West Seneca, N.Y.— Kemper System America, Inc. will demonstrate how to apply one of its new liquid-applied Cool Roof systems from the roof deck up at IRE 2018 in New Orleans in on Feb. 6 and 7 at 2:15 p.m. (Booth #2829), and several times a day Feb. 6-8 at Kemper System Booth #425.

The complete, multi-layer assembly will include: rigid polyisocyanurate insulation, cement cover board, joint sealant, primer and reflective polyurethane membrane roofing. The demo will feature the odor-free Kemperol® Reflect 2K-FR Cool Roof system with a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 110, and the versatile new Kempertec® odor-free joint sealant, ideal for filling cover board joints up to a ½ inch wide.

The reinforced membrane system is one of four liquid-applied cool roofs now available from Kemper System. The others include two new cost-effective elastomer-based roof coatings to be featured for the first time at IRE:

  • Roof Guardian® RG-170 (SRI 109) — a white acrylic elastomeric roof coating ideal for prolonging the life of many types of roofing assemblies
  • Roof Guardian® RG-180 — a fibered white acrylic elastomeric roof (SRI 108) ideal for metal, bituminous cap sheets, single-ply and other approved surfaces.

Both are ENERGY STAR® and CRRC rated. The other Cool Roof system is Kemperol® AC Speed FR (SRI 108), a rapid-drying poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA) reinforced membrane system, capable of same-day application. Kemper System’s Class A fire-rated Cool Roofs offer among the highest SRI ratings in the industry to help reduce building cooling requirements.
