Garland Canada has introduced a cold-applied waterproof coating that aims to improve long-term performance of coal tar and asphalt roofing systems.

The new product — Energizer BK — is designed to be used as a flood coat over new and existing asphalt and coal tar roof systems or as a premium restoration material, according to the Toronto, Canada-based company.

Energizer BK is specially formulated with an asphalt coal tar blend to provide water resistance in addition to strength and flexibility.

Energizer BK is a cold-applied flood coating for coal tar or asphalt roofing systems.

Garland says to product provides “natural resistance to moisture, chemicals, UV and aging, improving the long-term performance and reducing life-cycle costs."

“Energizer BK is a versatile waterproof coating that adheres well to a variety of roofing systems,” Charbel Boulos, P.Eng., president of Garland Canada Inc., said in a company announcement.

“It offers long-term performance and low maintenance costs, significantly reducing life-cycle costs associated with standard roofing systems.”


Since Energizer BK is cold-applied, it eliminates many of the harmful emissions of a conventional hot-applied coal tar system. But, the company says, it provides that same performance benefits.

In addition to being cold-applied, the product is fiber reinforced to provide sag resistance, increased tensile strength, crack resistance and improved weathering resistance.
