Comparing Insulative Systems with Oilfield and Food Processing Example Projects
Conventional insulationConsists of mass insulation for protection of heat transfer by conduction. Insulation is applied to the perimeter, walls and ceiling of a building. Since heat travels from a hot to a colder environment, absorbed heat energy transfers into the building (day time temperatures are lower outside than the ambient air temperature). Ordinary construction materials absorb 90 to 95% of the heat from solar radiation. The thicker the mass insulation, the more resistance to energy transfers.
Ceramic Insulation Coatings
Our Ceramic Insulation coating prevent 90 to 95% of the energy from solar radiant energy ever penetrating the surface, due to its high reflectivity. The primary functions of Ceramic Coatings is to control radiant energy transfer. It's better to prevent than to cure. As a result, Ceramic Insulation Coatings has significantly cooler temperatures because it absorbs up to 85 to 90 % less heat.

Ceramic Insulation Coatings can be applied on a surface with temperatures up to 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Shutting down operations is not required.
The ceramic insulation crystals in the hand reflect the heat from the blowtorch and protect the hand from serious burns. The picture demonstrates dramatically the isulative properties of ceramic insulation. Ceramic Insulation Coatings significantly reduce surface temperatures controlling radiant heat by up to 95%
