The "Affordable White Roof" – Mule-Hide TPO Systems.
- Applicators trust Mule-Hide professional grade coatings for long-term performance and ease of application without the use of fabrics.
- Easy step-by-step application process lets crews finish jobs in record time, water based for simple cleanup.
- VOC compliant with excellent reflectivity and emissivity.
- Truly "elastomeric" - many products (paints, aluminum coatings) are being sold as elastomerics even though they don't actually have the properties of a high performance elastomeric coating.
- Standard System Warranties and Membrane-Only Material Warranties.
White Mule-Hide A-300 FINISH Coating has been independently tested to EPA guidelines with results of initial solar reflectance values of up to 86% and 3-year aged values up to 75%; plus emissivity values of 91%. Reflectivity is the percentage of the sun’s heat a roof keeps off a building, and emissivity is the percentage of heat a roof lets out of a building. Can reduce surface temperatures on metal roofs by as much as 50°F.

IMPORTANT NOTES (Details and information subject to change):
When applying coatings over an existing roof under warranty, the building owner should check with existing roofing system manufacturer, as this coating application may void warranty. In all cases, the existing roofing system must be in sound condition. Mule-Hide is NOT responsible for any defects in the existing roofing system. The information herein should not be considered all-inclusive and should always be accompanied by good application practices. The applicator has sole responsibility for the quality of application of the coating system. Mule-Hide requires proper surface preparation of the existing roofing system. To repair blisters, splits, and other surface defects, Mule-Hide recommends that they be repaired in accordance with the published NRCA Repair Manual for Low-Slope Roofing Systems guidelines prior to application of Mule-Hide Elasomeric Coatings.
Cool temperatures and high humidity retard curing. Do not apply Elastomeric Acrylic Coatings if weather conditions will not permit complete cure. Mule-Hide Coatings are NOT intended for use over graveled surfaces (Spudded Roofs are also NOT acceptable.) Refer to Mule-Hide Coatings Specification Manual for details prior to application.
Mule-Hide recommends ADHESION TESTS PRIOR TO COATING to ensure adhesion and compatibility between the coating and the substrate. Mule-Hide also RECOMMENDS a two (2)-coat application. If finished coverage rates exceed two (2) gallons per square, 2 coats are REQUIRED. Product blisters may occur if coatings are applied too thick in high temperatures.
Energy savings from installation of an ENERGY STAR® Roof Product are climate specific and may vary significantly from building to building. The greatest savings will occur in buildings located in hot and sunny climates that have a high roof surface to building volume ration, and lower levels of attic insulation. For more information about the energy savings you can get from installing an ENERGY STAR® Roof Product on your building contact your roof product manufacturer, roofing contractor, or call 1-888-STAR-YES (1-888-782-7937)
The information herein is based upon data and knowledge considered to be true and accurate and is provided for the applicator's consideration, investigation and verification. However, Mule-Hide products are made without knowledge of your particular roof and/or coatings project and such an application may not be fit for your particular purpose. MULE-HIDE DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, except written warranties attached to Mule-Hide products and written warranties signed by an officer of Mule-Hide.
