RRCI to Develop Field Weathering Study of Roof Coatings

January 17, 2007

The Reflective Roof Coating Institute (RRCI) has announced its design parameters for a Field Weathering Study of Roof Coatings. This study will measure the impact of various factors on the loss of solar reflectance (SR) over time. With the growth of the use of highly reflective white roof coatings, which are the primary means of turning all types of conventional dark roofs into cool roofs, RRCI felt the need to conduct this study to show the increased energy efficiency, the positive environmental impact and the increased roof longevity that
