How do ThermCote/A-PW5, ThermCote/A-5 and A-10 outperform 4 inches of foam insulation?

The foam insulation is placed on the UNDER-SIDE of the roof, while ThermCote/A-5, ThermCote/A-10 and ThermCote/A-PW5 are applied to the TOP-SIDE of the roof. ProTek Ceramic Coatings reflect most of the solar heat, allowing little heat to conduct through the roof substrate. Surface temperature differences between a roof coated with our CRICSsm Ceramic Coating and an unpainted roof are 90 to 100 Degrees Fahrenheit or more on a day of just 85 to 90 Degrees F. The heat conducting through the surface of an uncoated roof is only slowed down by the RESISTER type bulk insulation and will eventually enter the interior. When the cool-down cycle starts (evenings and nights), that RESISTER type insulation will also keep the heat from exiting from inside the building, unless mechanically removed (cost of energy). ThermCotes outperform the insulation because of the Ceramic Content and its High Reflectivity and Emissivity Performance that allows the absorbed heat to be radiated away before it has a c
