What is Ames® Maximum-Stretch® Liquid Rubber Roof Coating?
Ames® Maximum-Stretch® is a white, elastomeric, acrylic roof coating and sealant with added high-performance rubber technology. With 650% elongation, this reflective topcoat has the highest elasticity on the market today. This important feature allows it to expand and contract with the roof.
Maximum-Stretch helps to maintain and prolong the life of existing roofs and avoid expensive tear-offs. It is designed for low-slope roof maintenance on metal, built-up roofing, rolled roofing, modified bitumen, cement, EPDM, wood and more. The lasting, energy-saving benefits of bright white Maximum-Stretch keep roofs naturally cooler during hot summer months and result in lower air conditioning costs.
Maximum-Stretch is 88% reflective of the sun’s powerful UV and infrared rays and helps protect roofs from deterioration. Easily applied, it creates a uniform, seamless surface that remains flexible at low temperatures without becoming brittle, cracking or peeling. Maximum-Stretch may be used as a stand-alone waterproof roof coating and sealant, or as a topcoat in our multi-layer Roof Coating System, to maintain and revitalize very aged and deteriorated roofs. Widely recognized as the premium elastomeric roof coating on the market today, Maximum-Stretch is eco-friendly, cleans up easily with water and comes with a 12-year warranty on metal roofs.
Maximum-Stretch comes ready-mixed and is easy to apply, with little or no stirring required. Apply Maximum-Stretch with a roller, squeegee, broom or commercial airless sprayer. For maximum waterproofing, apply Maximum-Stretch in a uniform and seamless fashion with adequate dry mil thickness. Premium, commercial-quality Maximum-Stretch resists mold and mildew, is non-toxic, environmentally friendly and low-odor, and cleans up with water before drying.
