Increasing solar reflection in colorful coatings
The sun can heat up the colored surfaces of buildings, which can raise their internal temperature and place heavy loads on air- conditioning systems. Working in a range of systems, ALTIRIS® infrared reflecting pigment can help to increase solar energy reflectance in a wide range of colors.
While the primary market for ALTIRIS® infrared reflecting pigment is for coatings on buildings, the sun can also heat the colorful surfaces of vehicles and ships, potentially increasing their internal temperatures too. ALTIRIS® infrared reflecting pigment in the exterior coatings of vehicles and ships can help reduce their internal temperatures, which can help
reduce the energy used for air-conditioning.
