 AcryShield A179 and A590 Ultra High Reflectance

AcryShieldPailnolowtempflexHighly reflective top coatings provide excellent UV protection to your rooftop. This additional protection adds years to your roof and reduces roof maintenance costs. These highly reflective coatings also deliver a cooler and more comfortable environment inside the building with less air conditioning usage, ultimately lowering your energy utility costs. 

National Coatings has two ULTRA high reflectant roof coatings that not only deliver the excellent benefits above, but offer some of the best reflectivity in the roofing industry:

  1. The AcryShield A179 is an acrylic top coat designed to reduce roof degradation and prolong the life of the roof, thereby significantly lowering life-cycle costs. A179 is used in the AcryShield Roof Management System and has been formulated to adhere to Metal and Concrete roofing systems to enhance the roofs solar reflectance. 

    A179 is a superior coating for substrates that have minimal movement or in geographies where low temperature flexibility is not required. With excellent abrasion resistance, it has the ability to be applied at lower film thickness and over several different materials including: tile, cement, cementitious substrates, clay, and pavers.

  2. The AcryShield A590 is an acrylic coating with ultra high-reflectance and superior UV protection for use in AcryShield or AcryPly Roofing Systems. This coating has been designed to adhere to SPF as a base and top coat. When used with any of our outstanding base coats, A590 can perform over a wide variety of existing aged roofing systems including: BUR, Mod Bit, Asphalt, Hypalon®, EPDM, TPO, PVC, Metal and Concrete.

    The ultra high reflectance of A590 is engineered to lower air conditioning energy costs. A590 reduces roof degradation and prolongs the life of the roof it is applied to, significantly lowering the life-cycle costs of the roof.

    AcryShield A590 exceeds all ASTM D6083 requirements and also offers excellent tensile strength, elongation and wet adhesion.
