  1. Is HPC™ Coating a reflector?

    No. HPC™ Coating uses only non-conductive ceramics. HPC™ Coating is designed not to absorb, but to catch and hold heat on the surface.

  2. When should I use HPC™ Coating instead of Super Therm®?

    HPC™ Coating is designed to prevent conductive heat transfer, while Super Therm® works on radiational and convective heat transfer. Use HPC™ Coating to reduce heat loss from conduction in conditions with high temperatures.

    HPC™ Coating catches and holds heat "onto" a surface. Super Therm® repels heat off of or away from a surface and does not allow the surface to load heat from the heat source.

  3. What is the best topcoat for HPC™ Coating?

    HPC™ Coating must be sealed with Super Therm® before any solvent-based topcoat can be used. For exterior use, overcoat with Super Therm®. For use in a chemical environment, overcoat with Super Therm® and with either Rust Grip® or Enamo Grip (if color topcoat is desired).
