The Ceramic Shield
The Protective Ceramic Shield for Metal Roofs
Prevents Roof Movement / Thermal Shock
Ceramic Insulation Coatings applied to Metal Roofs minimizes thermal shock and roof movement. The system helps prevent expansion and contraction which are both major causes of leaks and at the same time insulates, protects, and makes the building more attractive.
Prevents Corrosion / Neutralizes Rust
The System applied to metal roofs incorporates multiple inhibitors in an advanced state-of-the-art metal protecting chemistry. It corrects present corrosion on metal surfaces, as well as preventing future corrosion on the surface. It also resists a wide spectrum of acid, alkali and caustic attack.
The Ceramic Insulation system for metal roofs completely seals and waterproofs seams, vents and fastening devices. Polyester reinforced membrane embedded with high quality fluid-applied waterproofing materials provides lasting water protection summer and winter. This seam sealing technique prevents water from entering seams and joints, and prevents wintertime expansion of these areas due to freezing water expansion
Solar Radiation Control
The fluid-applied ceramic system for roofing keeps metal buildings cooler in the summer, and tests have proven its ability to save up to 40% on cooling costs. As cooling costs are lowered, the work place environment is made more comfortable.
Keeping the summer heat out and the winter heat in!
During the winter season in the northern hemisphere, heat naturally, travels from the warmer areas towards the colder outside (ambient) air, or in such instances where the roles are reversed, the same will occur.
Metal roof (12,000sq.ft.) on an industrial building demonstrates results of heat loss due to inadequate insulation between roof girths and metal roof cladding. Spray-applied insulation was installed on the interior side of the building roof girths to eliminate heat loss radiated and transferred from interior to exterior roofing. Results proved successful in controlling snowmelt and ice damning. (Grande Prairie, AB)
Ceramic Insulation Coatings has a low K-Factor which indicates high R-Value the lack of mass thickness in the coatings, as opposed to the conventional insulations will not be enough to act as a conductive insulator through the substrate to the outside.
