When it comes to cool roof coatings, you have a wide range of potential products to choose from. That’s why it’s important to compare and contrast before you commit to a particular brand. So, how does APOC 247 Sun-Shield Bright White Elastomeric Roof Coating measure up against Elastek 127 Solar One Plus?
These white acrylic coatings will both help to preserve your roof for years to come. They are both strong and flexible, and they both stand up well against weathering and cracking. They will both help you control your home’s temperature and keep your cooling costs down. When it comes to the specifics, though, which coating stands as superior to the other?
When it comes down to the all-important factor of elasticity, Elastek 127 comes out on top. This coating also scores far better in the scrub test. However, APOC 247 has far superior tensile strength and also does better in terms of bleed-through. The two coatings are almost evenly matched in terms of dirt pickup resistance and white/reflectivity.
When it comes to adhesion to substrate–always an important factor for any roof coating–the results are mixed. APOC 127 is the superior choice if you are working with a high-quality roof substrate. If you are coating a roof with a low-quality substrate, on the other hand, then Elastek 127 will be a better option. In other words, the coating that you choose depends largely on what your priorities for a protective roof coating are.
