Ans: Thermatek is a roof covering and surface treatment for special purpose. The purpose is to reduce the heating of the roof, which happens during hot summer days.

Ans: Thermatek products are made using unique materials which don’t get heated when exposed to sun. Thus when a surface is covered with Thermatek, the body or the building below the surface also doesn’t get heated.

Ans: On a hot summer afternoon If you walk bare foot on a normal surface it will burn your feet. The surface temperature goes above 70 Deg C in many cases. When the same surface is covered with Thermatek the temperature is lowered by 17 to 20 Deg C. The result is that a person can comfortably walk barefoot on the surface.

Ans: There are studies which confirm that for the top floor, 60 to 70% heat enters through the roof which has not been heat proofed. The result is unbearable conditions inside. The air conditioners are overloaded to maintain the temperature.

When the roof is covered with any Thermatek product, the heating of the roof is reduced by more than 50%. This results in lower temperature of the entire roof assembly by about 8 to 10 Deg C. Thus the inside of the building becomes comfortable. This is noticed easily by the air coming from overhead fan. The air from Ceiling fan will feel cooler when Thermatek is installed.

Ans: Thermatek offers broadly three product categories

  1. Ceramic Tiles
  2. Cement based Tiles
  3. Thermatek Paint.

  1. Thermatek Ceramic Heat Reflective Tiles: A tile made from unique materials developed by the founders of Thermatek. This give it the best Heat Reflective property unmatched in the world. The inert and strong ceramic material is chemically stable and long lasting. The high strength of the tiles make it a ideal surface for terraces. Aesthetically pleasing appearance and is easy to clean and maintain make it a natural choice for heat proofing.
  2. Thermatek Cement Heat Resistant TerraceTile: This is the first heat reflective tile in the world and was developed by the founder Mr. Ashok Ganpule.

Ans: Application of Thermatek products is after the final treatment of waterproofing of terrace or roof. Thermatek products do not interfere or affect the water proofing treatment. In fact the lowering of temperature of the surface will prolong the life of the water proofing chemicals. Also due to lowering of temperature the overall thermal expansion is reduced. The stress on the roof assembly also decreases.

Ans: Yes Thermatek products when applied with waterproofing treatment will give better bonding of the layers and chances of damage during application will reduce.
