Solar reflective paint is utilized for coating the roof surfaces of the buildings so that energy consumption can be controlled effectively. The roof’s surface temperature is decreased which results in keeping the inside areas of the building cooler and more comfortable. Demand for air conditioning would then be low which will lead to reduced energy costs. The solar coatings are denoted as the white roof coatings inheriting polymeric binder combined with the additives, pigments, silver asphalt, aluminum and pigment flakes.
Some of the advantages associated with solar paint include restricting the UV rays from reaching the inside areas of the property so that cooling effect is maintained; protecting the membranes of the roof so that the life of the roof can be prolonged. The white roofs are capable of reflecting the heat of the sun and the black ones soak the heat emerged from the sun’s rays. For example, if the outside temperature is 100 degree fahrenheit then the roofs coated with solar reflective paints would remain cooler at 90 degree fahrenheit. The indoors would be cooler, this is not the only reason behind people choosing this type of paint. Environmental friendly products are also appreciated by people nowadays and this is the perfect example of such a preference.
