How to improve sustainability in cool roof coatings and insulating paints

Omya Hamburg
This is a Past Webinar

In most countries, the building sector consumes nearly one-third of total energy, with over half attributed to residential electricity usage. Particularly in warm regions, air conditioning can devour up to 60% of residential energy, a figure expected to surge due to global warming. Demand for residential cooling and energy needs are set to rise significantly, affecting both tropical and temperate zones with escalating costs.

In this webinar you will learn about optimized formulations, merging specialized fillers and best-in-class microspheres, ensuring high-performance coatings. These coatings excel in reflectance, emissivity, heat reduction, thermal conductivity, and dirt resistance without compromising commercial viability.

The webinar also dives in an extensive study evaluating rheological, mechanical, and thermal insulating properties and proving that customized combinations leads to more efficient coatings which may eventually also contribute to energy savings.

Watch the recording to discover how you can enhance energy efficiency and revolutionize building sector using best-in-class, high reflective coatings.
