Imagine a coating that can lower your operating costs by protecting against heat transfer and erosion.  In this video, Matt Hoots of Sawhorse, Inc. interviews Tommy Sharp with Rate It Green Member Company ThermaCote.  Thermacote is a lightweight, waterproof, high-performance ceramic insulating coating/weather barrier that stays close to the ambient temperature when exposed to heat.  Thermacote creates a thermal envelope and seal envelope and is available in a range of cool colors that look just like flat latex paint when dry and yet don’t absorb UV light or heat.  ThermaCote is Certified Green to California’s standard (DHS 01350) for indoor air quality in classrooms and offices, is an ENERGY STAR qualified product, a CRRC (Cool Roof Rating Council) “Rated” product, and is also a UL® Classified product with a 0-Flame spread.
