Montreal-based Intertape Polymer Group® Inc., manufacturer of woven, coated products, received a listing for IPG’s NovaShield® 400 series on the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) Rated-Products Directory.
The council requires two properties—solar reflectance and thermal emittance—to be measured by an independent accredited lab. It then simulates the aging process in a lab for three years and retests the aged products. In solar reflectance, NovaShield 400 FRU88X-6 scored 0.76 on a scale of 0 to 1 (1 being the best), while NovaShield 400 RU88X-6 scored 0.72. California has the nation’s most stringent regulation compliance at 0.63.
