Acrylic Elastomeric Coating in Fresno, San Diego & the Inland Empire, CA
Durable Cool Roofs
Acrylic elastomeric roof coatings refer to a liquid-applied monolithic (seamless), fully adhered, elastomeric membrane that is formed in situ on the roof. These coatings are applied 5 to 10 times thicker than house paint. Typically, the thickness of exterior house paint is 3 mils, .003 inches.
For elastomeric commercial roofing applications, these would be 15 to 30 mils. So we're talking about membrane-like materials. EPDM is often 45 miles; HypalonR and PVC are 60 miles. However, with these coatings the membrane comes out of a can. That's why the term formed in-situ on the roof is used. It's applied as a liquid. As it dries, it forms a tough membrane, like EPDM and like HypalonR. But, unlike those materials, it has no seams. No field or factory seaming is necessary. Moreover it is also fully adhered to. These coatings are not mechanically attached like other types of single-ply membranes.
Acrylic polymers for roof applications have been engineered that are specifically for commercial roof coatings. Coatings manufacturers have tried to use house paints on roofs but these were too brittle. Formulators also tried to use caulk and sealant technology to make elastomeric roof coatings, but they have not been totally successful - resulting in failures. Today the technical requirements for a successful commercial roof coating are fully understood.
When your roof on your commercial building ages, it may need to be restored or have a coating reapplied to ensure its continued functionality. Each roof is unique, which means it ages differently and experiences normal wear and tear differently.
