Temperature tests were performed on trailer 573 prior to, and after applying 40 mils of ThermaCote to the roof of the trailer. The test was conducted to determine the benefit of coating the roofs of trailers to enhance cooling, therefore saving product and reducing fuel consumption.
The uncoated roof top reached a temperature of 170°F/76.66°C. The coated roof top reached a temperature of 84°F/28.89°C
The coated trailer reached zero degrees 26% faster than the uncoated trailer.
The coated trailer used 41% less fuel for the entire test
