NCC Provides Long-Lasting, Durable Roofing Solutions to Hawaii

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, Apr 15, 2021 @ 10:00 AM

Durable Long Lasting Roofing Solutions for Warm ClimatesNational Coatings' white roof coatings provide some of the highest UV protection and reflectivity the roofing industry has to offer. In warm climates, such as Hawaii these benefits are absolutely necessary for protecting your rooftop against premature aging.

Cool Roof Coating Solutions

Nothing damages your roof more than the sun. Intense heat and UV rays are the leading cause of blistering, splitting and decay of traditional roofs; and that means your roof can't keep out the rain. Our Cool Roof Systems help prevent sun-related damage while allowing your roof to last longer, reduce cooling costs and lower life-cycle costs.

The AcryShield® acrylic coatings and SRC® silicone roof coatings are formulated to shield your roof from the sun's damaging UV rays and heat. These cool roof coatings are packed with UV protecting ingredients to deliver outstanding long-term protection and superior durability to your rooftop.

Acrylic Roof Coating Benefits

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, Apr 13, 2021 @ 08:00 AM

Acrylic Roof Coating BenefitsIn need of custom solutions to repair your roof? Acrylic roof coatings, also known as elastomeric coatings, are excellent at renewing and restoring your existing / failing roof to new. These coatings offer benefits custom tailored to solving your roof's particular needs. 

Fast and Efficient Installation and Restoration Process

Acrylic roof coatings are spray applied directly on the new or existing roof to create a custom, monolithic, watertight membrane. The coating covers and seals all joints, seams, and penetrations around roof top equipment, solar panels, skylights and more. There is no need for additional patching or manually sealing areas because the completed coating system creates a SINGLE membrane over the ENTIRE roof surface. 

With less steps and more solutions than traditional roofing systems, acrylic coatings minimize overall job length as there is typically no need for a roof tear-off and/or disposal. These coatings typically don't need primers and don't use harmful chemicals for adhesion, and the AcryShield roof coating line comes in a full set of quick-setting  options for faster job completion during wet and moist weather.

*Pictures below show seamless waterproofing around all penetrations on the Ixora Building in Guam. AcryShield A179 was chosen for superior dirt pick-up resistance, and advanced protection against roof degradation and biological attack such as algae and mold. (Scroll down for more information pertaining to A179)

Watertight Roof Penetrations

High-Reflectivity = Excellent Energy Cost Savings

Acrylic coatings are also known as "Cool Roof Coatings" because the highly reflective components of the coating allow the roof to reflect a large portion of the sun's heat. This allows the inside air temperature of the building to remain much cooler and improve the comfort for the occupants. Clients are often surprised with how much cooler their buildings stay and the additional cost savings they gain from using less air conditioning to keep the building cool. "After the National Coatings' Cool Roof was installed we definitely noticed a difference in building temperature. It's not a marginal difference, either. It is between 15-20 degrees cooler inside the warehouse and store." - Jerry Moore, Facilities Director at Harbor Freight Tools

Lengthen Roof Life with Additional Protection and Durability:

Ultra-Violet (UV) blocking pigments in the AcryShield acrylic roof coatings protect the roof surface from degradation and premature aging - lengthening the overall roof life. These coatings act as a "sun-block" or shield protecting the roof from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The UV rays are the leading cause of roof degradation as they break down the materials in the roof causing it to lose its waterproofing integrity, becoming brittle and dried out which leads to cracks, splits, rips, tears and leaks.

Minimal Disruption to Tenants:

Businesses and tenants can remain open and productive during the roof restoration/renewal process due to the spray applied application and low odor of the products. Acrylic coatings do not require drilling, nailing or seam-welding - eliminating a majority of the noise and disruptions traditional roofing creates.

Acrylic Roof Coating Guide


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.
