Becker Specialty Corp.
BeckryTherm is high-tech, cool roof, organic coating technology. BeckryTherm features solar reflective, ceramic pigmentation to ensure Energy Star approved solar emissivity and reflectivity for maximum energy savings. BeckryTherm, Interior, is a low emissivity back-coating that creates a thermal barrier by reflecting heat into the direction from which it came. BeckryTherm is available in several polymers including super-durable polyester, silicone polyester and full strength PVDF.
PPG is a leading manufacturer of coil and extrusion coatings for architectural metals. Duranar coatings have more than 40 years of trusted performance on thousands of buildings around the world. Environmentally progressive Duranar Ultra-Cool, Duranar Vari-Cool and Superl II Ultra-Cool coatings deliver high-performance reflectivity that reduces heat build-up on vital applications such as metal roofing. The properties of these coatings help lessen energy and fossil fuel consumption, peak energy demand and the carbon footprint of any project. Ultra-Cool coatings are designed to comply with the Energy Star reflectance limits established for steep-slope or low-slope roofing products. These coatings are available in a full spectrum of colors and provide exceptional color stability, durability, chemical-resistance and flexibility.
Shepherd Color Company
Shepherd Color is a U.S. manufacturer of cool technology products, providing the lasting color in PVDF with Arctic pigments. Arctic pigments allow for the manufacture of colored roofing materials to meet the Energy Star and other regulatory and code requirements. In addition to energy savings, IR-reflective roofs transfer less heat to the surrounding air — reducing the Heat Island effect, therefore, leading to cooler cities and less smog. Energy savings and environmental benefits accrue, whether in metal, clay, concrete, fiber, cements or other roofing materials.
Spectrascape is a custom-color match offer available in a variety of paint systems. In addition, Spectrascape painted products come with a warranty backed by Steelscape. Spectrascape paints are high quality coatings that provide excellent performance over Steelscape’s Zincalume and TruZinc substrates. These field-proven finishes provide outstanding surface, adhesion, flexibility, and weathering performance. Spectrascape coatings provide excellent color, chalking, and fading characteristics and are provided with limited warranties. Spectrascape is available in almost any color to meet architect and building owner design and aesthetic requirements. In addition to the warranty, Spectrascape provides many advantages over traditional painted products from other suppliers. Spectrascape paints are produced at Steelscape’s facilities to customers’ color, gloss, and performance specifications.
Fluropon coatings are field-proven, exterior quality finishes that have protected and added visual appeal to metal for more than 40 years. These 70 percent PVDF resin-based Fluropon coating systems provide maximum resistance to chalking and fading. Use them on projects that require the best color retention available. Valspar also offers WeatherX, a world-class silicone polyester resin-based coating system, recognized for its remarkable color and gloss retention as well as its superior chalk resistance. This exceptional level of silicone polyester performance is due to a unique formulation that combines the durability of ceramic and other select inorganic pigments with the strength of a breakthrough proprietary silicone polyester resin. WeatherX coatings are highly resistant to stains, abrasion and metal marking. Both coatings are available in array of Cool Roof colors that will meet Energy Star, Title 24 and LEED guidelines.
