DuROCK recently launched TioCoat, a high-strength elastomeric coating that provides 89% reflectivity of solar radiation which significantly reduces the buildings energy requirements and helps combat Heat Island Effect. TioCoat's tough white finish resists abrasion, biological growth, dirt & extreme weather conditions. This versatile roofing system can be applied on a variety of roofs such as single ply, metal, asphalt or concrete. The TioCoat elatomeric roof coating system creates a uniform, seamless surface that remains flexible even at extreme temperatures, resulting in a longer roof cycle.
