At IRE 2020, Kemper System demonstrated the versatile new Kemperol IK-LF 
flashing that can make durable roof repairs quick and easy

West Seneca, NY Kemper System America, Inc. demonstrated the  versatile new Kemperol 1K-LF Flashing, designed for quick, durable roof repairs, every 60 minutes at their booth at the International Roofing Expo (IRE) February 4th - 6th in Dallas.

Kemperol 1K-LF flashing is liquid-applied and reinforced, making it ideal for common roof leaks, complex penetration details and retro-fitting small roof projects. Unlike most other roof repair products, Kemperol 1K-LF is a solvent-free, low-odor system that adheres to most substrates without a primer–and is fully reinforced for more durable waterproofing protection. The single-component, silane-based waterproofing can be applied at temperatures above 41?F even in humid conditions and is rainfast in about two hours. 

Kemper System offers a range of cold liquid-applied waterproofing systems for ‘green,’ ‘blue’ and ‘white’ cool roofs, as well as new Kemperol 2K-FR with thru-color for exposed roof areas that do not need a white roof, which will also be featured at IRE. The reinforced membrane system is designed for extended life on low-slope roofs and available in five colors. Because the resin is tinted throughout, there is no need for a color topcoat.

The company’s cool-roof products include two reinforced membrane systems–Kemperol Reflect 2K-FR, a PUR with a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) rating of 110, and Kemperol AC Speed (SRI 108), a PMMA–as well as two elastomeric-based products which can be brush, roller or spray-applied. Roof Guardian RG-180 is a fibered white acrylic elastomeric roof (SRI 108), and Roof Guardian RG-170 is a white elastomeric coating (SRI 109).  

For over 60 years, Kemper System has been and continues to be a global industry leader in cold liquid-applied, reinforced roofing and waterproofing. Today the company’s full range of building envelope solutions protect against weather, preserve the integrity of surfaces, and enhance the energy savings, comfort and value of buildings. This encompasses Kemperol® reinforced membrane systems, the company flagship for exterior and interior waterproofing, Roof Guardian® elastomer-based roof coatings, COELAN® traffic coating systems, Wall Guardian® fibered acrylic air barrier, HeatBloc-ULTRATM radiant heat barrier and GreatSeal® construction sealants.
