Solar Reflective Paints

August 4th, 2016

Solar reflecting paints are used to reduce heat build up in roofs and internal areas by deflecting sunlight from the substrate.

Solar induced heat from direct sunlight is reflected away from the surface which can help dissipate and reduce the transfer of heat into the buildings internal space. They also protect the surface against direct effects of UV and heat damage to help prolong the life of the roof.
