10 Year White Roof Coating
Energy Star Kote
10 Year Protection | Up To 35%Energy Savings | Energy Star Rated
Apply To most Roofing Materials | Pure White Color
Introducing a protective roof coating that can truly deliver when it comes to energy savings. The first of its kind, Energy Star Kote is a pure white coating that forms a sturdy-but-flexible protective membrane over rooftop surfaces, guarding roofs from the elements and simultaneously lowering internal temperatures – resulting in significant energy savings. Thanks to Energy Star Kote’s excellent reflectivity, this bright white coating is able to make a big difference in a building’s interior temperature, which translates into financial savings on lowered cooling costs. Application of Energy Star Kote can actually result in an energy savings of up to 35%. Now that’s a great savings! This pure white, 100% acrylic elastomeric coating forms a rubber membrane and can be applied over a variety of roof materials, including EPDM roofs, APP and SBS modified bitumen, old asphalt coatings, composition build-up, polyurethane foam, mobile homes and RV’s, metal roofs, concrete, wood, and more.

High Solids Formula | Maximum Film Build | Meets ASTM D6083
Energy Star Kote is available in 1 gallon pails and 5 gallon pails. The coverage range is about 50-75 square feet per gallon (per coat). Each 5 gallon pail will coat about 250-350 square feet of roof surface (per coat). Two coats are recommended. Energy Star Kote dries to the touch in 2-3 hours and a second coat can be applied after 6-8 hours. Note that Energy Star Kote is not recommended for use on shingled roofs, gravel, or dead level (flat) roof surfaces. Do not thin, freeze, or store at temperatures below 50°F (°C). Energy Star Kote is intended for exterior application only.
Available In 1 Gallon Pails & 5 Gallon Pails
Before Applying Energy Star Kote
When repairing areas with cracks or splits greater than 1/4”, it is recommended #403 Glass Fabric Repair be used to reinforce these areas. This material is white in color and is the preferred product for reinforcing when using Energy Star Kote 10 Year Roof Coating. For complete application and packaging details on this reinforcing fabric, please see the #403 web page.
Proper surface preparation is important to ensure optimal adhesion. Clean the roof of all debris, dust, and dirt. Remove any mildew, oil, grease, rust, or other foreign substances on the roof’s surface. Let fresh asphalt roofs cure for at least 4 weeks before applying Energy Star Kote. Scrub the roof down with a bleach solution (1 part chlorine bleach to 3 parts water) or roof cleaner. Rinse and let dry. For EPDM roofs, it is especially important to make sure all debris (including embedded clay) is removed if proper adhesion is to be achieved. On EPDM roofs, pressure wash the whole surface (using a wide tip to prevent tears) after scrubbing with bleach solution or roof cleaner. Let dry. To apply, thoroughly stir the pail (do not dilute!) and apply via soft brush, high pressure spraying (Tip Size: .021 to .025), or ¾” nap paint roller. Apply a second coat for added durability, warranty purposes, and optimal performance. Do not allow material to dry on tools; for clean-up, simply wash with water. The application temperature minimum is 60°F (15.5°C) and rising. If the temperature is predicted to drop below 60°F (15.5°C) within a 24 hour period, do not apply. Also, do not apply is rain is imminent or forecasted within a 24 hours period. If the area is one in which fog or dew is prone to accumulate in the evening, coat in the morning and complete by early afternoon in order to prevent wash off (which occurs if fog, dew, or rain moves in before the coating is dry)
