Flintglas mineral surfaced cap sheet with CoolStar energy-saving reflective surface is designed to reduce the amount of heat absorbed by roofing materials and help lower energy costs. It is rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council; is California Title 24, Part 6 compliant; and meets initial Energy Star requirements as a cap sheet for use over inorganic and organic built-up roofing systems.

The brilliant white, acrylic-based CoolStar coating has an initial solar reflectance of 0.77 and a thermal emittance of 0.92. It is factory-applied to the Flintglas cap sheet, which features weathering-grade asphalt mixed with white ceramic granules. It is designed to adapt to the natural movements of the roof.

CoolStar touch-up coating is available for touch-up projects. It has been tested to perform with a single coat application.
