Why are elastomeric coatings at 10-20 mils dry film thickness a good choice for stucco substrates?

True or false: Resistance to water ponding may be the single most important performance feature needing improvement for elastomeric acrylic roof coatings, according to a recent D+D article.

True or false: Aromatic polyureas formulated as thick-film elastomers retain a significant portion of their elastomeric properties when subject to atmospheric exposure for long periods.

An elastomeric coating is most noted for what property?

Why are elastomeric acrylics often selected for use on masonry walls?
