Cool your Roof with Solacoat Heat Reflective Paint Coatings,

 

Using the "Latest Technology"!

 

Our heat reflective Solacoat Coatings, incorporates the 'Latest Technology', so don't be confused between the "old and the new" technologies in such coatings:

The older technology incorporates either, 'Ceramic Spheres' and/or 'Ceramic Beads', which were developed by NASA, in the 1960's.  The issue is that these coatings are very thick, 400-600 microns per coat 'wet', requires special application equipment, and generally they provide 4-5 m2 coverage per litre. 

Whereas, Solacoat heat reflective coatings, are only 60 microns thick 'wet' and can be applied by airless spray equipment using 'standard tip sizes', (17-18 Thou) and provide an average coverage of 10m2 per litre or more, depending on the type of substrate to be applied too.

 

The old technology may at first seem cheaper per litre, but you will require far more product, then you will need of our Solacoat products.

 

"I have a new coated white roof, and/or about to coat with standard white paint":

 

"Practically, all new pre-coated metal roof materials, are coated with: 1 x coat of primer, providing 4-6 microns of dry coating, and 1 x topcoat colour, providing 12-20 microns of dry coating".

The issue is, that such pre-coated metal roofing, even in white, and/or pastel colours, provide a high level rejection of the Suns Visible and Invisable Infrared rays initially, which create the thermal surface heat, together with the suns, UV (Ultra-Vilolet) rays, which attack the Pigment (Colour) in the coating, and then these properties generally start to degradate qucikly. This is the same situation with applying Standard exterior paint coatings, because they generally do not incorporate such technology as we do in our Solacoat Heat Reflective Paint Coatings, where a high rejection of the suns Solar rays, and UV rays continues to work much longer, up to 10 years or more.

This same situation occurs with Outdoor Furniture, Beach Umbrella's, Patio's as an example!  Have you ever noticed how quickly they lose their colour, and if metal, Corrosion Starts! This is because the UV rays have attacked the Colour Pigment, and once this occurs, the entire membrane completely starts to fail. It is also the UV rays which attack our Skin.

 

No matter how well a building's roof and walls are insulated, remembering that, Insulation was totally designed to "keep the heat in during those cold winters", which is what it does in those hot summer months "stores the heat" that has radiated through the roof & Westerly facing walls. A building's thermal performance can be improved by making it reflect a high percentage of Solar Rays to reduce the absorption of heat during the summer months.

Solacoat's range of the products reflects the amount of suns solar rays your building and pavement absorbs, thereby assisting in lowering the heat built up on all construction surfaces.  An immediate benefit of using Solacoat during new construction or refurbishment of non-insulated and old insulated buildings, is the result in lower energy costs, increased human comfort levels and the lowering of the environmental impact.

Solacoat is a "Certified Worldwide Award Winning" environmentally and sustainable solution that can assist in reducing the heat build-up in buildings, during those hot summer days, which provides a high rejection of infra-red rays from the sun.

Solacoat can be applied to houses, commercial buildings, offices, warehouses, factories, shopping malls, cold storage areas, animal refuges, storage facilities, railway tracks, pavements, concrete and plastic external pipes and plastic water tanks.  Manufactured in NATA and APAS world's best practice facilities, this non-hazardous product assists in reducing heat from entering a building or home.


 

"I had my roof painted about 2 years ago and since then have save more than the Solacoat cost in air-conditioning, 2008."
Mr Laurie Davidson, Conservation Commission of the Northern Territory


 

What is Solacoat?

Solacoat is a revolutionary water-based acrylic coating that contains a unique membrane additive, which reflects the suns solar rays, whilst assisting in reducing greenhouse gas emissions for buildings that are air-conditioned. 

The percentage of the rejected solar rays will vary depending on the actual colour being applied.  The percentage of the solar rays being rejected, are based on a newly coated roof either corrugated, flat or pitched.  Solarcoat Dark Colours, provide less solar reflectivity then the Pastel Colours. 

Architecturally, Solacoat presents an exceptional appearance, durability, with excellent waterproofing properties and a protective coating in lieu of standard paint finished coatings.

Please refer to our colour selection page for more details.

 

Why use Solacoat Coatings?

Reduce heat from getting in with a reputable heat reflective and cost effective coating.  Solacoat requires 1 x 50 micron thickness wet of Primer and 2 x 50 micron thickness wet topcoat applied to the surface.

    • ASTM E1980-11 - 'Standard Test Method for Calculating Solar Reflectance Index of Horizontal and Low Sloped Opaque Surfaces'
    • ASTM C1371-04a - 'Standard Test Method for Determination of Emittance of Materials near Room Temperature Using Portable Emissometers'

"Solacoat is easy to apply, as it is only 60 microns wet (per coat) and dries to approximately 40 microns per coat & unlike normal paint coatings, Solacoat will keep performing for a minimum of 10 years".

 

For a more favourable and liveable environment with the added benefit of reduced electricity bills, during those Hot Summer Days, we believe Solacoat is a smart solution!
