Coo-Var Solar Reflective Paint - Aluminium is a bituminous based aluminium paint used to deflect sunlight to reduce heat build up, inside and outside. It is designed to reflect and dissipate heat and sunlight on roofs. Can be used on stable felt, concrete, wood and brick.
All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from contaminants. Existing painted surfaces should be cleaned, degreased and sanded to ensure an adequate "key" is produced. Remove all loose, flaking material and treat bare areas as new substrate then prepare accordingly.
Important to ensure no sediment is left on the bottom of the can and product is thouroughly mixed.
As dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.

Is this suitable for use on an asphalt shingle roof please? I understand they should be "sealed" to allow moisture to dissipate
Coo-Var Solar Reflective Paint Aluminium can be applied directly on to an asphalt shingle roof providing it is clean and dry prior to application.

Hi, I have a dog grooming cabin....basically a wooden shed. It gets crazy hot in summer, despite open windows, doors and air cooler and fans! Do you think solar reflecting paint will help? its a sloped roof with felt Many thanks
Yes, a solar reflective paint on the roof would definitely help reduce some heat build up. On bare, pitched felt Coo-Var Solar Reflective Paint Aluminium or Coo-Var Solar Reflective Paint White would be ideally suited.

can you use on pro polycarbonate ?
Coo-Var Solar Reflective Paint Aluminium can only be recommended for application to felt, asphalt, wood, brick and concrete. There is a chance that the solvents in the coating could attack polycarbonate and result in stress cracking. Bedec Super-Flex may be more suited for your application, ensure the surface is cleaned thoroughly and lightly sanded to provide a key. Apply directly as per instructions and carry out a test area prior to full application to ensure adhesion, compatibility, etc.

Question: Can your aluminium reflective paint be applied over black jack?
This should be OK but we would recommend a test is carried out first to ensure adhesion, compatibility, etc.

Question: Can the aluminium paint be applied to polycarbonate?
No, but you can use Bedec Super-Flex for this application.
