AcryShield A179 - Suited to Reduce Roof Degradation in Warm Climates

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, Apr 08, 2021 @ 12:36 PM

A179 HIThe AcryShield A179 acrylic top coat is designed to reduce roof degradation and prolong the life of the roof, thereby significantly lowering life-cycle costs. This coating provides high reflectivity, durability, superior dirt pick-up resistance, and advanced protection against biological attack such as algae and mold.

AcryShield A179 is uniquely suited for applications in warmer climates where low temperature flexibility is not required or the substrate does not demonstrate significant thermally induced expansion and contraction, such as on concrete tile. In warmer climates similar to parts of California, Hawaii, Guam, Saipan and the South Pacific, it is especially important to have a highly reflective roof coating, like the A179, in order to minimize heat transmitting into the roofing substrate and occupied building space. Keeping the roof substrate as cool as possible, lengthens the lifespan of the roof and cuts down the energy usage required to cool the building.   

A179 has excellent abrasion resistance and can be applied at lower film thickness and over several different materials.
