Garland Product Effectively Disperses Standing Water
The Garland Company, Inc. has recently introduced Quick-Slope™ modified acrylic cementitious material, an easy-to-apply material that redirects or disperses harmful standing water on low-slope modified bitumen roofing. It is designed to reduce and redirect water toward existing scuppers or drains. It can also be used to provide increased localized slope. The Quick-Slope solution is a cost-effective alternative to adding drains or crickets, and provides a tenacious bond to new or existing smooth or mineral roof systems. It can beadded to ponded areas to help water travel in multiple directions, thereby speeding up evaporation. Once a surface is cleaned and prepared, the product can be troweled out in minutes, without removal of existing roofing material.
According to Garland product manager, Rick Catley, “Besides being economical, remarkably tough, and easy to apply, Quick-Slope is low-odor and non-volatile, so it can be applied without any disruption to the workplace, and with minimal waste.”
Due to its specialized dry polymers and chemical makeup, Quick-Slope material is extremely durable once cured. It can be coated with Garland’s Pyramic® or Garla-Brite® roof coatings, to achieve a highly reflective finish.
