  • Apply by brush, roller or airless spray
  • Nuroof must be applied undiluted
  • For non-porous surfaces, such as galvanised iron, apply two coats without diluting to achieve a minimum dry film thickness of 50 microns
  • For extremely porous surfaces, such as unpainted cement, slurry coated tiles, clay and well weathered tiles, apply undiluted Plascon bonding liquid (CVI 14), allow to dry for 8hrs before applying Nuroof. Nuroof must be applied within 48hrs. If 48hr period is exceeded, sand surface to a uniform matt finish and clean. Then apply 2 full coats of undiluted Nuroof to achieve a minimum dry film thickness of 50 microns.
  • Allow at least 1 hr drying time between coats of Nuroof
  • Clean equipment with water.

Product Information

Versatile. Durable. Easy to use

Plascon Nuroof is an extremely durable, weather resistant coating for cementitious and galvanised iron roofs. The tough formulation is resistant to UV light, acid rain and offers superior water resistance.

Use Nuroof on:

  • Cement tiles
  • Asbestos / fibre cement
  • Galvanised iron
  • Previously painted surfaces
  • Window sills, fascias, gutters and downpipes


Why Nuroof should be your first choice:

  • Excellent durability means your roof will be protected for many years to come
  • Thanks to its acrylic emulsion formulation, it offers excellent adhesion (it won't peel) and it highly durable and weather resistant.
  • Nuroof contains UV resistant pigments so that colours remain true for a long time
  • It is water resistant, so it won't soften and peel off
  • Its sheen finish ensures a beautiful, smooth appearance
  • Because Nuroof is water based, there is no solvent smell and equipment is easily cleaned with water,which makes it user and environment friendly
  • Excellent obliteration means two coats are sufficient
  • It dries quickly so that the next coat can be painted after just 1 hour and the job can be completed in one day
  • It is versatile enough to be used on most roof surfaces, window sills, fascias, gutters and downpipes
  • Nuroof's wide colour range offers an excellent choice of colours for any home
Why should I paint my roof?
Protection

Cementitious and galvanized substrates are adversely affected by atmospheric acidic elements. Plascon Nuroof forms a barrier to such elements, thus enhancing or promoting the longevity of the substrate or roof.

Boost your investment

If you're planning to put your house on the market, painting your roof could instantly increase its market value. Another good decision would be to buy a house with a roof that needs attention and pay a good price for it. The simply paint the roof and increase the market value post purchase.

Beautify your home

A freshly painted roof improves the overall appearance of a house. When the exterior walls of a house are repainted, the roof often sticks out like a sore thumb against the newly painted walls. Painting the roof makes the house look new all over.


Why should I paint?

Best times to paint

  • Mid morning after the dew has dried, and before the temperature of the roof has risen to 50 degress Celsius. e midday
  • Restart in the early afternoon and continue until mid afternoon

Do not paint during the following times

  • Early in the morning, as it may still be covered in dew or frost from the night before, which will damage the paint film
  • Late in the afternoon, as there won't be enough time for the paint to dry before early morning dew
  • When the roof is extremely hot, e.g. at noon on a very hot day, as small bubbles will form in the paint and weaken the film
  • During inclement weather, as rain may spoil the paint before it dries
Note: Painting under the above conditions may effect performance of the paint film.
How much paint do I need?
To make sure that you don't buy too much paint, or need to rush back to the store for more paint halfway through the job, use this simple calculation to work out how much you will need.

Practical spreading rate (per coat)
Cement tiles and Fibre cement sheeting: 7m / l (typical)
Galvanised Iron: 9m / l (typical)
Granular Cement tiles: 2-4m / l (typical)

Note: Extremely coarse surfaces and surface profile will effect the spreading rate.

Calculating the surface area of the roof

Step 1: Calculate the flat square metre area
Step 2: Adjust to the pitch of the roof by adding the following %

Pitch of roof Add factor %
High 40
Normal 30
Low 20

Pitch of roof Add factor %
Corrugated 30
IBR 30
Smooth cement tiles 25
Granular cement tiles 70

Calculating the quantity of paint required

You now have the total area of the roof in square metres.
Divide that figure by the average spreading rate of paint for the particular roof surface. This will give you the number of litres of paint required per coat

Multiply by 2 to obtain the total number of litres for two coats.
