AttCool is designed principally for use on roofs. It is applied by spraying onto the surface.
The product reduces heat gain into a roof using two modes of action: low thermal conductivity and heat reflection. Practical results on a large galvanized iron roof structure indicated a temperature decrease of 8°C within the working area compared to measurements prior to coating application.
AttCool is a Thermal Barrier Coating System designed principally for use on roofs. This does however not mean that other surfaces cannot be coated. It is a waterborne composition with low odor and applied by spraying or brushing onto the surface. The product reduces heat gain into a roof or surface using two modes of action: low thermal conductivity and heat reflection. Practical results on a large galvanized iron roof indicate a temperature decrease of 8°C within the working area beneath the roof (a warehouse). The ambient conditions under the roof were noticeably improved.
The low thermal conductivity means that it can also be used as a ceiling paint over painted or unpainted ceiling boards, especially on ceilings directly beneath the roof or attic. The thermal resistance properties result in typical temperature reduction properties of 4 – 6 degrees compared to conventional ceiling paints. The ambient temperature within the room may drop 2-4 degrees. Rooms treated with AttCool also warm up quicker in winter, as less heat is lost through the ceiling.
The temperatures were recorded over a period of four days, using three temperature loggers.
Temperatures were recorded in the following positions:
The results can be tabulated as follows:
|28 January||29 January||30 January||31 January|
|Temp °C||Temp °C||Temp °C|
The temperatures shown above are the peak temperatures measured during the course of each day.
The results show the following:
