Kemper System: Company to Demo New 'Cool Roof' that Boosts Energy Efficiency


West Seneca, N.Y. — Feb. 18, 2016 — Kemper System America, Inc. will feature a new "Cool Roof" system that can improve building energy efficiency at RCI 2016, March 10-15, in Orlando, Fla. The company will be at booth #721.

With a high Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 110, Kemperol Reflect 2K FR can dramatically reduce the impact of infrared rays on building cooling requirements.

A special overview of the technology, including a hands-on demonstration, is scheduled for March 12th at 5:15 p.m. at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort. 

Kemperol Reflect 2K FR exceeds requirements for LEED credits under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program. The bright white surface reduces the impact of infrared rays (IR) so it also reduces the Urban Heat Island effect, where heat radiating from buildings and asphalt raises the local temperature. 

The easy-to-apply, low-VOC resin membrane system consists of 70 percent rapidly renewable resources and is fire rated for Class-A assemblies. 

“Kemperol Reflect 2K FR extends our efforts to support sustainable design. It is an all-in-one Cool Roof system, so no reflective topcoat is necessary, which reduces labor costs during initial installation and future maintenance costs,” said Kemper System President and Managing Director Richard Doornink. 

Introduced in North America in 2015, Kemperol Reflect 2K FR offers the same advantages as the company’s best-selling Kemperol 2K-PUR membrane system, popular for green roofs and blue roofs. Both systems are fully reinforced membranes that can stand up to harsh conditions including sun, wind, rain, ponding water, snow, and ice. Both fully adhere to substrates, and are self-flashing and self-terminating. They can monolithically seal roof perimeters, multiple penetrations, and virtually any architectural detail. 

Kemper System has been a leader in cold, liquid-applied, reinforced roofing and waterproofing technology for over 50 years, having invented the technology and holding the first patents.  It is also a leader in solvent-free and odor-free liquid-membrane systems and provides long-term, built-to-last solutions for  white roofs, green roofs, blue roofs, new roof assemblies, existing roof recovery, metal roofs, balconies and terraces, plazas, historic restoration, gutterways, interior and industrial applications, and below-grade waterproofing.
