ThermoRad The sun's energy reaches earth as a combination of visible light that allows us to see color, infrared wavelengths that cause the most heating, and ultraviolet rays. White and light colored paints, including roof and wall coatings reflect the visible portion of the light spectrum. Assuming 100% efficiency the best they can do is reflect 43% of the sun's energy. A much greater amount of heat, 53%, continues beyond the coating and into our living and work areas.

ThermoRad has been formulated to reflect both the visible light and infrared radiation from the sun. It offers high solar reflectance in an unprecedented range of colors. With THERMORAD even black coatings can reach a reflection level greater than 25%, a substantial improvement over conventional black coatings that generally reflect 5 to 8 % of the sun's energy.


The figure above shows a comparison between various types of exactly color matched paints and their solar reflectivity as compared with ThermoRad. Studies clearly show that increasing solar reflectance can have a positive impact on a structures durability due to the reduction in thermal cycling stress. The reduction in coating surface temperature, through reflectance, can reduce delamination and peeling of the coating. One of the technologies used in ThermoRad (along with its unique formulation) has been recognized by the coating industry and has the distinction of winning a product innovation award. THERMORAD is a water based paint with the look and feel of conventional paints.

ThermoRad It is applied just as any other paint product using the same tools and techniques. Each gallon of THERMORAD will cover approximately 350 square feet with a dry film thickness of 1.5 mils. A minimum of two coats is highly recommended for optimal reflectance and durability. ThermoRad's adhesion and water barrier properties are far superior to those of conventional paints. It is extremely fade resistant and has built-in mold, mildew and algae barriers. There are no fumes or odors associated with ThermoRad.


Tools and work area can be cleaned with fresh clean water. ThermoRad should be stored in air tight containers in temperatures between 60°F to 75°F. Properly stored ThermoRad will have a shelf life of at least one year or greater.
