Garland’s Newest Fluid-Applied Membrane System: Cool-Sil

by Kathy Welk

Cool-Sil extends the life of aging single-ply, modified bitumen and metal roofs. This liquid rubber membrane significantly enhances watertight performance and eliminates the need for a full replacement, saving facility managers and building owners time and money while also reducing environmental impact.

Cool-Sil provides ponding water resistance, excellent UV protection and is an easy-to-install one-part product. The silicone rubber-based system is solvent-free with a high solids content that provides a thick and durable, mold and mildew resistant roof covering for proven protection in even the harshest weather conditions. Its high reflectivity can reduce energy cooling costs and provide a more comfortable indoor environment.

“Cool-Sil challenges the narrative that silicone products are a commoditized, low-quality solution,” explains Matt McDermott, president of Garland’s U.S. roofing division. 

Additionally, Cool-Sil meets Garland’s high standards of environmental stewardship. The product is P151 certified by NSF International, a globally recognized product testing organization, for not contaminating water runoff and as safe for waterways.

John Arsena, vice president of Warren Roofing & Insulating Co., whose team of contractors installed Cool-Sil at a school in Kent, Ohio, said, “Application was easy, there was no bothersome odor, and it cured as expected. We recommend Cool-Sil as a high-quality restoration product.”
