Energy efficiency study of temperature reduction on the assets with reflective coatings


Author/s: Francisco Martín Navarro

Thermal treatment systems used on buildings must grant a thermal barrier between the inner and outer climate conditions that reduce energy flow providing several physical properties like permeability of materials (preventing humidity) and ensuring air circulation through the building.

One of the greatest advantages of reflective coatings in construction is their high albedo index, in other words, their high power to return to the atmosphere part of the radiation received.

Cool Roof technology uses materials that have a high level of SRI (Solar Reflectance Index).

Keywords: Energy efficiency, reflective coatings that allow saving energy
