On what materials can Nygra Cool Coatings be used?

Can Nygra Cool Coatings be used on surfaces other than roofs?

Can any white paint be used as a cool roof?

White paint has natural reflective properties, so buildings and other types of facilities can achieve heat reduction using standard white acrylic paint. However, many of these paints crack within months under extreme heat conditions which decreases their effectiveness and lifespan, and reduces your ROI.  In addition, standard acrylic white paints easily collect dirt which also reduces effectiveness and increases maintenance costs. When selecting a cool “paint” it is important to choose a coating with both high durability that resists cracking and low surface tension that allows it to be washed easily by rain.

How does a black cool coating reflect the sun?

Typically, the color black absorbs the sun. However, Nygra has developed a revolutionary advanced polymer formulation that enables even dark colored coatings to reflect the sun.  Nygra Black has the highest CCRC rating of any black cool coating on the market today.

How many coats are needed?

Nygra Coatings requires just one thin 2mil coat, which is 80% thinner than other cool paint applications.

How are Nygra Coatings applied?

Our coatings are applied using a standard spray gravity feed and require just one thin 2mil coat.
