High quality raw materials give the ClimateActivePaint coating a high elasticity in the temperature range from -40°C to +150°C. In such way low room temperatures are possible in the hot summer months. The cooling ClimateActivePaint ThermoActive roof coating can be used on many types of roofs, such as dwellings, industry buildings, office buildings, hospitals, etc.
Previously, Caterpillar Asia was facing problems with a hot environment inside their warehouse due to the warm weather and consequently there was the need to use energy to reduce the warm temperature inside the warehouse. To reflect heat, sunlight and UV for reducing energy consumption, Caterpillar applied Thermo Active Roof Coating on their warehouse’s metal roof.
Before coating the roof surface temperature was 63.5°C. After coating the roof surface temperature went down to 40.0°C.
About the Energy Efficiency Award Challenge
The Energy Efficiency Award Challenge was organized by the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce in June 2018. The Award Challenge intended to promote successful German-Singaporean partnerships in the building sector. The five projects that have been selected show how innovative German energy-efficient solutions have led to increased building quality, reduced energy costs and lower CO2 emissions levels in Singaporean buildings.
The one-day event comprised two site visits in the morning, a workshop in the afternoon and an evening reception. At the evening reception three of the five projects that made it to the finals have been awarded for the use energy-efficient technologies “made in Germany”.
The Energy Efficiency Award Challenge is part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative of the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to recognise the positive impact German solutions have on Singapore’s efforts to become more energy efficient.
