White roofs made of PVC can reflect three-quarters of the sun’s rays – usually far more – and emit 70 or more percent of the solar radiation absorbed by the building envelope. Thermoplastic white roofs have proven performance in all climates. They have protected and kept buildings cool in climates around the world for decades. Get the facts – bust the cool roofing myths.
