Cool Roofing Solution

Sustainability is the need of time and not because it’s a brand new idea. It is gaining recognition because it is becoming clear that living sustainable lives is just something we “should” do for the environment. We must do it as it has become a prerequisite for the ecosystem to preserve our qualities of life through the use of sustainable materials. A cost reduction and extended life-span seem reason enough to convince anyone into building a sustainable home. But what sort of materials are used to make a sustainable home last so long and make it so cost-efficient is a very pivotal question. Especially elements such as tiles and paints. These two elements are vital in conserving energy and saving money in the long run.  Let’s analyse the market potential of each of these products in India.

Thermatek thread binds them both

As we strive for high-performing cool roofing system, we should ask ourself how mixed products fit together to assure functional harmony and maximize performance.  Such synergetic benefits may well result from the combined application of THERMATEK® products. Thermatek is the World’s first Cool Roof Tile, introduced way back in 2003, when the concept and advantages of cool roofs was not known worldwide.

ISHAAN INDUSTRIES provides you with access to a wide range of complementary products for thermal comfort, viz., THERMATEK® HEAT RESISTANT TERRACE TILES, THERMATEK® COOL MORTAR and THERMATEK® Colored Heat Reflective Paint .

Product Variability:

Every complimentary product has gone through a rigorous qualification process before being added to the company’s catalogue and as a result, is assured to support ready. You can be assured of shorter lead times through their well-defined supply chains with regional contacts through which you can order and procure your total THERMATEK® products.

THERMATEK® Heat Resistant Terrace Tile is the core of ISHAAN brand of products.  It is their signature product that not only replicates the benefits of conventional cool roofing product but also incorporates new and improved properties and attributes with major advantages for buildings and homes which suffer daily barrages of solar radiation and absorption through roofs. This super-strong and multi-component tile is known for its cool attribute.  It is the latest generation of cool roofing – functional, durable and ideally suited to your special projects and homes.  Used in new construction, it allows you to minimize substructure cost from the initial planning stages.  This means substantial construction cost savings.  On renovation projects, it can often be applied directly to existing terrace sans brick jelly concrete/brick bat coba to provide a long-lasting and heat resistant cover.

The product has won public approval.  Field assessment of roof systems with THERMATEK® establishes not only existing performance attributes but also shows that the physical properties of the 30+ evaluated roofs in hot climatic zones were positive regardless of the age of installation and that these properties point to the longevity of the product.

All these facts significantly expand your grasp of the added value of using THERMATEK®, challenge other cool roof products such as reflective coatings, foam insulators and porous insulators and ask you by a comparative study to see the big picture by selecting the right one for your need.

Heat resistant paint and heat resistant floor tiles are the new applications in today’s world in respective segments. Exterior paint is being used for heat reflective purpose and tiles are being used to stop heat ingress into the building. Both are contributing towards energy efficient envelopes. Apart from aesthetic, both are being used for their utility.

The Thermatek Edge

THERMATEK® is a key in intercepting skyrocketing temperatures from penetrating through the roof into the building as heat.

Under very clear skies, up to 1200 w/m2 of solar radiation reaches the rooftop. The resultant roof temperature can rise above ambient air temperatures by as much as 32° C. Imagine ordinary household hair dryers every 10 feet in both directions of your two-dimensional array: that is the intensity of the sun’s energy incident upon a rooftop.  The radiation the roofs capture from the sun ingresses to the building interior.  Using THERMATEK® alleviates solar heating loads inside the building which in turn lowers electricity requirements.  In other words, the interactive activities of occupants with the THERMATEK® installed building to maximize comfort empower the resident and return to him the control over his cooling costs and roof longevity.

Some of the advantages of THERMATEK®  are:

  • The best means to counteract the deleterious effects of high heat levels
  • The push to lower temperature inside home for thermal comfort
  • Proven energy efficiency, environmental responsibility, heat resistance, and long-term performance

Savings on cooling costs

The way to extend the life of roofs, since a cooler roof would tend to undergo less expansion, and thus experience less wear and tear under the sun

User-friendly installation

Very cost effective over time because it outlasts conventional roofing and requires little maintenance.
