A surface stays cool by having high solar reflectance and high thermal emittance. High solar reflectance, in turn, lowers solar heat gain while high thermal emittance enhances thermal radiative cooling.

The more solar energy an object absorbs, the greater the heat build-up. Conversely, the higher the solar reflectance, the cooler an object will stay.

Chromaflo Technologies’ colorants for IR reflective paint and coatings work to maximize total solar reflectance with focus in the IR region, offering the benefit of superior solar reflectance for IR reflective paint and coatings formulations. Our proven technology stems from a perfect blend of the proper pigment selection, optimized milling, and tight manufacturing cleanliness practices.

Chromaflo’s IR reflective paint technology can be incorporated into coatings products to help control the effects of solar heat on exterior surfaces.  Some advantages of keeping exteriors cooler include:
*Reduced energy costs in homes and commercial buildings
*Improved durability in industrial applications
*Protection of skin from hot surfaces
*Easier cooling of vehicles on warm days
Exterior applications which can obtain value from incorporating this technology include roof coatings, exterior building coatings, playground equipment, aircraft dashboards, outdoor track and fields, commercial window treatments, and automotive interiors and exteriors. Chromaflo Technologies’ colorants for IR reflective paint and coatings protect substrates against excessive temperatures and UV radiation by reflecting the IR wavelengths and limiting ultraviolet radiation.
Saving money on cooling costs by keeping surfaces cooler is a benefit to consumers, but using IR reflective paint technology also helps to protect our environment by using less energy.  Making homes and businesses more energy-efficient contributes to a greener, healthier atmosphere for all to enjoy.
