New Coatings to Restore Metal Roofs

THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013


Firestone Building Products Company has introduced a new suite of coating products reported to help extend the life of commercial and industrial metal roofs.

The Fluid Applied Metal Roofing Systems were developed using elastomeric roof coating technology, formulated with 100 percent acrylic polymer, to offer superior adhesion, water protection and durability, according to the company.

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.

Firestone Fluid Applied Metal Roofing Systems are further designed to protect the building envelope from harsh weather, severe temperatures, airborne pollutants and emissions.

The product line is also ENERGY STAR® approved, Firestone adds.

Additional Benefits, Application

The company says additional benefits of Firestone Fluid Applied Metal Roofing Systems include:

  • Easy installation;
  • Recycled content of 95 percent;
  • Cost effective alternative to replacing a metal roof;
  • High solid count allows for a uniform distribution;
  • 10-year warranty available; and
  • Tax deductible in the first year.

The metal coating systems are applied in three steps: prep, seal and coat.
