Metal Roof Coating
BBA Approved metal roof coating system
BBA Approved metal roof coating system. Metalseal from Liquasil provides a cost-effective method of refurbishing metal profiled roofs and cladding and it comes with a number of flexible guarantee options.
Metalseal, BBA Approved Metal Roof Coating
Metalseal is a metal roof coating and cladding system to be made from a specially formulated silicone polymer to provide a hardened finish that actively repels water, resists environmental dirt pick-up and prevents the build up of unsightly moss and lichen growth.
We think it’s the best metal roof coating available and it has the credential to back up this claim.
BBA Approved under certificate number 18/5536 (sheet 1), Metalseal is the first specialist metal roof coating on the market to have this approval and it’s also recommended by Kingspan, so you can specify and use it with 100% confidence.
But what about the cost?
Actually, Metalseal is cheaper than competing systems, both in terms of product cost and often, installation cost as well.
Metalseal can also be used in conjunction with our unique cut edge corrosion primer to ensure that cut edge corrosion does not affect the Metalseal installation for the duration of the guarantee period.
Metalseal is guaranteed for 20 years against manufacturing defects and is also available with optional insurance backed or latent defects guarantee via selected Liquasil Approved Installers.
If you are involved in specifying metal roof coatings as a building surveyor or architect, it’s time to consider a cost effective alternative to the usual cladding paints that have traditionally been used to date.
Metalseal is designed by Chartered Building Surveyors to provide you with not only a decorative finish, but also a protective finish that will ensure your clients’ buildings will stay looking good for longer, yet will often cost no more than a cladding paint!
A metal roof coating offers an economical and effective way of roof refurbishment and if an optional 12 year Latent Defects Insurance Guarantee is specified, Metalseal can actually add value for building owners.
Ease of application is key to all Liquasil systems.
Metalseal can be installed by airless spray, roller or brush, usually in a single coat, so is suitable for use on smaller and the largest metal roofs.
Uniquely for a silicone coating system, Metalseal is available in any RAL colour, subject to a minimum roof size of just 300 sq metres at no extra cost.
Preparation will depend on the condition of the substrate to which Metalseal is being applied.
If the substrate is in sound condition with no de-lamination of the existing finish apparent, then all that is needed is a roof clean using a jet wash.
If cut edge corrosion is present and the substrate is in poor condition, we recommend that the surface is taken back to bare metal and we recommend a number of economical methods for doing this.
Metal Cladding Coating
Metalseal can also be used as a highly effective and long-lasting cladding coating system and when applied to vertical cladding, it provides a highly effective barrier against grafitti.
In fact, Metalseal is so advanced, that if the coated surface is attacked by grafitti, either paint or marker pen, it will simply wash off with water and a little household detergent, to leave a completely ghost-free finish.
Because nothing sticks to the Metalseal surface, posters, stickers etc., are a thing of the past – they just won’t stay on the surface.
Metalseal out-performs most anti-graffiti coatings because of its unique hardened silicone composition.
If you’re considering coating vertical cladding, Metalseal is a compelling and economical choice.
