        What does Cool Roof Rated mean:

       According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency:

For millions of Americans living in and around cities, heat islands are of growing concern.   This phenomenon describes urban and suburban temperatures that are 2 to 10° F (1 to 6°C) hotter than nearby rural areas.   Elevated temperatures can impact communities by increasing peak energy demand, air conditioning costs, air pollution levels, and heat-related illness and mortality.

   Ideal for all Industrial, Commercial and Residential Buildings

For use on: Composite Fiberglass Shingles * Asphalt Shingles * Various Membrane Systems * Concrete and Fired Clay Tiles * Primed Metals

CERAMIC INSULCOAT ROOF provides beautification, UV protection & thermal barrier enhancement. It is a strong, tough coating, formulated with "CERYLIUM", a proprietary formula of precision blended, high performance ingredients, in a complex, 100% acrylic suspension with superior adhesion, breathability, elasticity and weatherproofing.  It is designed to provide the ultimate protection against ultra-violet degradation and weathering. Ceramic InsulCoat ROOF has demonstrated significant thermal resistance under laboratory tests when compared to batt insulation.

Ceramic InsulCoat Roof Benefits

Thermal Barrier - Ceramic particulate plus high titanium levels provide significant thermal barrier protection.

Energy Efficient - Reflected heat rays increase efficiency.  Slowing the movement of heat through the substrate provides heat management, greater comfort, and reduced energy consumption.

Fire Resistant - Self-extinguishing, does not support flame spread.  Environmentally friendly 100% acrylic water-based product that meets today's strict environmental guidelines.

Titanium Dioxide Enriched - Titanium Dioxide is an excellent UV inhibitor.

Weatherproof Enhancement - Creates a weather-proof membrane that significantly reduces potential damage and deterioration of the substrate.  Reduces rot and mildew formation.

Flexible - Designed to resist degradation caused by thermal impact.

Colour Choices - Resists fading.  White and pastel colours available.

Suggested Preparation Procedures

1. Repair all leaks

2. Pressure wash and clean, or airbrush and clean substrate.  Remove all loose materials.

3. Apply Ceramic InsulSeal to porous substrates.

4. Finish with Ceramic InsulCoat ROOF for protection, insulation and beautification.





Performance Characteristics

Thermal Characteristics - "The Envirocoat Inc., Ceramic InsulCoat provided a greater thermal difference between the coated side and the uncoated side. The leading brand of exterior latex paint provided a much less thermal barrier difference. The conclusion, therefore, is that the Ceramic InsulCoat definitely provides a much better insulating factor than a regular exterior latex". (LS Consulting)

"From the testing completed, it is apparent that the Envirocoat Inc. Ceramic InsulCoat membrane provides a thermal barrier against heat and cold thermal transmission, as tested in comparison with batt insulation." (Inchcape lWarnock Hersey Professional Services. Ltd.)

FTMS 141 -Method 811.1

100% condensing 5% salt fog at 95° F -35° C

336 hours with no evidence of film deterioration, blistering or peeling from substrate

(250 hours required to pass Federal Specifications)
Accelerated Weathering

ASTM D 4798 / G155(a)

No cracking or checking after 1,000 hours accelerated weathering.
