ALMOST ALL REFLECTIVE PAINTS IN THE MARKET ARE ACRYLIC POLYMER BASED PAINTS THAT WILL START TO BREAK DOWN IN 3-4 YEARS!
ALL REFLECTIVE PAINTS ARE SIMILAR, THEY ONLY REFLECT WHEN THE SUN IS UP AND THE COLOUR IS WHITE!
ALL WHITE PAINTS NO MATTER THE PRICE WILL REFLECT UP TO 95% OF THE SUNS RAYS. THE SUN IS DOWN NO BENEFIT ANYMORE.
THE REFLECTIVE - MYTH
The claim is that the paint will reduce the heat in the house by many degrees celsius.
THE THERMAL DYNAMIC
THERMAL DYNAMIC COATING
IS ABOUT THE MOVEMENT OF HEAT THROUGH THE PRODUCT/SUBSTRATE, 24/7,
NOT THE REFLECTIVENESS OF THE PRODUCT.
Regardless it will do the same as reflective paint does anyway.
FACTS ABOUT REFLECTIVE
Reflective paint will only reflect a part of the heat responsible for the heat transfer into the house, on average just for a few hours on a sunny day when the colour is white! A darker colour will ATTRACT heat not reflect!
FACTS & EFFICIENCY
The amount of reflectiveness in white paint can be up to 95-98%. There is very little difference between cheap and expensive paints when it comes to the efficiency of 'bouncing' the rays back.
Reflective paints in a darker colour (darker than a light Sand colour that is!) will attract heat to the substrate; not reflect anymore. All acrylic paints will break down in our high Australian UV in just a few years, no matter what.
