Berger Paints Bangladesh Ltd. (BPBL) has recently introduced to the market its advanced new product – ‘Flexible Roofing Compound.’ It is an excellent coating for roofs that seals and stops penetration of moisture from the exterior surface and keeps the roof protected.
Berger Flexible Roofing Compound contains specially formulated acrylic-based dry film & Recron® modified polyester hollow fibres, which can stretch to an impressive extent to provide a crack-free surface on the roof. It also helps to keep the roof cool during summer. This new product has excellent TSR (Total Solar Reflectance), as it is capable of reflecting shade-wise 75% to 84% of solar energy, which helps to reduce the surface temperature up to 3° Celsius compared to conventional coatings. The excellent levelling, opacity, film-flexibility, dust resistance, alkali and efflorescence resistance, water repellency, and anti-algal and anti-carbonation properties of the Flexible Roofing Compound makes it a first-choice for those who want nothing but the best for their homes.
