How Dulux® Cool Roof with InfraCOOL® Technology works
InfraCOOL® reflects more sunlight before it can be absorbed as heat. Because of their large surface area, and exposure, Roof surfaces can capture and radiate the sun's energy.
† The extent to which InfraCOOL® may translate to internal benefits in warm conditions will depend on variables such as colour choice,building design (including roof pitch, materials & window placement), insulation, ventilation, occupancy use, shading, location, climate and ratio of exposed roof area to floor area.
Colour choice can still make a difference
Cool Roof White and Pastel shades are the coolest choice overall.
InfraCOOL® increases Total Solar Reflection (TSR) to make colours cooler than their standard equivalent. Higher TSR % means COOLER surface temperature.
TSR comparisons for each colour are provided on the Colour Selector and Full TSR reports including Surface Temperature estimates to ATSM E1980 are available below.
