DO YOU WANT HARSH CHEMICALS AROUND YOUR BUILDING?
One of the most significant, and often overlooked, benefits of silicone as a roof coating is that it is formulated to contain extremely low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Like many things humans do, it took us a while to learn that VOCs were damaging to the environment and ourselves. We worked with materials that contained VOCs without knowing that they could harm us and the environment around us. Now that we are learning more about VOCs and their damaging effects, regulations have been put in place to protect ourselves, our workers, and our environment.
What Does Low VOC Look Like?
Many silicone roof coatings can have a high VOC count and still be legal, but maybe not safe. Our VOC count is less than 50 in our high solids silicone roof coating, which is well below the legal standard for any state and is well below any expected risk threshold. Our low VOC formula means your workers are safe while installing, passersby are safe, and the environment is safe.
We have worked extremely hard to develop a formula that is both effective, cost-efficient, and still safe for everyone involved. That is why we are so proud to have a material that has among the lowest VOC rating of any roofing material on the market. It’s a rare feat to have such an effective product that is also extremely safe, so we are extremely proud of our advanced formula and the work that it took to create such a great product.
Volatile Organic Compounds are widely seen as dangerous, yet many roofing materials still contain high volumes of these compounds. Our silicone is specially formulated to contain low VOC amounts, which makes it safer to install, to live and work under, and better for the environment around the buildings it is installed on.
