Are you trying to decide between two coating products? Doing a side-by-side comparison of two roof coatings can help you figure out which product will be better-suited to your building’s particular needs. Let’s say you’re making a decision between SW Paints Mastic and APOC 252 SUNWHITE Premium White Architectural Grade Elastomeric Coating. Which of these two products is a better fit for your roof?
SW Paints Mastic does stand out in some key areas. It is superior in terms of bleed-through, most notably, and it also adheres better to roofs with low-quality substrates. Thus, if you’re dealing with a roof that has a poor substrate, then SW Paints Mastic is probably the preferable choice.
In most other areas, however, APOC 252 is the better product. It scores better in coating roofs that have high-quality substrates than SW Paints Mastic, and it also has superior scores in dirt pickup resistance, white/reflectivity, and the scrub test. In terms of all-around strength, this coating is the clear victor.
Most importantly, APOC 252 scores better in both elasticity and tensile strength, perhaps the two most critical factors for the durability of a roof coating. As a result, if you have a good-substrate roof that you would like to protect, APOC 252 is most likely your best bet. The difference between these two products is clear enough that it demonstrates why doing such comparisons is so important for consumers.
