  3. 3. EPOX-Z NRGEPOX-Z NRG • Who is EPOX-Z Corporation? • EPOX-Z Corporation is a privately held manufacturer and worldwide distributor of 100 % solids, solvent-free, zero VOC, epoxy-based coatings that are used for surface protection in a range of markets including roof restoration, marine, power generation, gas transmission, and wastewater treatment facilities. EPOX-Z’s coatings have exceptional surface tolerance and provide a high level of resistance to chemicals and moisture.
  4. 4. EPOX-Z NRGEPOX-Z NRG Why so much interest in Cool Roofs ? COOL ROOFS EQUATE TO BIG BENEFITS TO THE BUILDING OWNER AND THE ENVIRONMENT
  5. 5. EPOX-Z NRG USER BENEFITSEPOX-Z NRG USER BENEFITS Improved Comfort because the building’s interior is subject to less thermal flux and stays cooler during the warm season Reduced Energy Costs because of reduced air-conditioning Longer AC unit life resulting from decreased air-conditioning loads Increased Roof Longevity due to reduced thermal flux of the roof
  6. 6. EPOX-Z NRG ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITSEPOX-Z NRG ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS Cool roofs are distinguished among energy conservation measures because of the many environmental benefits they can provide. This is attributed to the fact that they combat the urban heat island effect The urban heat island effect is a phenomenon that is characterized by a measured increase in the ambient air temperature in cities over their surrounding rural areas. This is due to roofs and other non-reflective surfaces that absorb and trap solar radiation — or heat The excess trapped heat is gradually released to the ambient air throughout the day, evening and nighttime hours, warming up the urban core round the clock. The effect results in an environmentally negative and spiraling impact, including:
  7. 7. EPOX-Z NRG MITIGATESEPOX-Z NRG MITIGATES Increased demand for air-conditioning in both air-conditioned and un-conditioned buildings, thus increasing the potential for the installation of air-conditioners in buildings that currently don’t need them Increased greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming, released as a result of fossil fuel generated electricity to power air conditioners Increased smog formation.

  9. 9. EPOX-Z NRG – HOW IT WORKSEPOX-Z NRG – HOW IT WORKS Two thermal properties that characterize cool roofs are solar reflectance and thermal emittance A cool roof minimizes the solar heat gain of a building by first reflecting incoming radiation and then by quickly re-emitting the remaining absorbed portion As a result, the cool roof stays cooler than a traditional roof of similar construction

  11. 11. EPOX-Z NRG – IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU?EPOX-Z NRG – IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU? Have you defined your requirements for your cool roof projects? The Basic Questions to Ask • Does this Cool Roof Coating meet the DOE Requirements? • What is its weatherability/durability? • What is the testing data?
  12. 12. EPOX-Z NRGEPOX-Z NRG PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICSPERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS To be effective any cool roof coating must first act as a barrier to prevent chemicals and moisture from reaching the roof surface In general, the more permeable a coating is to the passage of moisture as is typical of many water-reducible coatings, the greater its affinity for water and the greater the increase in transmission when tested in and exposed to high humidities …ASTM D 1653 Performance characteristics of coatings can be evaluated by laboratory protocol Specifically ASTMD 1653 for Permeability, ASTM D 714 for blistering and ASTM D 4214 for degradation or chalking
  13. 13. EPOX-Z NRGEPOX-Z NRG PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICSPERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS ASTM D 714:Resistance to chemical or water penetration. Ratings are 1-10 with10 representing no visible signs of blistering which is the highest/best rating ASTM D 659 with the standard having four ratings: No. 2 (severe chalking), No. 4 (moderate to severe chalking), No. 6 (moderate chalking), and No. 8 (light chalking). ASTM D 1653 Permeability Coatings with ratings <1 are considered impermiable
  14. 14. EPOX-Z NRG RESISTANCE TO ATTACKEPOX-Z NRG RESISTANCE TO ATTACK • The average pH of rainfall in New York State ranges from 4.0 to 4.5, which is up to 30 times more acidic than "normal." • Acid deposition also damages building materials by eroding the ornamental facades, statuary and other vulnerable edifices that are an important part of our heritage.

  16. 16. EPOX-Z NRG – ISSUES TO AVOIDEPOX-Z NRG – ISSUES TO AVOID THE MAJORITY OF COATINGS USE WATER OR VOC LADEN SOLVENTS AS THE VEHICLE TO MAINTAIN THE COATING IN A LIQUID STATE SO THAT IT CAN BE TRANSFERRED FROM THE CONTAINER TO THE SURFACE.THE DRYING PROCESS RELIES ON SOLVENT OR WATER EVAPORATION VOC’S ARE HARMFUL TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND ARE ALSO DETRIMENTAL TO THE COATING’S PERFORMANCE. THESE COATINGS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ALLOW THE SOLVENTS OR WATER TO FULLY EVAPORATE RESULTING IN BLISTERS,VOIDS, PINHOLES OR SOFT SPOTS IN THE COATING
  17. 17. FAILURES TO AVOIDFAILURES TO AVOID While coating failures may occur for number of reasons, they can generally be categorized into three main groupings: 1.Coating manufacturer related or caused 2.Owner/specifier related or caused 3.Coating applicator related or caused
