Daily Quiz (23)

True or false: Elastomeric coatings are easier to remove by blast cleaning than brittle coatings.

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?

What is the name of the association for high performance elastomeric technologies?

Which of the following is a common use for elastomeric acrylic coatings?

What is another name for wet storage stain?

True or false: Silicone elastomerics are sometimes used as reflective roof coatings.

True or false: Thin-film coating systems (up to 10 mils) perform better than thick-film elastomerics (20 mils or greater) when applied over stucco.

According to ASTM D 6083, what should be the minimum dry film thickness for elastomeric acrylic, cool roof coatings?

What is the trade association for the thick-film high performance elastomer industry?

True or false: Because of the positive slope and limited potential for ponding water, elastomeric acrylics are a reasonable choice for restoration of metal roof coatings.

True or false: Both polyurea and polyurethane elastomeric coatings exhibit strong weathering and water resistance when applied to metal roofs.

What is the association focused on the global thick film high performance elastomer industry?

Why would a test for moisture content of concrete be important prior to application of thick-film elastomeric coatings?

True or false: White elastomeric acrylics are not used as reflective coatings for maintenance of metal roofing.

According to ASTM D 6083, what should be the minimum dry film thickness for elastomeric acrylic cool roof coatings?

True or false: Elastomeric coatings are generally able to bridge minor cracks in concrete.

Which of the following resin systems can be used to create an elastomeric coating?

True or false: Elastomeric coatings on masonry substrates can often bridge cracks and accommodate some crack movement.
