Liquid Coatings


Over the years there have been numerous types of roofs as well as roofing sealants. Some of course better than others. I am sure many are familiar with standard metal or galvanized metal roofing as well as the standard asphalt shingle roof. Newer systems include neoprene, spray foam and Hypalon. And finally we have the singly ply or membrane roofing and then last but not least the liquid coatings. Depending on such variables as your budget, overall goal, product life expectancy as well as climate conditions you choice narrows down pretty quickly. When dealing with the newest hi-tech systems we expect to pay more but we also expect much more in the way of longevity and durability. There is one common denominator on all roofing products; that being, overtime all will leak. Common roof failures occur due to a coating being applied to an otherwise unsuitable substrate either due to compatibility issues or simply an unstable substrate. Other failures are caused by poor installation of shingles, gutter systems or parapet walls. We know this because we get countless calls throughout the year from each and every one of these scenarios.

With the advent of the single ply rubber membranes like EPDM or Hypalon we expected a very long-term solution to our roofs. And for many of us these systems proved their worth. The one issue however is within the seams of these membranes. Countless repairs are done each year on seamed membrane roofs. Slopping roofs will most certainly develop gaps or faulty seams much quicker than level roofing. With the development and formulation of Liquid EPDM rubber the 26 years it has been on the market has proved itself to outlast traditional roofing materials. If your roof needs to be recoated or touched up within the seams Liquid EPDM rubber is the solution that finally achieves what many have been missing for years. A maintenance free roofing system that will not disappoint.

Liquid Elastomeric coatings were developed to repair leaks and extend the service life of existing roofs. These products will be one of four generic types for ambient cure:

Liquid EPDM Coatings

Nearly all of the liquid coatings could be used on sloped roofs as long as they were compatible with the substrate. They will have weatherability, flexibility, and adhesion. Flat roofs have an additional requirement – the coating must be able to withstand ponding water. Figure 1 shows the relative water vapor transmission of several polymer types.

    • 5000 sq ft concrete roof

      5000 sq ft concrete roof. Prep work consisted of power wash of roof and preparation of seams as see in “before” picture. Approximately 7 sets of ProFlex primer was used and 28 Pails of Liquid EPDM Rubber. Cost per sq ft approx. $1.66 . Life expectancy is 18-20 before a recoat is needed.

      Hello Greg, Here are the photos, three before, during and after per your request: I will say that your product surpassed our expectations and saved us a huge $7,000 new roof cost. We had no leaks and but were informed during a free roof inspection that we needed a new roof by a local rv establishment. I discovered your website and bought your products just to be on the safe side. We applied the primer as well as the liquid roof. It is definitely something that both genders are able… Read more

      I wanted you to know I researched the product before I spent the $500 on primer and roofing material and went ahead and pulled the trigger and bought it. It went on so easily on a Sunday afternoon. It began raining overnight and the forecast is rain all week. I went out to the pop up this a.m. and the rain is just rolling off, even though the roof is still tacky. I am confident with your warranty that event though it is raining that it will cure in time….

Total square footage of the project was 50,000. Buildings are 8 years old and due to Existing single ply Torch on failure and substrate failure, all roofs were removed and new concrete poured to accept EPDM product. Proper slopes were incorporated in new roof design including proper drainage and scupper installations. Project is located 30 miles North Of Manzanillo Mexico on the west coast. Units are… Read more

      Good morning Guys Adam here from Best Western! We just wanted to say thank you for these great products. We had been having roof leaks on an EPDM roof which were previously, a very temporarily fixed with FlexSeal. After we applied the primer / liquid rubber solution to these areas the leaks stopped, and the rubber is adhering very well to the existing roof. We’ve also attached before and after pictures for you to use as you wish, as well as for the complimentary $25 AMEX card offer we saw… Read more
