Green Technology and Saving Energy Now Include Using Recycled Plate Glass on the Roof of Your Home

PALM COAST, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/22/07 -- Who would have ever thought that using recycled plate glass on the roof of your home could help you save money on your energy bill -- and play a role in restoring and extending the life of your roof?

Vincent R. Valles, Sr., who developed the technology and who is also the founder of Florida-based Dur-A-Shield International, Inc., says it makes a lot of sense to grind up plate glass and add it to Dur-A-Shield's product that is already used to protect roofs.

"Solar reflection is very high because of the glass," Valles says. "Energy conservation and savings are important to our Nation's future."

The glass, ground to an almost powder-like substance, works in conjunction with the Dur-A-Shield coating, which forms a clear hard shield to extend the life of the roof and prevent growth or re-growth of mold, mildew and fungus.

The glass also adds even more tensile strength to the Dur-A-Shield coating, and that offers greater protection from wind damage to the shingles. Dur-A-Shield with the glass is applied after workers clean the roof with another specially formulated Dur-A-Shield product.

The benefits of using recycled glass and Dur-A-Shield:

--  Restores the look of the asphalt shingle roof
--  Saves energy
--  Saves maintenance costs and time
--  Extends the life of the roof
--  Won't crack, peel or discolor
--  Environmentally safe
--  Intelligent green technology
--  Affordable

Dur-A-Shield, which is based in Palm Coast, Fla., was established in 1991 and is long-known for its products that restore, protect and beautify roofs and other exterior surfaces such as siding, including vinyl, stucco, painted wood, aluminum and steel.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
