AcryShield A502 Roof Coating...Often Imitated, Never Duplicated

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, Jun 12, 2014 @ 08:00 AM

roof coatingAcryShield A502 was introduced by National Coatings Corporation in 2006 after three years of intensive research, including both laboratory and actual in-service field testing.  The coating was designed to provide a primer/base coat to be applied to thermoplastic and thermoset single ply membranes, such as PVC, PIB, CPE, TPO and EPDM.  Previously, the only primers used for coating these membranes were solvent borne, which required warning labels, had very high VOC (volatile organic content) and required extreme care when applying to prevent fumes from entering the building.  The only other option for coating EPDM was a "prewash" or "rinseable primer" that had a very high, corrosive  pH, so high that it would react with human skin oils, causing chemical burns. 

AcryShield A502 has three inherent advantages over the previously used primers:

  • It is water borne, so there is no concern about flammable solvents or fumes entering buildings.
  • It replaces both specialty primers for the thermoplastic membranes and the corrosive rinseable primer for EPDM.  Thus there is no need for separate primer/basecoats for different types of roofing membranes.

The next time a project calls for coating single-ply roofing membranes, the roofing contractor, consultant or specifier should demand National Coatings Corporation AcryShield A502

What is the Best Coating to Use for an Aged TPO Roof?

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, May 27, 2014 @ 08:00 AM

TPO roofing has been known to be one of the hardest, most stubborn substrates to adhere to. Most roof coating manufacturers require an initial primer or etching rinse to be done before applying a base coat to the TPO membrane. Unfortunately, this adds additional labor time and costs to the roof coating project. National Coatings has made it a point to focus a majority of their efforts on providing durable, waterproofing solution to the roofing community that surpass their competition. With this goal in mind, National Coatings created the AcryShield A502 base coat, which DIRECTLY adheres to aged or failing TPO roofs without an additional primer or etching rinse.

TPO Roof

The AcryShield A502 offers the best solution in the roofing industry for restoring a TPO roof because of its ability to tenaciously and directly adhesion to the TPO membrane. The A502 base coat eliminates the need for a costly roof replacement, lowers project costs and increases job efficiencies. There is no need to capture caustic contaminated water from the primers and etching rinses, which a majority of municipalities require. This provides safer work conditions and is better for the environment.

National Coatings has a roof coating that allows for direct adhesion to hard to coat single-ply surfaces such as TPO, EPDM and Hypalon. The AcryShield A502 base coat is a high performance elastomeric, ultra low VOC, water-borne base coat. This roof coating is ideal for lowering project cost and promoting higher job efficiencies for your roofing company.

Contractors are able to save money and time using the AcryShield A502 base coat by eliminating the following steps:

  • No need for a separate primer prior to applying the base coat
  • No need to do a chemical wash off from the primer
  • No need to capture the harmful chemicals from the primer so they don’t run off into the streets or streams

We offer two different single-ply roofing systems that use the AcryShield A502 base coat. The AcryShield Roof Management (ARM) System is ideal for roof maintenance and the AcryPly All Acrylic Roofing System is ideal for restoring older roofs that have additional aging issues. These systems are excellent for your roofing company because they are easy to install, as they are spray applied. This allows you to cover seams, equipment joints, pipes, etc… creating a seamless, watertight membrane that is custom tailored to meet the specific needs of your clients’ roof. Additionally, these systems are available with a 10, 15 or 20-year warranty.
