ssBuilt To Lastss
Our proprietary formulas for Kingston Stone coated steel metal tile roofing panels are built to stand the test of time. We have never drifted from using only the highest quality raw materials and exclusive formulated coatings.

ssGauge Base Steelss
Kingston uses panels that are made from the best quality structural grade steel. We make sure that the seed of your roof is rigid enough to tolerate reasonable loads while allowing profile designs without the risks of cracking or significant elastic recovery.
-Hot Dipped Zinc-Aluminum Alloy Galvanized Coating
The first layer of protection on our firm steel panels is achieved when the steel dips through a bath of molten aluminum-zinc alloy (composed of Aluminum (55%), pilule Zinc (43.4%) and Silicon (1.6%). This coating combines the protection and strength of both aluminum and zinc. Developers of aluminum-zinc alloy coatings have captured exposure data indicating corrosion protection of the underlying steel exceeds 50 years in most environments.
ssAcrylic Priming Systemss
An acrylic coating is applied to both sides of the panel after the application of the aluminum-zinc coatings to further enhance the longevity of the galvalume coating and underlying steel, pharmacy and provides a uniform substrate that enhances the adhesion of the additional coatings.
ssBase Coatss
Our base coat is a petroleum base with a highly UV resistant proprietary acrylic resin binder. This specially formulated coating is proprietary to Kingston. A generous base coat is poured (not sprayed) onto the tile before quality granite and ceramic colored chips are bonded into the wet base coat. The base coat serves as a base color and bonding agent for the stone granules, sickness and offers a further level of protection from both water and air to the underlying acrylic and galvalume coated steel.
ssCeramic Coated Stone Granulesss
A protective coating and attractive appearance is provided by stone granules. They further enhance the resistance to UV light while providing an array of colors. These ceramic coated granules are sized and applied in such a way to insure maximum coverage of the base coat; and adds another layer of protection against weather erosion.

ssOver glazess
An acrylic over glaze with UV inhibitors is applied as a final coating that gives the granules a semi-gloss appearance. This extremely durable acrylic finish bonds to the granules and encapsulates them with a coating that enhances the panel’s resistance to physical damage.
