WHY TEAR OFF WHEN YOU CAN RESTORE?

 

SMARTCOAT® - CERTAINTEED’S COMPREHENSIVE LINE OF LOW-SLOPE ROOF RESTORATION PRODUCTS

 

Liquid-applied roof restoration is the fastest growing segment of low-slope roofing, and it’s easy to see why. Designed for use over almost any preexisting substrate, CertainTeed’s SMARTCOAT roof coating system can restore a roof to full service without the expense and waste of tearing off and replacement with factory-made membranes.

 

Smart, Sensible & Sustainable

There are many reasons roof restoration is the fastest growing segment in low-slope. SMARTCOAT silicone and acrylic coatings are direct-bond optimized formulations, eliminating the need for primer on many roofing substrates, and complemented by UV stable and high elasticity mastics and sealants. Don’t waste dollars and resources by tearing off when you can restore.

100 Roof Wash  

Nothing sticks to dirt.  Avoid call backs by starting with a clean slate.  

200 Series Bleed Blocker/Primers

Our universal primer is engineered to optimize critical adhesion interfaces across a variety of substrates, when needed.

300 Series Mastics/Sealants

If your mastics don’t have the muscle to permanently seal leaks, your “restoration” project won’t last.

400 Series Coatings

SMARTCOAT Acrylic and Silicone Coatings are high-solids, direct-bond optimized formulations. And, yes, you can recoat our silicone.

CLEAN

SMARTCOAT 100 Roof Wash is a highly versatile industrial cleaner and degreaser intended for application to all types of roofs prior to power washing in preparation for the application of SMARTCOAT Primer, Mastic and/or Coatings. This product lifts dirt and grease from the surface of the roof including small pores and irregularities. SMARTCOAT 100 is both a safer and more sustainable alternative to toxic cleaners, bleaches and solvents. The concentrated formula cleans, degreases and deodorizes without harsh chemicals. The formula is non-toxic, non-abrasive, non-corrosive and safe for use on all water-safe washable surfaces.

Use as is or dilute with hot or cold water as shown below:

  • HEAVY DUTY: Full strength to 1:1 dilution
  • GENERAL PURPOSE: Up to 1:10 dilution
  • LIGHT CLEANING: Up to 1:30 dilution

PRIME/PREPARE

SMARTCOAT 400 Series Acrylic and Silicone Coatings are direct-bond optimized- they have been engineered to adhere to most substrates without the need for primer. However, there are a few scenarios where surface priming or preparation is recommended or required:

ADHESION TEST FAILURE

It is best practice to conduct an adhesion analysis on every project, in accordance with the SMARTCOAT Field Adhesion Test protocol. If needed, SMARTCOAT 210 Universal Primer will enhance adhesion to most roofing substrates.

BITUMINOUS SUBSTRATES

Whether restoring with SMARTCOAT 400/401 Acrylic or 450 Silicone, it is best practice to prepare an existing bituminous roof surface with SMARTCOAT 200 Asphalt Bleed Blocker, a water-based formulation manufactured with premium acrylic resins designed to block bituminous oil exudate or “bleed-through” from staining SMARTCOAT 400 series coatings. Highly aged, weathered or brittle asphaltic surfaces may be rejuvenated with SMARTCOAT 220 Asphalt Emulsion prior to coating.

SEAL

If your mastics don’t have the muscle to permanently seal leaks, your “restoration” project won’t last.  

SMARTCOAT Mastics seal leaking seams, fasteners, penetrations and/or any splits, tears or deficiencies in the roof’s surface prior to coating with SMARTCOAT ACRYLIC or SILICONE.  When a caulk bead is preferred, or a damp surface in play, SMARTCOAT 370 UltraSeal MS Polymer Sealant gets the job done.

SMARTCOAT 365 SILICONE REPAIR MASTIC, 2G
When you want a repair that's more than a patch, #365 is your go-to. This year-round permanent repair silicone mastic can be applied to damp surfaces and as low as 32°F. Seals asphalt, metal, single-ply and most coating surfaces. UV-stable, coating is not required.

COVERAGE
12-13 sq.ft. per gallon applied 1/8” thick; additional material may be required when 3-coursing to saturate and encapsulate polyester fabric.

SMARTCOAT 370 UltraSeal, 10.1 oz Caulk Tube, 24/Carton
Silyl-modified polyether high performance, multi-purpose, low VOC, single component adhesive/sealant designed for bonding and sealing a wide range of porous and non-porous construction materials.  Not intended for use on TPO.  Paintable by latex-based paints or SMARTCOAT 400 Series Coatings approximately one hour after application.  Will not crack, shrink or peel.  Easy to gun and tool for quick application.

SMARTCOAT 420 Fibered Aluminum Coating

Heavy-duty fibered aluminum coating that gives maximum reflectivity while giving unsurpassed protection against moisture and corrosion. Our unique formulation forms a heavy, brilliant, silvery finish that preserves, prevents rust, inhibits fungus and reflects over 70% of the sun’s damaging rays, while reducing interior temperatures. Our use of paint grade aluminum pigment (as opposed to the coarser, less leafing “roofing” grade) gives a much finer leafing effect and a vastly superior coating to other brands. Our use of naturally occurring bituminous resins fortifies the asphalt with unparalleled strength to give it greater resistance to the damaging effects of the elements. Meets or exceeds all the requirements of ASTM D 2824-06 Type III and Federal Specification TTC 1079.

Coverage: 1 – 1.5 gallons per 100 square feet.

SMARTCOAT 450 High Solids Silicone Coating (5G, 55G) -White/Light Gray/Dark Gray/Santa Fe Tan and Black2
