VFI and the Cool Roof Rating Council

Did you know that Volatile Free, Inc. is a member of the Cool Roof Rating Council?

Currently, VFI has three products that qualify for the CRRC rating. These include:

  • SEALGUARD VFI-990 SILICONE
  • SEALGUARD VFI-991 SILICONE
  • VFI-605 Acrylic Top Coat

How to qualify
VFI had the solar reflectance and thermal resistance tested to qualify each product. These are rated on a scale from 0 to 1, where 1 is the most reflective or emissive. The CRRC measures these two properties for roofing products, both for the product’s initial values and after three years of outdoor exposure. See image below:

Cool Roof benefits for Building Owners

A cool roof will reduce overall utility costs. Your building will remain much cooler thus decreases your use of air conditioning during the hot summer months. The incorporation of VFI’s cool roof coatings will reduce maintenance costs and extend the overall roof life. The average energy savings range from 7-15% of total cooling costs.

The diagram above shows the sun hitting a cool roof substrate. The roof will absorb some of the heat, but solar reflectance and thermal emittance will come into play projecting the heat out.

VFI’s cool roof coatings can be applied on Metal, Mod Bit/BUR, Single-ply and over our VFI-727 Roofing Foam.

Contact VFI today for more information! You could avoid a costly roof tear off and simply re-coat with our Silicone or Acrylic Roof Coatings.
