Generally, white reflective coatings tend to be water based and are more suited to new roofs due to their low cost and ease of use. Coo Var Solar Reflective White Paint is a bright white acrylic coating that reduces heat build up inside and outside the building. It can be used on concrete, wood, brick and other surfaces, and
We analyze the solar reflectance of asphalt roofing shingles that are covered with pigmented mineral roofing granules. The reflecting surface is rough, with a total area approximately twice the nominal area. We introduce a Of the various common roofing types (metal, tile, wood, etc.), formulation of cool asphalt shingles is
decreasing thermal emittance to 0.80 from 0.85 increases the temperature of a roof with solar reflectance. 0.55 by .. clay tiles, fiber cement tiles, slate, wood shakes/shingles, architectural metal panels, and Western Roofing Insulation and Siding magazine projected that the total roof construction sales in.

Ryan has evaluated the total solar reflectance (TSR) of commercial cool pigments and Artic pigments from Shepherd Colour Company with different colours. They measured the difference of temperature using a closed wood device and the results demonstrated a higher NIR reflectance for samples coated with cool
tiles, metal roofing, wood shakes, membranes, and coatings. Significant efforts are being devoted energy savings in excess of 20% upon raising the solar reflectance of a roof to 0.6 from a prior value of 0.1 0.2 (Konopacki and Akbari, 2001; How can we maximize the total solar reflectance of a pigmented coating while
The light reflectance value (LRV) of a colour, as measured by, for example, a spectrophotometer, is a measure of how much of the LRVs are particularly difficult to determine from semi transparent finishes such as wood stains. Light travelling This is because the total solar reflectance (TSR) of the Resene Cool. Colour is
Novapint D Solar Reflective Colorants are ideal for water based facade paints and plasters. The pigments achieve a high Total Solar Reflectance (TSR) value, absorbing much less heat than conventional colorants. An innovative black solar reflective colorant replaces carbon black or iron black. Combining conventional

The most pertinent properties in the thermal performance of roofing is the total solar reflectance and the infrared emittance of the samples. Ideally, a roofing system designed to reduce . The brown painted wood shingle had a solar reflectance of approximately 22%. The other sample with a tint, supposedly
Solar Reflectance, Thermal Emittance and Solar Reflective Index (SRI). Solar Reflectance. To be considered “cool,” products must have a Solar Reflectance of at least 25%. Solar Reflectance is the fraction of the total solar energy that is reflected away from a surface.
However this same black coating will have a surface temperature of about 65°C if the coated substrate is wood, plastic or isolated steel sheets. Key definitions follow: Total Solar Reflectance the amount of solar radiation that is reflected by a surface, measured as a percentage. Thermal Emittance the

A glossy paint, even a jet black glossy paint will have some specular reflectance from the surface rather like a mirror. This is why there is not a standard LRV provided for wood stain colours. This is because the total solar reflectance (TSR) of the Resene CoolColour is much higher than the TSR of the standard colour.
Paint manufacturers are interested in the reflectivity of their products. This char acteristic involves properties in both the visible region where color is important as well as extending into the Near Infrared. (NIR) region where the properties of the paint with respect to solar radiation are important. In particular, the most
To achieve LEED certification, a building must obtain at least 40 credits out of a total of 110 available. Each material used to make as From this derives the calculation of an index that takes into account the measured values called SRI (Solar Reflectance Index) according to the ASTM E 1980. The materials for external
