According to statistics, the global roof cool coating market is expected to achieve US$ 7401.5 million with a CAGR of 7% by 2028. These figures exemplify the importance of a cool cover during hot summer months. Beat the heat with roof cooling paint. Enhance comfort and energy efficiency with our innovative cooling solutions. Some of its advantages include:

  • Extended roof life
  • Improved indoor comfort
  • Reduce smog and air pollution
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Types of Cool Roof Coatings

There are several types of roof cool coatings available on the market. Let’s discuss!

Fiber Filled Liquid Roof Cool Coats

This paint offers a thermal index of 105 with high solar reflectance. It is optimal for external applications on roofs, balconies, terraces, etc. Upon curing, it forms a seamless waterproofing membrane.

 PUD Hybrid Roof Cool Coats

PUD coats are hybrid, water-based, and high in solid content. It contains reflective nano-particles for optimal heat protection. Moreover, the liquid paint offers waterproofing and resistance to cracks and abrasion.

Polymer Roof Cool Coats

This paint is a water-based white-colored emulsion consisting of hollow microspheres (<100 microns) and polymers. These microspheres act as thermal insulation covering, reflecting the Sun’s rays back into space.

Single-Ply Roof Cool Coats

This coating is a fabricated sheet attached with metal fasteners and adhered with chemicals. It is marketed in the form of rolls.

 Acrylic Based Roof Cool Coats

Acrylic paint contains cross-linking polymers, microfibers, and anti-fungal additives. With a high solar reflective index, the paint serves as a heat-reflective cover.

Benefits of Cool Roof Coatings

  1. Low Energy Consumption

Reflective paint can lower the temperature of the building’s interior. In other words, it reduces the heat transferred to the building, which helps to minimize the use of air conditioners. According to research, a cool roof can lower peak demand by 11-27%.

  1. Reduced Air Pollution & Greenhouse Gas Emissions

By restricting the use of energy-based appliances, cool roofs help to minimize air pollution along with CFCs. On a massive scale, these roofs reduce the increase of ground-level ozone.

  1. Improved Human Health & Comfort

Cool roofs reduce the adverse impacts on heat islands, such as respiratory problems, heat exhaustion, heat-related deaths, and dizziness. According to research, cool roofs can offset 18% mortality rate linked to high heat intensity.

  1. Protects Against Water Damage

Reflective paint protects roofs against water damage. An impervious barrier composed of dyes, resin, and additives is formed after the curing process. This process helps to extend the roof’s life and better hygienic conditions.

  1. Extended Life Span

Cool roofs assist in elongating the useful life of a roof. The underlayment is secured from the damaging effects of radiation and extreme temperature fluctuations. The Sun’s rays can degrade roofing materials over time, causing crevices, premature aging, and warping. However, upon contact with a cool roof, its harmful effects are subdued significantly.

Installing Cool Roofs – Factors to Consider

  1. Color Choices

Your rooftop’s color is one of the most important features that can affect your residence or business. Generally, light-colored paints are good heat reflectors, whereas dark-colored paints are good heat absorbers. Most users opt for white color because of its high albedo and solar reflective index.

  1. Material Type

The material applied to cool the interior of a closed structure is also essential. Normally, cool roof paint is considered by individuals because of its cost-effectiveness. Other options include:

  • Polyurethane
  • Sheet Membranes
