In April, Svenska Aerogel Holding AB participated in the American Coatings Show, in collaboration with distributor Van Horn, Metz & Co. The exhibition, which takes place in Indianapolis, is the leading North American event in the coatings industry. Here, Svenska Aerogel was able to inform several manufacturers about how Quartzene® benefits Cool Roof solutions.

This year’s exhibition was the first since 2018, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was well-attended and lasted for three days. Because of this, there were good opportunities to inform potential customers about the benefits of Quartzene®. The fair participants showed a particularly great interest in Quartzene® in Cool Roof products, i.e. sun-reflective materials and colours.


Joakim Wanner, Sales Director at Svenska Aerogel:

– The fair was successful, as we were able to make several new contacts in the North American coatings industry. The use of Quartzene® in Cool Roof paints attracted a lot of attention – partly due to Quartzene’s® insulating properties and partly due to the material's high SRI index (solar reflectance index).


Quartzene® is a crucial additive in Cool Roof solutions. Cool Roof products are especially beneficial in hot climates, as they lower the temperatures of buildings and thus save both energy and cost. They can also reduce the urban heat island effect, as well as the formation of smog.


– During the exhibition, Van Horn, Metz & Co's sales funnel could also be discussed, as they have several interesting projects under way with Quartzene®. One important project is in the Building & Construction segment. This project is in the latter part of the pilot phase, according to Svenska Aerogel's sales process, says Joakim Wanner.
