6. Coating should carry Factory Mutual approval

7. Coating may require USDA approval or equivalent

8. Coating may require DNV ( Det Norske Veritas ) certification

9. Coating may require IMO ( International Maritime Organization ) certification

10. Coating may require MSC ( Marine Safety Counsel ) certification

11. Coating shall exhibit good exterior UV and weathering properties to a minimum of 10 years.

1.4 Product Data

1. Submit data in accordance with Section Two which describes coating material, method of surface preparation, method of application, location of application (shop or site), environmental condition requirements \ limitations and on site touch up and protection.

1.5 Theramal Test Reports

1. Submit documented copies of thermal test reports from certified and independent thermal testing agencies .

2. Submit certified test reports of the following: Coating shall limit thermal transfer to a rating of .31 BTU per square foot / hour / F or better when tested in accordance with ASTM C236-89 (1993) e1 “ Standard Test Method for Steady-State Thermal Performance of Building Assemblies by Means of a Guarded Hot Box “ and \ or provide a significant reduction of at least 90% in BTU conduction on all substrates when tested in accordance with ASTM E1269-01 “ Standard Test Method for Determining Specific Heat Capacity by Differential Scanning Calorimetry and ASTM E1461-01 “ Standard Test Method for Thermal Diffusivity of Solids by the Flash Method “.

3. Submit copies of third party certification for R value or equivalent.

1.6 Delivery, Storage and Handling

1. Deliver coating materials to place of application in original, unopened container, bearing name of manufacturer and product identification.

2. Store materials off ground, under cover and at a temperature above freezing.

3. Transport and handle any prior coated surfaces with due care to prevent damage.

2. Products

2.1 Materials

1. Super Therm® Ceramic Insulation Coating manufactured by Superior Products International II, Inc. and distributed by Eagle Specialized Coatings And Protected Environments or equivalent, meeting the requirements of Section One preceding.

2. Super Therm® is a unique combination of high performance aliphatic urethanes, elastomeric acrylics, standard acrylics and resin additives in a water based formula.

3. Super Therm® is designed with four separate ceramic compounds for insulation from radiant heat, reflection, conduction and convection.

4. Super Therm® ceramics are not the rough multifaceted type as the one found in other coatings, Super Therm® ceramics are ground to form microscopic spheres. The spherical shape permits the 4 types of ceramics to settle very tight together, not allowing air to interact between the ceramics; thus "plating".

2.2 Certifications

1. Super Therm® meets the following ASTM certifications :

B117 450 Hour Salt Spray ( Fog ) Passed
C177 Thermal Conductivity Passed
C236-89 (93) Thermal Transmittance \ Conductance Passed
