Elastomeric technology, formulated with 100 percent acrylic polymer, is the cornerstone of a new suite of roof coatings from Firestone Building Products Company.

The company's Fluid Applied Metal Roofing Systems are designed to extend the life of commercial and industrial metal roofs through superior adhesion, water protection and durability.

The new systems are designed help reduce the temperature of a roof's surface by up to 100°F, the company says.

The product portfolio includes:

  • Metal top coats;
  • Metal primers;
  • Metal patching;
  • Skylight restoration; and
  • Seam tape and fabrics.

Features, Savings

These new systems can help reduce the temperature of a roof’s surface by up to 100°F and can minimize the peak cooling demands of a building by up to 15 percent, Firestone Building Products says.

The highest level of energy savings is achieved when using lighter colors such as white or tan, the company says, though the systems are available in gray and black as well.
