Two new cool roof solutions from Kemper System America Inc. (West Seneca, New York) are designed to extend the life of metal roofs, built-up roofing, modified bitumen and aged single-ply roof systems.

Roof Guardian RG-170—an elastomer-based coating system—is intended to prolong the life of roof assemblies, with a solar reflectance index of 109 and Class A fire rating. Roof Guardian RG-180, on the other hand, is a fiber-reinforced elastomeric coating intended for metal, concrete, single ply, modified bitumen, granular cap sheets and other approved surfaces.

Kemper System

Two new cool roof solutions are available from Kemper System America Inc., which are designed for extending the life of metal roofs, built-up roofing, modified bitumen and aged single-ply roof systems.

Both Roof Guardian products are made to go on at a dry film thickness of 8.3 mils, with one gallon of the coating covering 100 square feet and a dry time of an hour. Both RG-170 and RG-180 are Energy Star and CRRC rated.

When the reflective, bright white finish is used, roof surface temperatures lower, the company says; the high solar reflectance index also lowers indoor temperatures, which Kemper says reduces building cooling requirements. Designed to resist cracking and peeling, the Roof Guardian coatings also have waterproofing properties and long-term mildew resistance in order to extend the service life of the roof.

Kemper’s Roof Guardian coatings are created using an acrylic polymer base for adhesion and durability, and users can apply both with a commercial-grade sprayer or rollers.
