Metacrylics uses the finest grade of acrylic resin available for roofing and decks, then adds the highest grade Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) available, along with other ingredients, mixing until perfect. The Acrylic White has a 98.9% luminous reflectance. No water or plasticizers* are added to the product, except to facilitate or re-emulsify some of the ingredients. Metacrylics reinforcing stitchbond polyester fabric (manufactured by Titex, Inc.) is simply the best fabric field-tested. Laboratory tests of 12 different fabrics revealed its superiority, when used with Metacrylics Acrylics, regardless of price. *Plasticizer: A product that artificially induces and increases the rubber-like characteristics in a product, conversely affecting the longevity and weathering characteristics (resistance to UV) of the elastomeric product. In short, by adding a plasticizer to the product, the life of the product is substantially shortened in a trade off for the increased flexibility of the product.
Economical And Renewable
Metacrylics costs more for the initial roof installation in comparison to more traditional roofing products, but when considering the long term life cost cycle, the pricing of Metacrylics is much less than other quality roofing products because the warranty has minimal costs to renew. When it’s time to renew, the re-application cost is minimal, only the Primer and Acrylic Color coats are applied. The acrylic BASE & POLYESTER are permanent and virtually unaffected by time, and are simply re-coated again, and again…
Many customers consider this to be the best value in the roofing industry due to reduced maintenance costs with the renewable lifetime warranty and energy savings. The owner of a 22,000 s.f. building had a savings of $697.32 during the summer months – the equivalent of 3 inches or more of insulation, or an R-20 rating.
