LAS VEGAS - Polyglass USA, Inc., a leading roofing manufacturer in the commercial and residential roofing industry, has launched a new and improved version of its white, reflective Polykool modified bitumen membrane. This next generation of Polykool still features incredible reflectivity and emissivity, and patented dual-compound, self-adhering ADESO® Technology, as well as a stronger surface.

Proven to be self cleaning and anti-staining, Polykool is designed for even the harshest conditions. Some of those conditions can be found on buildings such as those used by fast-food chains, airports and educational facilities - all of which have been recently installed across the United States. The facility managers of those buildings chose Polykool for their roofs because of the dual benefit of energy efficiency and durability. Roofs can accumulate a lot of residue, and Polykool is so easy to clean and maintain it allows the building owner to continue to have a pristine, white, reflective roof.

Polykool self-adhered membranes are listed by both Energy Star® and CRRC® (Cool Roof Rating Council) with a reflectivity of 0.76 and a thermal emissivity of 0.80, directly aiding in the reduction of building energy costs and heat island effect. Polykool is compliant with California’s Title 24 Energy Efficiency Building Standards and can be used to gain credits with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), administered by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

Polykool is designed to be installed with Polykool Tape™, a sealing tape used for roof seams and flashings. Polykool Tape features a technology that consists of a 100 percent solid formulation of synthetic resins, thermoplastic and non-curing rubber with a built-in primer and is resistant to contaminants on the roof surface. Applying Polykool Tape provides a finished monolithic appearance.
