4 Cool Technology What are Cool Coatings? They are high quality, durable ceramic pigments that resist fading and increase Infrared Radiation (IR) reflectance of a metal roof systemAvailable in two technologiesDuraTech® xl (Skyline Roofing, 3 ft. & 2 ft. products)DuraTech® 5000 (Sterling Roof System)
5 Cool Technology How do Cool Metal Roof coatings work? Visible Spectrum What do you seeInfrared SpectrumWhat you feel
6 Cool Technology Why buy Cool Metal Roofing? The obvious Lower Energy BillsCool(.29 SR) vs. Non-Cool(.12 SR) $.09/sqft per yr (Case Study Baggett Elementary vs. Poole Elementary)Tax IncentivesThe not so obviousHeat Island Effect
8 Cool Technology Cool Color Terms (Handout) Reflectivity: a measure of a materials ability to reflect solar energyNote: Reflectance is not glareEmmissivity: a measure of a materials ability to release heatSolar Reflective Index (SRI): Calculation using a material solar reflectance and emittance.
