We recently held a demonstration for our new Rapid Curing products, known for their brilliant adaptation to the winter weather. We were keen to test the instant waterproofing ability and to show just how easy application can be. Roofing contractors, have your questions answered below.
Is application really that easy?
In short, yes. We started with LiquidGutter, our system for coating industrial gutters. Using a demo gutter joint, often the toughest part to coat, we demonstrated how important it is to lay down a bond break. This is a simple stretch of masking tape positioned over the gutter seams, and enables the system to adapt to future movements in the gutter. It’s straightforward, and highly effective. We then slotted a GlassMat over the bolts and positioned it for the coating.
Is it really that fast to cure?
The LiquidGutter tin was opened, then the pre-weighed catalyst added, stirred for a minute, and simply painted on to the gutter joint. It began to harden within minutes and became cured enough to touch within 30 minutes.
How resilient is it?
Well, we started off the EdgeArmour demonstration, our system for cut edge corrosion, by asking people to lift a roller stuck to a metal sheet. It had been used to apply a coat of EdgeArmour months before, and we left the roller, covered in the coating, on the metal sheet. It’s become something of a mascot for the rapid curing’s strength.
Is it really instantly waterproof?
Many contractors have to stop work or even redo a semi-cured system when rain threatens the day, and the rapid curing systems have surpassed most other systems in this aspect, particularly fiberglass. Rapid curing proves its place as being on the forefront of coating technology, satisfying the building’s needs, as well as the contractor’s.
The best way to discover what rapid curing can do, is to see for yourself.
