Safe-T-Plex Elastomeric Roof Coating provides
roofing, specialty storage and infrastructure applications. With a fast
application time, higher tensile strength and improved low-temperature
elongation, this coating will stand up to almost anything while

Elastomeric Roof Coating will reduce air conditioning energy costs by
as 30%, depending upon geographic
location and individual building characteristics. Heat stress on
the roof structure is virtually eliminated.

especially asphalt roofing systems. Cool roof technology

Tighten all screws or replace
them with the next largest size if they are spinning. Remove loose rust, dirt, oily
residues with high pressure wash. Rusted steel roofing must
be primed with a good quality rust primer such as our Rustite
Direct to Metal Rust Primer. Problem seams and holes can be filled with
our Lap Joint Sealer or sealed using our Tape-Kote Roof Seam Tape.
(Safe-T-Plex forms a watertight adhesive bond to this tape.)
Apply Tape-Kote Seam Tape around all objects that protrude through the
roof (air conditioners, vents, breather pipes, etc.). Contact us or
