In a recent episode of Roofing Road Trips, Heidi J. Ellsworth speaks with David Edward, the commercial systems specialist from Polyglass. He shares exciting information about a coating for bitumen roofs that has set the bar for cool roofing companies — CURE Technology. This new coating is a layer of film that goes on top of their Polyfresko bitumen membranes.
CURE technology has been transformative for roofers and building owners alike. Polyglass has accomplished something special as there is nothing else like CURE Technology on the market today.
“Our cool roof solutions and coatings were introduced in around 2008,” says David. “We expanded into acrylic coatings and silicone coatings as well. And then also that morphed into a one-of-a-kind, highly innovative, thin film that goes on top of one of our premium membranes.”
CURE stands for “ceramic micro spheres, ultraviolet stabilizers, resins and environmentally friendly.” These technologies ensure that Polyfresko membranes are stain resistant, reflective, durable and sustainable. This can’t be said for every type of membrane on the market.
“I personally have witnessed a cool roof go onto a school building that had two chillers running prior to the cool roof going on. And after the cool roof was installed, they were able to shut down a chiller,” David recalls. The school saved on energy because CURE Technology naturally reflects heat. Not only does this save money for the school, but it also saves the environment.
The film is also resistant to spills or stains that might occur when working on top of the roof. Often, these types of stains can cosmetically damage other bitumen roofs, but not this one.
David helps us see why CURE Technology is an innovation worth investing in. Don’t pass up the chance to top your building with this cutting-edge technology!
