NanoTech Materials, Inc., a provider of climate-resilient materials, announced on Tuesday a collaboration with Cool Roof Coating Systems, LLC, a subsidiary of Tesson Roofing in the Grand Canyon State, to combat high indoor temperatures in the all-consuming heat that is summer in Arizona.

In a Jan. 23 news release outlining the partnership, Cool Roof Coating Systems will provide NanoTech Cool Roof Coat installation of its heat-resistant coating to roof restoration customers in Arizona; NanoTech Cool Roof Coat has positioned itself as an alternative to capital-intensive roof replacement. 

NanoTech’s Cool Roof Coat is a highly durable, elastic, polymeric roof remediation solution with heat-rejection technology that “delivers significant year-over-year savings in operating costs,” the company said. Roof restoration with NanoTech Cool Roof Coat is available nationwide through certified installers.

Based on the heat-rejection properties of the NanoTech Insulative Ceramic Particle, the company says its Cool Roof Coat product cuts indoor temperatures by 25-30°F, slashing carbon emissions by 76 tons yearly in a 25,000-square-foot building. NanoTech added that its Cool Roof Coat provides waterproofing and resistance to hail and wind, delivering up to 96% cool roof performance after 10 years.

"Put simply, the heat-rejection performance of NanoTech Cool Roof Coat is so compelling that Tesson decided to form an Arizona-based company to tackle one of the hottest markets in the U.S. directly," said Brett Tesson, president at Cool Roof Coating Systems. 

"During my two decades in the roofing industry, NanoTech Cool Roof Coat has been, by far, the most game-changing product for the roof restoration business because it allows us to coat, waterproof, and protect while adding unprecedented savings in HVAC cooling for our customers,” Tesson added. 

The joint endeavor also aims to reduce carbon emissions by “…transforming traditional roofs into environmentally responsible and energy-efficient surfaces,” contributing to a greener future.

"[T]he team at Tesson is among the very best in the roof restoration market, which made a joint initiative in the extreme heat and intense Arizona sun a natural fit," said Mike Francis, CEO and founder at NanoTech Materials, Inc. 

"As a direct-to-installer product, we [collaborate] with highly qualified contractors [and] I am delighted at the founding of Cool Roof Coating Systems to bring a new level of sustainability to Arizona,” Francis added. “Our vision at NanoTech is to transform sustainability in the built environment, starting with one of the biggest energy drains and sources of carbon emissions, one roof at a time."
