ThermaCote Thermal Barrier Coating
ThermaCote® is a high-performance thermal barrier coating with superior corrosion protection that can be used indoors and outdoors for both commercial and residential applications. It is made from an advanced ceramic technology that reduces the transfer of energy. Once it dries, ThermaCote® looks like latex paint, and it has ultra-low VOCs at 5.3 G/L. It is easy to apply to any new or retrofit construction project and enhances the performance of bat insulation and HVAC ductwork to prevent hot or cool air from escaping a building.
Key Characteristics of ThermaCote®
The qualities that make ThermaCote® a superb product include:
- Breathable vapor barrier
- Reduced condensation
- Low shrinkage due to high volume of solids (12 wet mil thickness = 10 dry mil thickness)
- High solar reflectance
- High emittance
- Low dry fall rate (5–10 feet, depending on temperature and humidity)
- Lightweight (5 pounds/gallon, <2.27 kilos per 3.78 liters)
- Wide range of application (50f– 300f)
- Reduces expansion and contraction
- Max white brightness
ThermaCote® requires a sprayer that maintains an output of 2 GPM (8 LPM). We recommend removing the inline filters on the machine and in the spray gun if filters are present. This prevents clogging of the machine, unless there is a coarser filter (30 mesh) replacement. We recommend Graco® sprayers and accessories, for which we are a licensed distributor.

The Benefits of Applying Thermal Barrier Paint or Coatings
A building’s envelope is the physical barrier and interior environments that enclose a structure. The envelope is made up of a series of systems and components that protect the building’s interior space from the environment. Some of the advantages of using a thermal barrier coating on the envelope of a structure include:
- Efficient planning for your building’s envelope.
- Substantial energy savings, through increased energy efficiency on an existing building by providing extra protection for insulation that has degraded over time. This prevents hot or cool air from escaping the building, leading to less energy usage. This application also takes work off of a buildings HVAC-R unit and extends the life of their product.
- Longevity & protection. ThermaCote® seals substrates which fights corrosion, weatherization, and abrasion. Any porous substrate is able to be sealed, which extends the life of the substrate and protects it from any outside forces.
- Sustainable and green. ThermaCote® is environmentally friendly with ultra-low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a water-based acrylic formula.
