KST Coatings: One Hundred Years - and Counting
Kool Seal® Reflective Roof Coatings, Snow Roof Systems® Celebrate Centennial
Built on a solid legacy of excellence throughout all aspects of its business - from its people to its products - KST Coatings is now celebrating its 100th year in the roof coating market.
The company, which originated in Cleveland, Ohio in 1906, as the Acorn Refinery Company, is best known in the roof coating business for its quality Kool Seal and Snow Roof brands. KST Coatings was acquired by The Sherwin-Williams Company in 2005 and is now part of that organization's Building Materials Unit.
"With the array of quality products in both its Kool Seal and Snow Roof brands," says Andrew Kinnen, Business Unit Director for Sherwin-Williams, "KST has securely and cost-effectively covered roofs throughout the nation."
Kool Seal Coatings: Energy-Saving Solutions for a Range of Roofs
Kool Seal Elastomeric Roof Coatings are designed to revive and renew roofs in just a few easy steps. The highly reflective products, which are ideal for use on metal, concrete, foam, flat and barrel cement tile and on aged aluminum coating surfaces, can help reduce energy costs by as much as 30 percent while they help keep interior spaces cooler and more comfortable.
For metal, asphalt, modified bitumen, rolled roofing and aged aluminum, Kool Seal offers quality aluminum roof coatings in two grades - Premium and Economy. These coatings are engineered to protect against moisture, reduce sunlight heat build up and keep interiors cooler, while significantly increasing energy savings.
Kool Seal Patching Products stop leaks quickly on all roofs, handling even the toughest repairs with ease. Even better, the products are specially formulated to stay flexible, so they remain watertight regardless of expansion and contraction caused by environmental conditions.
Snow Roof Systems: Solutions for Tough Weatherproofing Problems
KST Coatings Snow Roof products are the first line of defense against weather-related water damage. The easy-to-use products include reflective, durable elastomeric solutions and aluminum roof coatings that are well suited for use on asphalt-based roofing, as well as on aluminum, rolled, modified bitumen, metal, built-up and saturated felt roofing, and on aged aluminum coatings.
