Super Therm® Container Insulation

Super Therm® is an energy efficient product and is the most highly advanced insulation coating system available today. No other product can claim a 99.5% heat block. It's properties will perform under the harshest of conditions saving you valuable time and money thanks to a greatly reduced need for roof repair and/or replacement. The product literally extends of the life of roofs and structures.

Energy Star ratingSuper Therm® is a water-based coating (like paint), developed in conjunction with ceramic engineers from Marshall Space Center (NASA). Heavily tested, the product contains proprietary ceramics, resins, and a urethane that counteract the four methods of heat transfer: radiation; conduction; convection; and infrared. Super Therm® is a true performance coating with insulating properties and has the resistance equivalent to 8 inches of fiberglass (RE-19).

The ceramics provide insulating effectiveness through uniformity, the resins provide flexibility, durability, and heat-resistance, and the urethane acts as a moisture barrier (along with being UV-resistant). This combination results in a coating that can reflect heat and fire, and withstand the elements for a number of decades.

There is no limit to the application possibilities for Super Therm®. It can be used on metal roof structures such as warehouses, mobile homes, livestock barns, and grain bins; oil tanks; refrigeration units etc. Super Therm® can help reduce ambient temperature by as much as 40 degrees. This translates into reduced heating and cooling needs, reduced loss of animal and plant life, greater protection for storage contents, and increased life expectancy for the structure itself.

Super Therm® is a combination of high-performance, water-borne acrylic resins, which cures out completely in one week to an extremely tough, durable, non-yellowing, water-resistant coating that also provides flexibly and ultra-violet stability. Super Therm® offers toughness unmatched in the current market coupled with the flexibility necessary to meet the stresses of contraction and expansion without cracking or breaking down. This single development enables the coating to outlast all other insulation coating products-20 years or more from a single application (based on the use of recommending coating thickness and proper application methods). Other coatings will develop hairline cracks when the surface moves, through which moisture invades to develop blistering and finally peeling.

Supertherm PlatingSuper Therm's flexibility and durability is accomplished through four different types of resins used in the foundation. Two acrylic resins blended together specifically for the purpose to achieve elasticity, adhesion, and provide a water resistance to ponding water. A urethane is blended in to provide a moisture barrier and bind all the resins together for added weatherability and UV-resistance. Finally, a special additive is blended into the resin mix to create a slower dry down to avoid any surface cracking due to our load of ceramic compounds, and to give a silky finish that enhances and extends the life of the coating in all climates due to its special polymers that guard against burn out. Super Therm® can also withstand exposure to -60°F (-51.1°C) without deterioration and, according to mil thickness, up to 1600°F (871.1°C).
