New Heat Barrier Finish
Classic Products Inc., Piqua, Ohio, offers H-R Heat Barrier metal roofing finishes for aluminum and steel. The finishes have been tested to generate temperature reductions of 50 degrees or more on metal roofing panels in comparison to conventional paint finishes in similar colors. Special pigments embedded in the coating are designed to reflect away heat rather than absorb it, so the coatings reflect the heat of the sun no matter what the color of the finish. The finishes were developed in conjunction with BASF and Ferro Corp.
