Heat- reflective paint system for metal surfaces
The purpose of this system is to improve comfort inside warehouses that are exposed to direct sunlight and to improve energy optimization. It solves the problems related to the storage of cereals, flours and products that are sensitive to temperature changes in silos placed under the sun. It reflects the heat generated by solar radiation (both visible and infrared) and, when applied on breeding farms coverings, it improves the animal welfare index.
Fields of application: roofs of sheds, houses, warehouses, containers, silos, farms, iron surfaces, zinc-coated sheets, steel, copper, sandwich panels.
High solar reflectance, emissivity and SRI finishes
Compared to traditional heat-absorbing roofs, heat-reflective paints applied to roofs reflect solar radiation, lower surface temperature and prevent indoor overheating
Nanotech inside® paints prevent indoor overheating and make any living and working environment comfortable and cool, preventing the risk of “hot head” syndrome
Storage of materials sensitive to temperature excursions
Thermo-Metals is the definitive solution to the problem of overheating of industrial warehouses which may compromise the storage of perishable food products and temperature-sensitive cosmetics, etc. stored on upper floors due to high temperatures. Also ideal for cereal and flour silos and products sensitive to temperature excursions
Energy and cost savings
The significant reduction in the use of air conditioning systems for cooling purposes means tangible energy savings, as well as reduced energy bills.
As a result, CO2 atmospheric emissions are reduced
Nanotech inside® cool roof products counteract the negative effects of the urban heat island and are an effective tool for combatting global warming
PREPARATION OF THE SUBSTRATE
- Ensure that all surfaces to be treated are suitably hot-washed with an oscillating head, keeping the necessary distance, in order to remove any loose parts, dust, traces of dirt, smog, etc.
- If algae are present, apply Lindostop, an antifouling treatment, and take all necessary precautions to bring the substrate to an ideal state of preparation.
- If there is rust, where necessary, apply Oxifer, which prevents, blocks and permanently converts rust into a stable, overpaintable protective layer.
- Check the tightness and/or work on the anchoring screws and their seals.
When necessary (on substrates already treated against rust, on worn out by time surfaces, on substrate with already existing paintwork, etc…), apply one coat of Nanoprimer, universal water-based anti-corrosion primer finish for metal surfaces, ceramics, plastic, wood. In case of shiny surfaces, such as stainless steel, aluminum or particular metal alloyy, a slight sanding and the application of one coat of an EpoxyPrimer is recommended.
Finally, apply two coats of Thermo-Metals, nanotechnological, heat-reflecting enamel, ideal for metal surfaces (roofs, silos, tanks, containers, etc.)
