SOLACOAT HEAT REFECTIVE INSULATION PAINT
SOLACOAT is the most efficient and cost effective form of heat
reflective insulation paint. It is a waterborne acrylic emulsion
which has a special membrane additive which aids in the rejection
of infra red rays.
SOLACOAT will, on a typical summers day at noon time, provide
upto 80%+ rejection of the Solar Radiation from the Sun onto and
into the roof of a building. Tests have shown, that the surface of
uncoated Galvanised Iron roof can be reduced by upto 40 Degrees C,
resulting in a drop of upto 10-15 degrees C within a building that
is Insulated and higher if Uninsulated, creating a more comfortable
working and or living environment.
SOLACOAT reduces the heat from entering a building. For a house
roof of 150 sq metres, Solacoat reduces the heat absorption of a
Colorbond Green roof from, 100 kilowatts to approximately 30
kilowatts, which will provide a reduction in energy cooling costs
and reduce greenhouse Gases going into the earth's atmosphere.
SOLACOAT has a good architectural appearance as well as
durability, while providing an excellent reflective coating.
SOLACOAT can be applied to most surfaces; however it will not
adhere to oil based products. New surfaces will require the proper
preparation. SOLACOAT can be applied by brush, roller or airless
spray and will require two coats to give adequate surface coverage.
We recommend the application of a base coat / primer on most
surfaces. See our website for a list of SOLACOAT applications.
