Why you should choose a wet-on-wet system

  • 20th February 2020

When looking for a product to protect roofs with weathered, worn or damaged substrates, it is important to choose a coating that can be applied as a wet-on-wet system. Wet-on-wet systems not only save time as there’s no wait time between the first application of resin drying and the final layer being installed, but they are also cost-effective as they can be applied in a single operation meaning labour costs for your roofing project are dramatically reduced. 

Elastaseal Z is a leading wet-on-wet product available in 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 year systems which uses innovative technology to deliver results in just 2 coats and provide a seamless, waterproof and heat-resistant finish. This solution offers a safer, more user-friendly experience for sites where fumes can be hazardous, such as schools, pharmaceutical and food/beverage manufacturing sites, hospitals, commercial offices and retail units.

 

 

During the quick and simple application process, a coating is applied directly onto the roof and the reinforcement matting is embedded before the system is then topped up with more coating.

When applied as a wet-on-wet system, application issues and roof failures associated with multiple coatings and uneven layer thickness are also eliminated, delivering a lower risk installation.
