Protect and extend the life of your roof.

Types of Asphaltic Roof Coatings

Polyglass offers an array of different asphaltic roof coating products, including:

Aluminum coatings

When applied, aluminum coatings form a reflective, metallic shield over the base material. Polyglass aluminum coatings are specifically formulated to be compatible with our roofing membranes, but they are designed to protect a variety of asphalt-based roofs.

Mastics

Easy-to-apply mastics are roof coatings that offer excellent adhesion and weathering characteristics. They can be used in repair solutions for a multitude of roof types.

Modified cements and adhesives

Polyglass modified cements and adhesives are ideal for use with SBS modified bitumen roof membranes as a cold-applied adhesive and are specially formulated to be compatible with Polyglass roofing membranes.

Protective coatings

As a safer and more efficient alternative to hot asphalt, Polyglass’ protective coatings perform well as adhesives for mineral granules and organic roll roofing membranes.

Emulsions and primers

Polyglass’ emulsions and primers serve as a protective surface for metal roofing, masonry, stucco, parapet walls, curbs, and base flashings. They can also be used as a dampproofing compound for below-grade walls.

  • What is the difference between fibered and non-fibered coatings?

    A fibered roof coating is infused with fibers, such as fiberglass, to increase the strength and tear-resistance of a roof coating, albeit at the expensive of elasticity. A non-fibered roof coating does not contain fibers to reinforce its strength, but it offers greater elasticity once cured.
