Hot applied coatings can be single component asphalt, or combinations of asphalt and polymers to modify the specific physical properties. All hot applied systems have their inherent dangers, such as risk of fire and personal injury – concerns that have motivated many government agencies to restrict their use.
Cold applied coatings use either solvents or water [emulsions] to enable fluidity and application at ambient temperature. Unlike our products, coatings using solvents release harmful VOCs into the environment and can be hazardous in the workplace.
Consequently, the industry is moving aggressively to replace all solvent-based products. Naturaseal has an outstanding range of asphalt waterproof coatings based on water-borne technology that Naturaseal believes positions it in the forefront of this trend and advancing industry.
