Ceramic Insulation and Industrial Protective Coatings
Our CC100 coating can be applied directly over composites with 100% adhesion and no chemical adverse effect (i.e. tar roofing, asphalt shingles, paint, etc.) providing protection against UV Rays as well as insulating. A certified testing laboratory "reported" the coating material to be extremely durable and a high quality, "heat barrier" reflecting 96% to 98% of all radiant heat. At a 16 mil thickness the percentage of radiant heat reflected would be comparable to a rating of R-20.
Conventional foam sheet insulation has a tendency to crumble and split when exposed to UV rays. However when the foam was covered with a thin coat of "Ceramic Insulation Coating" and tested the coating offered protection against the normal problems of the foam insulation therby preserving the effectiveness of such insulating materials. The coatings were also found to remain flexible at temperatures as low as -30 degrees F In also this additional coating on 1.00 pcf density foam provides the dimensional stability and compressive strength normally found in higher cost 3.0 pcf. Densities without paying the higher price.
The "Ceramic Insulation Coating “product" has been tested for adhesion corresponding to ASTM D-3359, a cross hatch adhesion test, resulted in a score of 100 %. The "Ceramic Coating" has also been tested under ASTM 04541 for pull strength using portable adhesion testers. The conclusions are that the "Ceramic Insulation Coating "product" reaches full adhesive strength prior to final cure. Further conclusions based on disbandment within the coating shows an actual stronger bond to the substrate surface.
The "Ceramic Insulation Coating Flame spread is rated 5 out of 100 according to the certified testing laboratories. Therefore the, "Ceramic Insulation Coating "product" can be applied directly to "hot" surfaces in a wide temperature ranging from 34 to 400 degrees F. without operating shut down. In addition the "Ceramic Insulation Coating "product" was tested for toxic smoke, "All exposed animals survived without sickness or irritation" concluding that the "Ceramic Insulation Coating "product" has no effects from smoke inhalation.
Insulating properties of fiberglass, wools, etc. are largely a result of the air entrapped between fibers but are reduced markedly when the material becomes wet. Moisture reduces the performance of air-filled insulators because the heat conduction of water at atmospheric temperature is more than 20 times that of air. Because the "Ceramic Insulation Coating" "product" has no air pockets, it impedes condensation, stops corrosion and has no loss of insulation properties when wet. A testing laboratory rated the "Ceramic Insulation Coating" "product” by ASTM D-1653 standards as a moisture barrier.
Chemical Resistant and Temperature control
The "Ceramic Insulation Coating" "product" is 80%+ solid, single component based high density material, low in viscosity with high insulating properties and chemical resistance. Test results have proven that one coat or 20 mil of Ceramic Insulation Coating “product” eliminates radiant heat and significantly reduces temperature (600 F to 800 F) on hot surfaces. Additional coats contribute a reduction in temperature between 400 F. to 500 F.
Corrosion of carbon steel and stainless steels under conventional insulation on commercial and industrial process equipment costs our economy millions of dollars per year to repair costs; with safety risks to personnel and our environment, as well. These dollars would do better as profit and/or reinvestment into our economy, not spent on avoidable corrosion. The use of Ceramic Coatings will reduce the risk of corrosion to the substrates to which it is applied by resisting movement of moisture and contaminates to the surface
