TM-White is a product much like the white stripping material used on pavements for controlling traffic. Much of this is still in use after many years of traffic crossing it. In fact, there is no good way to remove it. The city and state employees normally paint tar over it if traffic patterns are changed.
TM-White with age becomes more wear-resistant and waterproof. TM-White could not be a protective coating against large hail. It is impossible to engineer a coating against large hailstones.
A coating of TM-White over a previously black or colored roof can reduce air conditioning costs as much as 20%.
We have observed black roofs that had the TM-White applied next to the black tar paper and tar. A person could lay his face on the white where he could not bear to hold his hand on the black section. This was on a day of 80° or more temperature.
Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the black roof absorbs so much that given enough time this absorbed heat will destroy the paper, tar, and decking materials. The interior of the building has to contain this heat. More insulations are required under the roofing to prevent this heat from raising the temperature in the rooms below.
A TM-White roof will, of course, reflect the sun’s heat back and the roofing materials will not be undergoing this terrific heat. The attic or space between ceiling and roof will never be nearly so hot. A small amount of insulating materials above the ceiling will do better than the large amounts that are required for black roofs.
TM-White can be applied by anyone. The best application is with a wide paint brush. This material flows and levels as well as the best house paint. There is just the right amount of solvent in TM-White so that it will merge or fuse with the tar on built-up roofs or with the asphalt in composition shingles.
The better application is two coats because you are adding thickness to the cover. At the low price of TM-White, a two-coat job is very reasonable. TM-White will normally dry to touch within thirty minutes to one hour.
Reports that roofs with considerable pits and signs of erosion which were leaking in numerous places, were stopped and a very attractive roof was obtained. Throughout our tests we were able to cover 100 square feet or better of area on tar-paper roofs.
The coverage may be somewhat less on composition shingles because in brushing the joint cracks and the lower edges of the shingles will have a thicker deposit of TM-White.
Note this very thick viscous material. Normal paint weighs approximately 7 lbs. Our TM White weighs 13 lbs. per gallon. This roof coating is NOT a paint. It is a very heavy bodied material with an excellent adhesion factor to any tar or asphalt base product. The white is a tremendous advantage for reflecting heat.
Not a Paint! — This heavy bodied snow white coating has been especially formulated for all types of metal roofs, corrugated, V-crimp, flat sheet etc. There is over 11,000 sq. feet of this coating on the five metal buildings at the Virden Perma-Bilt premises. It was put on in 1976. We sell hundreds of gallons of this metal roof coating a year, by just having the customer evaluate the roofs when they are at the plant! There is no fading or cracking on any of the metal roofs. “Come See”! Excellent adhesion, no primer required. Apply generously on the lap seam, joints, nail or bolt heads for definite waterproofing! Snow white in color, (25% cooler because of the white color, does not fade). The cohesion to itself is excellent in case of hail damage. Simply cover the damaged area and because of its thickness, you cannot tell where the hailstone hit! One five gallon can should cover 350 sq. feet with two coats. Have your metal roofs be dry and rust proof with our inexpensive coating. It literally cements the sheet metal down on the roof along with the nail or bolt head. Available in one and five gallon cans. When all else fails fix it and forget it with Perma-Bilt.
Ideal for Every Metal Roof, Barn, Storage Shed, Mobile Home, Dwelling, etc.
It’s the age-old story, everyone complains about the tar, roof paste, cold patch, etc., not doing the job when applied on a person’s roof to stop leaks, or insure against leaking! 99% of the failures are due to no elasticity and poor adhesion.
Now, Virden Perma-Bilt Company has solved these problems! After developing and selling Virden’s famous T.M. White Roof Coating, for over 25 years, they have developed and perfected, after 3 years of testing in the field, a flexible elastomeric mastic paste that retains its flexibility, its adhesion, is excellent to all asphalt and tar roof products, composition shingles, rolled composition, rolled tar paper, wood, metal flashing, brick, etc.
This thixotropic paste is used to bridge wide cracks, gaps. Apply on roof edges, (rainwater is notorious for being blown in these roof edges, traveling many feet to a leak point). Applying roof mastic paste on the roof edge works wonders! Afterward, sealing the roof area with Virden Perma-Bilt’s famous T.M. White Roof Coating will ensure years of maintenance free roof problems.
