Solar-Reflective Concrete Topping
What is SOLACHROME® High-SRI Topping:
Beat the heat while enhancing the appearance of concrete with new SOLACHROME™ High-SRI Topping, formulated to provide a substantially higher Solar Reflectivity Index (SRI) than can be achieved using similarly colored conventional concrete toppings. SOLACHROME High-SRI Topping is a patented, trowelable cementitious topping material that cures to create a hard, durable, abrasion-resistant and colorful wear surface.
Where to use SOLACHROME High-SRI Topping:
SOLACHROME High-SRI Topping can be used almost anywhere a lower paving surface temperature is desired, and is an innovative solution for parks, plazas, pool decks, outdoor cafes and restaurants, sidewalks, theme parks, waterparks, streetscapes – wherever the comfort of customers or pedestrians is a concern.
What are the benefits of SOLACHROME High-SRI Topping:
SOLACHROME High-SRI Topping will not only reduce the heat buildup from the Sun’s solar energy, it can also be an effective way to restore and beautify existing concrete flatwork in renovation and restoration projects. Concrete is an ideal candidate for restoration, allowing designers to reuse this versatile building material and contribute to sustainable design.
Minimizing the Urban Heat Island Effect has many benefits including:
| PEOPLE |
Whether you’re serving customers or entertaining friends or family, make outdoor environments more comfortable and inviting by reducing the heat generated by concrete surfaces.
Lower concrete temperatures around landscaping can help plants stay healthier by reducing high soil temperatures in adjacent areas and keeping the air around plants cooler.
Who doesn’t want to save money? Lower concrete temperatures can contribute to reduced energy usage for cooling. For municipalities this can reduce the likelihood of brownouts and rolling blackouts.
The EPA has identified the use of cool pavement as a key tool in the reduction of the Urban Heat Island. Read more.
