Standard Solids Silicone

The standard solids silicone roof restoration system has a lower solids content than the IPP High Solids Silicone System.

It is suitable for spray foam surfaces as the solids content allows it to fill all the pits in the foam.

Also, you can use it as a single-component, fluid-applied restoration system.

The main benefits of standard solids silicone are:

  • Double coat application
  • Lasts up to 15 years
  • Suitable for spray foam surfaces
  • You don’t need experience to applied it

High Solids Silicone System

The most evident difference between high solids vs standard solids is that high solids have a higher solids content.

Therefore, there will be more silicone per gallon left on the roof once the product cures.

Indeed, this benefit is essential for roofing contractors who want to save money on labor costs and application time.

In addition, a high solids silicone system can offer you a better warranty program than a standard solids silicone system.
