Berger Paints Bangladesh Limited (BPBL) has introduced flexible roofing compound recently.

The new product is an excellent coating for roofs which seals and stops penetration of moisture from exterior surface and keeps the roof protected, said a press release.

Berger flexible roofing compound contains specially formulated acrylic-based dry film and Recron® modified polyester hollow fibers, which can stretch to an impressive extent to provide a crack-free surface on the roof.

 It also helps to keep the roof cool during summer. This new product has excellent total solar reflectance, as it is capable of reflecting shade-wise 75 percent to 84 percent of solar energy, which helps to reduce the surface temperature up to 3° Celsius compared to conventional coatings.

The product has already been certified and appreciated by multiple standardisation authorities. The initial solar reflectance and thermal emittance of Berger flexible roofing compound were tested by Specialist Testing and Technical Service (STATS) Singapore.
