SMARTCOAT™ 600 Acrylic Traffic Coat is a unique, water-based coating designed to protect walking areas and paths on smooth roofing systems. SMARTCOAT 600 can be used on coated and liquid-applied roof systems, as well as approved single ply1, metal, modified bitumen and BUR roofing. It is formulated with extremely tough acrylic resins and binders to form a long lasting walking surface on smooth and coated roofs. SMARTCOAT 600 contains an aggregate to form a textured non-slip surface with very high abrasion resistance. When applied properly it will protect the roof surface from damage due to foot traffic. It will also provide a non-slip surface adding an extra level of safety for personnel walking on the roof surface. This product can be reinforced with polyester fabric to provide an even greater level of protection from puncture and equipment damage in areas of high abuse. SMARTCOAT 600 allows the normal flow of water on the roof surface. It does not block or dam water like roof protection pads and sheets.
