Garland's Pyramic® white, non-toxic, ENERGY STAR® qualified acrylic coating preserves asphaltic or modified bitumen surfaces and significantly reduces under roof temperatures to create a more comfortable, energy efficient environment. The ENERGY STAR® qualified coating contains substantial levels of UV-blocking pigments that keep solar heat out of the building, slowing down roof aging and extending the life of the roofing system. Its high-performance acrylic polymers provide added strength, flexibility, adhesion, and color-retention to aged roofing systems. It provides 0.83 reflectance, 0.88 emittance, and a SRI (Solar Reflective Index) rating of 104.
Typical dark colored built-up roofs (BUR) can absorb over 70% of the solar energy that reaches them, creating temperatures over 180°F (82.2°C). Studies confirm that Pyramic can reduce roof temperatures by 50° to 80°F (10° to 26.7°C) and save significant amounts of cooling energy during the summer months. Pyramic also eliminates the flammability and toxicity hazards associated with solvent based coatings.
