The act of coating a surface or substrate with ThermaCote® helps that surface to resist absorption of heat caused by changes in temperature or exposure to direct sunlight. As you know, asphalt black tops can become upwards of 120 degrees F on even a moderately sunny day. ThermaCote® can be the solution for reducing the surface temperature while combating the common issue of the of the Urban Heat Island Effect in residential areas. ThermaCote® adds traction for streets and parking structures without the addition of aggregate materials. This gives our coating the special ability to maintain a smooth finish when applied, while reducing skid and slips simultaneously. When tested in wet conditions, ThermaCote® improves the safety of regular asphalt and concrete surfaces and is proven safe for vehicular and pedestrian traffic in accordance with the slip and skid resistance standard of California (ASTM C1028 and California Test 342). ThermaCote® is not slippery when wet!
At 5.3 g/l, ThermaCote® has an exceptionally low Volatile Organic Compound makeup and is certified for indoor air quality within classrooms and offices ThermaCote® is composed of over 80% solids which means that, not only will the thickness remain more accurate wet to dry, there is also very little material that can be evaporated. Manufacturing green products in order to reduce our global footprint is a priority at ThermaCote, Inc.
