The RCC Classroom (Radiant Control Coatings)

Information

The RCC Classroom (Radiant Control Coatings)

A group where energy professionals can learn about all the different energy saving aspects of RCCs.  I have worked with one particular RCC for 30 years.  I have amassed alot of information I can share.  Everyone knows, accepts and understands how RCCs work as a 'Cool Roof' coating.  However, that seems to be where the knowledge on these products different energy saving applications abruptly stops.  I hope to change that with this group. 

There are over 300 protective coatings out there and they all say they save energy. Out of nearly 4,000 members of this forum, only one has stepped up and said he works with an RCC as well.  I hope others will add their experiences with these coatings as well.

Please understand that I do not place myself above or think I am smarter than ANYONE with what I know.  I am an authority on the coating I have worked with and I am willing to share that experience.

Great idea.  Our company has a radiant control coating product so I think we can definitely benefit from this discussion.  Maybe add a little too!
