Garland Canada Presents the Industry’s First Antimicrobial Roof Coating for Healthcare and Other Occupant-Sensitive Environments
Date:9/6/2013

Canada (PRWEB) September 06, 2013

Garland’s innovative Clear-Shield Rx™ technology is a clear-acrylic, non-toxic, rooftop coating designed to provide at least twelve months of antimicrobial protection. It resists bacterial and fungal growth on the applied surface, reducing the rate at which the surface will discolour or deteriorate, as well as decreasing the quantity of roof top contaminants entering air intakes. Its ability to improve indoor air quality makes Clear-Shield Rx coating an ideal solution for healthcare, schools, and other environments where occupant comfort is paramount.

Microorganisms on a rooftop can cause many problems, contaminating indoor air quality and causing foul odours. They can also discolour, corrode, and shorten the service life of a roof. Clear-Shield Rx coating provides a transparent and durable antimicrobial film that can be applied to various roof systems, including gravel-surfaced modified bitumen, smooth-surfaced modified bitumen, and single ply roofing. Its weatherable acrylic resin base increases the service life of the applied surface. Once applied, the bonded antimicrobial film is non-leaching, nonvolatile, odour-free and colourless. It produces virtually no chemical vapours. It is safe for use around people, animals, and plants and can be easily applied with rollers or a pump spray.

According to Charbel Boulos, P.Eng, president of Garland Canada Inc, “Clear-Shield Rx is designed to adhere to a multitude of roofing surfaces and finishes. The product is a robust exterior-grade emulsion polymer. Its water-based, low-odour formulation contains only trace amounts of VOC, so there are no harsh odours to disrupt building occupants during application. In addition to helping preserve rooftop appearance and durability, our laboratory research has shown that this coating can significantly reduce surface biological growth, potentially improving the quality of air being drawn into facilities by reducing rooftop contamination.”

Clear-Shield Rx coating can be used on most non-metal rooftops that are not subject to ponding conditions. Garland makes no claim, nor should any be inferred, that this product is particularly intended to neutralize or control microorganisms directly or indirectly infectious or pathogenic to humans or animals. Its protective properties are designed specifically to reduce the types of bacterial growth most likely to discolour and deteriorate rooftops made of organic materials, thereby improving interior air quality in relation to those types of bacteria.
