COOL-FX, A WHITE ROOF COATING
EXTREMELY HOT DAYS IN SUMMER
Nowadays, there can be periods in summer when the weather becomes so sweltering that the stifling heat easily manages to penetrate inside. The hot air hangs like a leaden blanket over a house, stable or factory, resulting in rising temperatures inside the building. Periods like this are becoming more frequent every year, making solutions for such conditions increasingly desirable.
WHAT IS WHITE ROOF COATING?
Especially in buildings where the roof is black, the warming of this roof, and thus the building, can be significant. The black colour of the roof absorbs light and heat from the sun. Cool-FX is a white roof coating. It makes the roof white, thus reflecting light and heat.
The theory is simple, but the effect is substantial! Thanks to Lumiforte's years of experience with coatings, Cool-FX has been developed to the point where it works perfectly for the desired period of the year!
