“Cool roof”, civil and industrial roof thermal treatments

Fields of use: roofs of sheds, houses, warehouses, containers, silos, farms, terraces, canopies, tents, RVs, etc.

In a building, 35% of heat loss occurs through the walls and 25% through the roof. Therefore, a significant amount of energy is needed to keep interiors cool in summer and warm in winter. Thanks to special paint that reflects solar radiation and keeps the surface temperature lower, compared to traditional coating, with Cool materials it is possible to counteract the negative effects of the Urban Heat Island (UHI). Thus, cool roof technology is born.

Benefits:

  • Sensible internal temperature reduction
  • Remarkable energy savings
  • Increased comfort and “hot head” effect reduction
  • Effective tool in the fight against global warming
  • Less degradation of cover materials over time
  • Water impermeability, even in case of prolonged water stagnation
  • Improvement of the IBA (animal welfare index) for breeding farms

THERMO-REPAIR

Intermediate fibre primer for aged bituminous membranes.

Thermo-Repair is a light grey, fibrous intermediate primer, to be used in maintenance works of smooth or slated bituminous membranes which, due to outdoor exposure, need to be restored using a painting cycle that includes an intermediate primer capable of increasing a thickness of up to 1 or 2 mm, thus reconstructing the part that has been eroded over time. It is not a finishing product and must always be coated with the Thermo-Gum line to obtain full and performing painting cycles with excellent heat-reflecting and long-lasting sealing features when used in flat or sloping roof applications.

  • A full restoration cycle product, providing heat-reflective protection for membraned flat or sloping roofs

The painting cycle must always include inspection, checking, cleaning and sealing. Before finishing with Thermo-Gum, Thermo-Gum Evolution or Thermo-Gum Calpestabile, always apply a coat of suitable Spot-Fix fixative. In cases of evident damage and/or cracking of the existing sheath, follow the instructions of the membrane manufacturer, for restoring degraded parts.

REPAIR LUX for skylights

Polyurethane restructuring paint with excellent elasticity features, ideal for repairing surface micro-cracks on fibreglass roofs. Topcoat to be applied using Thermo-Lux or Thermo-Lux Evolution.

REPAIR-LUX is used in civil and industrial building works as a polyurethane restructuring paint with excellent elasticity and anti-algae features. It is ideal for the repair of superficial micro-cracks on fibreglass roofs. Also suitable for protecting polycarbonate and glass surfaces. Ideal for fibreglass roofs showing the wear and tear of time. in quanto?

THERMO-LUX for skylights

Modified acrylic paint for exteriors, semi-clear, heat-reflecting, water-repellent and anti-algae with high resistance to atmospheric agents.

It is used in civil and industrial building works for the protection of fibreglass, polycarbonate and glass skylights which  generate excessive heat and glare, such as domes, small domes and parts intended to maintain proper window/floor surface ratios. The high solar reflectance values block 90% of UV radiation and reflect 90% of IR radiation, thus preventing indoor overheating and making all living and working environments more comfortable and cooler, preventing the risk of the “hot head” effect.  Thermo-Lux lowers the internal temperature, significantly reduces the use of cooling systems and contributes, thanks to energy savings, to a reduction in CO2 atmospheric emissions. It is the definitive solution to all overheating problems caused by roof-mounted skylights in industrial buildings, which in the summer can compromise the storage of perishable goods and cosmetics, etc., stored on upper floors due to high temperatures. It improves worker performance, increasing productivity and reducing the risk of injuries and/or cases of heat syncope. The semi-clear appearance of the applied varnish allows transit of a large part of the visible light (70%), while ensuring high but diffused light transmission without aggravating glare (90% glare reduction). The opalescent finish prevents viewing inside from the outside. Applicable using a spray gun, it bonds directly to suitably prepared surfaces; it reduces expansion and thermal and mechanical surface stress, and it extends the skylight life cycle.

  • Reduction of glare (preventing bothersome reflections on video terminals).
  • Produced with good solar reflectance values.
  • Cool roof heat treatment, as an effective tool in the fight against global warming.
  • Enhancement of indoor living comfort and reduction of the “hot head” effect.
  • It improves productivity in working environments.
  • Reduction of energy use, generating energy and cost savings.
  • Reduction of expansion and surface thermal and mechanical stress.
  • Lower degradation of roofing materials over time: less maintenance over time and greater savings.
  • Option of using high-performance products within projects benefitting from tax relief.

On a suitably prepared, clean and dry substrate, apply a recommended thickness of approx. 150/200 μm, corresponding to 2 coats. Maintenance: Wash the treated surface at least every 12 months. If necessary, repeat painting, applying one coat only.

THERMO-LUX Evolution

Polyurethane, heat-reflecting and semi-clear varnish with restructuring action. Ideal for fibreglass surfaces showing wear and tear.

Thermo-Lux Evolution is used in civil and industrial buildings as a semi-clear, heat-reflecting, water-repellent and anti-algae polyurethane varnish for exteriors. It is especially suitable for protecting sloping surfaces in fibreglass, polycarbonate and glass, such as domes, small domes and parts intended to maintain the correct window/floor surface area ratios, to which it bonds directly. Much of the UV radiation (90%) is blocked, while IR radiation (90%) is reflected, preventing internal overheating and rendering all environments more comfortable, preventing the risk of the “hot head” effect. It means that painting has a longer life, thanks to high resistance to atmospheric agents. The semi-clear appearance of the applied varnish allows transit of a large part of visible light (70%), while ensuring high but diffused light transmission without aggravating glare (90% glare reduction). Remarkable glare reduction (approx. 90%). The finish renders the surface opalescent, thus preventing viewing inside from the outside.  It increases building energy optimisation, improves thermal insulation and contributes, thanks to energy savings, to a reduction of CO2 atmospheric emissions. It does not yellow over time and allows full and even finishes to be achieved, which allow water vapour to pass and are water-repellent.

  • Reduction of glare (preventing bothersome reflections on video terminals).
  • Restructuring action.
  • High resistance to atmospheric agents.
  • Product with good solar reflectance values.
  • Cool roof heat treatment, as an effective tool in the fight against global warming.
  • Enhancement of indoor living comfort and reduction of the “hot head” effect.
  • It improves productivity in working environments.
  • Enhanced building energy efficiency with resulting energy and cost savings.
  • Lower degradation of roofing materials over time: less maintenance over time and greater savings.
  • Option of using high-performance products within projects benefitting from tax relief.

On a suitably prepared, clean and dry substrate, apply a recommended thickness of approx. 150/200 μm, corresponding to 2 coats.  Maintenance: Wash the treated surface at least every 12 months. If necessary, repeat painting, applying one coat only.
