Cool Down Your Roof with Heat Reflective Paint

Heat Reflective Paint

There has been a revolution in the paint industry with the emergence of heat reflective paint, which improve buildings’ insulation properties in an eco-friendly way. These paints are generally available in light colours because they can reflect up to 80% of solar radiation. However, the technological expertise of ASTEC Paints opens up colour options in black or deep tone for roofs and surfaces that would reflect solar heat and stay cool..
The heat reflective paint lessens the ‘urban heat islands’ effect, which allows cooler buildings. A cooler building means lesser use of air conditioners and lower carbon dioxide emission. This way, heat reflective paints are the best option for those who believe in caring for the environment and longevity of the building. Have a look at our wide range of heat reflective paints under the Energy Star brand and choose the one that best suits your requirements..

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 constrution results in
energy cost savings, cooler ocupancy 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.



 Infrared heat is reflected  reducing up to 50% of the absorbed heat in the building envelope. 
Fact:  a 1ºC drop in temperature can provide a 10% power saving, and as such a considerable overall power saving for a property.  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 it’s 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.

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
absorptance of 1m2 of a roofs
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
