Plascon’s new TradePro Roof & More is set to make waves in water conservation

0

It’s good for roofs, it’s good for consumers and it’s good for the environment – what more could you ask for from a roof coating? Plascon’s latest addition to its durable exterior coatings range, Plascon TradePro Roof & More, offers more benefits than ever – all in one product. It is the world’s first all-in-one roof paint and acrylic waterproofer to offer a 10-year guarantee for both benefits, delivering the ultimate sun and rain protection solution to renewing, maintaining and protecting roofs. It is also available in eight modern, long-lasting colours.

But Plascon didn’t stop there…

What makes Plascon TradePro Roof & More even more remarkable is that it is Africa’s first roof paint to be entirely free of the harmful APEO chemical compounds. APEO compounds are persistent and bio-accumulative when released into the environment and toxic to human and wildlife, especially marine life. All other conventional roof paints contain APEO compounds that, over time, are washed into the environment and eventually contaminate the soil, water tables, rivers and ultimately, our oceans. For this reason, many European Union and other countries have banned the use of APEOs.

According to Dr Kevin Winter from the University of Cape Town’s Future Water Organisation: “APEOs found in freshwater systems are toxic to aquatic organisms. In large doses, APEOs even have the potential to disrupt human hormonal systems. APEOs are discharged into freshwater systems from stormwater runoff and sewage works. They are found in a variety of products including paints, packaging and cleaning agents. There is nearly 20 years of research available on the environmental impact of APEOs on waterbodies.”

Plascon TradePro Roof & More is APEO-free so by painting your roof with it you are contributing to a safer, healthier and more sustainable planet. Water, although a reusable resource, needs to be treated responsibly and conserved in order to avoid pollution and water shortages. South Africa is amongst the most water-scarce countries in the world and one way to use water more responsibly – and save more money on your monthly municipal bill – is to harvest rainwater from roofs. Since Plascon TradePro Roof & More is APEO-free it is safe for the harvesting of rainwater for non-potable use – good for you, good for the environment.

TradePro Roof & More is yet another example of how Plascon shows its commitment to protecting the environment by creating products that are eco-friendly. Saving money, saving water and saving the environment – Plascon TradePro Roof & More puts all of these benefits ‘under one roof’!
