CA Lottery Case Study using AcryShield Quick Set Roof Coatings

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, Aug 13, 2015 @ 11:00 AM

Case Study using AcryShield Quick Set Roof Coatings

California Lottery Commission 


Size: 177,500 Square Feet
Location: Sacramento, California

Challenge - Severely Deteriorating, Leaking Roof
  • 10 year old failing PVC membrane.
  • Numerous cracks and badly crazed.
  • Over 250 documented leaks.
  • Provide a sustainable roofing system with excellent adhesion and resistance to plasticizer, (a key component in PVC roofing membranes that prevents cracking) migration.
Solution - AcryPly® Restoration System  
  • Seamless, energy efficient roofing system featuring a fully adhered, leak free 120 mil membrane.
  • Evening installation with heavy dew that CA_Lottery_After_2deposited on the roof during the evening was completed using AcryShield Quick Set roof coating.
  • Costly recover or tear-off was not required; repairs and coating were completed at only a fraction of the cost of a recover roof.
  • Substantial energy savings. 

With their new National Coatings AcryPly Cool Roof System, California Lottery Commission has restored a severely leaking PVC roof, avoided spending a substantial amount of money on a tear off and gained energy efficiency by reducing air conditioning costs and the production of greenhouse gases.

"The collaboration for the project with National Coatings was very helpful along the way. The change to the Quick Set product was accomplished on the fly an was a seamless effort due to the intimate association during the life cycle of the project. (Would not have been successful otherwise as the timing was at the very end of the season)."
- Anthony J. Berzinas, Facilities Project Manager at California Lottery Commission

Can Roof Coating Systems be Installed During Wintertime?

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, Dec 16, 2014 @ 12:00 PM


There are a few important weather conditions to consider before applying a roof coating system to your building in the winter and shoulder seasons. These requirements include:

  • Always check weather conditions before application and never apply if rain is anticipated within 24 to 48 hours.
  • Air temperatures should be at a minimum of 55˚F with temperatures expected to rise for the following 24 hours. This includes temperatures during nighttime.
  • Apply the roof coating system in the early morning, finishing early into the afternoon to allow for a minimum of four hours of sunlight for the coating or sealants to cure.

Need Help? Contact a Roofing  Professional  Zero ObligationAreas such as California, Hawaii, Texas, Arizona and Florida often have warm winter temperatures averaging between 60˚F to 90˚F in January. As long as these temperatures do not drop below 55˚F during the evening and rain is not expected, these weather conditions are acceptable for installing a roof coating system during the winter.  

While weather conditions and temperature need to be ideal before application begins, it is also important to keep in mind:

  • Base and top coats need 8 to 24 hours to dry completely (this is dependent on weather conditions). No roof coating systems shall be applied if weather will not permit it to dry prior to exposure to precipitation or freezing.
  • Dew and fog can interfere with and damage coatings from properly curing.
  • Coatings must be stored between 40˚F – 90˚F. Do not leave coatings or sealants on the rooftop if temperatures are expected to drop below 45˚F.

National Coatings has a full line of Quick Set roof coatings that are uniquely formulated to allow you to work in the "shoulder" season.  The AcryShield Quick Set base and topcoats sets up rapidly and provide assurance to building owners and contractors that no early wash-off associated with heavy dew and light rain will occur. These coatings can be applied on virtually any roofing substrate including: Asphalt, BUR, Mod Bit, Concrete, Single-Plies, Hypalon, EPDM, TPO, PVC, and Metal.
