Abstract

•Paper investigates potentiality of 3paints of automotive sector for cool roofing application.•Laboratory measurements are performed for different substrates and configurations.•Acrylic paint has satisfying values of spectral reflectance (77–80%) and thermal emissivity (92%).•Numerical analyses are proposed for roof technologies with different insulation level.•Annual energy saving varies between 0.4% and 3.0% and roof never exceeds temperature of 40°C.
