POLY ROOFCOAT

is a semifluid acrylic with polymer resins. Once  applied in a thick coat, it provides  a flexible waterproof membrane for pitched roofs and facades allowing the product to follow  the expansion and tension cycles of the substrates.

ROOFCOAT shows an exceptional resistance to extreme weather conditions and UV rays . It does not pollute freshwater. It is non toxic and protects the environment.

SCOPE OF USE

ROOFCOAT is used on pitched roofs and vertical walls wherever waterproofing and flexibility is required on substrates such as:

  • Concreteroofs.
  • Zinc, asbestos cement and plastic roofing.
  • Corrugated and galvanized iron.
  • Bituminous coatings.
