The Advantages of Spray Paint and Highly Reflective Roof Coatings

The primary purpose of coating and sealing is to secure aesthetics. Moreover, the proper selection and application of coating can make all the difference when it comes to energy use at home or the office.

The Advantages of Spray Paint and Highly Reflective Roof Coatings

  2. 2. The primary purpose of coating and sealing is to secure aesthetics. Moreover, the proper selection and application of coating can make all the difference when it comes to energy use at home or the office. Spray coating is an effective way of protecting and preserving the roofing membrane. Using an airless gun, the paint solution is atomised and spread using a high-pressure nozzle. This is done for the even spreading of paint across the surface of the substrate; it creates a reflective or glossy finish.
  3. 3. Glossing the Light Off Solvent-based sealers are the best choice for sealant if you are looking for roofing technology those results in a cooler home. Solvent-based sealers use nano particle polymers and solvent to form a continuous, clear solution. After the solvent evaporates, the polymer chains are drawn closer together and are fortified. This is what makes a sealed concrete surface appear glossy. Sealers with acrylic solution are fully transparent, repel UV rays and do not undergo photochemical breakdown unlike UV-absorbent polymers. As these wet out and penetrate concrete surfaces thoroughly, it gives the underlying concrete a glossier finish. Reflectivity and Energy Efficiency A higher level of reflectivity in the paint can make all the difference when it comes to the building’s energy consumption and cost. All materials conduct certain amounts of heat, and the roofs, whatever material they are made of, are not immune to this. With sealers, the amount of heat penetrating the structure tends to bounce.
  4. 4. Specifically developed coating solutions can reduce outdoor surface temperature and help minimise the energy needed to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. These “cooling” paints can reduce incoming heat by up to 5˚C. Highly reflective sealers redirect the sun’s heat back into the atmosphere and away from the building. This retains the building’s indoor temperature and cuts costs related to energy consumption. Spray paint roof sealers that create highly reflective and glossy finish indeed add not only to aesthetics, but to energy efficiency as well. With the Australian standards for energy efficiency, this cool roof solution is one thing every home builder must not miss.
