What is Solacoat?

Solacoat is a two-step water-based acrylic coating system that prevents your home from heating up. Better than any internal insulation, Solacoat reflects the sunrays away from the roof immediately thereby leaving the roof cool to touch and your home cooler inside.

Solacoat is non-toxic, odour free environmentally friendly and free from harsh chemicals.

Thanks to Roy and the team at Solacoat NT my house is now much more pleasant to be in during the middle of the day. The inside temperature is now a good couple of degrees cooler than the outside temp. This might not sound like much but ts made a huge difference The whole experience was easy from getting a quote to final completion, very professional. Would definitely recommend to everyone as a cost effective solution to lower heat transfer into your home...

How much will the temperature drop inside? "The Hotter it gets, the better it works"

This depends on location, surface material, its colour and degree of degradation etc etc…as well as other design factors, windows , west facing walls etc.  For metal roofs that can reach a Hot 90°C, the application of Solacoat Cream will bring the temperature to within 5-6°C above the ambient temperature, for example on a 30°C day the temperature of the roofing material will be approx 36°C. There are a number of testimonials that state such figures. We have reduced the temperature of diesel in a tank by over 30°C. Please note, that the highest performance is based on a newly coated roof.  We recommend that one checks the roof surface after 1-2 years, and if there has been little rain, and the surface of the roof has collected a lot of dust, that you give the roof surface a washdown. This will provide the ongoing coating performance.
