Does elastomeric insulation make the best roof coating? To answer this question, first we need to know about elastomers properties and what they are made from. One of outstanding features of elastomer materials is their strength and resistance against high temperature. That is why elastomeric materials are working greatly in construction industry for instance roof coating – which are 10 times thicker than paint and more effective.
To know more about these outstanding roof coverings, keep on reading.
Elastomer is short form of elastic polymer and can be made in 2 ways: natural and synthetic. Naturally, they are rubber based made from trees, which is called latex. Synthetic elastomers, on the other hand are the byproducts of oil or petroleum. This material is made of polymer. Its elasticity, viscosity and strength is far greater than natural rubber.
Polymer is the main component of elastomers – which are pretty much used in elastomeric roof coating. Carbon black has reinforced its structure against impacts.
Elastomers are flexible and have a good tension property. They have an excellent ability to recover their shape. In synthetic material they are rubber-based and have a closed-cell structure which are in forms of sheets, tubes and rolls. They are resistant to tear and wear and abrasion. The elastomeric material is strong in repelling gas, steam, water and fluid. It adds hugely to the life span of any roof systems. That is why elastomeric roof coating is durable and lasts between 40 to 50 years.
The primary usage of elastomers are in paints, adhesive and sealing industry. As it is a waterproofing solution for deck applications. Elastomers are thermoplastic polymers which can resist in hot and cold weather. Besides that, it has a high tensile ability and impact resistant. This coating reduce slip stick properties between surface and the roofs. Elastomers can also reduce noise in some variations. At Sepidfam Varna Company we offer soundproof, waterproof sandwich roof panels with elastomeric foam coating.
Energy efficiency has become more important topic in building construction, since it helps to save money. Besides resistance to high temperature up to 150 °C, elastomeric coating also adds an affective extra layer that protects your roof. Not only has this benefited the roof in hot weather, but also can withstand very low temperature down to -50 °C.
Elastomeric coating can be installed on your roof and wall. As in roofing it comes in 2 types: liquid form and as a foam placed inside the roof sheets – sandwich panels are a good example of that. Sepidfam Varna UPVC elastomeric roof and wall cladding has a low thermal conductivity. It reflects UV rays and reduce heat flow on the surface of your roof. This helps to save up to 30% energy.
The main advantage of our UPVC sandwich panel roofing with elastomeric insulation is its anticorrosion and anti rust features. While most of metal coatings have the issue of water damage and corrosion. UPVC sandwich panels with elastomeric insulation in between layers repel water. With great overlapping feature, it plays the role of a waterproof covering for the roofing system. This is one of the main reason our product last for about 50 years. Up until then it requires minimum maintenance with barely any repairing process.
Elastomeric coating is becoming a popular roof solution these days. It is cost-effective and is a great alternatives for home owners who are tired of corrosion, rust or weather damaging. But like any other products it has its own disadvantages. Although it is not many, better to say it is natural features.
As we said before, roof sheets that their insulation are made of elastomeric foams are flexible coating which are useful in many applications. Including arched or curved roofs that help the appealing building design and the installation faster. But this feature of elastomeric foam can also be its disadvantage. For example, in wall covering, these sheets must be able to stay flat and strong. But with elastomeric foam, this level of stiffness may not be possible. They are not hard enough. That is why in most cases elastomeric foams must have either a thick roof covering or be reinforced with very strong coverages.
Another disadvantage of elastomeric coating is that it is not suitable for every roof system. If the roof is too old or damaged, repairing and inspection is needed beforehand. So make sure your roof is compatible with elastomeric coating.
May be this one is not the main drawbacks but it has to do with proper installation. Not most crews and roofers know how to install them properly. If elastomeric roof panels are not installed properly, something not good will happen. In high wind and sand storms there is a possibility of roof tearing off the house. So make sure you use skilled roofers and contractors for installation.
While the majority of people use elastomeric sandwich panels for their industrial roof coating; it still has residential application – in hot or humid areas. If you want a building that can save your money and increase the lifespan of your roof, elastomeric sandwich panels can be the best option. At Sepidfam Varna Company we offer the best alternatives for damaged and corroded roofs. Being lightweight and easy to handle, cost-effective and higher life expectancy, you can be sure to have a low maintenance roofing system that can last up to many years without any concern for repairing or extra costs.
In our factories, Ewe make elastomeric roof coating that does not contain toxic chemical ingredients, as in most cases reported. They are eco-friendly and can be recycled easily at any time.
