof.
