BOYSEN® Cool Shades™

DESCRIPTION: BOYSEN® Cool Shades™ is a heat reflective colored roof coating that is water-based & has low VOC. It utilizes the technology of infrared-reflecting pigments that repel infrared light before it turns into heat. To maintain the heat reflective effect over time, Cool Shades™ is designed with an all-acrylic binder that provides excellent dirt pick up resistance.
 
HOW IT WORKS:
 
Infrared Reflective Pigments
 
BOYSEN® Cool Shades™ is designed with highly engineered infrared-reflecting (IR) pigments making it possible to create greens, blues, yellows, grays, and other shades of roof coating while reflecting infrared light and reducing heat build up. A paint film containing infrared-reflecting pigments will stay cooler than one containing non-reflective pigments of the same color. The ability of a colored object to reflect infrared light can be quantified through Total Solar Reflectance (TSR).

Dirt Pick-up resistance – The ability of IR pigments to reflect infrared light is affected by how long does the paint film stays clean. BOYSEN® Cool Shades™ all-acrylic technology is designed to keep the film durable and dirt pick-up resistant.
