One of the most common questions we get here at Countryman Coatings (CMC) is “Will your coating stick to …?” Although the easy answer is, “Almost anything,” we wanted to spend some time diving into this question for you. In today’s blog we are answering the question “What Does Silicone Stick To?”
What is Silicone?
Before moving forward, it’s important to be reminded of silicone’s makeup. Silicone is a polymer product, which simply means it is composed of a particular material blend. In the case of silicone, it is comprised of different inorganic materials. Described as something of a hybrid between a synthetic rubber and a synthetic plastic polymer, silicone can be used to make malleable rubber-like items, hard resins, and – in our industry -- spreadable fluids. Silicone coatings can be used for anything from small repairs to large-scale commercial roof restorations.
What Does Silicone Stick To?
It’s a very, very long list. Our silicone products can adhere to almost any surface. They can restore or repair almost any material. They can perform in almost every situation.
If you are trying to repair or completely restore your home’s flat roof, we’ve got you covered. Our coating will adhere to nearly any roof substrate. If you have skylight that is leaking, we have a clear silicone just for that. We have silicone that can be rolled on and silicone that is closer to a putty. We are even launching a caulk tube in coming months. We are designing a product line that can help you waterproof nearly every facet of your home.
CMC will also adhere to awnings, boat canopies, storage units, shingles, barns, detached carports, and other things. If you’re a do-it-yourselfer and need a waterproof seal, it’s a good bet that CMC can help. Because we are a company that cares, we can also offer an adhesion test to ensure you get good adhesion before purchasing a large amount of coating. How many other companies will offer that?!
CMC silicone will “stick to” almost anything. If you need a waterproof barrier, it’s a safe bet that our silicone coatings will get the job done.
