Aiming to strengthen the voice of the roof coatings industry, the Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA) and the Reflective Roof Coatings Institute (RRCI) have merged.

The combined association will be called the RCMA, using that group's existing logo and website, according to a joint announcement released Thursday (Jan. 1).


Founded in 1982, RCMA represents manufacturers of cold-applied coatings and cements for roofing and waterproofing, as well as industry suppliers of products, equipment and services.

“RRCI has been a leader on reflective roof coatings issues, and we look forward to their members’ expertise within RCMA,” said John Ferraro, RCMA executive director.

“This merger will go a long way to increase RCMA’s growth in both its membership and its recognition within the larger roofing industry.”

RCMA's mission is to advance, promote and expand the national and international market for roof coatings through education, outreach, technical advancement and advocacy.

Merger Details

“Bringing the two associations together will better position the roof coatings industry in the various legislative, regulatory, and building code development arenas that affect the two associations’ consolidated membership,” the organizations said.

The merger will also result in a more detailed and comprehensive industry shipment report.

Founded in 2005, RRCI promotes the benefits of reflective roof coatings in extending the life of roof systems while reducing energy consumption.

RCMA has made a number of changes to its committee and task force structure to accommodate the merger, the groups said.

For example, it has created a new RCMA Reflective Roof Coatings Institute that plans to develop resources for the industry, including technical bulletins, case studies, white papers and research.

A strong emphasis will be placed on outreach to the end-user of coatings products, the release notes.
