【New】ALUCOMAT® Energy Smart


Environmental protection is the most important common issue in the world in the 21st century.  Global warming and the greenhouse effect have caused serious climate change problems due to rising temperatures.  In recent years, the frequency of extreme climates has clearly increased, and it has caused huge economic losses and considerable casualties.

British scientists predict that if the greenhouse effect is not effectively reduced, the average temperature of the earth will rise by 4°C and the sea level will rise and submerge 1/6 of the earth's land as soon as 2060.

On April 22, 2016, the "Paris Climate Agreement" signed by representatives of 175 countries around the world replaced the "Kyoto Protocol", in which once again emphasized energy conservation and carbon reduction are the common responsibility of everyone in the world.  Nowadays, all sorts of weather related emergencies, such as tornados, floods, mudslides, earthquakes or severe weather, are causing property damage or serious risk of injury over the world.  Before the energy transition and green energy development reaching significant progress, it’ll benefit to everyone to actively implement energy conservation and carbon reduction.

Heat conducted into houses 降低建築物能熱能能耗(綠建築)

The major way to reduce energy consumption of buildings is either improving the energy efficiency of building equipment or reducing the energy consumption of building evelopes.  The former includes the use of energy-efficient air conditioners and lighting, and the later includes the use of high-performance insulating panels, roofs and windows, etc.

According to statistics, about 41% of solar thermal energy enters the room from the roof and external walls.  By using energy-saving building materials the indoor temperature can be effectively reduced, thereby reducing the energy consumption of air conditioning.  ALUCOMAT® Energy Smart aluminum composite panel for exterior cladding applications is designed for this purpose. Its energy-saving surface coating adopts the "heat reflective insulation technology" developed in cooperation with one of the national research institute, ITRI, in Taiwan in conjunction with the new generation of Lumiflon® FEVE fluorocarbon resin.  It helps to reduce the indoor temperature and further inhibits the urban heat island effect, allowing the exterior walls of buildings to possess the advantages of aesthetic, weather resistance, energy saving and environmental protection at the same time.

Coating Properties

The infrared reflective pigments contained in the energy-saving Lumiflon® FEVE fluorocarbon coating reflects the infrared heat energy of the sunlight back to the atmosphere so that the substrate absorbs less heat energy, and then transfers less heat to the room. Both the energy consumption of the air conditioning and the emission of hot air can be reduced.

  • Comparison of Energy-saving Coating Specifications in Various Countries

Nowadays, Japan is the most active country around the world in the development of heat reflective thermal insulation coatings, and the Japan Coatings Industry Association (JPMA) is even more unique in the world in terms of standards and regulations for heat insulation coatings.

In October 2018, the unified specification, JIS K5603 Thermal Performance of Paint Film - Determination of Solar Absorptance with a Heat Flow Meter, has been implemented for thermal insulation coatings for roofs, and a classification standard for thermal insulation properties applicable to all colors has been established according to the brightness and solar radiation penetrating rate of the coating film.  The performance is classified into 3 grades, i.e. 1-star, 2-star, 3-star, with 3-stars being the best.  Based on this standard the users can clearly distinguish the difference in thermal insulation performance of various paints.
