Holcim unveils GacoFlex A48 coating for roofing applications

NASHVILLE, Tennessee – Holcim Building Envelope, a division of the Swiss Holcim Group, has launched a new acrylic roof coating that can be applied in a single pass.

According to Holcim, GacoFlex A48 retains high film build and a fast cure time (about eight hours, with rainfastness at 30 minutes), one that can be applied “up to 80 wet mils” or five gallons per square foot.

The material is characterized by “a long roof life, improved optics, strong adhesion, high tensile strength and excellent reflectivity”.

“For over 60 years, Gaco has delivered innovative, market-leading products that help contractors thrive and make their businesses more efficient,” said Carl De Leon, senior vice president of technology at Holcim Building Envelope. “A48 utilizes the latest developments in roof coating technology, resulting in a sustainable product that streamlines the application process.”
