Many energy efficient reflective Kynar 500/Hylar 5000 Fluorocarbon coatings are formulated to meet a variety of local, regional and federal Green Design performance requirements including LEED and CRRC.

Energy efficient reflective Fluropon coatings are the preferred choice among environmentally responsible architects, building owners, and building manufacturers.

 

Ideal for roofing and siding panels on buildings that need to maximize energy efficiency and display a beautiful color finish....

Energy efficient radiant barrier reflective Fluropon coatings are field-proven, high performance exterior quality finishes designed to enhance the energy efficiency of buildings.

Cool roofing is a part of an interdependent system of exterior roofing surfaces, substrates, underlayment, configurations, ventilation, and insulation.

Reflective Fluropon coatings are available in a variety of colors.

Premium fluoropolymer coatings contain 70% Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000 resins and solar reflective pigments.

This powerful combination provides a durable color coating that resists heat absorption and enables the building to cool down faster. As a result, the air-conditioner does not run as much and energy consumption is decreased. All Fluropon reflective coatings have a minimum solar reflectance value of 0.25. The typical emittance value of these coatings is 0.85 to 0.90.

Energy efficient reflective roofing and Siding is ideal for use in:

  • Commercial Buildings
  • School Buildings
  • Retail Stores
  • Office Buildings

LEED - Product Data Sheet

MR Credit 4.1

 Recycled Content: 10%

1 Point

MR Credit 4.2

 Recycled Content: 20%

1 Point

The steel used in Flexospans Roof Panels contains an average post-consumer recycled content of 23.5%, and an average pre-consumer recycled content of 6.4%. These values are based on data from the Steel Recycling Institute publication Steel Takes LEED with Recycled Content, (January, 2006).

 


MR Credit 5.1

 Regional Materials: 10%

1 Point

MR Credit 5.2

 Regional Materials: 20%

1 Point

Flexospans roofing and siding panels are manufactured in Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania. All of Flexospan's panels may contribute to MR Credit 5.1 and MR Credit 5.2 if the project location is within a 500 mile radius of Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania.


MATERIALS & RESOURCES (MR)

Credit 4   Recycled Content  1-2 Possible Points

     According to U.S. Green Building Council LEED 2009 for New Construction and Major Renovations, the intent of this credit is To increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials. (LEED 2009 for New Construction and Major Renovations, Page 52).

     The steel used in Flexospans panels typically contains an average post consumer recycled content of 25.6%.  

     Because of unique project circumstances, it is the responsibility of your LEED project team to determine if your project is eligible for certification and whether Credit 4 for Recycled Content points will be available for the Flexospan product supplied to your particular project.


MATERIALS & RESOURCES (MR)

Credit 5   Regional Materials 1-2 Possible Points

     Flexospan wall and roof panels are manufactured at Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania. 

     Because of unique project circumstances, it is the responsibility of your LEED project team to determine if your project is eligible for certification and whether Credit 5 for Regional Materials will be available for the Flexospan product supplied to your particular project.
 

Indoor Environmental Quality:
Flexospan Roofing & Siding

 


EQ Credit 4.1

 Low-Emitting Materials:   Adhesives and Sealants

1 Point

This credit requires that the VOC content for adhesives and sealants must be less than the limits established by the South Coast Air Quality Management District, Rule #1168. The factory or field-applied sealant (Tremco JS-773) used with some panel profiles has a VOC content of (180 grams/liter), which is less than the maximum limit of 250 grams/liter established by this regulation for architectural sealants. Therefore, the Tremco JS-773 sealant meets the requirements of EQ Credit 4.1.


EQ Credit 4.2

 Low-Emitting Materials: Paints and Coatings

1 Point

1 Point Intent To reduce the quantity of indoor air contaminants that are odorous, irritating and/or harmful to the comfort and well-being of installers and occupants. Requirements Paints and coatings used on the interior of the building (i.e., inside of the weatherproofing system and applied onsite) must comply with the following criteria as applicable to the project scope1: n Architectural paints and coatings applied to interior walls and ceilings must not exceed the volatile organic compound (VOC) content limits established in Green Seal Standard GS-11, Paints, 1st Edition, May 20, 1993. n Anti-corrosive and anti-rust paints applied to interior ferrous substrates must not exceed the VOC content limit of 250 g/L established in Green Seal Standard GC-03, Anti-Corrosive Paints, 2nd Edition, January 7, 1997. n Clear wood finishes, floor coatings, stains, primers, and shellacs applied to interior elements mustl not exceed the VOC content limits established in South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Rule 1113, Architectural Coatings, rules in effect on January 1, 2004. Potential Technologies & Strategies Specify low-VOC paints and coatings in construction documents. Ensure that VOC limits are clearly stated in each section of the specifications where paints and coatings are addressed. Track the VOC content of all interior paints and coatings during construction.

ID Credit 1.x

 Innovation in Design: Cradle to Cradle Certification

1 Point

In early 2007, the U.S. Green Building Council established an ID Credit point for the use of products certified under the Cradle to Cradle Certification Program. This program, administered by MBDC (McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry), evaluates products and their manufacturing process on the basis of human/environmental impact, material reutilization, energy and water use, and social responsibility. A product that meets the certification criteria is designated as either a Silver, Gold, or Platinum level product and labeled as Cradle to Cradle Certified. Flexospans roofing and siding Panels are Cradle to Cradle Silver Certified.

For additional information regarding the use of Cradle to Cradle Certified products in the LEED certification process, consult the U.S. Green Building Council
