Researchers have discovered that the coating on roofs of commercial and private buildings can reduce heat loss by as much as 80% when used in conjunction with the use of a new technology called roof coating technology.
A new study published in the Journal of Environmental Engineering showed that the protective coating can prevent heat from escaping from a building when temperatures are expected to be above 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Wisconsin and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The team used a combination of heat and air conditioning to study how the coating effect is achieved.
The research revealed that the protection of the building from heat loss can decrease the amount of heat that is absorbed into the building and thereby contribute to the heat loss of buildings.
In addition, the coating could reduce the amount that is lost to the environment.
The coating is applied to the exterior surface of the roof, where heat is absorbed by the coating.
The heat is then transferred into the interior air, which is heated by the exterior air and released to the outside air.
The air is then sucked out of the air ducts.
When the heat of the interior is removed, the air becomes cool again.
The researchers then tested the protective coatings effectiveness against the heat, humidity and air temperature.
The findings showed that a layer of roof coating on a building’s exterior had a significant effect on the amount heat that was transferred to the building, and the amount absorbed.
This result was consistent with previous research, and indicates that the layer of the coating was able to significantly reduce the heat absorbed by a building.
“Our findings suggest that the surface of a building can be treated with heat-reflective materials to increase the amount and direction of heat absorbed and reduce the evaporation of heat,” said Dr. Andrew Wiegert, an assistant professor in the College of Engineering.
“These materials may also reduce heat dissipation, which can help mitigate heat loss from buildings when temperatures exceed 80 degrees F (24 degrees C).”
It is important to note that the findings of this study apply only to buildings that have been constructed on concrete.
The effect is not applicable to any other materials or to other buildings that are structurally constructed with wood or other non-concrete materials.
“The study also revealed that this coating had the same protective effect on humidity and temperature as the heat-resistant coating used on the exterior of buildings and was effective in preventing water vapor condensation in buildings.
“The University of Minnesota is one of the largest suppliers of roof coatings to major commercial and public buildings worldwide. “
We have a long history of using this technology in the U., and we’re excited to see it take off here,” said Wieget.
“The University of Minnesota is one of the largest suppliers of roof coatings to major commercial and public buildings worldwide.
We are committed to helping other companies and universities to find new applications for this technology.”
The U-Men are also the largest supplier of commercial roofs to large residential, commercial and industrial buildings.
“In addition to the benefits of the material, roof coating is very energy efficient, so the material can be used in buildings where heating or cooling is critical,” said Paul Sarno, a senior associate research scientist at the U and a co-author of the study.
“Rooftops are hot places, and many buildings need to keep cool.
Using this technology can help reduce these costs by helping keep the building’s air and heat in check.”
The research team is working on further development of the technology, which has the potential to be used for more than just commercial applications.
Additional research is planned in this area.
