What are some of the others doing??
Below are several products that sell their products as systems, Hurricane proof, waterproof & weatherproof..
NXT is an acrylic Paint or Coating for the tiles of a roof, it is not capable of weatherproofing the roof since it is not monolithic
they list some criteria on the 12-year product warranty the applicator has to document
The Nutech roof coating system used listing all products and quantities used, The Job address, clients name and the date the work commenced and finished, A copy or details of Nutech or Supplier Invoices for all materials used, The Applicator must record ambient temperature, surface temperature, relative humidity, estimated wind speed and dew point at regular intervals each day, The Applicator must record the batch numbers of each product used and the location, date and time where each coating was applied, the size of spray tips used to apply each coat and the wet film thickness applied (Nutech wet film thickness gauges available).

Gaco Western Silicone Roof Coating
Gaco Westurn, LLC warrants GacoFlex Coating to be free of defects in materials for 50 years and to meet published physical properties at the time of manufacture. ( So maybe the Company who installs this needs to warranty the product for leaks )
The statement below directly from their:
"WITHSTANDS PERMANENT PONDING WATER. This coating does not degrade under permanent ponding water.""
The performance data has no statement on ponding water on any warranty or label, but it states that it can be used as a water catchment but then it says it's not to be used for edible substrates or long-term portable water sources., but is it nontoxic?
The column where it states 8670 hours Immersion 150 f is (_____________) BLANK
The testing shows that it softens after prolonged submersion.
The tensile strength is 450 to 574 PS1
Elongation 125 to 169%
This product does not have the TAS 106 Pull test.

Nu-tech NXT Cool Zone is a product application warranted to prevent liquid water ingress to the substrate it’s applied to. Nu-tech cannot be held responsible where Nu-tech and any other manufacturer’s products are used on the same job. Therefore only jobs where Nu-tech roof coatings have been exclusively used will be covered by this warranty. The use of roof primers, sealers, or other coatings not manufactured by Nu-tech will void this warranty completely.
We have not been able to find a guarantee/warranty documents from the manufacture for roof leaks, if the roof is monolithic-ally sealed then it’s possible if you are adding their products on top of another brand like our hard coating, (which is designed to make the roof seamless), we have not been able to find any data on a product you can use that Nu-tech manufacturer is used to fill all the spaces between the tiles that would not preclude (see above) the manufacturer’s warranty for their paint Products.
We have not been able to find their performance data sheet (that is not their MSDS) for submersion in water.
*Look for these characteristics on their performance sheets if you can get them which is: elongation, saturation ratio, and PSI strength rating which is indicative of its permeability, "also prevent liquid water ingress to the substrate it's applied to", ok ah that's the surface of the tiles, what about the roof under the tiles where the water runs between the tile onto the paper?

Note: Manufactured Roof Coatings
Note: Check the manufacture's product resistance to ponding water before you purchase, this is the area where the rubber meets the road, the litmus test of the integrity of the coating, and its ability to really weatherproof anything. Some popular "Named Brands" have got into this notch aspect recently and here our findings.

I laid a sealoflex system on some balcony's and also laid the wear coat (granules) by their preferred method of chicken feeding the granules onto the clear glue. After about 2 weeks the wear coat started coming up in patches. After contacting the Sealoflex tech he came down and re-applied the granules over the patch's to find weeks later they came up again. He took samples for lab test's but I've heard nothing. This was almost 2 years ago now and it's just got to court by the homeowner who refuses to pay for the product. The back up from Sealoflex has been crap and so is the wear coat product. Has anyone else had these problems with the wear coat?
