Coatings that are infrared or near-infrared reflective reflect the solar radiation’s heat-producing wavelengths. Energy from wavelengths in the near infrared area is the main contributor to the buildup of heat from the sun on exterior surfaces.
IRR coatings reflect infrared wavelengths rather than absorbing them, which helps to prevent a rise in temperature on surfaces exposed to the sun.
The new paint technology is appealing to architects, builders, and those who care about the environment because reducing heat build offers a variety of advantages, from cooling buildings to boosting comfort. In order to get IRR characteristics in coatings, pigments are essential.
This is so that near-IR radiation can be reflected by the pigments used in IRR coatings, such as mixed metal oxides or titanium dioxide.
More near-IR wavelengths are reflected from the surfaces of buildings or other structures that have coatings with higher total solar reflectance, or TSR. The TSR value of an efficient IRR pigment will range between 40 and 70 percent.
The bulk of today’s coatings employ titanium dioxide as their white pigment because it is a relatively safe substance and is cheap. Moreover, it reflects well in the near-IR band.
A coating’s TSR value can be significantly lowered by even small levels of carbon black, which has a TSR value of around 5% and should be avoided in all IRR coatings. Many industrial coating producers are already using this innovative paint technology for the applications of their clients.
The Global Infrared Reflective (IR) Coatings market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Chromium Oxide Green 30C659, a new specialty from Shepherd Color, was introduced. Chromium Oxide Green, commonly known as C.I. Pigment Green 17, is a compound that is included in chemical registries all over the world and is widely employed in high-performance colour matching.
The Arctic IR Reflective series of pigments, which have become the industry standard for use in “cool coatings” due to their potential to lower energy use in building products, now includes Green 30C659.
Shepherd Color’s Green 30C659 uses its Dynamix process, which eliminates the labor- and energy-intensive phase of grinding pigment during development, scaling, and mass production.
Green 30C659 is entirely inorganic; it doesn’t contain any organic dispersion aids or resins that could impair the functionality of systems using the pigment. The pigment is a key component of any environmentally friendly coating or plastic system due to its special combination of qualities.
High-performance coatings, including coil coating, extrusion spray, automotive, industrial, architectural, powder, and other coatings, are frequently used with Green 30C659. Moreover, it can be utilised in engineering polymers and plastics, particularly in thin films and fibres.
The pig-ment has the following qualities and is designed for simple dispersion: High total solar reflectance, high opacity, and heat stability characterise the colour dark green. compatible with a wide range of polymers, water, and solvent systems.
Green 30C659 works well with Shepherd Color’s other cutting-edge Arctic IR Reflective pigments to give consumers more choices for inorganic, long-lasting, and weatherproof colour palettes.
