The proof is in what our customers say!

JB Whipps - Jim Whipps Painting, Lismore NSW I have been involved in the painting trade since 1984, & in my 21 yrs I have used a number of roof & structural coatings. During that time I have not seen a product of this quality & effectiveness yet produced on the Australian market, until now.

During my 12 months experience with Solacoat I have painted many roofs on the North Coast, including my own. Every client has been amazed by its effectiveness and the drop in temperature has been quite surprising to all.

My experience with our own home has seen a reduction of around 6-8 degrees. The comfort level of our home has improved dramatically.

This is definitely a product that will change the way you think about insulating your home. It will not only make your home look great, it will protect your roof and improve your living standards in your home.
Solacoat is one product that I would thoroughly recommend for any of my clients, and I am looking forward to the future with this product.
Ian Artlett - Best Practice Irrigation, VIC As per phone conversation, trials have gone well, all subject to intellectual property on my project, part of which is controlling fuel temperatures, already I can think of other uses for this product in my research.
What I can report is as follows under present conditions (low 30s ambient) surface temp of overhead fuel tank went from 50c to 30c , fuel inside tank appears to have stabilized temp at 30c down from near 50c even higher at times of higher outside ambient temps, this drop in temp has some real benefits in my application, and I believe this product would work in a similar fashion on pipelines (really only long tanks to a certain extent).
Product went on well and certainly looks good, no problems with adhesion, but care was taken to remove any contamination from spilt diesel on tank surface.
At this stage, I believe the product has benefits in this application and many others in the agricultural industry. I am happy to elaborate further, with some ideas. I am most interested in agricultural uses for the product.

When time permits I will forward some photos of the tank and surrounds.

Excerpts from Customers Letters:
Bill Sipson - Depulu Wheel Reconditioners Since having the roof painted with SOLACOAT supplied by COOLSHIELD INTERNATIONAL the inside of the roof is cool to the touch. I am absolutely amazed with the difference and am looking forward to working in a cooler environment with obvious savings in the power. ( I do not think we will ever need to turn on the air conditioners again.)  Read full Letter...
 
Neil Price - Seacliff Park Foodland IGA As you know, your contractors applied the coating to the roof of our supermarket only a few weeks ago, In the past week we experienced a day where the weather was 36º however, the temperature inside the store was so cool that we only needed to operate two of our air conditioners instead of the usual four. - Read full Letter...
 
Lyn Bendle - Snooze Canberra As you predicted, our roof is no longer “baking” during the warmer months and our electricity usage for air-conditioning was much lower when compared to previous summer periods. With the roof no longer radiating heat into the building our staff morale has improved and also the lower internal temperatures created better comfort levels for customers. - Read full Letter...
  
Pat Brookes - Pimlico NSW Since having my caravan and annex painted with Solacoat the difference is extremely noticeable. Prior to this the heat buildup was unbearable especially when it was closed up during the day. Now when I come home it is nice and cool.
 
Mr Wayne Thompson - Centre Canvas, Alice Springs Solacoat is certainly a wonderful product. Before it was applied to the roof of our workshop it was impossible to work in some areas because the roof emitted too much heat. Once Solacoat was applied to the roof I could not believe the difference it made. I would recommend this product. It has great potential.
 
Scott Magill - Pioneer Hibred Australia
We have used Solacoat on the roof & western wall of one of our warehouses for the purposes of reducing the temperature inside where we store up to 700 metric tonnes in 25kg packages.

AS & SM Bruce - Temora NSW My husband and I live on a small farm ½ way between Temora and Cootamundra – about 1 hour north of Wagga Wagga in NSW. It can get very hot out here and we had to look at trying to control this in our shearing shed during the summer months.
On the day Peter was painting our shed with Solacoat it was about 40 degrees. We were checking the temp in the shed during the day while painting – it was about 38 degrees at the start – when half the shed was painted we checked the temp – still 38 degrees in the unpainted area but amazingly enough 28 degrees in the painted area.
When the shed was completely painted the degrees had dropped to an amazing 26 degrees. We can now shear & crutch our sheep in the middle of summer and we have happy shearers and workers as it makes the working environment much more pleasant.
 
Colin - Carindale Brisbane Qld Having had a dark concrete tiled roof from construction on our 5 bedroom family home at Carindale, we were faced with the issue of heat control as the air conditioning system had ductwork within the roof/ceiling area.
Having a ducted air conditioner working to overcome the hot Qld summer heat was not sufficient given the extreme temperature between the roof and ceiling. I had installed 3 wind driven ventilators and one power driven extraction fan with eave vents to reduce the temperature. After all this I was very disappointed.
A ceiling remote temperature probe showed temperatures of 55c-58c on many hot days. The request for a better air conditioner to cope with the heat seemed to be the only way. This meant a big installation cost and further increases to the running cost which were already high.
Then I researched Solar Coat on the internet. Having done my own testing with samples of the product, I had the entire roof painted. Since that day I have not had another complaint from the family about the air conditioning.
Current temperatures do not exceed 38c. A huge reduction of 20c since Solar Coat was applied.
A big thank you Solar Coat for saving a problem and making the roof look fantastic. I strongly recommend this investment to save cooling costs and improve the value of any home or building.
 
