‘Waterproof’ can mean a whole bunch of things in today’s day and age. If you’re talking about one of those budget watches or portable speakers, ‘waterproof’ usually means it’ll take a couple of dunks before it stops working and joins the technology graveyard. When talking about roof sealants, on the other hand, manufacturers simply can’t afford to be so generous with the word ‘waterproof’. The sealants have to endure years and years of exposure to the elements, including torrential rain and occasional hail. So, if you’re looking for a waterproof roof sealant, or you’re undergoing a roof restoration in the near future, what exactly are you looking out for? Let’s take a look at the best roof membrane on the market.
Dulux Acratex roof membrane
Dulux have created a roof membrane that effectively weatherproofs your roof before conducting a restoration: introducing Dulux Acretex roof membrane. This waterproof roof sealant is designed to withstand the unforgiving Australian climate, with unparalleled flexibility to accommodate for expanding and contracting in varying temperatures.
Why Dulux Acratex is one of the best waterproofing sealants on the market
Made in Australia, by Australians, for Australians, Dulux Acratex has a number of things over its competitors:
One of the most durable roof membranes on the market, you won’t need to worry about the lifespan of Dulux Acratex. Coupled up with one of Dulux’s high quality paints, which come a 15-year warranty, your roof will be looking good for years and years.
- Elongation and tactile strength
Elongation and tactile strength are two of the key qualities that make Dulux Acratex one of the best sealants on the market. This is because it has a high level of Dry Film Thickness. A regular coat of low-film paint contains an average of 25 microns of Dry Film Thickness, whereas Dulux Acratex contains 66 microns of Dry Film Thickness per coat. This is almost three times the amount of paint, making Dulux roof membrane a much more flexible and strong material than a regular coat of paint.

One of the most important features of your roof is that it looks good, considering it’s one of the first things you see when you pull into your driveway. Dulux Acratex guarantees a smooth, clean finish when you apply your coat of paint.
