This project of painting the streets white was brought up last year in May. The preliminary testing showed the reduction of temperature on roadways by 10 degrees. This project allows the application of a light gray colored product called CoolSeal. The product is being manufactured by a company called GuardTop.

CoolSeal, like any other common seal coating material is applied on asphalt surfaces. This allows the surface of the applied area to be protected and maintain its quality and longevity for long period. GuardTop released a post on their website about CoolSeal,

“While most type of seal coat materials are polymer based, our CoolSeal is water based, asphalt emulsion.

Each of this seal coat can last up to period of 7 years but it is still very costly. The cost of one mile coating is roughly around 40,000 dollars.

CoolSeal has already passed the California’s two test related to water traction; skid test and slip test. According to the street departments report, 50 microns thick two seal coats are applied on asphalt roadway or the slurry sealed asphalt roadway.

According to officials, by reducing the temperature of streets, it will also be helpful in reducing temperature o the surrounding neighborhood. Due to numerous street ways and freeways, Los Angeles suffers from the heat island effect. This effect results in urban areas to experience more heat as compared to its rural areas.

The project is being used by the Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti who might be running for the US president seat in 2020. This project is his overall plan to fight against the greenhouse gas emission effect to bring t lower than 45 percent by 2025.
