Tawada CleanTech now provides EcoCoolRoof as an easy cool roofing solution for houses and buildings throughout Indonesia.
EcoCoolRoof is made of a combination of titanium and nanosized inorganic colorant (or known as infrared reflective ceramic colorant) which allows for heat reduction for building interiors. Also, additional hollow ceramic micro spheres further increase UV light reflection on the roof surface.
This significantly reduces heat buildup under the roof and allows for energy saving, as well as increase waterproofing. EcoCoolRoof is also easy to evenly spread out, creating creases and joints free layer for perfect waterproofing. EcoCoolRoof contained no lead, cadmium, mercury, or chrome and resistant to acid rain and chemical pollutants making it environmentally friendly product.
Traditional dark-colored roofing materials strongly absorb sunlight, making them warm in the sun and heating the building. Studies exploring the energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability of cool roofs show that in warm or hot climates, substituting a cool roof for a conventional roof can (US Department of Energy) reduce by up to 15 per cent the annual air-conditioning energy use of a single story building.
It can also cool interior spaces in buildings that do not have air-conditioning, making occupants more comfortable; reduce carbon emissions by lowering the need for fossil-fuel generated electricity to run air conditioners; and potentially slow global warming by cooling the atmosphere.
Cool roofing is the fastest growing sector of the building industry, as building owners and facility managers realize the immediate and long-term benefits of roofs that stay cool in the sun. This is because cool roof reflect the sun’s rays before it can be absorbed and converted as heat especially in warm climate like Indonesia. Further, cool roofing can offset 24 billion tonnes of CO2 and the offset provided by cooling urban surfaces affords us a significant delay in climate change (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, 2008).
