Solex is a white, environmentally friendly, reflective roof coating formulated from a water-based, fluoropolymer-acrylic resin. Solex contains a unique Kynar Aquatec® water-based PVDF resin to provide extended protection from exposure to water, humidity, temperature extremes, UV, and atmospheric pollutants. Once cured, Solex preserves asphaltic or metal roof surfaces and reduces under-roof temperatures to create a more pleasant interior work environment that is less costly to maintain. Solex meets and exceeds all CRRC and Title 24 standards requirements and contributes to LEED® points.
|Solex is designed for application by spray. Before use, stir the product. Do not thin. Asphaltic Surfaces Apply 1-1.5 gal./100 sq. ft. (0.41 – 0.61 l/m2) of Pyramic® or Pyramic Base Coat as a base coat. Follow with Solex, spray-applied at a rate of a 0.5 gal./100 sq. ft. (0.20 l/m2). Metal Surfaces Apply 0.5 gal./100 sq. ft. (0.20 l/m 2) of Rust-Go ™ or Rust-Go VOC Primer. Then apply 0.5 gal./100 sq. ft. (0.20 l/m 2) of Rust-Go VOC Top Coat. Follow with Solex, spray-applied at a rate of a 0.5 gal./100 sq. ft. (0.20 l/m2).

Solex contains Kynar Aquatec resin which picks up very little dirt and allows the Solex coating to stay white longer with proper roof slope and drainage. The Kynar Aquatec resin allows the coating to achieve total solar reflectance values of 0.90 and retain that level for many years.
Typical dark-colored built-up roofs can absorb over 70% of the solar energy that reaches them, creating temperatures over 180°F (82.2°C). Studies confirm that Solex can reduce roof temperatures by 50° to 80°F (10° to 26.7°C) and save significant amounts of cooling energy during the summer months.
Solex is a flexible white finish that reflects the sun’s ultraviolet rays and reduces the damaging effects allowing your roof system to last longer. Over time, UV light degrades the chemical structure of a roofing membrane, which then causes chalking, cracking, shrinking, loss of flexibility, and surface erosion. Solex’s high-performance acrylic polymers give added impact strength, flexibility, adhesion, and color retention to aged roofing systems.
