Together, these two components form a fully reinforced monolithic membrane. e resin cures within minutes, resulting in a quicker preparation time than other roofing membranes. In addition, the all-in- one roofing system does not require a topcoat, which cuts installation time and the cost of labor.

In addition to chemical resis- tance, HiChem meets National Science Foundation (NSF) Standard 61 require- ments for use in potable water storage tanks of 5 gal. (18.9 L) and larger or on pipelines with 0.75‐in. (19.1 mm) pipe diameter or greater.

Flash times and cure temperatures for the coating are similar to those commonly associ- ated with current urethane topcoats, eliminating concerns about fast wet-on- wet application times and enabling the coating to work without constraints on existing paint lines.
