Arkema Inc. to Introduce Latest Update of Kynar Aquatec® Cool White Roofing Savings Calculator at International Roofing Expo
The International Roofing Expo, which is being held March 1–3, 2017, serves as the go-to event for commercial and residential roofing professionals to stay abreast of market directions, trends and cutting-edge technology. Sponsored by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), this year’s event is expected to attract over 9,500 attendees and will host more than 470 exhibitors in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
At the show, Arkema Inc. will introduce version 5.0 of the Kynar Aquatec® cool white roofing savings calculator. This free, user-friendly mobile app will calculate the annual energy savings, cost savings and reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of a Kynar Aquatec® cool white roof coating versus an elastomeric acrylic coating. It will also display graphs of the 20-year energy savings, life-cycle cost and total carbon dioxide reduction. Among other enhancements, the updated calculator program includes new case studies, including recent total solar reflectance (TSR) measurements of the massive cool roof atop the MGM Grand Las Vegas after 10 years of service.
Stop by the Arkema exhibit (booth 1565) to learn more about the latest updates to the Kynar Aquatec® cool white roofing savings calculator, as well as the 10-year follow-up TSR study of the MGM Grand’s cool white roof. Information kits on cool white roofing and metal restoration will also be available, which include new architectural specifications, detailed information on the Kynar Aquatec® coating products and licensees, and much more.
