AcryShield Roof Coating Systems Make Waterproofing Your Commercial Roof Easy

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, May 26, 2016 @ 08:00 AM

Spray_pic.pngThere is no easier way to waterproof your commercial roof than spray applying a monolithic membrane on top of your existing, failing roof.

AcryShield roof coating systems are installed in a few simple steps: a layer of AcryShield base coat with polyester reinforcing fabric embedded into the base coat if necessary, and lastly a layer of AcryShield top coat. These systems are applied over a wide range of roofing membranes to give your existing roof superior waterproofing, industry leading UV protection, dirt pick-up resistance, tenacious adhesion and resistance to ponded water.

A few reasons the AcryShield coatings provide ease of application:

  • These systems are spray applied, removing any need for patching and sealing areas around HVAC equipment, pipes, skylights, etc… These systems are sprayed around those hard to reach and hard to seal areas to create a seamless system for excellent waterproofing.
  • No business closure during installation. Throughout installation, there are minimal noise disruptions because there is no drilling, nailing or seam welding during application. The roof coatings used in these systems contain low or even ZERO VOC’s, with no harmful or strong odors, allowing you to keep your business open.
  • The AcryShield A502 basecoat eliminates the need for traditional primers or etching rinses to be applied and captured before the base coat can be applied on top of EPDM, Hypalon or TPO. This allows contractors to eliminate installation stages and building owners to save money.
  • Installation time is fast with minimal steps and can even be quicker when using the AcryShield Quick-Set base and top coats. These Quick-Set products are formulated to set rapidly in order to resist early wash-off associated with heavy dew and light rain.

Summer is a Great Time to Install a Roof Coating System

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, Jun 17, 2014 @ 10:00 AM

roof coating systemOften times your roof gets neglected, as it is unseen. Unless you physically go up onto the roof, you won’t know if there is damage, cracks, splits or blocked drainage unless it begins leaking inside the building. If you wait until this happens, it’s often too late and you are left rushing to choose the fastest roofing option to solve the leaking water as quickly as possible. We want to encourage you to be proactive so you can save yourself the extra cost, time, and stress. Summer is a perfect time to find a roof coating system that fits your roofs particular needs. 

Elastomeric roof coating systems offer multiple advantages over traditional roofing options as they require less time for installation and application, reduced costs, lengthened roof life, and these roof coating systems are sustainable - allowing you to recoat your roof every 10-15 years to avoid a roof tear-off forever. Dry, warm weather is the most ideal weather condition for application of a roof coating system, making the summer an excellent time to restore your roof.

Traditional roofing requires a roof tear-off after two roofs have been installed on a building. This is a building code law that is enforced and must be abided by; however, installing a roof coating system allows you to avoid a roof tear-off (indefinitely, might I add) as these systems do not bare the weight of a traditional roof, allowing roof coating systems to be exempt from this code. When you restore your roof with one of our roofing systems you save yourself time - no business closures, no tear-off stages, and an easy application process. You also save yourself money - there are no landfill fees and shorter construction time because the roof coating system is spray applied directly over your existing roof membrane. Business is conducted as usual so you don't lose production or sales efforts. Another advantage to roof coating systems is they are seamless. When applied, these systems are sprayed onto your rooftop allowing the coating to spread and bond together; filling gaps, seams, joints and cracks, covering necessary areas around pipes, drains and equipment creating a durable, monolithic, custom installed, watertight roofing system particularly created for your individual roof.

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.
