How Does NXT Cool Zone Heat Reflective Roof Coating work to cool your home?
NXT Cool Zone is a remarkable new roof coating utilising revolutionary thermal protection technology to reduce the temperature of your home. Containing heat reflective properties NXT Cool Zone repels the heat of the sun to leave your roof surface cooler. Infused with self cleaning compounds it also retains it’s gloss and visual appearance longer.
Unpainted roof tiles, coloured metal sheeting and conventional dark coloured roof paint including black, charcoal and deep browns and reds absorb 97% of the sun’s heat.
Until now a white reflective roof coating was the only way to prevent your roof heating up. However white and highly reflective coatings are not usually acceptable from a design perspective.
NXT Cool Zone is manufactured by the multi award winning Nutech paint, Australia’s largest and oldest roof coating specialists. Nutech has spent more on roof coating research and development than all our competition combined and is backed by more than 40 years of experience.
Simply put, NXT Cool Zone reflects the sun’s heat before it can heat your roof. NXT Cool Zone can keep the surface of your roof up to 20 to 30°C cooler. Tests have confirmed that rooms below will be kept a comfortable 6 to 10°C cooler.
Protect Your Investment and Save Money
In Australia, roof colours are inspired by the rich reds, browns, terra cottas and greys typically found in our diverse natural landscale. When restoring and painting a roof owners want to restore these original colours, or upgrade the appearance of their roof to match the newest decorator colours being used by leading roof tile companies.
Colour is a vital component of building design and the deep earthy colours common in roof tiles are important to house designers and home owners. Unfortunately, traditional dark coloured roof tiles soak up the sun getting hotter as the day progresses.
When the roof space becomes overheated, this heat is transferred from hot to cooler regions. Typically this results in the heat from the roof cavity transferring to the living space and increasing the internal temperature which becomes unbearable. Due to rising energy costs, air conditioning is becoming increasingly expensive to run in terms of both dollars and resources. How would you like to choose your roof colour and know that dark colours don’t need to be hot colours, where aesthetics and functionality can go hand in hand? What you are about to read will change your thinking about roof paint and the costs of cooling your home.
NXT Cool Zone Heat Reflective Roof Coating helps keep your roof and home cooler, without sacrificing colour and design. This nu-technology reduces the amount of sunlight your roof absorbs, dramatically lowering the heat build up.
How NXT Cool Zone Saves You Money
Lower cooling requirements translate into cost savings for home owners and more:
- Water savings from reduced evaporative air conditioning
- Lower urban heat island build up resulting in reduced ozone and healthier living
- Reduced electricity usage conserving energy and valuable resources
- Encourages recycling of older viable roof structures
- Reduced product replacement costs i.e. air conditioning equipment and roofs.
Help Protect our environment with a Socially Responsible Roof Coating
Tomorrow’s Technology Today – NXT is a high energy efficient coating that reduces summer cooling costs, reduces peak energy usage and helps reduce pollution, fossil fuel usage, land fill and extends building lifespan.
NXT Cool Zone helps reduce pollution, smog, the urban heat island effect and global warming. Outdoor and indoor air quality is improved due to compliant VOC levels, no hazardous air pollutants and low odour. Used liquid coating and dry coating can be fully recycled.
To help our environment, NXT Cool Zone is the first roof paint manufactured in Australia compliant with EU and USA regulations regarding VOC content and biocides.
Volatile organic Compounds (VOCs) are organic compounds found in paints, fuels and some household products. VOCs are a major source of environmental pollution (ozone) and studies have shown that breathing air with high ozone concentrations aggravates symptoms of people with pulmonary disease and causes increases rates of asthma attacks. People with respiratory problems such as asthma, young children, elderly and persons with heightened sensitivity to chemicals may be more susceptible to illness from VOC exposure.
Superior Durability and Appearance
Nutech NXT Cool Zone is manufactured from premium 100% acrylic resins and fade resistant micronised pigments infused with saturated colour and is highly resistant to chemicals., UV light and heat. NXT Cool Zone is enhanced with surface cleaning nano technology for improved dirt resistance and water beading. The result is a next generation high performance roof coating with superior durability that is heat reflective, 100% waterproof and has a guaranteed long lasting beautiful appearance.
