VFI®-3600F Fast Polyurethane Base Coat

VFI®-3600F fast two component urethane basecoat is used as a protective elastomer for impact and strength. A urethane basecoat provides strength and toughness underneath a UV stable topcoat to increase the properties as a system. Using a plural component sprayed system the VFI-3600F provides the ability to recoat same day for a faster more time efficient method. VFI-3600F two component urethane basecoat has zero VOC’s and can be used in areas with strong VOC regulations.

Waterproofing urethane basecoat that provides increased impact resistance with spray application or rolled application.

Systems Used In

Hybrid Polyurethane Foam Roof System

A hybrid silicone and polyurethane roofing system is a premiere strength and energy saving system for a roof. Using our 727 polyurethane 3 PCF roofing foam provides a smooth monolithic layer that is easy to topcoat and gives the building a higher energy efficiency. The foam is then coated with 3600 polyurethane, an extremely durable basecoat, to create a tough urethane layer over the foam to prevent hail damage and leaks. The 3600 can be spray applied or rolled, depending on the speed needed or available equipment. Sealguard® 990 high solids silicone is then applied as the topcoat to provide UV stability and protection against ponding water. Using these three products as a system provides the strengths of each product and removes the weaknesses of each product. This system is best used when a premium roof system is required to stand up to UV degradation and severe hail. These products when sprayed can all be applied same day making this a quick and efficient roofing process that will provide a lasting result.
