Imper-Sol™ AC Premium Roof Coatings are the ultimate fluid applied roof preservation solutions. 

Bitec has a magic power. They can transform dark-colored, energy-absorbing roofs into bright-colored roofs that reflect the sun’s rays, lowering energy costs and increasing the life cycle of the roof system. How? With their Imper-Sol AC Premium roof coating.  

Cool roofs are growing in popularity every year, with many cities offering incentives and adopting these reflective roofs as a way to reduce city heat (otherwise known as the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect) as they bounce the heat of the sun off the roof. 

Imper-Sol AC Premium is a CRRC-rated white acrylic roof coating, that works to significantly reduce roof temperatures. This elastomeric coating is water-based, made of pure acrylic, self-curing latex polymers. The coating features a unique bleed-blocking quality that eliminates the need for a coating primer.  

Once cured, this coating protects and preserves the roof surface, providing excellent waterproofing, UV resistance, and most importantly, reduces under roof temperatures for greater building efficiency. Imper-Sol AC Premium meets Title 24 requirements, providing a cost-effective and sustainable solution that meets rising building standards.
