What are the benefits to using a Thermo Materials® fluid-applied membrane system?


Building Consultants, Architects and Engineers can specify a simple, green, sustainable solution that saves building owners and facility managers money, eases installation for contractors and satisfies Title 24 and LEED requirements.

A Thermo Materials® fluid-applied membrane system (reflective roof coating) cools and protects the roof surface. Benefits of a fluid-applied reflective membrane system include:

  • Reduces the carbon footprint of the building by reducing the CO2 emissions.
  • Are environmentally friendly (“green”).
  • Minimizes the environmental burden.
  • Results in reduced respiratory health risks and the risk of heat-related deaths, especially in a “Heat Island” area.
  • Slows premature aging of a roof due to high surface temperatures and UV degradation.
  • Reduces landfill materials – at least 10% of landfill waste is made up of roofing materials.
  • Saves on the cost of air conditioning resulting in lower energy costs overall of the building by reducing the peak electrical demand level.
  • Increases the effective “R” value of insulation.
  • Reduces the temperature inside the building it covers by 5-15 degrees.
  • Reduces the roof surface temperature by 20-60 degrees.
  • Creates a more comfortable environment in areas where there is no air conditioning.
  • Increases the efficiency of HVAC units.
  • Saves energy, both for the building owner, and for the utility supplier.

Reasons to use Thermo Materials® on your next project:

  • Thermo Materials® are formulated to last longer than most other coating restoration systems in the industry.
  • Thermo conforms to the guidelines set forth by the EPA and DOE under the Energy Star program.
  • In addition to Energy Star, Thermo liquid restoration products have approvals from UL and Miami-Dade County, and are listed with Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC).
  • Thermo Materials® systems add less than one pound per square foot, so the roof’s integrity remains sound.
  • Since 1948, Thermo has been providing solutions for difficult roofing conditions.
  • Virtual 24 hour support via our website providing technical documents, specifications and scope of work detail for each system.
  • Dedicated project and product support from our Texas headquarters.
  • Standard product warranty and system warranties up to 20 years depending on substrate.
