Science is revolutionising the world of construction by creating products as interesting as thermal or heat-insulating paint. If you are wondering what the hell this material is and why it can help you, we will reveal a fact: with thermal paint you can save up to 40% in energy.

If you need to improve the insulation of your home, save on light and heating, and you did not know about the existence of this paint or have doubts about its application or effectiveness, take a look.

So today we’ll find out more about it here at the 

Let's get started!

Radiant barriers can be very effective in reflecting radiant heat, but do little to prevent heat from conduction. Radiant heat is like the heat of the sun or other sources of high heat. Think of your skin in the shade on a hot summer day. Shade blocks out radiant heat. But if the temperature is 40°c and the place is very humid, you will still be hot even in the shade. Because of this, radiant barriers work well when it's sunny and can reduce the attic temperature substantially when installed on the roof.

Now we’ve decided to apply it… Which is the best Insulation paint?

When choosing a product we usually want the best. It is true that in certain things we can skimp but not on thermal paint if we are looking for a 100% effective result. Applying the product is going to take some time and we have to make the most of it with a paint that will really work.

Maybe you are wondering how to apply the Insulation paint?

This material is applied like any other acrylic paint. We detail the step by step:

1.    Clean the application surface thoroughly.

2.    Shake the Insulation paint but be careful! Always do it manually and gently. Do not use a mechanical beater as this could damage the properties of the product.

3.    Apply the paint with a brush or roller by diluting it with 5-10% water. You will need to apply 2 to 3 coats. The full effectiveness of this material is achieved with a quantity of approximately 1 litre/metre2. To give you an idea, the 4 litre format will cover about 4 square metres.

4.    Wait 12 hours to place furniture and decoration after painting The micro-ceramic balls in this paint can make the finish on the wall not quite fine but have a rough effect that is almost imperceptible to the touch.

If you are looking for a strong tone it is best to paint with the white paint and once the work is finished and dry finish with the plastic or acrylic paint you like. If you opt for a single-coat colour you will save work!
