If you’ve been thinking about how to keep your home cool on even the hottest day, you’ve probably asked yourself, what is the best paint colour to reflect heat?
Globalcoate are an Australian owned and operated company so we understand the harsh affects the summer sun can have on your home – and electricity bill!
Our Infracote reflective coating is designed to help you live comfortably and protect the surface of your roof by reflecting the suns radiation.
Infracote Reflective Coating
Using nanotechnology to reflect the suns radiation from the roof surface, Infracote can help your home to stay cooler and your roof to last longer. It helps to reduce infrared radiation, heat penetration into the roof, cooling costs and carbon footprint.
Total Solar Reflectance (TSR)
Measuring the reflective capability of a roof coating is done through Total Solar Reflectance (TSR). Maintaining solar reflectance is directly related to the surface remaining clean. Infracote keeps the surface clear because it uses nanotechnology to cross-link around nanoparticles to enhance the coatings dirt-shedding capabilities, which in turn affects the solar reflectance.
Infracote offers up to 88%* solar reflectance rather than absorbing the heat into your home.
Choosing the Best Colour for Your Home
So, what colour should you pick to cool your home? If TSR rating is the most important factor for you, then our white shade is the best option.
However, even the darkest colours in our Infracote range will help to keep your home cool. So you don’t have to sacrifice style and curb appeal for function.
You can view the extensive range of paints colours Globacote offers here. Under each colour, there is a TSR rating so you can see what impact the colour has on the reflectance.
