Roofs Get Antibacterial Protection

A new anti-microbial roof coating can protect both the substrate and the occupants below it, the manufacturer says.

Clear-Shield Rx, new from Garland Roofing, is a water-based coating system designed to provide antimicrobial protection for health-care facilities, schools and other occupant-sensitive environments.

The clear, acrylic, non-toxic coating is formulated to provide at least one year of antimicrobial protection, according to Garland.

Clear-Shield Rx is recommended for use on schools and health-care facilities.

Microorganisms on a rooftop can cause foul odors; contaminate indoor air quality; and discolor, corrode, and shorten the service life of a roof, according to Garland.

Clear-Shield Rx can resist bacterial and fungal growth on the applied surface, slowing discoloration and deterioration and reducing the number of contaminants entering building air intakes, the manufacturer says.

Applications, Other Characteristics

The system can be applied to gravel-surfaced modified bitumen, smooth-surfaced modified bitumen, single-ply roofing, and most non-metal rooftops that are not subject to ponding conditions.

Once applied, the bonded antimicrobial film is non-leaching, non-volatile, odorless and colorless, and produces virtually no chemical vapors, the company adds.

Clear-Shield Rx is safe for use around people, animals, and plants and can be applied by roller or pump spray, the company says.

Company Disclaimer

The company does not claim—and says no claims should be inferred—that the coating is particularly intended to "neutralize or control microorganisms directly or indirectly infectious or pathogenic to humans or animals."

Garland Roof coatings

The coating system features protective properties designed to reduce the bacterial growth that can discolor and deteriorate rooftops made of organic materials.

“Its protective properties are designed specifically to reduce the types of bacterial growth most likely to discolor and deteriorate rooftops made of organic materials, thereby improving interior air quality in relation to those types of bacteria,” the company says in its product release.

The Garland Company Inc., headquartered in Cleveland, OH, manufactures high-performance roofing and building maintenance products for the commercial, industrial and institutional markets.
