ASTM Specs for Acrylic Roof Coating
The industry has an established, comprehensive standard that allows all products marketed as "Elastomeric Acrylic Roof Coatings" to be compared against a battery of specific tests.
The specification, ASTM D-6083, involves such tests as adhesion, viscosity, solids by weight and volume, accelerated weathering, elongation, tensile strength, fungus resistance, water swelling, permeance, and low temperature flexibility.
In order to be ASTM certified as an elastomeric acrylic roof coating, the product must meet or exceed the requirements for all of the above tests.
One of the first products to receive the certification, Sunlife Roofing Compound was certified on December 1, 1997.For details on the Technical Specifications for Sunlife Roofing Compound, see
