skai® cool colors PLUS – Exterior films for use in extreme climatic regions

All designs of the current collection are equipped with the patented cool colors technology. It ensures that the profiles heat up much less, even in direct sunlight. A further development of the proven technology is the cool colors PLUS film. It is characterized by a 3-layer structure, which makes it even more efficient in reducing heat absorption, especially on dark surfaces.

 

3-layer construction reduces heat absorption

In contrast to conventional films with cool colors technology, the cool colors PLUS film consists of three layers.

- white reflective layer
- base layer
- 60 μm acrylate layer

Functionality of the skai® cool colors PLUS technology

Colored films basically can only reflect a part of the IR radiation. Therefore part of the radiation also hits the substrate under it. If this substrate is dark, the IR radiation will be absorbed and converted into heat. With cool colors PLUS this is prevented by the white lower film which has excellent reflective characteristics. This results in best possible values in reducing heat absorption, so even dark colors can be used in hot regions without concern. The technology also achieves excellent results in weathering due to its innovative, 60 μm thick acrylate layer with outstanding UV-protection characteristics.

Reduced heat absorption especially on dark surfaces

In comparison with existing heat-optimized solutions on the market, cool colors PLUS achieves 5 °C better results in thermal measurement. This improvement allows much more possibilities in window construction with colored profiles. Because of this extraordinary characteristic, the film qualifies itself for the use in extreme climate regions all over the world.

Safe outdoor films for components in hot climates

skai® cool colors PLUS not only achieves excellent values in the reduction of heat build-up, but also in weathering. Therefore a worldwide warranty up to 10 years applies for cool colors PLUS products. So the skai® cool colors PLUS films are the first choice for coating outdoor components in hot climate zones.
