Reflect-Tec® Heat Reflective Tile Roof / Metal Roof Coating System

  • The TEX•COTE® REFLECT-TEC® Heat-Reflective roof coating utilizes infrared heat-reflective technology and state of the art Kynar Aquatec® Fluorpolymer technology, under license from Arkema, Inc., to create a water-based field-applied coating with increased solar reflectance and resistance to dirt, mold, mildew, and other contaminants. This special formulation allows REFLECT-TEC® to reflect infrared heat back in to the atmosphere. Since the infrared portion of the light spectrum is invisible, REFLECT-TEC® can provide lower surface temperatures without changing color.

  • On a hot day, the sun can beat down on the roof of your home, and your home can absorb as much as 90% of the radiant energy (or heat)! Even white roofs can absorb significant radiation, especially if they have any dirt, mold, or mildew build-up. All that heat makes the inside of your home hot and uncomfortable. Running air conditioning to cool your home can be extremely expensive.

    In fact, a central air conditioning system uses about 3500 watts, or 3.5kWh every hour. In some areas of the country, cooling even a moderate size house requires over 1500 hours of air conditioning operation per year. Now, the REFLECT-TEC® heat-reflective roof coating system can make your home more comfortable while reducing peak cooling load demands and saving energy.*

    *Percentage of cooling cost, peak cooling load, and surface temperature reductions will vary based on color chosen, geographical location, climate condition, and substrate type. Percentage of peak cooling load reductions are based on models generated from the “Roof Savings Calculator” Beta Release v 0.92 Oak Ridge and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories when compared to a non-cool roof. In some climates, there may be a heating penalty. See www.roofcalc.com for more info.
