Why should you view this course?

Strong growth in the heat reflective coatings market is being driven by climate change, urban heat island effect, rising energy costs and incentives offered for use of these coatings by utility companies and governmental organizations. Currently, manufacturers of industrial and architectural coatings have a window of opportunity to capture the market by swiftly developing a range of cool-roof, cool-wall and other heat reflective coatings.

Attending this course, will give formulators of traditional coatings a head-start in the field and considerably shorten their development cycle. Participants will also learn about new applications of heat reflectance technology emerging in the autonomous and electric vehicles segment. These new applications present further opportunities for formulators and manufacturers willing to invest in this technology.

Join this course and get answers to the following questions:
  1. How does solar radiation interact with coated surfaces?
  2. How can heat reflectance be maximized?
  3. What are the different strategies for formulating heat reflective coatings?
  4. Why should use of carbon blacks be avoided in heat reflective coatings?
  5. How can I formulate darker shades without carbon black?
  6. How can I color match while still maintaining good reflectance?
  7. How can heat reflective pigment be efficiently dispersed?
  8. How is heat reflectance coatings technology relevant to autonomous vehicles?
  9. What are the current applications and future prospects of heat reflective coatings?
