Asphalt shingles are prone to dark stains caused by algae
and dirt, as well as steady deterioration losing original color looking drab,
dull and discolored, and erosion of the granules. Asphalt shingles also absorb heat making
rooms below much hotter than many other roofing structures. Although marketed
as “25 year” or “40 year” solutions, the fact is that many of these products
last nowhere near that long and are replaced much sooner, with no reimbursement
from the manufacturer for the “warranty”.
Energy efficiency is a huge problem with asphalt shingles,
because they tend to absorb a majority of the infrared heat from sunlight,
causing huge temperature increases in attic and plenum spaces during air
Relatively new to the USA market, but with over 40 years and
850,000 roof installations of experience in Australia, the UK and around the
world, Nutech Paint provides a solution to both problems – available in 37
standard plus available custom colors.
Nutech’s NXT Cool Coat, combined with their Asphalt Primer, provides 30% to 90% heat reflectance,
self cleaning nanotechnology, and a breathable acrylic surface that
encapsulates the shingle granules, halting deterioration. The Asphalt Primer and two NXT Cool Coat
topcoats “cross link” to provide a single durable, long-lasting surface. With a 12 year warranty, the roof can simply
be recoated when necessary to give the roof a virtually unlimited service life.
Environmentally friendly – water based and low VOC, Nutech
coatings are the perfect choice for roofing tied to rainwater storage systems.
