FLEXIBLE AND DURABLE
Metacrylics secret is simple. We start with the finest grade of
acrylic resin available for roofing and decks, then add the highest
grade Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) available, along with
other ingredients. Then, slowly mixed for hours until perfect. That's
why our Acrylic White has a 98.9% luminous reflectance. Most of
our competitors don't even display their % reflectance on their
literature or labels!
No water or plasticizers* are added to our products, except to
facilitate or re-emulsify some of the ingredients. We don't trade-off
quality by artificially enhancing our products' flexibility or thin
down our products with water. Our products last two to three times
longer than other roof coating products.
Metacrylics reinforcing stitchbond polyester fabric (manufactured
by Titex, Inc.) is simply the best fabric we've ever field-tested.
Laboratory tests of 12 different fabrics revealed its superiority,
when used with Metacrylics Acrylics, regardless of price.
*Plasticizer: A product that artificially induces and increases
the rubber-like characteristics in a product, conversely affecting
the longevity and weathering characteristics (resistance to UV)
of the elastomeric product. In short, by adding a plasticizer to
the product, the life of the product is substantially shorten in
a trade off for the increased flexibility of the product.
