​        BENEFITS OF SILICONE

 

  • The GacoFlex S20 Silicone full system is a monolithic, seam free layer, that is designed to rejuvenate the loss of performance described above – giving decades of waterproof “piece of mind”.
  • S20 is fully immersible in water for 50 years without maintenance, so it is a good fit to circumvent the natural ponding conditions of your current roof structure & substrate.
  • Substantial savings to owner can be shared simply by avoiding the need for tear off, slope to drain redesign and elimination the “repair and repair again” cycle.
  • S20 is non-sacrificial and therefore unaffected by UV rays and can remain underwater for 50 years.
  • By applying the S20 roofing system over your existing Mod Bit membrane, the owner will not have to add the 3.5” of ISO insulation to bring a new Mod Bit layer up to code. 
  • The S20 system satisfies the requirements of section 502.5 Cool roofs (Mandatory) of the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code Amendments updated on September 2, 2011 by the city of Houston. 
  • It offers a 90% reflectance for dramatic energy savings up to 20-30%.
  • From a tax perspective, the GacoFlex S20 Silicone system is fully expansible year one under IRS Title Nine, United States and Texas Building Codes.
  • Elimination of nuisance roof maintenance as S20 is a waterproofing membrane that does not require maintenance like a coating or paint.
  • Fully warrantable NDL Factory labor and material coverage.  The GacoFlex S20 silicone membrane systems is classified as full system and carries conventional factory warranties free of exclusions.
  • Gaco is the industry’s leading formulator since 1955.
  • Gaco has local engineering and technical support in Houston
  • GacoFlex has been evaluated and approved by agencies such as Factory Mutual Insurance, Texas Department of Insurance, Texas and US Building Code, Miami Dade etc.

ELASTOMERIC ACRYLIC COATING BENEFITS


LASTING RESTORATION OR REPAIR KEEPS EXISTING ROOFS OPERATING EFFICIENTLY.  Every year that a building owner can keep the existing roof operating efficiently, keeps money in their pocket. Comprising nearly one-third of operating costs, energy consumption is the single biggest expense to commercial building owners today. Investing in an energy efficient roof can reap substantial savings.

ENERGY EFFICIENT ROOFS  White Mule-Hide A-300 FINISH has been independently tested to EPA guidelines with results of initial solar reflectance values up to 86% and 3 year aged values up to 72%, plus emissivity values of 91%, can reduce surface temperatures on metal roofs by as much as 50°F and interior temperatures by 15°F. 

EXTENDS ROOF LIFECYCLE  Advances in polymer chemistry have resulted in these professional grade products that protect building assets by extending the life of the existing roof.

EASY TO REPAIR  Scrapes or gouges in coated areas are usually repaired simply by cleaning and applying new product to the damaged area where it bonds to the existing coating.

FLEXIBILITY  Thermal shock, settling and seismic action can affect roofs. Mule-Hide Elastomeric Acrylic Coatings remain flexible in hot and cold temperatures (from –15°F to 200°F) to accommodate building movement and will not crack or blister like non-elastomeric paints & coatings.
