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.

Hi Ryan and welcome aboard.

No doubt we can learn from each other for sure, I am the proverbial student.  I have worked with one coating for 30 years and have been given many invitations to prove our coating works well.

We are one of those "Sonds too good to be true" kind of products.   Had to find ways our sales reps could overcome that big hurdle in their presentations to prospective customers.

 

I was the engineering rep that actually got dirty and had tp pick our coating out from under my fingernails almost every day. .

 

Hopefully we can show some others in this forum something they can use to help convince the homeowners radianr barriers are something they do need.

If the proof is in the pudding, you have to give them pudding.

This could get very interesting.

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!
