Silicone Coatings Made for Aging Roofs


Mule-Hide Products Co. Inc. has introduced a new silicone-based roof coating system designed to restore and repair aging roofing systems.

The Silicone Roof Coating System is formulated to extend the life of the roof, delivering watertight, energy-efficient performance while significantly delaying the day when costly tear-offs are needed, according to the company.

The fully adhered system further protects the roofing system from damage caused by ultraviolet radiation, reduces thermal shock and seals water entry points, the manufacturer says.

The system can be used on asphalt, modified bitumen, metal, concrete, TPO, PVC and EPDM roofing systems.

System Components

According to the Beloit, WI-based manufacturer, the coating system features:

  • Si Cleaner to prepare the substrate for priming;
  • Two primers to improve adhesion of the top coat—The Si 2-Part Epoxy Primer for use on built-up, modified bitumen, EPDM, PVC, metal, concrete, and aluminum-coated roofs and in areas subject to ponding water and Si TPO Primer for use on TPO membranes; 
  • 100% Silicone Sealant—A multi-purpose sealant for use, in conjunction with Tietex reinforcement roofing fabric, in completing repair and maintenance tasks;
  • Three top coats—100% Silicone Roof Coating (available in white and gray), 100% Silicone Masonry Wall Coating (available in white and gray) and 100% Silicone Skylight Coating (available in clear); and
  • Si Cleaning Solvent to wash tools and equipment.

Additional Features

All products are solvent-free and comply with volatile organic compound (VOC) regulations throughout North America, according to Mule-Hide.

Further, the white top coats meet Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) cool roof requirements, the company says.

It offers a quick cure time, making same-day recoating projects possible, the company adds.
