Coat-FX offers high-quality coatings aimed at the industrial and tertiary sectors. Coat-FX offers coatings such as Cool-FX, designed to reduce heat by reflecting solar radiation on roofs and other surfaces, resulting in better living and working conditions and lower energy costs. Coat-FX is a new brand of innovative coatings.
Cool down your work climate the smart way
Over the past decade, the steady rise in global temperatures has become increasingly evident. This shift in the world's climate has had local impacts, including the excessive accumulation of heat in buildings, resulting in difficult working and living conditions for humans and animals alike. Many solutions have been proposed to address this issue. Some involve active approaches such as air conditioning, while others are passive solutions like our Cool-FX coating.
Cool roofing coatings are an increasingly popular solution in many countries for reducing the impact of heat during warm seasons. Our whitepaper explains how using a roof cooling coating can help keep building climates more manageable. By using this technology, you can also save energy and create a more comfortable indoor climate.
COOL-FX, THE SOLUTION FOR TEMPORARY ROOF COOLING
Cool-FX is a temporary water-based roof cooling coating specifically developed to reflect solar radiation on barns, skylights, and commercial/office buildings (tar, gravel, and metal roofs). In the summer during warm weather, roofs can warm up to well over 70 °C (160 °F). This heating up causes undesired temperature increases underneath the roof. By painting the roof surface white, much of the solar radiation will be reflected. The treated roof surfaces can be cooler by as much as 40 °C (100 °F) compared to untreated roofs. This can lower the inside temperature up to 7 °C (45 °F) and can save a considerable amount of energy.
- A white or reflective roof can result in reduced heat gain inside a building, with internal temperatures decreasing by 2-7°C (35°F to 45°F) compared to a non-protected roof.
- Better living/working conditions for animals and people.
- As the product gradually wears off and the roof returns to its original color due to weather effects, optimal heat absorption can be achieved in the wintertime.
- Saving on your energy costs for airconditioning.
DEVELOPED FOR THE FOLLOWING APPLICATIONS AMONG OTHERS
- Barn roofs (galvanized, metal).
- Tar, gravel & bitumen roofs of commercial buildings and offices.
Shake or stir before use. Mix Cool-FX with clean water according to the desired concentration. Mix well until a homogeneous liquid is obtained. The ready-to-spray liquid can be sprayed with standard spray equipment. Thoroughly clean spray equipment with water after use.
|Concentration*||Type of roof||Area in m2 per bucket|
|1 to 2||Tar, gravel & bitumen||250|
|1 to 3||Tar, metal (older)||300|
|1 to 4||Metal (new)||350|

Cool-FX is a type of temporary coating that will gradually wear off over time depending on its concentration and the prevailing weather conditions. Typically, the cooling effect of Cool-FX lasts for an average of 4 months. When applied to a porous surface, Cool-FX will generally take longer to wear off completely. However, it is good to note that there is no need for a specific cleaner to remove Cool-FX.
Cool-FX is available in 20 Kg buckets and should be kept from freezing.
