Lucas Aluminum Roof Coatings are the most
effective reflective surfacings for asphalt B.U.R. and both SBS and
APP modified bitumen roofs. Aluminum roof coatings consist of bright
reflective aluminum flakes in a bituminous vehicle with various
modifiers. They are 100% compatible with bituminous roofs,
inexpensive, renewable and have higher reflectivity and better U.V.
screening capabilities than ceramic granules. Lucas Aluminum coatings extend roof
life, lower energy usage in both hot and cool climates and improve the environment by combating the Urban
Island Effect. Lucas Aluminum Coatings allow bituminous roofs to meet the stringent reflectivity
requirements of the Chicago Energy Code.

#3000 Thermoplastic Aluminum Roof Coating
Lucas #3000 is an
entirely different class of aluminum coating. Unlike traditional
aluminum coatings, Lucas #3000 is manufactured from a pure polymer base
(Styrene Ethylene/Butylene Styrene). Lucas #3000 is intended for
application to metal, asphalt and modified bitumen roofs. Because
it's made with a clear polymer/resin base rather than black asphalt, Lucas
#3000 retains nearly all of its initial brightness throughout its service
life. It is also a true waterproof coating when applied in a two coat
application, unlike asphalt/aluminum coatings which are primarily
effective UV shielding product
Lucas #3300 E-Factor Radiant Barrier
is an energy efficient coating intended for application to
interior walls and the underside of roof sheathing in attics. Lucas
E-Factor Radiant Barrier Coating has an extremely low infrared emissivity
value. Emissivity is the percentage of absorbed heat energy that can be
re-emitted as infrared radiation. Low emissivity surfaces will emit as
little as 20% of the heat of most common building materials. That means
that as much as 80% of the heat is prevented from entering the building
and is re-emitted outside through the roof surface. This can translate
to as much as 15% in energy savings. Lucas #3300 has an Emissivity as
low as .16.
