White reflective elastomeric roof coatings reduce overheating in buildings

Dow Construction Chemicals : 01 April, 2011  (New Product)
After many years of study into the indoor temperature effects of direct sunlight, Dow Construction Chemicals will use the platform of 2011 European Coatings Show (ECS 2011) to announce latest developments in their
The traditional method of keeping buildings cool and maintaining comfortable temperatures during the hot months has been to invest in energy-hungry air conditioning systems. However, in a program designed to reverse this trend, our new technology has led to the development of reflective elastomeric coatings that are durable and efficient, with the potential of making the single largest contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions caused by domestic, commercial and industrial buildings.

In addition, these cool roof coatings also play a significant role in extending the longevity of structural roofing materials.

At the top of most agendas in todayís building industry is the drive to create products that are more sustainable and take maximum advantage of ways to save energy. One of the main areas promising significant progress in this area is roof technology, specifically the development of coatings aimed at lowering building temperatures caused by radiant sunlight.
