Cool roof BACK
Cool Roof means reflective roofing that protects its surface from excessive heating. Cool roof delivers high solar reflectance (the ability to reflect the UV rays, reducing heat transfer to the surface) and high thermal emittance (the ability to radiate absorbed or non-reflected solar energy).

The Solar Reflective Index (SRI) is a measure of the constructed surface's ability to reflect solar heat, as shown by a small temperature rise.
SRI combines reflectance and thermal emittance into one number. It is defined so that a standard black (reflectance 0.05, emittance 0.90) is 0 and a standard white (reflectance 0.80, emittance 0.90) is 100.
Calculations are made according ASTM E 1980-01.
Cool Roof

Advantages of a Cool Roof:
For building owners:
  • reduce the energy required for interior cooling;
  • reduce thermal stresses on the roof, hence improving system lifetimes;
  • improve indoor thermal comfort;
  • reduce running and maintenance costs
  • increase the value of a building (cool roof is highly valorised by energy and sustainability certifications) .

For policy makers:
  • have a positive impact on the global environment by reducing the energy required for interior cooling and related greenhouse gas emissions;
  • help to mitigate the urban heat island effect. 

Our solutions complying with the Cool Roof concept:
  • Enduroflex: a low VOC, high solids, single component, moisture cured liquid waterproofing system.
  • ReflectoWhite: a white, waterborne, single component roof reflective coating with good UV and ozone resistance, for Cool Roof applications.
  • Silver Primer: highly reflective speed varnish SBS with liquid aluminium for new or existing roofings.

Icopal is a member of European Cool Roof Council (ECRC) that advocates that Cool Roof products can make an important contribution to mitigate climate change, reduce the urban heat island effect and increase the sustainability of buildings.
