Four proprietary cool roof products manufactured by Orange County, Calif.-based Coat’N’Cool have earned an Energy Star rating. Marketed under the Coat’N’Cool brand name, Coat’N’Cool is a reflective coating that is available in a variety of colors. The products earning the Energy Star rating include four colors: Basecoat White, Topcoat Antique White, Topcoat Butter Cream and Topcoat Siltstone.

Energy Star qualified cool roof products lower roof surface temperature, decreasing the amount of heat transferred into a building and reducing air conditioning costs. According to Coat’N’Cool statistics, a cool roof can lower interior temperatures of a commercial or industrial building by eight to 12 degrees during the hottest four hours of a summer day—noon to four in the afternoon—and can cut peak cooling demand by 10-15 percent.

Sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Energy Star promotes use of energy efficient products in all aspects of energy use from high-rise buildings to HVAC systems. The primary mission of Energy Star is to provide unbiased information that helps Americans identify reliable, cost-effective, energy-saving solutions that protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Through 2010, more than 20,000 organizations have partnered with the EPA, achieving  environmental and financial benefits. Americans, with the help ofEnergy Star, prevented 170 million metric tons of GHG emissions from entering the atmosphere in 2010–– equivalent to the annual emissions from 33 million vehicles—and saved about $18 billion on their
utility bills.

Coat’N’Cool is an architectural coating specially engineered to reflect sun light in the UV, IR and visible spectrum. It was engineered through the use of waterborne epoxy technology and complex inorganic compounded pigments (CICP’s). These CICPs have been finely crushed and placed in a liquid dispersion in order to easily mix with the waterborne epoxy. The CICPs give Coat‘N’Cool its high reflectivity and high fade resistance and provide excellent adhesion and durability the company said.
