ORMI-THERMAL is a water dispersion coating, containing spherical, non-porous and hollow with exceptional strength and clarity glass particles. Once the solution dries, it creates a highly reflective, waterproof membrane with a high SRI (Solar Reflectance Index).

There is a trend in building construction to incorporate so-called “cool roofs,” which significantly improve the energy efficiency of buildings and their energy-saving capacity. Cool roofs are designed to keep the surface temperatures low when the sun shines on them. The main source of heat accumulation on roofs is sunlight.
Most conventional roofs can heat up to nearly 70°C and absorb 90% of the incident solar radiation. Due to the increased heat transfer to the interior of the building caused by these high roof surface temperatures, the energy consumption of air conditioning systems has increased. In contrast, cool roofs reducen the roof temperature and demand for air conditioning inside by absorbing less than 50% of the incident solar radiation.
The following advantages are derived from the use of cool roofs:
-Reduces energy costs.
-Increases thermal comfort in rooms without air conditioning.
-Since materials suer fewer thermal shocks, the lifespan of the roof is increased by lowering the temperature it withstands.
