Reducing Heatload with BioPCmat
Plotted above is measured data from our factory roof during the summer. The data represented by the blue line shows the roof temperature without bioPCmat while the orange line shows the area with bioPCmat installed. The roof with bioPCmat was 37.3 degrees cooler during peak hours in afternon. We were able to maintain a cooler temperature in the area controlled with bioPCmat during peak hours while maintaining a more stable overall temperature. The thermocouple data for the roof membrane shows that the bioPCmat reduced roof temperatures significantly and changed the emissivity of the surface. BioPCmat enhanced the roof increasing the building's comfort of the occupants while reducing the need for cooling, prolonging the life of the roof membrane and cooling down our solar panels allowing them to operate more efficiently. The bioPCmat was able to reduce HVAC loads, increase comfort, prolong the life of the roof membrane and save energy.
