- Superior adhesion to various substrates.
- Contains fungicides and mildewcides.
- Excellent UV protection for polyurethane foam.
- Heat reflective coating helps reduce cooling costs.
- Reflects the sun’s UV-rays and prevents premature degradation.
- Prevents premature roof failure by controlling thermal cycling.
- Easy to use, non-toxic and VOC compliant water based coating.
- All surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry and free of any oil, grease or dirt.
- Any existing coating must be checked for good adhesion.
- Before application, any loosely adhered coating must be removed and bare surfaces must be prepared, cleaned and checked for compatibility.
- Energy Guard & trade; Elastomeric Roof Coating is ready to use. Thinning is not recommended.
- Containers should not be left open for extended periods of time.
- Follow our roof restoration procedures and always perform a coating adhesion test before doing the entire roof.

AVAILABILITY AND COST
EnergyGuard™ Elastomeric Roof Coating is available directly from EPDM Coatings like liquid rubber and liquid epdm. Pricing information can be obtained from an EPDM Coatings Representatives.
On pre-approved, qualified applications, using approved applicators, a 10 year warranty is available. Contact us for complete warranty information.
Periodic maintenance of Energy Guard Roof Restoration System ensures extended service life and maintains reflectivity.
Caution: EnergyGuard™ Elastomeric Roof Coatings is a water-based product which will freeze and become unusable at temperatures below 32°F. Suspend all application if conditions prevent a complete cure before sunset, rain, fog, dew or freezing temperatures. Product must be completely dry before exposing to water or foot traffic. Keep Lexis containers covered when not in use. Dispose of all containers in accordance with state and local environmental regulations. Keep away from children. If ingested, DO NOT induce vomiting. Call Physician immediately.
An elastomeric coatings are roofing applied in a viscous state. It has elastic properties, and can stretch in the summer time heat and then return to their original shape without damage.
Elastomeric coatings usually contain polymeric materials, such as acrylic, and a white pigment, such as titanium dioxide, to make them opaque and reflective. An elastomeric coating is applied thicker than paint.
An elastomeric coating can be used on virtually any substrate including asphalt built-up roofing, concrete roofing, metal roofing, modified bitumen roofing, polyurethane foam roofing and single ply roofing.
Common Types: acrylic elastomeric coating, butyl elastomeric coating, silicone elastomeric coating and urethane elastomeric coating.
Roof Restoration Process
Pressure wash the entire roof surface to remove all dirt, dust, previous paints and coatings that are delaminating and achieve a clean and sound substrate. Some roofs may require special detergents. Call us for recommendations.
Prime the roof to ensure good adhesion of all coatings. We have primers suitable for almost all roof types. Even totally rusted roofs.
All seams, penetrations, non-structural gaps and parapet walls should be flashed. All fasteners should be sealed or capped with elastomeric caulk.
Inspect the roof for defects or flaws. Apply the elastomeric coating to the entire roof surface to produce a seamless, watertight membrane.
- Save up to 50% compared to re-roofing with little or no disruption.
- Reflects up to 90% of the heat. Saves money on cooling.
- Solves roof leaks economically and effectively.
- Includes a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty when professionally installed.
Elastomeric coatings are best applied by high pressure airless sprayers. We recommend a model that has a pressure rating of 3000 psi and a flow rate of 3 gallons per minute.
