Low-e Roof barrier for the underside of roof decks
NXT E-Zone e-0.25 Roof Barrier is formulated to be sprayed on the underside of the roof deck. When applied it creates an effective radiant barrier that will stop up to 77% of the potential radiant energy transfer into the attic.
The physics behind NXT e-Zone e-0.25 Roof Barrier is similar to low-e glass windows, which reduce the absorption of heat into a building in the summer. The “e” refers to emissivity, which is the ability of a surface to emit or absorb radiant energy. The lower the “e” value, the more efficient it is in managing energy and the greater the energy savings for the dwelling.
Features and Benefits
- Reflects up to 77% of radiant energy
- Increases interior comfort level
- 100% seamless coverage of attic space
- More cost efficient than alternative attic systems
- Does not alter electromagnetic fields
- Will not disrupt attic-mounted antennae or cell
- Anti-condensation properties
- One coat coverage on interior bare wood and metal
- Will not increase attic moisture
- Fast application
- Easy application by spray, roller and brush
NXT e-Zone Roof Barrier may be applied by brush, roller and sprayer. The preferred method is spraying.
Recommended pressure is 2,000 psi using tip size, 0.019 to 0.021” (0.48 to 0.53 mm). For best results use a spray pump size 3/4 GPM or greater. Use a 3/8” (9.5 mm) synthetic-nap roller cover. Use a nylon/polyester device.
Because of its use as an attic barrier, with roofing nails penetrating the surface, brushing or rolling may be difficult application methods.
Apply to clean, dust-free, dry surface. No need to prime.
Remove all surface contaminants with an appropriate cleaner.
Remove lid from Part B and use a spatula to put entire contents into the 20L pail containing Part A.
Mix thoroughly for 5 minutes with an electric mixer before use. Hand mixing is not enough.
Make certain to only mix as much material as can be applied in one day.
Use warm, soapy water. Follow sprayer manufacturer recommendations when cleaning equipment.
