Why is Thermoshield insulation unique?
Thermoshield’s ceramic coating properties provides outstanding adhesion, durability, high flexibility as well as high electrical and thermal resistance. As Thermoshield is chemically inert, it also has the ability to withstand the damaging effects of acids and other chemicals, as well as exposure to oxygen and water.
Compressive streigth makes ceramics good structural materials. Hardness, abrasion resistance, imperviousness to high temperatures and extremely caustic conditions allow ceramics to be used in special applications where no other material can be used.
Thermoshield isn’t simply a top quality white paint – it’s a thermal ceramic coating that can be used to resolve corrosion issues and/or prevent major heat transfer in any environment.
Thermoshield was the first manufacturer of external insulation coatings to gain ISO:14025 accreditation. This Environmental Product Declaration assures that Thermoshield is suitable for rain wateer harvesting as well as for use in food industries.
Thermoshield has also been recognised by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) and also by Good Environment Choice Australia (GECA) with Green Star rating.
Thermoshield re-radiates heat off a substrate and reflects damaging ultraviolet light.
The ceramic thermal barrier properties of Thermoshield are due to millions of hollow micro-ceramic beads that cluster together and create dead air space. The success of Thermoshield is due to its ability to counter ‘radiant heat’ transfer. Thermoshield remains effective when it becomes tarnishes and address full solar spectrum.
Thermoshield is unique as it has ability to offer year round energy savings due to its high insulation properties.
A Univerity of Melbourne study of Thermoshield has an additional benefit unseen in other products. This benefit is the ability of the product to improve the retention of heat within a building during colder weather.
Ceramics are chemically stable (inert) – Thermoshield ceramic coating has the ability to provide protection against corrosion in extreme environments.
Thermoshield also creates a non-permeable, flexbile (elastomeric) membrane which acts to encase the substrate, eliminating exposure from corrosive elements such as chemicals, acids, salts, water and oxygen. This will significantly prolong the life of your asset – particularly in coastal areas or highly caustic environments.
When metal surfaces are exposed to extreme flunctuations in temperature, the resultant movement “thermal shock” in the substrate leads to join fractures and metal contortion, resulting in leakage in metal roofs causing permanent damange. By regulating the temperature of the coated surface the structural integrity is maintained.
Water harvest is not compromised when capturing “Potable Water” (drinking water) because Thermoshield is water-based and environmental friendly.
