DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. -- Polyglass U.S.A., Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of modified bitumen membranes and roof coatings in the commercial and residential roofing industry, has had two more roof products qualified by ENERGY STAR for long-term reflective performance. Newly listed POLYBRITE® 70 and PG 700 are highly-reflective roof coatings and join POLYKOOL® Self Adhered modified bitumen membrane on the ENERGY STAR list as part of Polyglass' Kool Roof Solutions™ - a group of Polyglass products designed with the environment in mind.

POLYBRITE 70 and PG 700 are premium-grade, bright white, water-based elastomeric coatings which cure to form a seamless membrane when applied properly applied over the entire roof area. Both products offer the unique ability to extend the life cycle of new and existing roof systems, in addition to keeping the surface cool, providing protection from ultraviolet sun and other weather exposures.

POLYBRITE 70 and PG 700 also meet Cool Roof Rating Council standards for solar reflectance and thermal emittance and are California Title 24 compliant. POLYBRITE 70 is also fire-rated with its approvals listed in Factory Mutual and Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. To be listed by ENERGY STAR requires products to have an initial solar reflectivity of 65. After that is achieved, a product must maintain a reflectivity of 50 after three years of exposure to the elements. Both POLYBRITE 70 and PG 700 achieved an initial solar reflectivity of 87 and a three year solar reflectivity of 75.

"We are thrilled to have ENERGY STAR recognize POLYBRITE 70 and PG 700 for their long-term performance," said Polyglass National Product Manager - Coatings, John Stubblefield. "Polyglass is committed to developing advanced, value-added roofing solutions. These products not only extend the useful life of the roof, but can also reduce energy costs by decreasing the roof surface temperature."
