626G Paragon® RCap™ Reflective Cap Sheet
Features & Benefits
626G Paragon® RCap™ is a fire-rated, highly reflective mineral cap sheet and manufactured to be the surface membrane in many Malarkey high-performance and fire-rated, SBS polymer modified roofing systems. Paragon® RCap™ is applied with hot mopping asphalt, SEBS mopping asphalt, cold process adhesives, or torch. It is CRRC-listed and can be used to comply with CEC Title 24, Part 6 Cool Roof Requirements.
Please consult Malarkey's Technical Services Department for approval of roof systems.
Paragon® RCap™ is manufactured on a non-woven fiberglass mat, impregnated and coated with a high quality, SBS polymer modified asphalt saturant that is stabilized with fire-retardant compounds. Paragon® RCap™ is surfaced with reflective granules for ultraviolet protection, weatherability, and solar reflectance.
626G Paragon® RCap™ is listed in the CRRC directory, meeting the requirements of the California Title 24, Part 6 and allowing for overall energy savings due to the solar reflectance of the cap sheet.
626G Paragon® RCap™ Benefits:
• Reducing energy use: A cool roof transfers less heat to the entire building, allowing the structure to stay cool and uses less energy for air conditioning.
• Reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions: Lowering energy use for cool roofs can decrease the production of associated air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
• Improved comfort: Cool roofs can reduce the overall air temperatures inside buildings with and without air conditioning.
Cool Roof Rating Council ratings are determined for a fixed set of conditions and may not be appropriate for determining seasonal energy performance. The actual effect of solar reflectance and thermal emittance on building performance may vary.
Manufacturer of product stipulates that these ratings were determined in accordance with the applicable Cool Roof Rating Council procedures.
