Insulating Additive for Paint
How it Works
When mixed into paint and applied to a surface, the ceramic "beads" shrink down tight as the water evaporates creating a tightly packed film of the "thermos bottle" like cells.
The cells are able to block heat radiation (loss or gain) and also dissipate heat rapidly preventing heat transfer through the coating with as much as 95% of solar infrared rays and 85% of ultra violet-rays being radiated back into the atmosphere. The dried paint film now becomes a thermal barrier that reflects heat while dissipating it as each microsphere is a sealed vacuum cell.
Additional Benefits: Being a ceramic impregnated film fire resistance is improved, the surface is protected from harmful UV rays, repulsion of insects such as termites and protection from the destructive forces of weather. The scrub resistance of the dried paint film is improved tremendously and the roundness of the microspheres causes them to act like ball bearings, rolling upon each other, thus allowing the coatings to flow more easily. The tough ceramic shell increases the durability of the paint that it is mixed into meaning you have to paint less often. Ceramic house paints far outlast conventional paints due to the porcelain film surface.
