Insulating Coatings Corporation Supports Green Globes.
April 21– BINGHAMTON, NY- ICC, a world leader in seamless roofing and exterior coating technology, today announced that it has become a member of the Green Building Initiative.
Becoming a new member of the Green Building Initiative will allow ICC the ISO 9001-2008 manufacturer of ASTEC to promote green building standards and help companies qualify for the Green Globes certification by using the Astec Re-Ply Roofing Systems.
ICC will continue to support the green building industry with the Astec products.
The Astec Re-Ply Roofing systems have been promoting building practices that result in energy-efficient, healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings for over 25 years. The Astec Re-Ply products have been reducing landfill usage by eliminating the need for roof tear-offs through restoration of existing roofs.
ICC has been providing roofing solutions to businesses around the world on hundreds of millions of sq. ft. and they look forward to continuing to work directly with building owners, and facility / property managers to reduce capital expenditures and energy costs while extending the facility life cycle values of the property. ICC was even able to help US Army facilities in the Middle East reduce energy consumption by 26%.
Here is what others have said about Astec:
- “We can extend the life of existing roofing for a fraction of the cost of conventional roof replacement.” - Benjamin S., Col, EN Director, Dept. of the Army
- “The two biggest benefits to us are the prevention of water intrusion and the reflection of the sun so we can reduce our energy costs."
- Jack F., Vice Admiral (Retired), Naval Aviation Museum. The Naval Air Museum saved more than $300,000 over roof replacement.
The Astec Re-Ply Systems:
* Qualify for Green Globe Credits and meet ASHRAE 90.1 and 189.1-2009.
* Are an Energy Star Partner.
* Are ISO 9001-2008 Manufactured.
ICC develops and manufactures fluid-applied membrane systems for the sustainable restoration of roofs, walls, and other industrial surfaces. ASTEC elastomeric products and systems not only provide seamless water-proof and weather-tight barriers; they offer high reflectivity, emissivity, and dissipation of heat, while reducing UV light degradation.
ASTEC coatings and membranes add advantages to any substrate that can lead to substantial maintenance and energy cost reductions. All ASTEC systems qualify for Energy Star and Cool Roof programs. In addition, many ASTEC monolithic ceramic wall and roofing systems test well beyond typical standards for durability, pliability, longevity, wind resistance, abrasion resistance, and salt, chemical, and corrosives resistance, while reducing thermal shock damage and the high cost of temperature control.
