APV Engineered Coatings® announced recently that their cool roof coating system, APV eCoolRoof™, was granted registered trademark status by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. APV eCoolRoof is comprised of a Kynar Aquatec® resin-based topcoat and an elastomeric acrylic basecoat, which meets the high energy savings demands of property owners through its high, sustaining reflectivity values.
Along with high reflectivity, the eco-friendly APV eCoolRoof has a low VOC content and resists ultraviolet (UV) degradation, chalking, water pickup, dirt pickup, staining, chemicals and corrosion, algae and fungal growth along with abrasion. Made in Ohio, the product increases the comfort level of the interior of a structure by providing lower indoor temperatures, which reduces the amount of energy used from cooling systems.
The Kynar Aquatec resin used in APV eCoolRoof is a tough, engineered thermoplastic offering a unique balance of properties to withstand harsh thermal, chemical and UV environmental conditions. Manufactured by Arkema Inc., the resin provides APV eCoolRoof the ability to sustain the product’s reflective properties and resist against erosion, abrasions, dirt and the growth of mold and mildew.
