COMPARE TOPPS PRODUCTS TO INDUSTRY STANDARDS
Because all materials diminish with time, ENERGY STAR® provides two cool roof product rating measures:
- A Proven initial minimum cooling standards requirement for new products prior to exposure. This is what most manufactures will show you in their literature.
- More importantly, and often not mentioned, it also rates product performance after aging and constant exposure to the elements.
Topps Seal®—together with our other cool roof coating products—continues to exceed performance standards after aging, well beyond existing government standards. When comparing manufacturers, be sure to look for the after-aging results.
With Topps®, we consider performance after aging more important than when a product is new. New is a short-lived window of time when it comes to roof performance. Longer lasting performance matters much more. Topps® technology is built on 100% synthetic ingredients and has been carefully engineered to last.
ASTM - Acrylic vs. 100% rubber, water-free roof coatings
The chart below shows ASTM Miami/Dade standards (left column), a certification required for products to be used under the most demanding conditions of the tropics. The corresponding certified physical properties for Topps Seal® are in the right column.
Topps exceeds industry standards in every category. You'll see why we are one of the most trusted names in the roof coatings industry.
