Reduce Roof Maintenance with an Acrylic Roof Coating System

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, May 24, 2016 @ 11:17 AM


AcryShield roof coating systems are comprised of elastomeric, acrylic roof coatings that are rich in UV blocking ingredients. These systems restore the current condition of your roof to new, without the cost of a roof removal.

The high levels of UV blocking pigments protect the roof from the leading cause of roof degradation – the sun. The UV rays from the sun cause the roof to prematurely dry out, leading to embrittlement, thinning out of the membrane, cracks, splits and other failures that cause leaks. Acrylic coating system that have high reflectivity capabilities are able to redirect these damaging rays away from the roof top, prohibiting normal absorption from occurring and allowing the membrane to remain flexible, providing strength, elasticity and durability.

AcryShield acrylic roof coatings are also designed to protect your roof against foot traffic and other harsh conditions that breakdown the protection your roof requires. Your roof needs to be accessed at times to unclog drains, work on rooftop equipment and more, it is important to choose a coating that can withstand damaged caused by normal foot traffic. Our AcryShield A550 coating provides additional strength and durability to the rooftop in order to offer excellent protection against foot traffic and physical abuse. A coating such as the A550 would be ideal to use directly around roof hatches and equipment that will be accessed regularly to ensure proper protection and durability.

For information on roof coating reflectivity capabilities, visit the Cool Roof Rating Councils (CRRC) website to determine the reflectivity capabilities the acrylic roof coating has based on initial and aged solar reflectance and thermal emittance values. The greater the number is for each of the values, the better! (Check out NCC’s roof coatings and systems that are listed with the CRRC.)
