WHO WE AREour background


In 2001 the founding members of CCJJ LLC were introduced to a burgeoning new technology created by Ferro, a leading US manufacturer of tints and pigments, called Complex Inorganic Compounded Pigments or CICP’s. Over the next several years, with the assistance of several chemists and technicians whose expertise lay in coatings, this CICP technology was merged with water borne epoxy technology to create a superior coating, able to withstand the elements and high temperatures while reflecting a maximum degree of solar radiation. Through this unique combination, lower thickness requirement can be achieved while still providing a prolonged period of protection. Through the use of the CICP’s, various colors can be achieved as opposed to just white, while still providing optimum levels of solar reflectance and emissivity. CCJJ LLC officially started in 2006 with the purpose of bringing Coat 'N' Cool® roof coatings to market. The Company was born from the founders of Aqua Mix Inc. CCJJ LLC was founded on similar principals of honesty, environmental stewardship, high quality products, and providing technical information for the consumer. CCJJ LLC is a family run California company that is eager to help in shaping the future with these values and experience. As a Company, we are very excited and proud of our primary product, Coat ’N’ Cool®.
