Insulpaint is a water based, high quality paint that is impregnated with a special proprietary ingredient called Acrad 8. The Acrad 8 gives the paint the unusual ability to block heat transfer from the outside of the coated surface to the inside. It is this ability that allows a reduction in the internal temperature of structures that are painted with Insulpaint.
Many people ask "What kind of temperature reduction could I expect if I paint my structure with Insulpaint" and we cannot answer exactly, however you will be able to see from the following client references and customer testimonials that reductions are not uncommon.
An important point to remember is that only Insulpaint has Acrad 8, and independent testing has proven Insulpaint with Acrad 8 is superior to all other insulating coatings. Some test cases follow at the end of these sheets to justify our claims.
There are 4 characteristics that make Insulpaint so good:
1. Insulpaint reduces the Heat Load on buildings resulting in a lower Internal Temperature and can lower air conditioning costs depending on personal comfort levels required.
2. Insulpaint will keep on Looking Good. Insulpaint is guaranteed for 10 years
3. Insulpaint will work effectively for 10 years
4. Insulpaint is TIME TESTED / INVENTED IN AUSTRALIA IN 1986and PROUDLEY MADE IN WA BY CAMELEON PAINTS
5 Reasons Why You Should Use Insulpaint
To Reduce The Heat In Your Building Or Home
1. Insulpaint Will Reduce The Internal Temperature Of Your Metal Roof Building
Insulpaint is a surface coating applied to metal roofs that reflects heat back off the roof instead of transferring that heat into the building’s interior. Insulpaint has been independently tested and conclusively proven to be more effective in reducing temperature than all other forms of insulation. While there are other heat reflecting paints on the market, all of these use ceramic bead fillers to create their insulating quality. For a variety of reasons, ceramic beads don’t perform as well as Insulpaint’s exclusive ACRAD 8 formula, which has proven to reduce internal temperatures of metal roof buildings by around 6 0C on average.
2. Insulpaint can save you money on your air conditioning power costs depending on comfort levels required
Whether it be a metal roof home or an industrial workshop, Insulpaint coated roofs significantly reduce the load and power requirement of air conditioning systems. Insulpaint clients in both extreme and normal conditions continue to report substantial reductions in energy costs after coating their metal roofs with Insulpaint. Independent testing by engineering & science consultants has confirmed what these clients had found through experience. In full scale practical experiments.
3. Insulpaint Will Look Good… for 10 years
Traditional heat reflecting paints use ceramic bead fillers, which within one year often discolour and fade. The reason this occurs is because thousands of ceramic beads in the surface coating create an abrasive surface that collects dust and dirt through acid rain and pollution. Insulpaint on the other hand contains ACRAD 8, a fibrous insulating ingredient that helps Insulpaint retain a completely smooth surface. This surface facilitates the run off of dirt and grime, therefore avoiding discolouration. Insulpaint is also available in 16 different colours, giving you the final choice of what will best suit your home or building.
4. Insulpaint Will Work Effectively… for 10 years
With normal insulating paints, effectiveness is quickly lost when dirt build up reduces the reflecting qualities of a surface coating and acid rain breaks down the ceramics beads, causing the loss of the insulating air pocket. Insulpaint however continues to work effectively every year, having no discolouration in addition to insulating fibres that can’t break down. Insulpaint’s ACRAD 8 fibres are also protected by its 100% Styrene Acrylic resin, well known to be superior to all other acrylic resins in strength, durability and flexibility. Insulpaint’s resin is completely impervious to airborne pollution & extreme weather conditions, and is also non flammable, non toxic and contains no hazardous fibres. Insulpaint is also completely waterproof, but at the same time is microporous, which allows the substrate to breathe, thereby avoiding cracking.
5. Insulpaint Is Time Tested And Proven To Work
After 20 years of commercial success, Insulpaint has stood the test of time and continue to amaze clients and researchers alike. Whilst Insulpaint’s origins are based in WA, this high performance surface coating has now been applied to buildings throughout the globe, including the Middle East, South Africa, India, Japan and USA. At the request of both clients and government departments, independent testing has been conducted by the University of NSW, University of Bombay and dozens of research consulting firms, all of which have conclusively proved Insulpaint’s exceptional heat reducing properties.
