In the U.S.A., bio-based roofing products such as reflective roof coatings, adhesives and sealants are a growing market segment. Soy-based roof coatings are able to outperform conventional solutions. So far, they’re used mainly in roof restoration systems. However, biobased coatings are increasingly applied in combination with conventional roofing materials for new construction and retrofit solutions.
