    Specialty Coating Creates Weathered Metal Appearance

    Fabral has added the Weathered Metal Series to its line of Specialty Coatings. Fabral has added the Weathered Metal Series to its line of Specialty Coatings. Users have a choice of two stages of aged steel—moderately weathered Raw and more heavily weathered Robust. According to the manufacturer, each pattern is crafted and engineered to give any roofing or cladding project the authentic look of timelessness. The Weathered Metal Series is a fluoropolymer coating system that uses cool pigment technology applied over GALVALUME-coated steel sheets.

    SEBS Roof Coating System Designed for Use in Variety of Applications

    Mule-HideThe new SEBS Roof Coating System from Mule-Hide Products Co. combines high tensile strength, excellent elasticity, ultra-low moisture permeability and resistance to ponding water, making it an ideal choice for use in a wide variety of challenging roof repair and restoration applications, according to the manufacturer.
     
    The solvent-based coating system is designed primarily for use in repairing and restoring metal roofs, but also can be used on TPO, EPDM, asphalt, modified bitumen, Kynar, concrete, Hypalon and PIB roofing systems.
     
    The SEBS Roof Coating System includes the following products: SEBS Primer; SEBS Base Coat; SEBS Roof Coating (for use on metal, TPO and Hypalon roofing systems); SEBS+ Roof Coating (for use on metal, TPO, Hypalon, EPDM, asphalt, modified bitumen, Kynar, concrete and PIB roofing systems); SEBS Seam Sealer; and SEBS 1 – Multipurpose Sealant.

    The coatings’ solvent base and ultra-low moisture permeability enable them to outperform other coating types in ponding water applications, according to the manufacturer. They will not delaminate if the substrate becomes wet and, unlike water-based coatings, they will not re-emulsify during prolonged exposure to ponding water.

    The lack of permeability also helps prevent corrosion of metal substrates and makes the coatings highly resistant to algae and fungi. Antioxidants and light stabilizers ensure the coating system’s durability throughout the roofing system’s service life.

    Because the SEBS Roof Coating System is solvent-based, it cannot be shipped to areas that regulate the use of products containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
