Our range of robust, waterproof, long lasting Roof Coatings, have been protecting New Zealand roofs since 1993.

We have a range of roof coatings to suit all requirements and we also have the experience to provide you with the best solutions for your building, home or commercial premises. MMP coatings are also specialists in swimming pool paint and can recommend a pool painter for your area.

One of our roof coating products is Noxyde which is a paint over metal, anti-corrosion waterproof membrane that can be applied to a multiple list of substrates to provide robust waterproofing or anti-corrosion protection.

From Bridges in Saltwater Estuaries, to air conditioning ducts on roofs, to encapsulating asbestos roofs with a waterproof membrane.

Noyyde is very versatile and extremely effective as a roof coating or a cover for a substrate. Noxyde has an excellent UV resistance and can tolerate high salt laden environments indefinitely especially in areas that are not washed by rain regularly. Noxyde suits the severe coastal conditions found in New Zealand and combined with the high rainfall we get, makes Noxyde very sort after as a roof coatings to architects and designers alike. The product has one of the longest recorded performances histories overseas at nearly 40 years of being used as a waterproofing system and as a roof coating. The coating has kept its film build and flexibility and is still fully intact after 40 years as a roof coating.

Our roof coating product Noxyde is a single component, water-based roof coating that has very low VOC’s, no odour and is completely safe to use in nearly all applications. The recommended application method is by airless spray, and Noxyde has a dry fall factor of 20 metres when applied in sensitive areas.

As a roof coating it can also be applied directly to a metal roof, or a metal substrate as the product is self priming and contains an amazing 20% of anti-corrosion pigments. This is why our roof coating product is so highly recommended by contractors and applicators.

Two thick coatings on a roof coating is generally all that is required to achieve the minimum dry film build and this can often be completed in one single day, which greatly reduces costs of travel and labour.

The manufacturers recommend a minimum preparation such as water blasting the roof first with a 5000psi rotary head and maybe some power tool cleaning to remove loose debris is all that is required before application.

For large steel structures Noxyde is an anti-corrosive will encapsulate the surface with a thick seamless, anti-corrosive, waterproof membrane, that will remain flexible indefinitely with 200% elongation.
The coating will move, expand and contract with the structure eliminating cracked coatings that allow moisture ingression to continue the corrosion process.

We have been dealing in roof coatings and swimming pool paints now for many years and our sales team is very knowledgeable on providing a suitable solution for your application. We have a few roof coatings to choose from and all have minor difference so please contact our sales team to ensure you get the right one.


Another popular roof coating is FLAMENCO
Above is an application where a robust waterproof roof coating was required. We used Flamenco roof coating product for this application as the roof was constructed of aluminum. The client needed to protect and waterproof the roof to ensure the building was not damaged internally as the roof had continual ponding water. This application photographed is on top of a telephone exchange in the Waitakere ranges in Auckland where heavy rainfall is common in certain periods of the year. We also supply metal roof coatings.

Flamenco which is designed to withstand continuous submersion and not break down with UV. The advantage of Flamenco waterproof coating is it remains flexible ensuring the water proof coating remains stable. It is also used as a concrete paint and is a proven product and is on thousands of large commercial roofs in New Zealand. Roofing contractors swear by this product.