Trevor King - Lord Byron Resort, Byron Bay NSW It is our pleasure to inform you that we are pleased we had Solacoat and Rail Primer applied to the roof of the Resort 3 years ago.
The application of Rail Primer was the complete answer to the spread of rust on our roof. This is mainly caused by our proximity to the sea. Since the application of your Rail Primer no rust has occurred - It has saved us many thousands of dollars to replace the roof.
When the primer application was complete Solacoat was applied. We noticed the coolness in the top floor immediately. The kitchen area adjacent to our Restaurant is now pleasant to work in and air conditioning costs reduced.
We strongly recommend your products and commend your professional attitude to our problems.
 
Terry Andrews - Advantage Group, Black Forest SA Having come home to a closed house after a 30 degree top temperature for the day, our house was pleasantly cool, with no need to turn on the air conditioning or open all the windows.
I am looking forward to the summer with the knowledge that even if we have a power failure, we will still have an acceptable level of comfort in the house due to our roof coating.
When it was being coated, the roof temperature was 62 degrees on the uncoated side, with a temperature of 29 degrees on the treated side.
If anyone would like to call me to confirm this letter, feel free to do so.
 
Colin & Ruth - NOOSA QLD Col here from up at Noosa. Applied the paint on the weekend and despite some skepticism we are very excited with the resultant improvement in temperature. Thanks again. It’s really cooled the house down.
 
Garlick’s Heating and Cooling - Tamworth NSW We were approached to look at the air conditioning in an office block in our main street (Peel St) in Tamworth. The problem was when the outside temperature got to 35c the temperature in the office would start to rise. By the time the outside temperature had got to 38c the inside temperature would be around 28c and at 40c (outside) we would be looking at 30c plus inside the office.
The options put forward was a new air conditioning plant or to pain the roof with Solacoat paint. Because of the price difference they went for the Solacoat.
The office now hasn’t been above 23c and the thermostat is set on 22c. The tenant has noted the reduction in the running cost of the air conditioning system.
 
Gai & Garry Kerr - Dubbo NSW
Yes the Solacoat has helped keep the inside cooler. Our Jan-Feb temps can be over 38c for a week or more at a time. This summer we have been able to sleep inside every night, whereas we have often camped out when the house gets too hot. We don’t have air con but we do have the western side of the house as stone walled rooms & there are lots of big trees shading the roof.
The Solacoat has kept inside below 30c in the warmest rooms (kitchen) & today it’s 36c out and 26c in the kitchen @ 3 pm . How’s that!
 
Mr Laurie Davidson - District Ranger Conservation Commission of the NT, Tennant Creek NT I am writing this short note to let you know how pleased I am with the Solacoat product I purchased. I had my roof painted about 2 years ago and since then have saved more than the Solacoat cost in air conditioning.
I had cause to go up in the ceiling space recently around 11am. It was very hot outside and I was surprised how cool it was under the roof. I had no hesitation in recommending this product to others in Tennant Creek and there are now many satisfied users here. Thank you for a great product and money saver.

Mr AT Secker - Alice Springs Office, Bushfire Council of NT. Alice Springs NT I would like to compliment you on the effectiveness of the solar paint (Solacoat) applied to our premises nearly 5 years ago. It has proved to be a great benefit by not only reducing the temperature in the building but also resulted in a reduction in costs due to the decreased use of air conditioners.
Solacoat was applied to the main building which includes the workshop and the Atco building and we found it to be much cooler, especially where the mechanics work. During the summer months it was unbearable to work in this area but now with Solacoat applied the temperature has been reduced dramatically and is therefore quite tolerable. The increased productivity and decreased cooling costs have covered the initial cost of the Solacoat many times over.
 
Owen G Moon - Assistant Centre Manager, Settlement City Shopping Centre, Port Macquarie NSW The operation of the Centre’s air conditioning units have improved substantially and for a Centre of this size any effective efficiency generation is always seen as a positive. Read full Letter...
 
Mr David Gibson - 26 Chewings St, Alice Springs, NT I would like to inform you of the great success of your solar paint (Solacoat) that you applied to the roof of our house. With exterior temps around 40C last summer, the inside of the house remained quite comfortable and we have not got an air conditioner.
I can recommend this product to anyone wishing to reduce the internal temperature of their buildings without resorting to an expensive air conditioning system.
 
PJ Hanrahan - Civil Maintenance Manager North Coast, Railinfracstructure Corporation South Grafton NSW Rail Infrastructure Corporation has used SOLACOAT application to reduce temperatures on the following:
  • Buildings
  • Maintenance Vehicles
  • Track
The maintenance depot at Lismore utilized Solacoat on its steel tropical roof which covers the depot’s office and meal room area. This resulted in notable reduced temperature and improved comfort for staff.  Read full Letter....
