Protection for Steel and Asbestos / Fibre Cement Roofs

Over time roofs made from steel corrode and experience wear. Likewise asbestos / fibre cement board roof experience wear and deteriorate. This leads to the formation of holes and the roof will begin to leak rain water. Without remedial work, the roof will eventually fail and need replacing at great expense and inconvenience. The most cost effective way to maintain your steel or asbestos cement roof is to regularly apply a protective coating paint, such as EABASSOC RBC Aluminium.

EABASSOC RBC Aluminium is a one coat, reinforced, protective compound for the maintenance of sloping, corrugated metal and asbestos-cement sheet roofs. It is also suitable for over-coating bituminous membranes and mastic asphalt on flat roofs which should have sufficient slope to prevent standing water. It seals and waterproofs, reduces heat gain and protects against corrosion.

Key Features for Aluminium Protective Roof Coatings

In order to provide lasting protection, the coating must be applied properly. EABASSOC RBC Aluminium has the following features that help ensure easy application and lasting performance:

  • Minimal surface preparation
  • One-pack, ready to use
  • One coat, cheap and easy application
  • Will not flow off high spots and slopes
  • Excellent adhesion, even to old surfaces
  • Flexible, durable and resistant to water
  • Not an emulsion - will not wash off
  • Resistant to UV and high temperature
  • Long life, usually in excess of 10 years
  • Can be recoated
  • Exceeds ASTM D2824 - Standard Specification
    for Aluminum-Pigmented Asphalt Roof Coatings
  • Reflects approximately 75% solar energy

Use and Advantages of EABASSOC RBC Aluminium

EABASSOC RBC Aluminium is a reinforced bitumen waterproofing compound. It produces a membrane with high adhesive strength, but low cohesion. Therefore, unlike elastomeric coatings, it will not delaminate as a single sheet if there is a substrate fault or application error. It is thixotropic, and will smoothly and quickly produce a uniform, durable protective layer. It requires only simple surface preparation, although cracks, holes or open joints should be covered with EABASSOC Flashing Tape. Application onto your roof is either by brush or airless spray. The coverage rate is 0.5 litres/m2. We can provide detailed application instructions.

RBC Aluminium Paint can be be applied using a brush (shown above) or airless spray equipment.

EABASSOC RBC Aluminium protective coating paint is totally resistant to water and so is ideal for use on steel and on fibre cement boards. It seals against water and air, thus preventing corrosion of the former and inhibiting the natural weathering of the latter, which makes such boards thin and porous if they are not protected. It will also seal old, porous asbestos-cement sheets, preventing water penetration. It is not an emulsion, contains no emulsifying agents, and so will not wash off.

EABASSOC RBC Aluminium provides a genuine protective coating and is not merely a decorative finish. Other EABASSOC RBC Compounds are available in a range of colours: Red, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Light Green and Light Blue. All are genuine protective coatings.

EABASSOC RBC Aluminium reflects approximately 75% of solar energy. This helps to keep your factory or warehouse cool in hot sunny weather leading to a better working environment and savings on air conditioning costs.
