How is Simix applied? Simix Multi-Surface Degreaser is applied with an airless pump system. For large surface applications, landscape style tank sprayers are used. Simix Ceramic Exterior Coating can be mopped on (when applying to large white membrane rooftops) or sprayed on (when applying to barrel tile or asphalt shingles).
How much does it cost? Simix Multi-Surface Degreaser is less expensive than bleach and lasts longer. It is also safe for plants and pets, reducing plant replacement costs. A bag costs $64. Simix Ceramic Exterior Coating can extend the life of your roof by five years or more. A gallon of the coating costs $180.
What kinds of roof surfaces can Simix be used on? Simix Multi-Surface Degreaser and Simix Ceramic Exterior Coating can be used on residential and commercial roofing surfaces including asphalt shingles, concrete and clay tile, metal roofing, slate, mod bit, single-ply membranes, smooth surfaces, built-up roofing and ballasted single ply.
Can Simix be applied in any kind of weather? Simix must dry before it rains, snows, or freezes.
How will Simix save me money on air conditioning? An algae-free roof can reduce annual cooling costs 2% to 5%. Algae is black and it absorbs heat from the sun, transferring that heat into your house. A cleaner roof will reflect the sun’s heat.
Why is Simix better for the environment than bleach? Simix breaks down volatile organic compounds into harmless, inert materials and carbon dioxide. The inert materials disappear into the soil. Bleach is chlorine -- a toxic substance that can kill plants and animals and can be very harmful to your lungs. Prolonged use of bleach will damage paint, destroy roofing underlayment and asphalt shingles.
What does Simix Photocatalytic Oxidation Technology do? Simix Ceramic Exterior Coating and Simix Multi-Surface Degreaser are nanoengineered. They work in the world of particles that are 1,000 times smaller than the human eye can see. Simix contains nanoparticles of titanium dioxide,
which react with sunlight to break down mold, algae, smog, tannin, oil stains and grime.
