DuRock Tiocoat white reflective roof coating

October 8, 2011 - At Greenbuild, Woodbridge, Ont.-based DuRock exhibited Tiocoat—a white reflective roof coating promising enhanced energy efficiency performance for flat roofs. Tiocoat is an elastomeric coating that protects and extends the life of new and existing roof systems by reflecting over 89% of the sun’s UV rays. Tiocoat is also LEED-approved for SS Cr: 7.2 (Intent to Reduce the Heat-Island Effect), and is Energy Star accredited. The coating reduces heat absorption, thermal shock and expansion/contraction of the roofing membrane, all of which extends the life of the roofing system. The company says that using Tiocoat will reduce building cooling costs by 20% to 30%. Tiocoat can be applied to existing roof substrates such as BUR, mod-bit, concrete, metal and asphalt.
