As Super Therm® is the a leading barrier to heat penetration is also means it blocks up to 95% SOLAR HEAT from entering a structure or any other substrate caused by Visual Light, Ultra Violet (UV) & Infrared (IR). This leaves only ambient heat and not radiant heat.
|VOC-Compliant:||Only 67 grams/litre. Limit in Australia is Latex roof paint is 100 (CSIRO)|
|USDA-Approved:||For use in and around food preparation facilities|
|Mildew and mould:||Can withstand moisture|
|Fire tested:||“0” flame and smoke results. No off gassing (NASA)|
|Spread:||100 sq.ft./gallon on roofing and walls.
New galvanized metal/slick metal surfaces, stainless steel and aluminum — apply Rust Grip at 300 sq.ft./ gallon as a primer first, then Super Therm® at 100 sq.ft./ gallon (if rusted areas, Rust Grip at 200 sq.ft./ gallon as primer)
|Weathered metal surfaces:||(5-10 years old), no primer needed Apply Super Therm® at 100 sq.ft./gallon (if no rust is present).|
|Concrete surfaces:||If painted before, just make sure all loose or flaking paint is off first, then apply Super Therm® directly. If not painted before, seal concrete first using Super Base (HS) at 100 sq.ft./gallon, then apply Super Therm® .|
|Tar/Asphalt or Rubber Surfaces:||Seal first with Super Base (HS) at 30 sq.ft./gallon, then apply Super Therm® . Tar and asphalt will bleed oil residues into the coating, turning it brown and interfering with the insulation ability of Super Therm® if not sealed first. Super Base (HS) is water-based and, therefore, will not soften or harm the tar/asphalt but will completely fill and seal all holes, cracks and broken seams.|
|Flat Roof Systems:||Remove all loose gravel and power. wash. Watch for roofs with consistent leaking; if present, push for roofing system #1 or #2.
System #1–Apply Super Base (HS) at 30 sq.ft./gallon As you apply Super Base (HS), lay in the polyester membrane (36″ width x 360′ length) as you go. Let dry and re-apply Super Base (HS) over the membrane at 100 sq.ft./gallon. Let dry, then apply Super Therm® at 100 sq.ft./gallon for the insulation; and last apply SP Clear Protector at 250 sq.ft/gallon as a top coat. Total mil thickness will be: Super Base (HS) -21 mils, mesh-6 mils, SUPER BASE (HS 7 mils, Super Therm® – 7 mils, SP Clear Protector-2 mils 43 mills.
System #2 (solid roof, absolutely no leaks)–Apply Super Base (HS) at 30 sq.ft./gallon Apply Super Therm® at 100 sq.ft./gallon. Apply SP Clear Protector at 250 sq.ft./gallon. Total mil thickness: 30 mils
|Walls (interior/exterior):||Apply Super Therm® at 2.2 litres per m2.|
|Tinting:||Can tint to any earth-tone colours. Not medium to dark tones. Never tint to grey – the black tint will cover the ceramic particles first and block their effectiveness. Best approach is to apply Super Therm® in 2 coats, let dry, then paint a coloured paint over the Super Therm® as your finishing coat.|
|Acid/Salt-resistance:||Will withstand mild acids and salt spray.|
|High humidity:||After Super Therm® dries completely, no effect on coating.|
|UV/Weathering:||Very UV-stable, will withstand basic weathering for 20–25 years minimum|
|“R” Factoring:||Super Therm® does not an R rating because it is an insulation coating. It is equivalent to 8 inches of fibrelass and has a 99BTU rating. Blocks 99% of Infra red heat.|
|Application:||Always power wash substrate using a minimum of 3000 psi power washer to clean dirt, oils, etc. Use washing powders in washing systems and rinse well.|
