"Acrylic technology has been around a long time, but over the past 20 years, acrylics have gained more and more market share, and they've created great advantages in the technology to help them be more beneficial to the users," said Icynene-Lapolla's Kramer. "ere are now multiple curing levels within the acrylics, with both a regular standard moisture cure and now a fast-set cure that gets it to cure within 20 to 30 minutes. at allows the contractors a much greater window of application with acrylics than in the past." e ElastaHyde line from Western Colloid is one example of an acrylic with a quick-set formulation, as is the PG 700-QS water-based elastomeric from Polyglass. Meanwhile, for contractors wanting an even deeper understanding of the acrylic technology, coatings manufac- turer GAF is offering contractors a "virtual reality" experi- ence of its coatings plant on the company's website.

"Silicone delivers incredible adhesion, allowing for application to a number of substrates, such as EPDM, that couldn't previously be coated without a primer," said Israel Gutman, technical director for the APOC line at coatings manufacturer Gardner-Gibson. "Silicone offers a faster moisture cure, eliminating problems with wash-off from thunderstorms or other curve balls. It can be applied in a wider range of temperatures, expanding application opportu- nities in cooler climates." VENDOR TEAM National Roofing Contractors Association Education 10255 W Higgins Rd.
