IR REFLECTING PIGMENT DISPERSIONS
TO MAXIMIZE SOLAR REFLECTIVITY

Dark colors for façades have come into fashion, a trend you can easily see as black and dark gray paint and plasters are being used on more and more homes and commercial buildings. However, these dark surfaces tend to absorb sunlight much faster than lighter surfaces and can heat up almost immediately. The primary purpose of IR reflecting pigment dispersions is to maximize the solar reflectivity of a coated surface and to minimize heat and its negative effects on the substrate, thus keeping objects cooler than they would be with standard pigments.

Objects reflect or absorb solar energy from either ultraviolet (UV), visible or infrared (IR) light. The challenge is to reflect infrared and to absorb and reflect in the visible spectrum to produce the needed color. Total Solar Reflectance (TSR) describes how much of the sun's energy an object reflects. It is beneficial to choose pigments according to their Total Solar Reflectance value to optimize heat reflection performance.

Clariant’s IR reflective pigment dispersions suitable for façade coatings provide a broad palette of colors that allows the formulation of coatings by meeting infrared reflectivity specifications, long-term durability requirements (resistance to high temperatures, chemicals as well as weathering and environmental pollutants) while also providing rich colors.

Colanyl Oxide Black IR 531 is a ready to use black pigment dispersion with an optimized TSR value in improving heat reflection performance in comparison to conventional Oxide Black pigment preparations.
