In today’s building construction, concrete is used in many ways: in roofing applications, for instance, walls may be made of concrete - a very popular form of construction for the larger area commercial and industrial buildings -; or it may be used in outdoor courtyards, roof top patios and driveways, storage tanks, etc.
There are many benefits to Solar Cool ’s Insulted Heat Reflective Paints. On the one hand, the heat reflective properties of this concrete coating lower the amount of heat conducted through the material to the inside of the building or structure. On the other hand, the membrane in these heat reflective paints helps reduce the contraction and expansion of the material, protect from wear and tear and thus reduce maintenance.
Further, when applied to concrete roofing and exterior walls in industrial and commercial buildings and other structures, Solar Cool’s Insultec Heat Reflective Paints will help cut air-conditioning costs, assist in the reduction of structural damage and protect the concrete from the harmful effects of salt spray, mould, fungus and other air-borne nasties.
Concrete storage tanks benefit from an application of Insultec Heat Reflective Concrete Paints where the capability of the product to re-radiate the rays of the sun will help reduce the evaporation of liquids stored inside, and keep grains and other non liquid products much cooler than when exposed to the normal level of thermal conduction.
Insultec’s Heat Reflective Paints have been proven to stop 85% of ultra-violet and 90% of infrared rays heating the concrete by re-radiating them back into the atmosphere.
