Why should your Heat Reflective paint have Dirtguard?

All Astec's Energy Star coatings have Dirtguard technology.  This keeps paint cleaner and inhibits dirt pick up and assists in the maintenance of their sola reflectivity.  We have formulated the paint matrix in such a way as to not allow the penetration of contaminants as would happen to normal or standard paint formulations. Dirtguard is present in all Astec products that display the Astec Dirtguard Logo.  Learn More
