Inland Coatings announced the release of the spray-grade Pro Metal Series, a complete spray-applied restoration system for metal roofs. The Pro Metal Series is an optimized solution for coating metal roofs that pairs RC 2250SG Premium Rubber Seam Compound (Spray Grade) with RC 2016 One Pass Rubber Roof Coating. The single-pass system allows skilled commercial roofing companies to repair and restore metal roofs at a significantly lower cost and a better profit margin than a complete roof replacement. 

The Pro Metal Series is an innovative solution that uses only spray-grade products. The benefit it brings is how quickly the coating can be applied by a crew of one or two, instead of the traditional crew of four to six. 

“We’re focused on saving contractors time and money, and reformulating our brush-on seam compound is one way we’ve done that,” says Coridan McGinley, president of Inland Coatings. “Now, the spray application is exponentially faster. With labor so hard to come by, any way contractors can do more with a smaller crew is monumental.”

The first step of the system is the seam and penetration compound, RC 2250SG. The newly-reformulated compound can be applied using the same spray rig as other aspects of the project. Ideal for sealing curbs, penetrations, fasteners, and seams, RC 2250SG also reduces the need for three-coursing, in turn, reducing application time and the amount of materials needed. RC 2250SG is available in gallon cans, five-gallon buckets and a 55-gallon drum and can also be used as a standalone product.

The seam compound is followed by RC 2016 One Pass, a spray-applied field coat. This coating covers the entirety of the roof to provide waterproofing and ultraviolet resistance, eliminating problematic leaks and enabling energy savings. Other coatings require a three-pass system (three steps), but RC 2016 One Pass has a base coat and top coat built in, meaning it only requires one pass. 

Formulated with corrosion inhibitor, mildewcide, primer, and UV protectant, RC 2016 One Pass uses a smaller amount of product than other coatings to restore a roof. This reduces the number of days on-site, allowing contractors to complete the restoration faster and move on to the next rubber roof coating project.
