Compare Brands

Started by two brothers in 1996, ShieldCoat is a smaller company that has established itself as a market leader in a comparatively short period of time. It offers the highest SRI rating of all brands we've compared or ever seen.

ShieldCoat is not heavily distributed although their heat reflective paint has been used widely in Australia with apparent great success. Rather than quoting dazzling figures, degrees and percentages, ShieldCoat's testimonials say more touchy-feely things like: 

'While the roof was being coated with Thermobond HRC, the workers at Oldmac Toyota remarked on the difference as results were noticed immediately.  The building was much cooler and this was felt by all working in the shed.   Cool!'

Perhaps this is a reflection of the 'family business' ethic which their website says helps them focus on clients. It could also be related to their Queensland roots.


Yes, and as an acrylic, wash up is made very easy.

Solar Reflective Index (SRI):

The SRI combines reflectivity with emissivity and is an important combined measurement of a heat reflective paint's effectiveness. This is the highest SRI rating of all brands we've compared.

All responsible pastel colours (9) including Arctic White, with an incredibly high maximum 88% reflectivity.

However, you can request your own colour which could lead to some not-so-environmentally friendly roof paint being created. While this likely keeps customers happy, we believe low reflective colours defeat the purpose of heat reflective paints.

Price tag:

$244.40 inc GST for 15 litres, and 
$160.50 inc GST for 4 litres
