Cool Colors® and Eclipse®

Ferro's Cool Colors® & Eclipse® pigments reflect solar energy and keep the items pigmented with them, cooler. We all know that the sun's rays are absorbed by many objects, thereby making their temperature increase. Our pigments reflect much of the solar heat, providing a cooling effect and other potential benefits, such as less expansion and contraction, lower air conditioning bills, increased service life, less product degradation and improved comfort levels for building occupants.

These pigments can be combined in many ways, either with themselves, or along with titanium dioxide to yield an array of colors that can conform to state or federal specifications and guidelines and that are ideal for many applications such as "cool roofing", building exteriors, automobiles (both interior and exterior applications), industrial coatings, vinyl siding, other plastic materials, metal roofing and many other applications where solar heat reflection and energy saving properties are needed. These pigments are currently being used in the most demanding environments such as roofing applications and vinyl siding where long life warranties are issued. The federal government has seen the value in keeping buildings cooler and has issued Energy Star guidelines for roofing products.
