National Provider of Cool Roofing Technology Announces New Reflective Roof Coatings

Published on 2006-03-03. Author : SpecialChem

ROCKFORD, Minn. -- Representatives from ERSystems, Inc. announced the launch of three new products in their roof coating line. The products include ER KynaKote, a coating that adheres to Kynar500 based paints used on metal roofs, Eraguard 1000 QC, a quick cure coating that dries independent of humidity and Eraguard CleanCoat, a coating that resists dirt pickup.

"These products address a strong need in roofing technology that we've identified based on customer feedback and our own industry observations. CleanCoat in particular has been needed for reflective roofing for quite some time," said CEO Tim Leonard. Leonard added all three new products were formally introduced at the International Roofing Exposition in Las Vegas in February.

KynaKote adheres to existing fluoro-polymer based paints. The product exhibits excellent color retention, resistance to mildew and stains, and physical properties improve as it is exposed to sunlight. Other roof coatings typically do not adhere well to pre-existing fluoro-polymer based paints like Kynar 500.

ER 1000 QC addresses the problem of curing in humidity and sets nearly three times faster than other roof coatings. ER CleanCoat incorporates both Teflon and Kynar to provide a highly reflective surface that is also extremely resistant to dirt pick up.

Leonard and his brother, Tony Leonard, own ER Systems and its sister company, Prairie Technologies. Both companies are based in Rockford, Minnesota. ER Systems was founded by James Leonard in 1993. The company manufactures a complete line of highly reflective coatings, sealants, membranes and adhesives for roofs.
