Gateway Plaza Transformation: Experience ThermaCote’s Impact


ThermaCote® ceramic coating was applied to the roof of 3800 Gateway Plaza. The application is 30 mils to the roof surface. The roof surface continues to be no more than the ambient temperature when the performance was measured. At one point the surface temperature of a portion that was not coated reached 150˚F, while just a few feet away, the ThermaCote® surface was 98˚F. Comparisons are very impressive. ThermaCote® shows a performance difference on the same day of 20˚ better than any of the other surfaces, including the “cool roof” technology applied to Building 8 where the coated portion reached 126˚F and the walk pads not coated were over 140˚F.
