Product Overview


ClimoPlate ™ is a New Zealand manufactured Alkyd / Bitumen co-polymer, solvent / water emulsion based top coat paint developed primarily for New Zealand outdoor conditions.
ClimoPlate  is specifically but not exclusively formulated to act as a top coat over bitumen based sealers such as our GilsoFlex™ and FlexsoTar™ products. It is ideally suited for painting of exposed metal roofs, cement tile roofs and steel structures. It is compatible and suitable to be used on Decramastic and Bitumen roofs.
ClimoPlate  can also be used on other substrates like timber etc.

Climoplate top coat paint is the best roof paint NZ has.

Because of its disinfecting effect, it will retard the growth of moss or lichen.
Substrate surface preparation requirements are minimal.

Roof requires one top coat paint only and One (1) Litre will cover approximately 4 to 8 Square Meters, depending on roof surface.

  • 4ltr will cover approximately 16 to 32 Square Meters
  • 10ltr will cover approximately 40 to 80 Square Meters
  • 20ltr will cover approximately 80 to 160 Square Meters

ClimoPlate  is intended primarily for surface application by brushing, rolling or airless spraying.

A re-coat might be required after 8 to 10 years.

We are in the process of adding more colours to our range. (Please ask via "eMail" if you would like us to match a specific colour for you, and we will advise).

Please note you can now select your prefered product packaging.

    Great product, good price, good customer service and advice. I have found it great for rolling with a short nap sleeve. Dries quickly so good even if weather is a bit uncertain. Not very easy to brush as it dries and pulls of surface. I am using it to paint my caravan and am happy with the results.

    Have to commend the company for customer service. So few companies actually respond to customer queries but this one does. Even by phone. Very helpful with technical assistance and with product selection and advice. Product was great too.

    Painted two forty foot reefer containers with this using an airless sprayer (didnt need to use thinner at all) and they came up fantastic. Will definitely buy again in the future.
