Help onThermal Insulating Paints James Tan 1/10/2008
Hi All!

I did some test on thermal insulating paints and found that the paints have high reflectivity in NIR and high emissivity.

Is this possible? is there a reason for this?Did some research on it but was unable to find anything Is there any kind soul out there who is able to help?

Thanks in advance!

hytechsales.com has some products you may like to see. They use a NASA process of aluminum chips in a vacuum ceramic matrix. This provides a very reflective element in a paint product. The final surface is a painted surface but the vacuum in front of the chip provides the reflective component. I used in my house. Tested it in the same. I would need more than a forum post to explain the theory behind this product. It does work as shown on this website and the resulting R value addition is very real.
