Garland® has introduced its first ever fluid-applied seamless membrane, LiquiTec™, which forms a virtually impenetrable surface over aged modified bitumen, metal, and single-ply roof systems, adding years of waterproofing protection. Unlike common aromatic polyurethane coatings that chalk and degrade when exposed to UV, LiquiTec is an aliphatic polyurea coating system with a tightly bonded molecular structure that provides strength and durability similar to truck bed liners. LiquiTec is built to protect roof surfaces from damage caused by hail, foot traffic, wind scour, and other impact.
LiquiTec fully and partially reinforced systems exhibit high tensile strength and remain flexible at temperatures down to -60°F, which helps keep the coating from cracking or becoming brittle to ensure a complete watertight seal and long-term waterproofing protection. In addition to its strength, LiquiTec contains zero VOCs and is low odor to allow roof work to be completed with minimal or no disruption at sensitive locations like schools, hospitals, and other structures where people are present.
This two-component product also undergoes a chemical cure process, rather than a moisture cure, so it cures quickly and with less disruption from weather, allowing for faster installation and waterproofing protection. Its unique formulation, strength, and flexibility provides the right amount of toughness combined with reliable waterproofing protection.
