If you’re wondering, does heat reflective paint work, the short answer is yes.
At Globalcote we have developed a membrane called Infracote which is an infrared reflective coating.
Like our other exterior coatings, Infracote is made locally in Brisbane, specifically formulated by a team of experts and has been designed with the unique Australian climate in mind.

How Does Infracote Work to Reflect Heat?
A roof often has a large surface area and can be on an angle or flat which can capture and absorb an enormous amount of the sun’s radiation.
Infracote uses technology to help prevent the roof space from heating up in the first place.
The membrane reflects the sun’s radiation away from the surface it’s coating, therefore seeing it absorb less heat.
It’s special cross-linking technology also means it doesn’t pick up as much dirt and is self-cleaning, and that’s beneficial because when a surface remains clean, it can maintain its solar reflectance.
Roof Colours Best for Reflecting the Sun’s Radiation
It’s no secret that darker coloured objects are hotter to touch when they’ve been exposed to the sun for a long time, and some dark coloured roof surfaces can reach more than 90 degrees.
Lighter colours or white coated surfaces do reflect the sun’s heat better, although they aren’t always allowed by councils or are the best look for a house.
