At RCI 2017, March 17-18 in Anaheim, Calif., Kemper System America Inc. will showcase its newly acquired range of liquid-applied solutions for protecting the full Building Envelope and demonstrate new products at booth #321.
Kemper System, now in its 60th year, offers a single source of high-value solutions for the Building Envelope, from top to bottom, inside and out, including four lines added through the acquisition of STS Coatings Inc. in December: 1) Wall Guardian air barrier coatings for use in cavity-wall constructions that offer three benefits in one -- air barrier, water barrier, and vapor retarder, 2) Roof Guardian Technologies elastomer-based coatings for roof recovery and other projects, 3) GreatSeal construction sealants for windows, doors, masonry, roof flashings, etc. that are 100 percent solids and formulated for performance even in damp, dry or cold conditions down to 40oF, 4) HeatBloc ultra-radiant barrier coating for residential attic spaces that can block over 80 percent of radiant heat to reduce indoor cooling requirements.
Covering the Building Envelope
“We have broadened our portfolio across the Building Envelope to equip roofing, waterproofing, and restoration contractors with proven solutions that can create value for their customers,” said Richard Doornink, President and Managing Director, Kemper System America Inc.
“When contractors can extend the life of existing roofs or help reduce building energy requirements, customers remember,” said Doornink.
The company’s range encompasses a variety of liquid-applied systems including new elastomeric roof coatings for modified bitumen and metal roof recovery projects, as well as odor-free and new rapid-curing reinforced membrane systems – all available with ratings that exceeds LEED solar reflective requirements for Cool Roofs.
Turn Modified Bit and Metal Roofs ‘White’
Roofing contractors can transform existing modified bitumen roofs or metal roofs into white reflective ‘Cool Roofs’ with two new roof recovery options from Kemper System:
Roof Guardian RG-170 (SRI 109) is a Class A fire-rated elastomer-based coating system for prolonging the life of modified bitumen assemblies, and Roof Guardian RG-180 system (SRI 108), ideal for recovering metal roof assemblies. The Roof Guardian line of liquid-applied elastomer-based roof coatings also spans solutions for smooth-surfaced built-up roofing (BUR), polymer-modified asphalt (PMA), and single-ply roof systems.
Also at RCI, Kemper System will feature two new fully reinforced membrane systems for Cool Roofs: Kemperol AC Speed FR system (SRI 108) is a fast-curing Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA), and Kemperol® Reflect 2K FR (SRI 110) is an odor-free, low-VOC system. Both are fire rated for Class A assemblies and available in gray for monolithic protection on a range of other projects including green roofs and ‘blue roof’ water retention systems. Also featured will be COLEAN durable coatings systems for protecting surfaces prone to heavy wear such as balconies and parking garages.
For over 60 years, Kemper System has been a global industry leader in cold liquid- applied, reinforced roofing and waterproofing, having invented the technology and holding the first patents. Today the company offers an expanded range of Building Envelope solutions to protect against weather, preserve the integrity of surfaces, and enhance the comfort and value of public buildings and commercial real estate.
