Valspar Corporation has launched Flurospar, its range of enhanced solar
reflective paint for aluminum extrusion and wall panels. The coating,
which is designed to lower room temperatures of solar facilities,
decreases the amount of energy required to cool components, thus
cutting costs for facility operators.
Solar-reflective pigments are used in the coating, which, it is claimed, keep building components cooler than do bare or anodized aluminium. Free from cadmium or lead-based pigments, the Flurospar coatings can be sprayed on and require minimal touching-up, according to Valspar.
“The new Flurospar SR coatings line is an example of Valspar’s ongoing commitment to manufacture energy saving, environmentally friendly paint
coatings and the role that technology can play in meeting the needs of the green building market,” said Mary Ann Johnson, Marketing Manager for the Valspar Coil and Extrusion Coatings Group.
