According to the company, the paints could reduce the energy needs of industries and homes if applied properly in both the interior and exteriors of the building.

“We are not talking of only heat reduction, even the cases of cold, you will realize that it is applicable even in temperate regions where you can even conserve the het within the building so it is multifunctional,” he added.
The product ranges from KOFATERM White, KOFATERM Grey, KOFAKOR Anti-Rust and KOFABIO which all come with a six-year warranty.
