12 ROOF COATINGS 2018 COATINGSPROMAG.COM Roofing Projects continued on page 14 that comes into play in terms of removing rust and adding a rust-inhibiting primer, tightening fasteners, and adding sealants onto fasteners and the seams," Arnold said. "ose are types of minor retrofits." Other surfaces that may require primer include gravel stops, masonry walls and flooring, gypsum, concrete roof decks, and other porous surfaces. In general, the goal of surface preparation on roofing jobs is to remove contami- nants, such as dust, chalking film, bitumen exudate, greases or oils, and other loose debris, to allow for better adhesion of the new coating to the substrate, according to the Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA). Material Matters Another benefit of understanding the specific substrate and jobsite is that it can help contractors or clients make the best coating and waterproofing selection for each roof 's unique needs. Many roofing jobs will use either acrylic, polyure- thane, or silicone coatings — and sometimes in tandem with SPF. "e decisions that are made by either the designer, contractor, or building owner should primarily pertain to two things," said Icynene-Lapolla's Kramer. "First is the substrate, and second is whether the ability is there to entirely remove water from the roof, or if they expect some ponding. With some of the very low-slope or almost flat roofs, it's diffi- cult to completely eliminate the water at all times. Some products are more water-resistant than others." If additional water assistance is needed, roof sloping compounds such as Polyglass' POLYSLOPE can be used to create positive drain- age on roofs that have low spots and divert standing water.
