An airless sprayer is the most efficient way to apply roof coatings. Airless sprayers use a hydraulic pump to atomize the coating. Elastomeric coatings require higher pressures and flow rates than paints. A roof rig usually has a minimum pressure of 3000 psi with a flow rate
A siphon hose on the material inlet typically is used to draw material directly from 5-gallon pails or 55-gallon drums.
A spray gun with an extender wand allows for comfortable coating application without having to hold the spray gun uncomfortably close to the surface. A .017 tip is usually recommended for roof primers and .031 for elastomeric coatings. Tips are reversible for easy cleaning and clearing of occasional tip clogs.
Proper spray technique involves keeping a gun level with a roof's surface at all times, maintaining a consistent distance between the spray tip and surface. Use
If overspray is a concern, consider using coating spreaders instead. Depending on your roof configuration, spreaders may be faster and easier to use. Spreaders can apply a consistent 20 wet mils in one pass with application speeds up to 300 linear feet per minute.
Badly deteriorated EPDM roof was leaking everywhere. They were able to fix all the leaks with just one coat of EnergyGuard Aromatic Polyurethane.
This newly constructed 18,800sf building at the Andersen AFB in Guam has a concrete roof primed with PrimeLock Epoxy Primer and coated with 45 dry mils of EnergyMax Silicone Coating to keep it cool and leak-free.

A seamless, watertight Lexis silicone coating system on the modified bitumen roof of March Air Reserve Base in California fixed all roof leaks.
Andersen AFB, GU
Structural cracks on this concrete roof required a custom, lab-tested solution. Lexis Silicone Coatings not only delivered. We exceeded.
Seamlessly Beautiful. CT Walker was looking for a high build roof coating with the same brick red color as the rest of the school.
Air conditioning can account for 30% of the operating costs of a business. Roof Coatings reflect up to 90% of the sun's heat.
