LOW-E LACQUERS FOR TENT CONSTRUCTIONS
Save energy with ROWA Lack: ROWA Lack is expanding its portfolio in the ROWALID® TIM range. In addition to silver and gold metallic effect lacquers the portfolio now also includes low-e (low emissivity) products for lacquering soft PVC-coated fabrics.
Pinneberg/Germany, April 16th, 2021 – Sustainability is of utmost importance at ROWA Lack who demonstrate this not only through certification in the fields of environmental and energy management according to DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 and DIN EN ISO 50001:2011 and a silver medal Ecovadis CSR rating (Corporate Social Responsibility), but also through the recurring development of sustainable product solutions.
With ROWALID® TIM-95210 a solvent-based product with excellent low-e properties is now available to customers. Corresponding lacquering of PVC-coated fabrics gives a diffuse infrared reflexion of about 60% and an emissivity of less than 0.3. Current standard products have a reflexion of only 5% and an emissivity of about 0.9. One example of use for this special ROWALID® TIM-95210 property is the thermal regulation of tent structures. If the low-e coating is applied to the outside of the tent, heating by solar radiation will be reduced which will in turn reduce, as a consequence, the energy requirements for air conditioning. Alternatively, if the low-e coating is applied to the inside of the tent, less heat escapes from the tent to the outside thus reducing heating requirements.
In addition to the above-mentioned properties, ROWALID® TIM-95210 has high flexibility and very good interlayer adhesion – important properties for the durability of the lacquered goods. The use of SVHC solvents was also completely dispensed with in the development of the new lacquer.
