This latest development has been built on the already proven hybrid roof coating system which is currently being specified and in widespread use. Now we have the ease of re-coat of an old style silicone coating but with the application moisture tolerance the hybrid coating has brought to the market.
From July 2019 we are also launching our latest version of Advantage for metal roofs - Advantage Graphene. It's still the same lightweight, re-coatable coating but with added graphene. Graphene, 200 times stronger than steel, creates a tortuous pathway for water molecules, oxygen and salt to pass through giving unparalleled protection for your metal roof against corrosion and rust.

For the first time the roofing industry can deliver commercial and industrial building owners with a moisture tolerant recoatable system, following the launch of Advantage. Advantage is light, yet incredibly strong. It’s taken four years of extensive R&D and testing, but now the system is technically the best product on the market.
Thanks to its unique chemistry, the revolutionary single coat product can be applied in damp conditions and is recoatable - significantly extending the working window for roofing contractors, regardless of the weather.
The new hybrid system is primarily for industrial and commercial roof refurbishment. It’s the first of its kind, and the result of a partnership between Alltimes coatings and Blocksil, to develop a solution that would answer the industry’s long-term demands for a single coat, moisture tolerant product which can be recoated, without the need for additional primers.
The thin-film coating has no membrane and is only 200 microns in thickness when applied. Because of its impressive spread rate, contractors can cover much larger surface areas than before and it’s start/stop technology also means Advantage can be applied in stages without any time restrictions, giving contractors a new level of freedom and flexibility.
Thanks to its one coat nature, speed of application is quicker and with contractors only having to traverse the roof once, foot traffic is reduced by 50 per cent, making Advantage more efficient and economical, than other systems.
Scaffolding is needed for less time, and safety is greatly improved, with contractors spending less time working at height. There’s also the added benefit of it being solvent and VOC free. Advantage doesn’t need ‘hazardous storage’, which makes onsite logistics of handling and storage easy.
It has a 20-year product warranty with a 10-year latent defects insurance available, guaranteed by UK Underwriters.
One of its biggest advantages is that it has two pressures – positive and negative, a feature which enables it to withstand a greater load. The whole system still breathes, keeping a constant temperature in a building.
The system is designed for a wide range of roof types and purposes. As well as roofing, Advantage can be used on guttering. The single pack roof system is designed for over-corrosion and with minimal preparation.
