Tikkurila ClimateCooler roof coatings


It has been said that cool roofs are one of the quickest ways with lowest cost to reduce our carbon emissions and begin the hard work of slowing down climate change.

Tikkurila now offers an intelligent roof-painting system that reflects solar radiation back into space. Intelligent roofing reduces the need for air conditioning, and has a positive effect not only on the environment but also the indoor climate of buildings, and reduces energy bills.

ClimateCooler reflects up to 80% of the sun’s infrared radiation compared with a black bitumen roof. The exact amount of reflection depends on the painting system, color of the coating and the type of roof and roofing material.


Case study in Copenhagen

A hotel in Central Copenhagen has two equally large wings in its building. The roof of one of the wings was treated with ClimateCooler, while the other was left untreated. The roof area of both wings is 150 m2.

According to a case study, the hotel has been able to cut annual CO2 emissions by 27 tonnes after the application of ClimateCooler. This can be converted to driving seven times around the world with a small car.  In addition to the benefit for the climate, the hotel has also achieved 10% cost savings.
