  • Specified in confidence by surveyors and property managers for over 20 years.

The Problem

Steel profiled roofing will last indefinitely providing the original factory applied coating is correctly maintained and re-coated as it reaches its normal expected re-paint schedule. Over time, the factory applied coatings will start to deteriorate. The rate of this deterioration is determined largely by location, orientation and design. Research has shown that the dominant factor for PVC Plastisol and PVF2 type coatings is UV radiation. Re-coating the roof will extend the life and sustainability of the building. If the reinstatement of the original coating is neglected, this could result in much more costly complete roof replacement.

Why Delcote Architectural Coating?

DELCOTE® Architectural Coating is a single component, silicone for the re-painting and weatherproofing of existing PVC, Pvf2 and similar coated metal roofing & cladding which will provide protection equal or better than the original product. Used in conjunction with SEAMSIL® edge and overlap treatment the coating system offers a seamless solution to the long-term protection of most existing metal roof types.

Delcote is an inorganic (mineral-based) coating with outstanding resistance to weathering from UV, rain, snow and temperature extremes to retain high movement accommodation, flexibility and adhesion without cracking or peeling.
