Blocking Heat TransferAs an exterior surface coating, insulating ceramic paints or coatings can be applied to the roof and sides of a building. This includes roofing surfaces such as metal, felt, asphalt, aluminum, and sidings made of rubber, vinyl, and aluminum. Ceramic coatings can be used on the interior of a home, too. Since most mechanical heat is IR heat, ceramic coatings can be used to prevent heat loss from inside a building. A home interior coated in ceramic paint can, therefore, reduce energy costs due to heat loss in the colder months. We estimate that a home can save up to 40 50 percent in energy costs using our product. Payback on a product like ceramic coating can come in as little as two years.
Some ceramic coatings feature additional properties, like preventing moisture migration. Some structures see up to 25 percent of HVAC costs coming from dehumidification needs, but a ceramic coating can also bring savings through moisture management. Additional features can include mold and mildew control, sound attenuation properties, and fire resistance.
Ceramic Coatings vs. Fiberglass InsulationFiberglass is the giant in the insulation industry, and the R rating to which it conforms is ingrained in the minds of contractors, builders, and code inspectors. Insulating ceramic coatings offer an alternative to traditional batt insulation. Fiberglass insulation is tested and rated at 73 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the ideal temperature for fiberglass. Under harsher conditions, fiberglass doesn't perform as well as its ratings predict.
Fiberglass is also rated in terms of thickness. Six inches of fiberglass insulation might get an R-19 rating, but how many builders will cram that six inches of insulation into four inches of stud wall? That R-19 rating doesn't account for compression of the product. Ceramic coating achieves an R-19 rating with one coat applied, and a rating of R-28.5 when the surface is coated on the interior and exterior.
Ceramic coatings have yet to become code-approved and accepted as a sole means of insulating a home, but the demand for increased energy efficiency is likely to push these products to the front of the consumer market.
