How well does it resist the UV degradation effects of the sun? In order for your roof to resist harsh and damaging UV rays, it must be durable. Acrylic roof coatings are tough, the acrylic used in roof coating is the same acrylic used in exterior sealants, Plexiglas®, industrial coatings, house paints, and more.
Can the coating remain flexible at low temperatures? If the roof is located in North Dakota, where temperatures are very cold during the fall and winter, the roof must be able to tolerate movement without cracking or cracking.
An acrylic roof deck offers excellent energy cost savings due to its ability to reflect the sun's heat away from the building. The cleaner and whiter the ceiling, the better it can reflect heat.
Coatings are created to adhere to particular roof substrates. It is important to choose a coating designed to adhere to your particular substrate, whether it is aged metal, BUR, cover sheet, EPDM, TPO, PVC, Hypalon, etc...
How well does the coating adhere after prolonged immersion in roof puddles? Many roofs have areas where standing water sits on the roof until it dries out. These areas can cause blistering, delamination, and other problems if the coating cannot withstand immersion in water.
