Item # ROOFMATE, ROOFMATE The Roof Preservation System

Meets ASTM D6083; ENERGY STAR® & CRRC Listed

ROOF MATE is a water-based, high solids elastomeric coating utilizing the latest advances in acrylic technology. Highest quality 100% acrylic resins are combined with reinforcing laminar pigments, an effective biocide package and non-migrating fire retardants, resulting in superior durability, weatherproofing, ultraviolet resistance, algae/mildew resistance and fire retardancy. ROOF MATE is a highly reflective, permanently flexible "breathing" membrane, allowing moisture vapor from the substrate or building interior to escape while remaining impervious to mass water penetration from the exterior. ROOF MATE is also available in a high-tensile strength version for roof areas subject to heavy maintenance traffic, severe weather conditions, chemical fallout, etc., as well as a quick set version for use on applications where a more rapid resistance to moisture is necessary.

Colors
ROOF MATE is stocked in White, Light Gray or Medium Gray. An unlimited selection of custom colors are also available for specific applications. Color chips must be furnished to UNITED for all custom colors. ROOF MATE QS (Quick Set) is available for marginal conditions when a faster set time is desired with white or light colored topcoats.

Basic Uses
ROOF MATE was especially developed for extending the life of metal, conventional built-up, modified bitumen, concrete, Hypalon, EPDM, sprayed-in-place or board-stock insulation, or composite shingle roofs. ROOF MATE forms a waterproof elastomeric seal, uniformly covering the textured profile of various substrates to form a monolithic membrane, providing protection from normal weathering, aging and ultraviolet exposure.

Warranty
ROOF MATE warranties are available in five (5), ten (10) or fifteen (15) year periods. The warranties guarantee the installation against leaks caused by normal weathering. Refer to individual warranty documents for additional information.
