Super Therm® Specifications and Uses Print E-mail

Industrial and Commercial Uses

  • Reduces energy costs and increases comfort by coating roofing and interior or exterior walls to keep heat in during winter or heat out during the summer
  • Insulate freezers or refrigeration units to protect goods and reduce costs
  • Reduce fuel consumption with refrigerated trucks
  • Protect goods by insulating long haul trailers designed to carry perishables
  • Reduce risk of condensation on cold water pipes
  • Insulate oil and gas storage tanks to prevent evaporation and heat build-up
  • Insulate air conditioning unit outer casings to prevent reductions in efficiency due to heat build up inside the housing
  • Provide a fire-resistant coating for substrates. Super Therm® has a "0" fire and smoke spread and will not contribute to flame

Agricultural Uses

  • Reduce heat stress and increase livestock profitability by applying to all animal shelters, especially poultry, cattle, hogs, and horses
  • Insulate freezers or refrigeration units to protect goods and reduce costs
  • Protect goods by insulating long haul trailers designed to carry perishables
  • Reduce heat stress during animal transportation by applying to vehicles
  • Reduce energy costs and increase comfort by coating roofing and interior/exterior walls to keep heat in during winter or heat out during the summer
  • Insulate hot pipes against heat loss and personal injury
  • Reduce risk of condensation on cold water pipes
  • Provide a fire-resistant coating for substrates. Super Therm® has a "0" fire and smoke spread and will not contribute to flame

Residential Uses

  • Reduce energy costs and increase comfort by coating roofing and interior and exterior walls to keep heat in during winter or heat out during the summer
  • Insulate swimming pool decking on concrete to provide a cool surface to sit and walk on
  • Reduce fuel consumption with motor homes
  • Reduce risk of condensation on cold water pipes
  • Insulate air conditioning unit outer casings to prevent reductions in efficiency due to heat build up inside the housing
  • To provide a fire-resistant coating for substrates. Super Therm® has a "0" fire and smoke spread and will not contribute to flame

Application

Although Super Therm® can be applied by non-professionals, SPI recommends using a SPI certified applicator.

Preparation

  • Surface must be clean and completely dry, with no loose debris or particles, rust, dirt, oil, films or residues of any kind. SUPER THERM® will cover previous coatings if they are fully adhered to the surface
  • If over-coating an existing paint, make sure all gloss is removed from surface by sanding or minimum blast
  • Mechanically stir, as ceramics will tend to settle
  • Remove all filters from spray equipment

Application methods

  • Airless or pot sprayed: tip size .029-.032; apply in one coat using crosshatch method
  • Roller: use 3/4" nap commercial roller; apply in two coats
  • Brush: use soft bristle brush; apply in two coats
  • Vertical surfaces should be applied in two coats

Applied rate

  • 100 sq. ft./gal. (9 sq.m./gal.)

Film thickness

  • Wet: 14-16 mils (350-400 microns)
  • Dry: 8-10 mils (200-250 microns)

Temperature

  • 50 degrees F (10 degrees C) - 194 degrees F (90 degrees C)
  • 72 degrees F (22 degrees C) best

Dry times

  • 1 hour to touch at 72 degrees F (22 degrees C)
  • 4 hours to recoat

Full cure

  • 14 – 21 days

Limitations

  • Not suitable for underwater use of any kind
  • Not recommended as the only fire protection material to be used in residential or industrial construction
  • Do not use as a stand-alone floor coating
  • Do not used directly on food preparation surfaces
  • Super Therm® can be tinted, but darker colors will reduce effectiveness
