We manufacture a complete line of coil and extrusion coatings that comply with Energy Star guidelines and can contribute to points in LEED, which help make your projects more energy efficient and sustainable.


Our industry leading silicone-modified polyester, CERAM-A-STAR® 1050, along with our 70% PVDF product TRINAR®, are available in our COOL CHEMISTRY® Series which contain ceramic infrared reflective pigments. These special pigments are designed to reflect infrared energy while still absorbing visible light energy, thus appearing as the same color yet staying much cooler. When COOL CHEMISTRY® Series paints are used on metal roofing, the result is a sustainable building material that can lower air conditioning costs, reduce peak energy demand, and help to mitigate urban heat island effects.

Increased energy efficiency, same reliable performance

All of our products that utilize infrared reflective pigments in our COOL CHEMISTRY® Series of coil coatings have the same exceptional performance as the standard versions. For years AkzoNobel has served its customers worldwide by creating the right chemistry with products such as TRINAR® and CERAM-A-STAR® 1050 product lines. With our COOL CHEMISTRY® Series of coatings, we  continue  to  offer  the  unparalleled  durability   of  TRINAR® and CERAM-A-STAR® 1050 in  formulations which reduce energy consumption in buildings, thus lowering costs while protecting natural resources and help reduce pollution.
