How does ThermaCote reduces the temperature and energy consumption in your city?
ThermaCote® is a thermal barrier coating.
Climate change will increase heatwaves. Climate change is expected to drive an increase in the frequency, intensity and duration of heatwaves. Energy use in cities, such as power for lighting, heating or cooling, can also add heat to the surroundings.
Increasing urbanisation will increase overheating. Urban surfaces such as buildings, roads, and other paved areas, absorb and retain heat from the sun (80% of the sunlight that contacts them).
All these factors can lead to higher air temperatures in cities (1ºC to 5ºC higher than surrounding areas), an effect known as the urban heat island (UHI) and will have effects on comfort, health and infrastructures.
If you want to reduce the temperature and energy consumption in your city, you should seriously consider applying ThermaCote® on your roofs, facades and pavements
ThermaCote® is a Cool Material that coats the substrate to provide a durable low-maintenance finish that also reflects visible, infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths of the sun (Solar Reflectance), reduces heat to the underlying substrate (Thermal Conductivity) & radiates absorbed, or non-reflected solar energy (Emittance).
ThermaCote® can be applied on roofs, facades and pavements, which bring down temperatures in urban areas and save lives during heatwaves, combating the Urban Heat Island Effect.
During heatwaves, modelling suggested that cool roofs could reduce city-centre daytime air temperature up to a 3 degrees. Too ThermaCote acts as a weather barrier, reducing the run time for air conditioners or heaters, providing energy savings, lowering heat to the surroundings, reducing air pollution and improving your comfort. Finally, ThermaCote® extends life of roofs, facades and pavements.
