UV Reflective Surface Coatings

Thanks to Brushworks Painting Albury-Wodonga, keeping your property cool is easy. We are specialists in the application of UV-reflective coatings to your roof and building exterior.

This product range is fantastic; reflecting ultra violet light and proven to cut back internal temperatures. These coatings can be used on just about any exterior building surface. You can integrate this coating in to a roof restoration or give us a call to discuss other options.

A sustainable solution that reflects and emits the sun’s solar radiation to provide a cooler surface.

InfraCool Heat Reflective Coatings

We are committed to continually improving the environmental footprint and sustainability of our products.  InfraCOOL Technology reflects and emits both the visible or “coloured” light and invisible infrared light, which accounts for over 50% of the sun’s total light energy to provide a much cooler building surface.  A cooler surface means less heat penetration, resulting in cooler occupancy zones which lowers the use of energy. This translates into cost savings and reduced associated greenhouse gas emissions.

The Need for COOL Roofs

Sustainable building design and energy efficient living leads to environmentally responsible economic growth. Cool Roofs offer us one of the most simple and effective global warming mitigation strategies.

Roof surfaces represent 20-25% of the built environ and act as “Solar Radiators”. So much so that around 93% of a building’s heat gain can be attributed to radiant energy (meaning the sun’s rays converted to heat after absorption). In Australia, where the prominent source of a buildings’ heat gain is radiant sunlight and up to 93% of a buildings’ heat gain in summer is attributable to radiant heat. Reflective COOL Roofs should be a key focus in combating heat gain.

Sustainable opportunity for commercial facilities

  • Reflects solar radiation
  • Lessens heat penetration
  • Reduces cooling cost
  • Lowers carbon footprint

In Australia, most commercial buildings have galvanised or Zincalume roofing which act as poor reflectors of solar energy. By reflecting more of the sun’s energy, these surfaces can be 20-40°C COOLER – translating into cooler occupancy zones, lowering cooling energy demand and thus delivering cost and energy emission savings.

Sustainable Opportunity for Residential Properties

It doesn’t have to be WHITE to be COOL…

InfraCOOL® Technology maximises reflection of infra-red radiation, even dark colours can be made COOLER.  InfraCOOL® Charcoal, for example, can be up to 16ºC COOLER than conventionally formulated Charcoal without changing the visual colour.
