With Conklin’s innovative roof recoating systems, you can actually extend the life of your existing EPDM, PVC, TPO, CSPE or Modified Bitumen membranes and save on energy costs at the same time. These systems are an effective and economical alternative to a complete tear off or re-roofing project.
The Membrane Recoating Systems consist of a three step process: WAC II roofing surface cleaner, Conklin Tack Coat surface primer and Conklin’s proven Rapid Roof® III reflective top coat. Used together as a system, these products allow you to fix leaks in your existing membrane roofs instead of replacing them. In fact, Conklin coating systems are sustainable indefinitely with periodic recoats.
The light colored coating of Rapid Roof III top coat reflects 84 percent of the sun’s energy from your membrane roof, compared to only five to seven percent of typical dark-colored roofs. The Conklin Membrane Recoating Systems extend the life of your roof by shielding it from those harmful rays resulting in less shrinkage, reduced ultraviolet degradation and thus fewer leaks. The high reflectivity also lowers the temperature of your roof by as much as 30-50 degrees, which means less money spent cooling your building!
Conklin’s WAC II high-strength roofing surface cleaner is an excellent product for most roof cleaning applications. WAC II effectively prepares aged EPDM and Modified Bitumen membranes prior to applying the Conklin EPDM or Modified Bitumen Recoating Systems.
Conklin Tack Coat promotes adhesion between properly cleaned EPDM and Modified Bitumen roofing membranes and Conklin’s Rapid Roof III 100 percent acrylic elastomeric roof coating. When used on aged EPDM and Modified Bitumen roofs cleaned with WAC II roof cleaner, Tack Coat effectively prepares the membrane to receive the highly reflective, energy-saving finish coat.

Rapid Roof III cures to a tack-free, dirt-resistant finish. In addition to white, Rapid Roof III is also available in light gray, light blue and light tan.
