Commercial Roof Repair - Liquid Rubber Coatings
Target Your Metal Roof or Flat Roof to Cut Costs
As a supplier of specialty aftermarket coatings you can be assured only the best material solutions are offered for your residential or commercial roofing needs. Remarkable advancements in roof-coating technologies have provided the industry with the necessary tools to increase the life span of commercial roof and avoid costly replacements or expensive tear-offs. Aftermarket coatings are meant to economically extend the life of your existing roof. You will certainly save a tremendous amount on overhead expenses by keeping your present commercial roof in good repair.
Commercial Roof Restoration That's Very Budget Friendly
Almost all commercial buildings with metal roofs have trim deck, clip lock, or similar type profiles. Your roof is always exposed and vulnerable to various weather conditions, such as acid rain. All kinds of elements can cause your roof to expand and contract which eventually lead to considerable damage that will require the expert experience of a roofing company that is very qualified in commercial roof repair and restoration. For answers to specific questions not addressed on the website please have your roofer give us a call.Comparison of Commercial Roofing Materials
Commercial roofs vary from small business offices to very large industrial manufacturing plants. Most roofs are either flat (low slope) or pitched.Commercial Flat Roofs and Commercial Pitched Roofs
The most common material that is used for pitched roofs is metal or some kind of shingle installation. You will find that commercial flat roofs have some obstacles that pitched roofs don't have, such as large air conditioning units and building ventilation systems.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION & PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Applying one single coat of Liquid Rubber 5581 results in a 20 -mil or .5 mm dry film. Primer won't be needed, even when metal has extensive corrosion problems. When working with thermoplastic and rubber, or repairing delaminated seams, stop all embrittlement of PVC and Hypolon, resurface damaged flashings in place, and use single-ply EPDM to recoat.
One single coat will protect the foam from UV deterioration.
For any asphalt type roof modified bitumen, asphalt hot mop etc you will first need to coat the roof with the ProFlex Primer before applying the Liquid EPDM Rubber. ProFlex was formulated specifically for our customers who want to take advantage of all the benefits of EPDM rubber but have an tar/asphalt roof or a roof where another type of product such as an elastomeric, acrylic or urethane was previously used. ProFlex will provide the needed barrier and an acceptable substrate for the Liquid EPDM rubber to crosslink and bond to the roofing substrate.
EPDM rubber coatings can seep into fissures at joint areas between new and old concrete. Our product penetrates into surface pores except when concrete has a trowel finish or surface pores have been sealed first with a primer. Tiles, and also rain gutters (produced from adobe-type or concrete materials) can be effectively waterproofed with rubber.
Flashing and Repair
Form the roof-to-wall flashing with EPDM rubber coatings that has been reinforced with polyester fabric. Mechanical fasteners aren't needed. This method can also be used to repair bridge cracks and reinforce weak areas.
Industrial and Commercial Uses of EPDM Rubber Coatings
EPDM liquid rubber is the best product for recoat and roof leak repairs on steel roll-formed siding when it has corrosion at the bends. When the one-coating system of rubber is applied there is no need for any corrosion-inhibitive primer.
Fabricated Steel in Saltwater Environments
Support structures, tanks, and cranes at dock facilities often have higher corrosion rates because of being exposed to saltwater. Saltwater has no impact on EPDM liquid rubber coatings, and this makes it excellent for marine environments.
Steel Storage Tank
EPDM rubber coating effectively protects ground-level or elevated steel storage tanks. Cathodic protection and surface condensation, and temperature stresses between shady and sunny areas will not negatively impact the EPDM coating.
(9911 Ship Shape Product) Leaks on boats, ships and barges can be effectively repaired with EPDM rubber coatings. Our 9911 Ship Shape product was specifically developed for marine use. It features excellent water and salt resistance, extreme temperature tolerance, ultraviolet stability, along with good flexibility.
Concrete pipes are effectively protected against saltwater corrosion when EPDM rubber coating has been applied. An EPDM coating will be able to tolerate very high temperatures and strong sunlight exposure. It has higher solids (2.5 times more) compared to coatings of liquid neoprene.
Many industrial operations use various acids and these can cause corrosive environments. Hog and poultry operations often produce high amounts of manure which can also create similar corrosive conditions. Rapid deterioration of steel and many other construction materials can be prevented in these environments when EPDM coatings have been applied.
One Component Thermosets
All sizes and shapes of non-thermoplastic materials can be coated now with EPDM rubber to protect against chemical harm or corrosion. Flow, dip or spray coat methods can be used to coat these materials with EPDM rubber. Ovens can be used to cure the materials at approximately 250° to 300° F (120° to 150° C) temperatures. These products are single-component, easy to apply, uniquely formulated for very specific applications and have safe storage stability. Solid and viscosity content is easily controlled which makes it simple to apply thin or thick EPDM rubber coatings.
