What is EPDM and Modified Bitumen Recoating?
A complete coating system designed to deliver improved reflectivity and waterproofing to aged modified systems and aged mechanically-fastened and fully adhered EPDM membrane roofing systems. The membrane is cleaned, primed and all seams reinforced using fabric embedded acrylic elastomeric roof coatings. The finish coat provides excellent waterproofing and cools the roofing surface, reducing the damaging effects of thermal shock.
What can it do for you?
Rejuvenates the life of your existing roofing membrane.
Provides you with peace of mind for years.
Lowers the temperature of your roof by as much as 30 degrees, saving you cooling costs.
Provides, on average, a 4 to 7 year return on investment.
EPDM Coating System: A Quality, Economical Solution for Your Aged EPDM Roof
The EPDM Coating System is a three-step system using the new WAC II roofing surface cleaner, the new Conklin Tack Coat Primer and Conklin's proven Rapid Roof III® top coat. These products, used together as a system, provide an excellent coating to aged EPDM membranes for a highly reflective, energy-saving durable roof.

Who Can Afford to Take Chances?
The Conklin system is a proven problem solver which saves you money.
Many times when a roof membrane starts to fail, there are only two options. You can either do nothing and live with the leaks or tear the old roof off and replace it. Conklin's system gives you another option. Now you can coat the existing membrane and enjoy the benefits of reduced energy bills, a longer-lasting roof, and the ability to apply the new membrane without major disruptions to your business. All at a less expensive price than reroofing! In addition, it is completely sustainable - meaning you can continue to recoat the acrylic coating, as needed, for years and years to come!
The Conklin EPDM Coating System provides a reflective coating of Rapid Roof III top coat over an existing EPDM roof membrane.
The light-colored coating reflects the majority of the sun's energy away from the roof surface, keeping the roof membrane and the workspace underneath cooler, using less energy to keep cool. The average EPDM roof reflects five to six percent of the solar energy away from the surface, while Rapid Roof III reflects 85 percent of the sun's energy away from the roof's surface. It is not unusual for a cool roof to lower roof top temperatures by 20 to 30 degrees!
Extending Your Roof's Life
EPDM roof membranes have long suffered from premature degradation due to exposure to the elements.
Dark surfaces absorb large amounts of heat from the sun, causing the membrane to expand and contract to extreme levels. Over time, this movement causes the membrane to shrink, increasing the possibility for seam leakage. The Conklin coating system protects the existing membrane with a finish coat that reflects the sun's harmful rays away from the surface and effectively secures the seams of the membrane for a watertight seal. No longer exposed to the majority of the sun's rays, the EPDM membrane will have a much longer life span. Recoats of Rapid Roof III can be applied as necessary to add further longevity to the life of the roof.
