Created by mixing asphalt with water using a process called emulsification, asphalt emulsion is a cold-applied liquid roofing membrane that can meet the roofing demands of the 21st century. It slows the aging process and breathes new life into old roofs, while eliminating the hazard of roofing kettles with temperatures in excess of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. That means no fire, limited fumes and odors and no skin burns.
But asphalt emulsion coatings have other advantages, including:
A Great Value: Asphalt emulsion is an economical coating for resurfacing asphalt and composition roofs, eliminating the need to tear-off an old roof and start from scratch. It can also serve as a waterproofing primer and a protective surface for metal roofing.
Durable: Highly flexible to accommodate temperature-related expansion and contraction of a roof system, asphalt emulsion coatings can also endure a wide range of challenging temperatures, weather conditions and abrasive industrial atmospheres.
Cool Roof: Asphalt emulsion can play a part in making a cool roof by acting as a base for a reflective coating.
Easy Application: All you need is a sprayer, brush or roller.
