SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC"® Is Energy Star® Certified To Turn Your Existing Roof into an Energy Efficient Roof
"White" SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC"® has ENERGY STAR® Certification. Homes with an energy efficient roof, sometimes known as a "White" roof, are encouraged by Cool Communities, the Florida Solar Energy Center, the U S. Dept of Energy and many others as an economical way to reduce the "Urban Heat Island," reduce peak-load energy use and help our environment. As quoted on the Environmental News Network, the installation of an energy efficient roof can even help to slow global warming!
SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC"® is a cool roof coating that creates both a green and a user & environmentally-friendly, energy efficient roof. SOMAY's cool roof coating complies with all known current federal, state and local Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) regulations ... it has NO unpleasant odors (so much safer and nicer to have around and work with than hot, smelly tar kettles) ... it eliminates the expense, bother, noise, dust, dirt and mess of tearing off old roofs, which then require being hauled to landfills or dumps. The SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" cool roof coating will never have to be taken off to be disposed of, because SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" can last indefinitely - and you can clean up yourself and your application equipment with just soap and water.
SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC"® is a cool roof coating that acts as an excellent solar heat insulator. Based on independent laboratory research, SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" has a thermal conductivity rating similar to that of wood or insulating firebrick, and 1/100 that of steel, and 1/1000 that of aluminum! Conclusion: SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" is "considered a very good thermal insulator" ... i.e., it is a very poor conductor of heat and therefore, an ideal cool roof coating to make possible an energy efficient roof.
SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC"® is an excellent solar heat reflector. "White" SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" is a cool roof coating with a solar reflectance value of 84.5%, which is exceptionally high for a coating, leading to the conclusion that SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" is "superior in relation to all common building materials in the rejection of radiated heat" ... i.e., it is a very poor absorber of heat, and therefore, an ideal cool roof coating to make possible an energy efficient roof.
Emittance is a measure of how well a surface or material gives off (or emits) the energy it absorbs. All roof surfaces reflect some of the sun's energy and absorb some of the sun's energy as heat. High-emitting roof surfaces give off absorbed heat quickly & upward (and out of the building). Emittance is a number between 0 and 1, where 1 would be a theoretically perfect emitter. A rating of 0.845 is a very high rating and desirable to keep heat out of air conditioned space.
Thus, SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC"® is unique among building materials in that it is BOTH a very good THERMAL INSULATOR (Non-Conductor of Heat) and a superior THERMAL REFLECTOR (Non-Absorber of Heat).
Because of its unique energy efficient properties, SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC"® can turn your existing roof into an energy efficient roof that can significantly reduce air conditioning energy consumption. This was confirmed by additional independent research conducted by The Florida Solar Energy Center (Part of The State University System of Florida), as shown in Report No. FSEC-P-F-274-94. Results after the cool roof coating was applied to a variety of roof surfaces, including asphalt shingles, bitumen, tile roofs, etc. showed that the SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC:"
- Increased roof reflectivity over 234% (from .22 to .73).
- Reduced roof top surface temperatures over 35% (from 170° F. to 110° F. = 60° F. reduction).
- Reduced under roof (attic) temperatures over 31% (from 134° F. to 93° F. = 41° F. reduction equal to practically ambient temperature)
- Reduced Air Conditioning Energy Consumption over 43% (from 1478 W. to 838 W.). , and "savings would have been higher had the house had an air conditioner capable of meeting the cooling demands prior to the application of SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC." After the SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" application, the air conditioner CAN keep the house interior cool!"

SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" breathes to allow water vapor to escape and structures to breathe. For additional information on the breathability of SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC," please click here.
SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" has exceptional flexibility and elongation to accommodate the normal expansion and contraction of roof surfaces.
SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" will not support combustion.
We have been told by customers that SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" has even protected their shingle roofs from damage caused by hailstorms!
SOMAY "ROOF MASTIC" cool roof coating has been proven very effective for years on all well-drained, smooth roof surfaces, including asphalt shingles, asbestos shingles, fiberglass shingles, composition shingles, tar paper or roll roofing, concrete, including poured reinforced concrete sloped roofs, concrete tiles and barrel tiles, slate, plastic, rigid urethane foam insulation, smooth metal, galvanized metal, corrugated metal, smooth wood such as plywood sheathing, mobile home roofs, etc... We can turn roofs into energy efficient roofs!
