Roof Coatings that Reduce Air Pollution

Iso Paint Nordic developed ClimateCooler Catalyst – a combined paint and sealant roof coating. Catalyzers within the coating use UV light from the sun and humidity from the air to break down harmful nitrogen oxides, known as NOx gases, into harmless salts. At the same time, the coating helps to reflect more of the sun’s rays to reduces surface temperatures on roofs by up to 30%, according to the company. This keeps roofs and buildings cooler, reducing energy costs. According to Iso Paint Nordic, the coating’s cooling effect also extends the life of treated surfaces.

Why you should care

Cities around the world face problems with harmful air pollution. If applied on all roofs, this solution would substantially reduce NOx gases in cities. The coating can be applied on a wide range of surfaces and the catalytic effect works in all climates, opening up a global market.
