Everest Systems LLC has officially launched a new, high-performance and field-applied topcoat under the Fluorostar brand name for restoring and protecting multiple types of roofing surfaces with long lasting color. Fluorostar is a water-based and ultra-thin film roof coating formulated with Kynar Aquatec®, a world renowned polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) polymer resin produced by Arkema Inc. Fluorostar topcoat is ideal for use on commercial, municipal, or industrial applications over spray foam, TPO, PVC, EPDM, metal, masonry and asphaltic products such as BUR and modified bitumen.
Fluorostar has several features that lengthen the life of a roof including its superior resistance to fading from ultraviolet (UV) radiation and minimizing the absorption of solar energy. The product resists dirt, biological growth, chalking, degradation and maintains its color for 20 years. It also has excellent elongation, flexibility and permeability. When used in conjunction with an Everest acrylic EverCoat system, Fluorostar offers exceptional durability, abrasion resistance and waterproofing properties.
“We have a well-rounded and respected line of high-performance exterior roof coatings and products that last,” said John Linnell, Founder, Everest Systems. “Now, Fluorostar takes us to the next level for commercial building owners with bold and colorful roofs. 20 years of color-fast properties in harsh environments are normally unheard of on a restoration project.”
