Solar reflective paint is ideal for application to polycarbonate or glass surfaces. It is normally applied to the external side onto the substrate. It can also be applied onto glass.

Solar Reflective Paint is a translucent paint which reduces the suns’ heat by as much as 70%. The benefit is still allows a degree of light to pass through from the outside while reducing the heat input dramatically.

Please be advised the product is a solvent based translucent Matt paint and it is not possible to get an even finish appearance from the underside. This is due to more of the paint being applied during application on the overlapping giving the effect of the finish being patchy. If this is going to be a problem we advise you not to order. Is it better to be able to enjoy YOUR space without the discomfort of excessive heat and glare or have a clear roof and not be able to use the space due to extreme temperatures?

It is manually applied by a brush, good quality emulsion roller (not a foam roller) or spray. The customer can decide (by thinning but no more than 10%) how dark or light he wants the coating to be. Thinner required is Xylene. However remember the lighter the coating the less efficient the heat rejection will be. The darker the coating the more heat will be rejected.

Normally a standard application of 2 (non thinned) coats is required. Technical details as follows:-
