KST Coatings Celebrates Commercial Roof Coating System Centennial
Built on a solid legacy of excellence throughout all aspects of its business – from its people to its products – KST Coatings is now celebrating its 100th year in the professional roof coating systems industry.
The company, which originated in Cleveland, Ohio in 1906, as the Acorn Refinery Company, is best known in the commercial roofing sector for its quality Uniflex® brand products. KST Coatings was acquired by The Sherwin-Williams Company in 2005 and is now part of that organization’s Building Materials Unit.
“Today, Uniflex coatings cover millions of square feet of commercial roofs throughout North America,” says Andrew Kinnen, Business Unit Director for Sherwin-Williams.
Products for a Variety of Commercial Needs
The Uniflex line includes time-tested products that are well-suited for use on metal, single-ply, built-up and modified bitumen, and polyurethane foam roof systems. Featuring coating solutions that range from Uniflex 500 Roof Coating to Uniflex Elastomeric and Uniflex SPE Gray Acrylic Base Coat, the product scope is designed to meet the exacting demands of today’s commercial roofing specifications.
Recognized for Performance, Valued by Customers and Contractors
Uniflex coating systems are UL and FM approved and meet Energy Star Partner criteria. The products, which are independently tested by the Cool Roof Rating Council, offer a high UV reflectance value, which can minimize energy costs. In addition, Uniflex products carry an extensive warranty to help reduce roof maintenance expenditures.
Uniflex Professional Roof Coating Systems are sold directly to contractors or property owners. KST Coatings is headquartered in Twinsburg, Ohio, and has manufacturing facilities in Largo, Fla. and in Victorville, Calif. Since 1906, the company has been providing quality roof coating solutions for both consumer and commercial markets. KST Coatings products are designed to address requirements that range from environmental factors to substrate protection concerns.
