Definition - What does Liquid Roof mean?
A liquid roof is the coating material used to waterproof various roof types. Its liquid state before curing allows it to penetrate and effectively seal welds, seams and joints. One coat application of this chemically-cured, one- or two-component liquid roof is durable enough to provide roofs with long-term protection that will prolong their useful life without repairs.
Liquid roof is easy to apply with a brush, roller or sprayer on hot and cold surfaces. It is compatible with concrete, metals, asbestos and other materials used on pitched and flat roofs.
Corrosionpedia explains Liquid Roof
Liquid roof has made it easier, safer and more cost-effective to waterproof various roof types. Waterproofing protects the roof’s wide surface, welds, seams, joints and other components from corrosion and other forms of deterioration. Some brands claim that the durability of their liquid roof can last for up to 25 years without reapplication.
Liquid roof is cost effective for refurbishments because it can be applied over old surface coatings and works at temperatures as low as -5 °C and as high as 149 °C (23°F to 300°F).
Liquid roof is the liquid version of Ethylene-Propylene-Diene-Monomer (EPDM) rubber sheet.
