What is a Protective Industrial Roof Coating?

Profiled metal roof sheets are manufactured with a number of protective layers, including a zinc alloy, primer and top coat. However, when cut to fit the size of any bespoke industrial roof, the edge can be left exposed to the elements. Over time, this can result in corrosion along the cut edge where protective layers are penetrated by standing water and UV exposure, and top coats begin to peel away.

Not only can this result in costly damage due to leaks and breakage, but the discoloration and wear can also impact the aesthetic appeal of the commercial unit. Therefore, a protective roof coating is necessary in order to treat and repair any corrosion and to prevent further damage.

For both contractors and surveyors, cut edge corrosion can present a number of obstacles to a project, including health and safety and timeline delays. Girosil® RC ULTRA has been designed to overcome them all as an effective, long-term protective roof coating solution that can be applied in wet conditions. The solution addresses both the top and reverse sides of a cut edge, using laminar flake technology that seals and bonds with corrosion and forms a tough elastic coating to repair and protect the metal roof for up to 20 years.
