DELCOTE® HPG is an elastomeric membrane, with vapour breathable properties suitable for application as a protective weatherproofing coating to completely coat the gutter surface. It has excellent elastic and flexible properties to withstand normal surface movements and is unaffected by UV or extremes of weather and temperature. UV makes coatings hard and brittle, limiting their ability to expand and contract resulting in loss of adhesion. DELCOTE® is completely and naturally resistant to sunlight and UV radiation, ensuring enduring flexibility and adhesion. DELCOTE® repels surface water promoting flow and discouraging the formation of ponding and standing water.
The effectiveness of the guttering is not dependent on a fixed rate of deterioration like most roofing and cladding solutions. Rather, the effectiveness and longevity can be determined by a range of factors such as debris, plant residue, temperature changes, and impacts. DELCOTE ® HPG is liquid applied silicone membrane applied to the gutter to provide a coating fit for the majority of commercial gutter and rainwater systems, whether metal, concrete or asbestos. It provides a layer of protection against clogging debris, surface movements, UV rays, and changing temperatures.
Tritec is an approved contractor with a close relationship with the leading manufacturers of coating systems that have carried out hundreds of projects for commercial clients. Let us offer you our independent advice and help you see if DELCOTE ® HPG is the right choice for you.
Commercial and industrial guttering can oftentimes be neglected, which leads to issues such as leaks, blockages, and corrosion. These problems can extend to the interior of the building once guttering starts to overflow. A thorough cleaning of the gutter will help and is part of our process. However, to stop the repeated need for frequent cleanings the right coating has to be applied.
DELCOTE ® HPG is applied to existing guttering systems without any need for priming. We begin by making sure existing surfaces are suitable for coating with a quick adhesion test. Then we ensure the surface is clean, dry, and free of corrosion as well as any previous coating residue. We apply in conjunction with Seamsil® 300 gutter joint repair if needed to make sure the guttering. Once that’s done, the application of DELCOTE ® HPG is a straightforward process for our experienced contractors, using two coats to maximize coverage and thickness while keeping its breathability and elastic properties.
All gutters need the protection of a tough coating and choosing the right product for a cover, whether it’s new or a replacement, can dramatically impact its reliability. With a life expectancy of over twenty years proven through repeated use, DELCOTE ® HPG is one of the most reliable products on the market. Where it stands apart, however, is in its complete resistance to sunlight and UV rays. Both factors can alter coatings over time, making them hard and brittle which can result in a lot of adhesion between the coating and guttering. That means less effective protection. The resistance to those elements keeps the coating flexible, adhesive and enduring. With it, your gutters will be protected, both against surface movements as well as being weatherproof.
