Energy Star Heat Reflective Coatings
Australia's Leading Brand.  Trusted by Architects, Builders and Renovators.....Since 1978
 
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.
 
  
Confidence for Certifiers, Builders and Architects
Energy Star® heat reflective coatings are the first, and only
range of roof and wall coatings to be Code Mark certified and
approved for guaranteed compliance with the Building Code of
Australia (B.C.A.) Section J – Energy Efficiency Guidelines.
                                         

 

 

 
Energy Star
 
  
 Infrared heat is reflected  reducing up to 50% of the absorbed heat in the building envelope.     READ MORE  
 
Fact: increasing the temperature of the air-conditioner set point in summer by just 1ºC can reduce energy and emissions by 10 percent as the air conditioner does not have to work so hard.  Macquarie University webpage Energy and Emissions – Sustainability 
 
 
                                           
 
Leaders in Green, Sustainable, Low VOC Products
Sustainability is at the core of our business philosophy. We are proud of our portfolio of leading brands that make a positive difference to the environment and the health of our buildings. With more than 95% of all products being low in V.O.C. and certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia, as green sustainable products.
 
 
Cool Walls
The use of deep tone exteriors, although aesthetically appealing, adds absorbed heat to the building envelope and is contrary to basic principals of energy efficiency.
 
Astec Energy Star texture and render systems significantly reduce absorbed heat in the wall by selective reflection of infrared light.  They remain cool, even in dark colours, reduce thermal shock and in some climate zones negate the need for added insulation at all.
 
 
 
Cool Roofing
Astec Energy Star infrared heat reflective coating systems reflect fully 50% of solar heat by infrared reflection.  Even in darks colours, their low solar absorbance and high emittance will significantly reduce absorbed heat in roofing substrates.
 
Heat reflective coatings for metal and concrete roofing are installed at a fraction of the cost of re-roofing, are aesthetically pleasing and remain cool in the extremes of summer.
  
 
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
Test. One panel was Astec Energy
Star® Low Sheen and the other, a
competitor’s premium exterior
acrylic. Both panels were identical
in colour.
