APV eCoolRoof with Kynar Aquatec introduced by APV Engineered Coatings
February 8, 2011
APV Engineered Coatings has launched APV eCoolRoof, a new cool roof coating system comprised of a Kynar Aquatec resin-based topcoat and an elastomeric acrylic basecoat. Working together, these two products can provide up to 63 percent increase in life cycle energy savings for a structure, the company said. The APV eCoolRoof has a low VOC content and resists UV ray degradation, chalking, water pickup, dirt pickup, staining, chemicals and corrosion, algae and fungal growth along with abrasion. The product increases the comfort level of the interior of a structure by providing lower indoor temperatures, which reduces the amount of energy used from cooling systems. The APV eCoolRoof coating system meets or exceeds initial Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) requirements to reflect sunlight and heat away from a structure. The products are currently participating in a three-year certification program of age testing, after which they will qualify for Energy Star and CRRC ratings.
