ClimateCooler – Energywise treatment for roofs

Quick gains, long-term solutions

Environmental regulations are getting increasingly strict everywhere around the world. At the same time, consumers expect solutions that are environmentally friendly.

Energy neutral buildings are being constructed, but the existing building stock still accounts for 40% of total CO₂ emissions on a global scale. It has been said that cool roofs are one of the quickest ways with lowest cost to reduce our carbon emissions and begin the hard work of slowing down climate change. Tikkurila now offers an intelligent roof-coating system that reflects solar radiation back into space. Intelligent roofing reduces the need for air conditioning, and has a positive effect not only on the environment but also the indoor climate of buildings, and reduces energy bills.

It usually takes years before energy-saving solutions start providing returns on investment, but Tikkurila ClimateCooler has immediate effect. The investment is relatively low, both in terms of time and money, meaning that the energy saving properties of the new roof-coating system are quickly transformed into actual savings. The majority of solar heat radiation is infrared radiation (IR).

ClimateCooler reflects in average up to 80% of the sun’s IR radiation compared with a conventional black bitumen roof. The exact amount of reflection depends on the painting system, color of the coating and the type of roof and roofing material. The warmer the climate, the bigger the effect!

ClimateCooler – Energywise treatment for roofs

Unique product range

Tikkurila ClimateCooler is a water-borne solar-reflection roof coating. Using this coating is a smart way to manage the energy consumption of buildings and to save money – andthe planet. The Tikkurila ClimateCooler roof-coating system has a documented effect proven by internationally recognized laboratories. The “Cool Roof Paint” is based on a technology that enables the surface to reflect solar heat radiation.

The overall quality, service life and functionality of the roof are also significantly improved. Roofs treated with ClimateCooler have lower temperature, which requires less energy to cool down the air entering the buildings' air conditioning system. ClimateCooler treatment reduces the need for cooling, and translates into financial savings.

ClimateCooler is a "Cool Roof Paint" with characteristics that enable the surface to reflect up to 80% of the sun's rays.

  • The cost of cooling down buildings is reduced significantly.
  • The roof surface will last longer because it is not exposed to severe external heat. 

ClimateCooler treatment is also beneficial to the climate. No cooling means more savings and less CO₂.


Two product families – Uni and Flex

Tikkurila ClimateCooler products are on offer in two families – Uni and Flex. Both have the same benefits related to the reflection of the sun’s radiation, and both are available in the same colors black, light gray, dark brown, tile red, white and anthracite. The difference lies mainly in their areas of application.

The gloss grade of the products in the Uni family is matt, and they are designed for most normal roof types, such as concrete roof tiles, fiber-cement sheets and primed steel sheet roofs. The products in the Flex family are also matt, but they are more suitable for treating degraded roofs and flat roofs covered by e.g. bituminous felt. This is due to the fact that the Flex products have a higher elasticity, specially developed for difficult substrates.

Superior ClimateCooler benefits

  • Lower temperature on the roof surface
  • Improved indoor climate
  • Lower energy consumption for cooling down buildings
  • Lower CO₂ emissions
  • Good bonding properties
  • Extends the service life of the roof with many years.
