Berger Paints Bangladesh Ltd. (BPBL) recently introduced its new Flexible Roofing Compound in the market.
It is an excellent coating for roofs which seals and stops penetration of moisture from exterior surfaces and keeps the roof protected, said a press release.
Berger Flexible Roofing Compound contains specially formulated acrylic-based dry film and Recron® modified polyester hollow fibers, which can stretch to an impressive extent to provide a crack-free surface on the roof.
With excellent Total Solar Reflectance (TSR), it is capable of reflecting 75-84% of solar energy, which helps to reduce the surface temperature by up to 3° Celsius compared to conventional coatings.
The leveling, opacity, film-flexibility, dust resistance, alkali and efflorescence resistance, water repellent, anti-algal, and anti-carbonation properties make the Flexible Roofing Compound ideal for roof sealing.
“As the surfaces of roofs are subjected to harsh weather conditions and wear and tear of movement, traditional wall coatings are not recommended for application on roofs,” said Md. Mohsin Habib Chowdhury, senior general manager of Sales and Marketing, Berger.
“Berger has been developing various paint solutions for every kind of surface, and Berger Flexible Roofing Compound came as a result of such extensive and dedicated research,” he added.
The product is certified by multiple standardization authorities. Its initial Solar Reflectance and Thermal Emittance were tested by Specialist Testing and Technical Service (STATS) Singapore. Tests found its Emittance as 0.90, Solar Reflectance as 84%, and Solar Absorptance as 16%, all of which validate the product’s ability to reduce surface temperature.
It is certified by TÜV Rheinland, Bangladesh to be free of carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic to reproduction (CMR) substances, formaldehyde, and heavy metals.
The compound is a hygiene coating with a low VOC content that is tested to kill 99.9% microbial growth, ensuring a healthy environment for residents.
Flexible Roofing Compound is available in the market in 3.64L packs in four different colours white, grey, tile red, and green.
