Advantage Graphene is the latest system in the Advantage portfolio, and a welcome new addition to the Cladding Coatings’ product range.
Advantage, a hybrid system for industrial and commercial roof refurbishment, is particularly effective on metal roofs. Therefore, it’s one we’ve come to know and trust here at Cladding Coatings to deliver reliable results.
Advantage Graphene has been developed with industry-leading anti-corrosion properties designed for metal roofs. It is designed to target roof rust whilst providing unrivalled corrosion protection. Solvent, isocyanate and VOC free, it has no strong vapours and has been developed without the harmful chemicals that can be found in competitor systems. As such, it is safe for use whatever your building’s purpose.
Graphene forms an almost completely impenetrable barrier. This means water, debris or any other small molecule finds it almost impossible to bypass the graphene, providing ultimate building protection. The addition of graphene also means that the Advantage coating systems are now more robust than ever before. Graphene is 200 times stronger than steel, despite being the thinnest material known to exist. It is lightweight, meaning there’s minimal additional weight on your roof once it has been applied. It is also versatile – its application temperature ranges from 3 to 60°C – and can be applied in damp conditions, maintaining breathability with high weather, UV and impact resistance.
In addition, Advantage Graphene needs only one coat application after preparation, which in turn results in minimal traffic on your roof. There is no shrinkage on curing, it has a flexible membrane and is also recoatable, preventing costly replacement work being necessary.
The system has been developed by Alltimes Coatings, this time in collaboration with Applied Graphene Material (AGM) Ltd. who specialise in adapting graphene for dispersion into different materials. AGM manufacture graphene from sustainable sources, using processes to ensure their graphene is almost completely free of graphitic impurities
Once again, we are delighted to be working with a system created by Alltimes Coatings, one of the industry’s leading coating manufacturers. This gives our customers continued peace of mind in the quality of the systems we choose and the strength of our supplier partnerships. Furthermore, Advantage Graphene comes with a 30-year guarantee and Latent Defect Insurance from Lloyds, giving you complete assurance in the longevity of your building facade.
Advantage Graphene has undergone rigorous testing to ISO:9227. As such, it is now an approved enhanced metal roof coating with industry-leading resistance to corrosion.
