MBCI’s Signature® 200 paint system represents the most sophisticated silicone polyester coating system in the industry. It offers optimum exterior protection plus superior resistance to chemical corrosion and ultraviolet radiation. Signature® 200 is a factory-applied and oven-baked protective coating used on Galvalume® and galvanized steel substrates. Signature® 200 combines excellent physical characteristics and aesthetic values for metal panels and components. Its uses in architectural, industrial, commercial, residential and institutional metal construction are numerous. Signature® 200 is a thermoset coating consisting of a proprietary polyester resin modified by silicone resin intermediate.

Signature® 300 coatings are specified by leading architects and used by manufacturers of metal roof panels, curtain wall and other building products as a long-life exterior finish for Galvalume® and galvanized steel substrates. The liquid coating is factory-applied and oven-backed on properly prepared and primed substrates. Signature® 300 coatings typically are used as exterior finishes for metal roofing, siding, fascia, curtain wall, spandrel paneling and column covers.. The building components can be post-formed from pre-coated stock. Signature® 300 coatings are based on 70% KYNAR® 500 or HYLAR® 5000 PVDF fluoropolymer resin.

MBCI’s Signature® 300 and Signature® 200 paint systems both carry a 25-year warranty against excessive chalk and fade.

All of MBCI’s Signature® 300 and Signature® 200 colors are Cool Roof Colors when used for roof applications. The Solar Reflectivity and Solar Reflectance Index values are listed for each color to assist you in choosing colors for your project.

Solar Reflectivity
Solar reflectivity or reflectance (SR) is the ability of a material to reflect solar energy from its surface back into the atmosphere. The SR value is a number from 0 (zero) to 1.0. A value of 0 indicates that the material absorbs all solar energy and a value of 1.0 indicates it is all reflected. ENERGY STAR requires SR testing of both new and aged roof products. New products must have an SR value of 0.25 or higher for steep slope roofing (above 2:12) and an SR value of 0.65 or higher for low slope roofing (2:12 or less). Aged testing requires three (3) years to complete, so not all products that meet the initial requirements are qualified. For more information, please visit www.energystar.gov.

Solar Reflectance Index
The Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) is used to determine compliance with LEED requirements and is calculated according to ASTM E 1980 using values for reflectance and emissivity. Emissivity is a material’s ability to release absorbed energy. To meet LEED requirements a roofing material must have an SRI of 29 or higher for steep slope roofing (above 2:12) and an SRI value of 78 or higher for low slope roofing (2:12 or less.
