Energy Star® Takes The Heat
Out Of Building and Restoration...!
Energy Star® coatings are sustainable Energy Efficient solutions for roofs and
walls that significantly reduce absorbed heat in the building envelope.
The use of Energy Star® systems during restoration or new construction results in
energy cost savings, cooler occupancy zones and reduced Co2 emissions.
Cool Solutions to Dark Colour
As a result of ongoing research and development into heat reflective coatings Astec developed the technology of colour infused nano ceramics that reflect heat by selective reflection of infrared light. This technology has enabled us to offer dark colour exterior coatings that reflect fully 50% of Solar energy and provide positive results for our environment and consumers.
The successful development of Energy Star® enables you to make choices to provide positive contributions to our global environment with reductions in Urban Heat, Smog and through its energy efficiency, help reduce Co2 emissions.
Our environment is constantly changing and we are all making choices that have an impact now and into the future. Choose Energy Star® with confidence and Paint with Pride.
Fact: "Astec Paints were the first
to invent and introduce to the
Australian market the technology
of Heat Reflective Coating".
Reduced Energy and Co2
Fact: Research indicates that
reducing the upper surface solar
absorbance of 1m2 of a roof's
area by 0.25 is equivalent to
removing a one off amount of
64 kg of CO2 emissions from
the atmosphere for the life of
the roof. 14,080 kg / 220 m2

Infrared heat is reflected.
The IR heat signature above was
captured by an infrared camera
from the rear of two panels
during a Solar Radiation Exposure
Test . One panel was Astec Energy
Star® Low Sheen and the other, a
competitor’s premium exterior
acrylic. Both panels were identical
