This updated case study concerns a movie theater chain building’s asphalt roof in Avondale in Phoenix where high UV, temperature extremes and often violent storms, give coatings and membranes, a mix of some of the hardest conditions in the entire nation.
Even specialized coatings, created specifically for controlling this phenomenon, have had mixed results, that’s why the performance of our Ecodur on asphalt roofs with cool topcoats in Phoenix, during the past two years, has exceeded our expectations.

Phoenix, AZ – May 31, 2018. A long-term trial of a veggie-plastic primer coating manually applied on a garage roof 23-years ago, is showing 100% integrity, while the cap cover of asphalt roll has extensive micro-cracking and signs of failure.
The Benjamin Franklin axiom ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’, is never more appropriate than for the world of concrete where degradation can easily lead to the life-cycle cost of a structure being greater than 50 per cent of the capital value of an asset, or worse.
Phoenix, AZ, April 3, 2018 – “Aquaculture has assumed a major role in feeding billions of people worldwide and the importance of maintaining purity and cost-effectiveness in the rearing environment will only grow too,” states Castagra Products, Inc. CEO, Peter Roosen.
