NOTE : During the initial reading the coating of SUPERTHERM ® which cures by evaporation still had moisture in the coating which acted as a conductor as opposed to a resistor ( R ). <SUPERTHERM ® contains 8% water when first applied. The Canadian Roofing Association performed a study and determined that just 1% - 1.5% moisture content reduces the R value in bulk insulations by over 35%. As the coating of SUPERTHERM ® cured down and the moisture content decreased the performance improved.
TEMPERATURE READINGS: 05/15/01 ( 11 days after being applied even though the Tech Information states that the coating cures out completely in 14 days @ 70°F ambient with a relative humidity of < 70% )
NOTE : A greater reduction in surface temperature can be achieved by adding additional mils.
