Heat Reflective Paint – Is The One You Are Buying CodeMark Certified?

on February 4, 2014

That a heat reflective paint brings about a considerable improvement in a building’s insulation properties is no news. But, does every coating that’s being sold out there in the name of heat reflection good enough? Well, you never can tell. However, what you can do is to buy one that meets the Energy Efficiency guidelines. Also, it makes sense to look for a paint that’s CodeMark certified. Any such coating is likely to live up to its name and might reflect up to 80% of solar radiation, just saying.

Moving on, while CodeMark certification is an important criterion, it’s certainly not the only one, if you know what that means – eco-friendliness, for example, should be given equal weightage, if not more. Yes, the paint has to do its work in an eco-friendly way or else, there’s no point in getting it in the first place. Meanwhile, you may also want to make sure that the paint is approved for guaranteed compliance with the Building Code of Australia (B.C.A.). That being said, heat reflective paint is of course not the only product that you should buy with caution – the same rule applies to texture coating as well.

Agreed, the criteria might change here, like it has to be resistant towards dust and moisture, but then you must see if it turns out as expected. It is also a good idea to focus on quality and that’s because if the coating is up to the mark, you might get rid of frequent paint jobs.

Fact: Astec Paints were the first to invent and introduce to the Australian market the technology of Heat Reflective Coating.
