In liquid reflective roof coatings, Lubrizol resins offer reliable protection against weathering, dirt pick-up and ponding water damage. Our additives disperse pigments that promote reflectivity, which results in lower energy costs for building owners.

For concrete coatings, Lubrizol resins and additives ensure excellent protection, excellent color retention and resistance to water, efflorescence, carbonation and dirt pick-up.

In wood coatings and floor coatings, our polymers can be an integral part of tough, long lasting, beautiful finishes by delivering core properties that enable coatings to be more durable, easy to use and user friendly, always complying with the most indoor air quality regulations.


Technologies commonly used in building and construction applications include dispersants, resins, wax additives, and specialty additives.
