ThermaCote is UL Certified
About UL Product Certification
As a safety science company with more than a century of proven experience and expertise, UL is the premier resource for compliance validation, certification, testing, inspection auditing and knowledge solutions worldwide. UL’s certification Mark is one of our greatest assets, and only those products that have earned UL certification are eligible to use our Marks. Only UL can issue our valued certifications and the Marks associated with them.
A UL Classification Mark means that UL has certified a product for one or more of the following: (1) specific risk only, such as casualty, fire, or shock; (2) performance under specified conditions; (3) compliance with regulatory codes; (4) compliance with other standards, including international or regional standards; or (5) other conditions UL may consider desirable.
ThermaCote is CRRC Rated Product
About CRRC Product Ratings
The CRRC is incorporated as a non-profit educational organization to implement and communicate accurate radiative energy performance rating systems for roof surfaces, support research, and serve as an educational resource for information on roofing.
Participation in the CRRC Product Rating Program is separate and distinct from CRRC Membership. The CRRC administers a Rating Program in which companies can label roof surface products with radiative property values. The CRRC does not set a minimum definition for “cool”, the CRRC simply lists the measured radiative property values on our Directory.
About CRRC Membership
The CRRC is incorporated as a non-profit educational organization to implement and communicate an accurate radiative energy performance rating systems for roof surfaces, support research, and serve as an educational resource for information on roofing.
At the core of the CRRC is its Product Rating Program, in which roofing manufacturers can label various roof surface products with radiative property values rated under a strict program administered by the CRRC. Code bodies, architects, building owners and specifiers can rely on the rating information provided in the CRRC Rated Products Directory. ThermaCote is a CRRC Rated Product, and our rating information can be found under the “CRRC Rated Product” logo.
What is a “cool roof?”
A cool roof is one that strongly reflects sunlight and also cools itself by efficiently emitting radiation to its surroundings. The roof literally stays cooler and reduces the amount of heat conducted to the building below. If a builder does not have air conditioning, this keeps the building cooler and a more constant temperature. If a building has air conditioning, the equipment does not have to work as hard. Imagine wearing a white or a black T-shirt on a hot day. By wearing the white T-shirt you will remain cooler than if you wore a black T-shirt because it reflects more sunlight and absorbs less heat. Cool roofs like white T-shirts, keep the internal temperature of the building lower. However, a cool roof need not be white. There are many “cool color” products that use darker-colored pigments that are highly reflective in the near-infrared (non-visible) portion of the solar spectrum. Because a white roof strongly reflects both visible and near-infrared sunlight, a white roof will typically be cooler than a cool-colored roof.
The two basic characteristics that determine the “coolness” of a roof are solar reflectance (SR) and thermal emittance (TE). Both properties are rated on a scale from 0 to 1, where 1 is the most reflective or emissive. The CRRC measures these two properties for roofing products, both for the product’s initial values and after three years of outdoor exposure. The CRRC publishes the results on the online Rated Products Directory.
