"e other significant factor in commercial roofing is the type of exposure that the roof might have," Kramer said. "If it has steam vents, chemical venting, or oils, urethanes and silicones provide greater chemical resistance. Some of those decisions are made by the types of exposure and the differ- ent conditions." W hile Icynene-Lapolla has long been known as an SPF company, Kramer said the company provides many products beyond that. "ere's too much market share to focus just on the foam," Kramer said. One such product it offers is its new RCS 5000 acrylic elastomeric roof coating. Manufactured using advanced all-acrylic polymer technology, the coating creates a fully adhered seamless membrane. e fluid-applied solution is resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light with reflectivity capabilities, offering both cooler interiors and energy savings. Generally speaking, each class of coatings offers its own advantages and disadvantages. For example, acrylic or elasto- meric coatings are highly reflective and ultraviolet (UV) resis- tant, and they can be used in most climates. ey can lose thickness with weathering, though, and need to be applied at above 50 °F (10 °C). ey often do not perform as well in situa- tions with ponding water. "Acrylic-based coatings that are bright white have a wide variety of price points, but in general, they will be easier to install, cheaper to buy, and get the job done," said Kemper's Arnold.
