The administration at GCC, wanted to restore the roofs and bring them back to performing without having to strip off the original cementitious layer which would have considerably added to the cost. Any coating on cementitious material would also need substantial and permanent adhesion and flexible, stretch properties as well as the ability for itself then to provide the substrate surface for the cool coating.

Multi-storey car parks in the United States date back to 1918 when what is believed to have been the first was built at the Hotel La Salle at 215 West Washington Street in the West Loop area of downtown Chicago, Illinois.
Phoenix, AZ. “It’s all about adhesion, both with the coating itself and the new generation of cool topcoats.
