San Antonio Cool Roof

San Antonio Cool RoofIn the world of engineering and commercial buildings, a roofing scheme that can distribute high solar reflectance and high thermal emittance is a cool roof. Most cool roofs are white and other light colors.

Cool roofs improve roof durability and reduce both building cooling loads & the city heat island effect.

Cool roofs are successful alternative to mass loft insulation under roofs in damp tropical and subtropical climates. Mass insulation can be entirely replaced by roofing systems that together replicate solar radiation and provide release to the sky.

San Antonio Cool roof can be used as a geo-engineering technique to deal with global warming based on the theory of solar radiation management, provided that the materials used not only reflect solar energy, but also produce infra-red radiation to cool the planet.

Austin Roof Coatings

Roof Coating is a monolithic, fully adhered, fluid applied roof covering. It has elastic properties that permits it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage.

Typical Austin roof coating dry film thickness differ from paint film thickness to more than 40 dry mils. This means a roof coating really becomes the top layer of a composite roof covering and underlying system. As such, the Austin roof coating is the topmost layer of protection for the covering, receiving the impact of sunlight, rain, hail and physical damage.

Austin roof coating can be applied by brush, roller or spray. An close sprayer is recommended for best results.

Anti Graffiti Coatings

Anti Graffiti Coatings are known for its durability and application ease. It doesn't allow paint, permanent markers, stickers, graffiti or any other markings to bond to the dry film. By re-spraying the surface you can repair the damage coating. Anti-Graffiti Coatings are generally non-stick coating and are UV stable. This coating is water-clear and has great chemical resistance. The frequently used paints are latex and acrylic paint and oil-based paint.

Anti graffiti coatingsAnti graffiti coatings are perfect for preserving historic buildings as they are invisible to the naked eye. This coating has an excellent cleaning efficiency. Chemical composition of this coating is environmentally-friendly. They are of two types: sacrificial coating and permanent coating. A sacrificial coating helps in protecting the wall or surface. It creates a clear coat barrier over them. Use a high-pressure washer for removing the coating if the surface is damaged. The surface should be clean and dry before applying the new sacrificial coating The surface and air temperatures must be 40-90°F (4-32°C). You should not apply sacrificial coating during rain showers. Polymers like biopolymers, acrylates and waxes are used for making sacrificial coating. These polymers produce weak bonds so that it is easily removed.

Permanent coatings are effective and flexible. They are expensive when compared to sacrificial coatings. They are waterproof and will stretch and shrink with the substrate. It will bond to surfaces like wood, concrete, vinyl cladding, metal, stucco and both asphalt if applied and used appropriately. It is UV resistant and allows moisture to flee from the substrate. Fluorinated hydrocarbons, Polyurethanes, siloxanes, and nano-particles are kinds of permanent coating. Fluorinated hydrocarbons coatings are very durable and chemically inert. Polyurethane coatings resist corrosion and chemical exposure. They are useful because of their barrier properties. Silicon coatings are hydrophobic (water-repels) on surface. It helps in reducing the effects of photo-oxidation of surfaces.
