If You Can Paint it...YOU CAN INSULATE IT !
Insulating Ceramic Microspheres
What they are and how they make paint Insulate
Each single ceramic microsphere is so small that it looks to the naked eye as if it is a single grain of flour, ( slightly thicker than a human hair).
The wall thickness is about 1/10 of the sphere diameter.
The ceramics in the HY-TECH additive blend have compressive strengths from 6500 to 60,000 psi, a softening point of about 1800° C.,
and they are fairly chemical resistant, with low thermal conductivity of 0.1 W / m / Deg.C. Hy-Tech ceramics are non-toxic and non combustible.
Hy-Tech went one step farther and improved on the ceramic microspheres by removing all the gas inside which created a vacuum.
Physics law states that nothing can move by conduction through a vacuum, since it represents an absence of matter. In effect we have a miniature thermos bottle... a microscopic hollow vacuum sphere that resists thermal conductivity and suppresses sound.
In a bulk state, Hy-Tech Insulating Ceramics look like fine talcum powder.
When mixed into paint and applied to a wall or roof, the ceramic "beads" shrink down tight as the water evaporates creating a tightly packed film of the "thermos bottle" like cells. This ceramic layer provides a thermal barrier, improved fire resistance, protection from harmful UV rays, repulsion of insects such as termites and protection from the destructive forces of weather.
Being a ceramic impregnated film, the scrubability of the dried paint film is improved tremendously and their roundness 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 longevity 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.
You can purchase Hy-Tech Insulating Ceramic Additive and mix it to any type of paint or coating adding the insulating properties of the ceramics to that paint, or use one of our convenient Factory pre-mixed paints with the insulating ceramics mixed in and ready to apply. Nothing to add simply open the can and Brush Away those High Utility Bills!
Additional Benefits of Ceramic Filled Paints: vs. Regular paint
||Conventional paint pigments are sharp edged and pack down loose as the paint film dries leaving paths for heat to pass through. The jagged edges also make for a rough surface which grabs dirt and soils easily.
||Insulating ceramic microspheres create a tightly packed dried film with minimal paths for heat transfer resulting in very efficient thermal barrier. The hard smooth ceramic shell resists dirt and being round like ball bearings they aid in paint application making paint coatings "flow".
Hy-Tech offers to industry and consumers an opportunity to change our outdated methods of protecting our buildings with conventional paint systems by offering energy efficient space age ceramic paint products that will reduce your utility bills, improve the comfort level of your home or business, and help to preserve our natural resources for future generations.
