LEED certification goal

Super Therm® can achieve as many as 16 points toward LEED certification for new and existing construction. It is Energy Star and U.S. Green Building approved product.


Barrack walls/roofs

Rust Grip® and Super Therm® to prevent rusting and insulate on exterior. If located in mostly winter areas or cold regions, you can coat the interior with the Super Therm® to face the heat and hold it in. Super Therm® also deadens sound traveling between units.

Refrigerated trucks and storage units

Rust Grip® and Super Therm® on the exterior to prevent the exterior skins from heating up. If the exterior cannot load heat, there is no heat to be transferred to the interior to affect the frozen products.

Aircraft Hangars

Aircraft Hangars and all other structures coated with or without Lead-Base Paint -- Rust Grip® to encapsulate lead-base paint and rust and prevent the need for sandblasting. Apply Super Therm® to insulate. If located in mostly winter areas or cold regions, you can coat the interior with the Super Therm® to face the heat and hold it in.

Supply Boxes and Storage Containers

Coat with Rust Grip® and then with Super Therm® for heat control to protect batteries, electronics and other sensitive equipment packed inside from heat build up inside the container.

Tanks

For heat control and to stealth the heat signature for at night combat, the exterior of a tank is coated with two coats of Super Therm®, then, the desert colours are applied over this. The Super Therm® works to keep the metal skin from heating up.

One of the exhaust exits is near the hatch. When soldiers exit the vehicle in a hurry, they will sometimes grab this exhaust pipe for leverage to get out. Being an exhaust pipe, they get burned. Coat this with HPC™, then overcoat with Super Therm® to seal and toughen the surface. Over this, apply a tough urethane coating (our Enamo Grip) in the desert colour scheme.

Engine room behind the cockpit

Coat the interior side of the engine room with HPC™ and over coat with Super Therm® to seal and face the engine heat. This will eliminate the loading of this heat into the metal skin around the engine that transfers into the cockpit. Do this for the transmission box and other areas that produce heat that can affect the cockpit.

Coat the engine manifold and tail pipe

To block heat signature with the HPC™ and over coat of Super Therm®.

The entire tank frame and exposed working parts needs to have Rust Grip® applied as the primer to prevent rust development. Rust Grip® locks down directly over metal and/ or existing rust to a 6780 psi surface tensile strength to lock up and not allow air, moisture or chemicals to attack the metal that will form corrosion and result in maintenance problems.

This same application process is applied to all equipment from corrosion protection, then heat control.

Trucks and Vehicles

As in humvees, trucks and other vehicles, the transmission area sends a tremendous amount of heat into the cockpit. Coat the underside of the hump with HPC™ and overcoat with Super Therm® to face the heat source. This prevents the heat from migrating into the metal skin and it stops the transfer of this heat into the cockpit. Firewall from cockpit to engine is the same. Coat it to block heat transfer.

Ammo Boxes

Ammo boxes can be coated on the exterior and interior sides to reduce heat gain. On the interior of these boxes, we can apply the Omega Fire coating, which has been tested extensively by the Navy to stop high temperature transfer and fire temps from reaching the ammo on the inside of the box to discharge it due to extreme heat.
