COATINGSPRO ROOF COATINGS 2017 15 Hyload Inc. Adds to Products with Acquisition of Elastikote Hyload Inc. (800) 457-4056,, Wadsworth, OH – March 10, 2017 – Hyload Inc., manufac- turer and supplier of roofing and waterproofing solutions, announced its acquisition of ElastiKote LLC, designer and manufacturer of VOC exempt solvent-based roofing and waterproofing fluid applied coating. is acquisition will allow Hyload to expand on its mission to provide customers with high-performance, top-quality roofing, waterproofing, and masonry solutions. Hyload's current product offering includes through-wall flashing, membrane roofing, waterproofing and green roof systems. With the acquisition, Elastikote is an ideal addition to Hyload's product line with its high-performance fluid applied coating for roofing and waterproofing. e seamless, watertight fluid applied coating accentuates both of Hyload's current segments, roofing and waterproofing. It also provides roofing system applicators with the option to use a roller, or a sprayer, instead of a membrane, which is often preferred when it comes to time and cost efficiency. According to Dave Afanador, Business Development Manager at Hyload, Elastkote's products specifically serve to extend the life of an existing roof, as well as adding light reflec- tivity. "is product can be rolled or sprayed over the entire roof surface, new, or old, and, depending on the condition of the existing substrate, may extend its life for over 10 years," says Afanador. e coating can be used on any type of roof chemistry, from metal to asphalt based roofing. Elastikote's fluid coating also has an option for higher reflectivity, a feature that's in high demand as an energy-effi- cient solution for both residential and commercial buildings. "While marketed as a commercial coating product, Elastikote will also be integrated into the residential, and construction distribution side of the business," Afanador says, and this also provides applicators with more options, since some may prefer a fluid over an existing membrane system. Moving forward, Afanador says that "We continue to strive to provide excellent solutions to the market and this product line is part of it, we plan to continue adding more product offerings in the next few years."
