Nippon Singapore ROOFGUARD


Roofguard is a highly durable water-based acrylic roof coating formulated with SolaReflect technology. It is long lasting, gives the roof a smooth low sheen finish and protects the roof against mould attack. Incorporated with SolaReflect Technology, Roofguard reflects a large amount of solar energy from the sun and able to reduce the surface temperature by up to 5°C*. This special property can lower heat buildup and subsequently decreases the energy needed for air conditioning.
*Temperature reduction varies from colour to colour
