Solar Window Paint FAQ’s

Where can the Solar Window Paint be used?

It can be used on skylights, conservatories and factories where budgets are tight, or it would be impractical to install a solar reflective window film or blind.

Will it retain heat in the winter?

It may retain some heat by reflecting heat back in but such a small amount you may not detect unlike an internally installed window film where there can be a noticeable difference.

How is the Solar Window Paint applied?

After cleaning the surface thoroughly ensure surface is free from rust, moisture, oil or any other surface contamination.  The paint is applied by brush, roller or sprayer. NOTE: The surface must be completely dry and free from any cleaning residue otherwise it might not adhere correctly to the substrate and prematurely fail.

What colours does the Solar Window Paint come in?

The paint is available in a white finish only.

Is this a DIY product or professional fit only?

It’s a professional/industrial grade paint but yes it is DIY.  It’s as simple as using any other solvent based paint but take care when using any substances and read the safety instructions and take professional advice before crawling on top of any roof structures. If using internally ensure it is well ventilated or use the appropriate breathing equipment.

When is the best time to apply the Solar Window Paint?

Ideal conditions are dry, calm, avoiding direct sunlight and with no rain forecast for at least 1 hour after application at 20°C.

What is the coverage ?

9-10 square metres/litre@35 micron primer coat to be thinned by white spirits up to maximum of 25%. For maximum efficiency 2 x topcoats should be applied after the primer coat is cured.

How long will the Solar Window Paint last?

Depending on the roof type and how much sun and weathering it receives the paint can be affective and presentable for about 10 years.

Surface compatibility?

This paint is suitable for polycarbonate, glass, bitumen and plastic substrates but we would advise a long term suitability test (6 months) to ensure there are no adverse reactions especially on larger projects where more than one tin is required. We cannot be liable for any paint to surface reactions as we are not in control of what you are applying the paint to or how it is applied.
