Study of Solar Heat Reduction on a Metal Building Shown with Infrared Scanning Equipment

•  Insulation coating blocks solar radiation on this building, reducing surface temperature to the ambient 85°F, 10°F lower than white paint’s 93.9°F and 21°F lower than red paint’s 106°F.

•  Insulation coating reduces surface temperature 10°F lower than white paint, to 85°F.

•  On the air conditioned space, coating further reduces temperature by 9°F (to 73°F.
