IR Absorption for Construction Applications

SiteCool™ Infrared Absorption Technologies

Reduces Energy & Heat Transfer

SiteCool™ Infrared Absorption Technologies for fluoropolymer roofing or wall systems reduce the transfer of heat into the interiors of architectural structures by absorbing solar infrared (IR) energy into the fluoropolymer sheet. SiteCool technology helps polymer roofing manufacturers give facility owners a new tool to address the challenge of making their sites more energy efficient.

Polymer roofing manufacturers can add SiteCool IR absorption technology to their production process in the form of a concentrate, or can choose fluoropolymer material already formulated with SiteCool. No capital investment is required. Films and sheet utilizing SiteCool technology can reduce the amount of IR energy passing into a structure by as much as 50%, while retaining light transmission levels and mechanical properties. This reduction in IR energy significantly reduces the need for expensive and energy-intensive air conditioning. Additionally, SiteCool technology provides the added benefit of lightweighting for even greater cost and energy savings.
