Insulating Paints

Project Page

CCHRC evaluated two coating products, NansulateĀ® Home Protect Clear Coat and Super ThermĀ®, to determine whether they contribute insulating properties to the building envelope when applied as an interior coating. Each coating was tested to determine whether it fits the definition of a radiant barrier, changes the R-value of material, or reduces heating demand within an insulated miniature structure.
