Solar reflective index
Benefits of roofs and reflective surfaces:
- Remarkable improvement in thermic comfort conditions within non-air-conditioned buildings.
- Reduction in peak electricity demand, leading as a result smaller equipment.
- Life expectancy of the roof system is expanded, reducing maintenance costs.
- Mitigation of the island heat effect between 1-2ºC, since less heat is transferred to the surrounding air.
- Reduction of pollution and CO2 emissions.
Materials with Acesco's organic coating contain information of the Solar Reflective Index
If you require information on a particular color, please consult the following e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The list of substances that are observed in the downloadable document corresponds to the inventory of raw materials used in Acesco's production processes. This shows the CAS number (Chemical Abstracts Service) as a sole numeric identifier, which designates a single substance, which has no chemical meaning, and which links to a large amount of information about that specific chemical.
This list was made through the review of the raw material safety data sheets and the SIMAPRO 8.3.0 software.
Among the relevant aspects for energy modeling in buildings are the thermal properties of the materials, which are presented below:
U: Heat transfer overall coefficient of the construction element
R: Global Thermic Resistance
Note: Theoretically calculated information for coated materials.
The recyclability and other characteristics of steel make it one of the most widely used materials in the world. Some of its characteristics are:
- It has excellent mechanical and structural properties;
- It is easy to weld, mechanize, form in cold and hot conditions;
- It is sustainable since it is 100% recoverable, due to its magnetic properties.
- Comes from a mineral that is highly available since iron represents 5.6% of the earth's crust and its mines are distributed throughout the world.
- It is 100% recyclable, without losing its characteristics. It is the most recycled material in the world.
- 650 million tons of scrap metal are recycled each year. Recycled steel content in steel products can range from 5% to 100%.
- About 75% of steel products that have been manufactured to date still remain in use.
- In household appliances, 50% of the steel used is recycled. In machinery, almost 90%. In commercial and industrial buildings, steel recycling levels of 98% can be achieved.
Steel recycling ensures that the value invested in raw materials remains well beyond the life of the product. Hence, steel becomes an almost inexhaustible resource for society.
Guarantee proper disposal of generated wastes.
