‘Cool Roof’ Made to Boost Energy Efficiency

THURSDAY, MARCH 10, 2016


The new Kemperol Reflect 2K FR cool roof system is said to dramatically reduce the impact of infrared rays, while improving building energy efficiency.

Manufactured by Kemper System America Inc., of West Seneca, NY, the product is a cold liquid-applied, fully reinforced, highly reflective, fire-rated resin system, according to a product release.

The system does not require a reflective topcoat, which reduces labor costs during initial installation and future maintenance costs, according to the company.

Additional Features, Characteristics

Kemper System says the low-VOC membrane consists of 70 percent rapidly renewable resources and boasts a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 110.

The membrane can withstand harsh conditions including: sun, wind, rain, ponding water, snow and ice, the company adds.

Adhering to substrates, the technology is self-flashing and self-terminating, the manufacturer reports. Further, it can monolithically seal roof perimeters, multiple penetrations and virtually any architectural detail, Kemper System adds.

The system is also said to exceed requirements for LEED credits.

The company plans to demonstrate the technology during RCI, held March 10-15 in Orlando.
