Innovative GS graphene paint is designed to replace gas boiler radiators. To effectively heat the room, a layer of G Therm paint with a thickness of only 100 microns can be applied to the floor or ceiling, anywhere on the wall, ceiling or floor.
How does it work?
Infrared surface heating system: The G Therm paint layer has a high heating efficiency when connected to alternating or constant voltage.
Are G Therm coatings effective?
The thermal power is determined by the surface area that radiates heat.
About 60 percent of G Therm heat is released in the form of infrared radiation energy. This allows warming up the room to a comfortable temperature level with very little energy consumption. Radiators are no longer needed, and gas central heating systems become redundant.
How is the connection to the heating coating carried out?
Simply apply an even layer of G Therm paint over thin copper self-adhesive strips, connect them with a cable to a low-voltage transformer, connect the power from the mains, and the heating system is ready.
Other G Therm uses
The G Therm heating system can be used to effectively eliminate dampness in the building structure, i.e. walls, ceilings, windows, corners, etc. It is also highly effective against mould and rust.
What is G Therm paint?
It is an acrylic water-based graphene paint, ready to be used. The paint is black or dark grey in appearance due to carbon content. It does not contain solvents or toxins. The paint dries in less than 24 hours and then can be plastered or painted over in any colour of choice.
The efficiency of such heating is close to 100%.
The paint was developed jointly with Rustins.
Easy application: the coating can be applied in any way.
Temperature range: up to 200 degrees Celsius.
Binder: pure acrylics.
Electrical resistance: 1,0-2,0 Ohm/ Sq.
Voltage range: any voltage, AC / DC, from 1 to 240 volts. Depending on the resistance of the heater layer.
Thickness of single layer coating: 80-100 um
Coverage: 1L / 6 sq m
The dry matter content is less than 25%, which dramatically increases the elasticity of the coatings and their service life.
Application examples: heating layer for walls and ceilings, plasterboard coating, de-icing systems, transport, pipelines, industrial equipment with any curvature of the surface, railway equipment.
Application in the heated coating G-THERM as a conductive component is used Pure Graphene GS, which gives the heated coating the ability of rapid heating with high efficiency.
G THERM is highly reflective in the infrared range. This important property makes it possible to dramatically increase the efficiency of heating a room by reflecting heat and reducing heat loss.
Due to the effect of the PTC (positive temperature coefficient) of the G THERM heating coating, energy consumption decreases as it heats up, thereby significantly increasing the efficiency of the heating coating while reducing energy consumption.
G THERM heaters are self-regulating intelligent coatings.

The GS PWM controller is an electronic heating power controller that converts a constant voltage into voltage pulses with a certain width.
The width and frequency of the pulses determines the electrical power that the G Therm coating consumes when heated.
The GS PWM controller solves the main problem of resistive heating, namely smooth stepless regulation of heating power at high current values up to 50 amperes.
The controller is absolutely silent and has a low-voltage control function, which allows you to use the controller with any types of thermostats, from conventional gas boiler thermostats to smart thermostats and microprocessor-based smart home control systems.
Power control is possible in the range from 1 to 100%, which makes it possible to smoothly adjust the temperature and power consumption of the G Therm heater.
Heating G Therm coatings installed in different rooms can be connected to a single source of constant voltage, which dramatically reduces the cost of the entire heating system of the house.
GS PWM controllers can be installed in close proximity to the heated G Therm coating, with the help of a built-in potentiometer, it is easy to adjust the required heating power.
Switching on and off the heated coatings, maintaining the desired temperature in the room, can be carried out using a smart thermostat or any other thermostat.
A smart heating system is an advanced way to control heating from a smartphone for your home or building.
A thermostat requires a multi zone set up that connects to your Wi-Fi network which allows you to control the temperature of individual rooms wirelessly and remotely.
Smart thermostats also have the ability to automatically adjust to the temperatures outside by collecting and tracking weather data. This feature is called weather compensation and will help you stay warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s warm.
Depending on the smart heating system you use, you can control the heating using an app on your smartphone, tablet, computer or remote control.
A smart thermostat gives you more control over your heating by allowing you to control the heating using a smartphone or any other smart device from a different room or a remote location.
When you set up a multi zone, you can also heat the whole house or choose specific individual rooms. Some smart thermostats will learn your routine over time and suggest ways for you to reduce your bills.
Thanks to the possibility of low-voltage control, GS PWM heating power controllers can be connected to microprocessor control system for a smart home, to control modules using Wi-Fi or mobile Internet, to various timers and to any other controllers.
A smart home is a residence that uses an automation system to (remotely) monitor and manage internet-connected home features like access control, security systems, heating, lighting, climate, entertainment systems, and appliances.
Smart home systems often come with self-learning skills so they can make adjustments according to the residents’ schedules and preferences. By turning off energy-using devices such as lights and television, and adjusting heating or air conditioning, smart homes can help reduce energy-related cost savings.
• G Therm infrared heated coatings are fire safe and environmentally friendly.
• Use of G Therm in residential properties requires low voltage supply no greater than 50 volts, which is entirely safe.
• When heated, the coatings emit no volatile chemical compounds or odours. This is safeguarded by Rustins’ strict quality control during the manufacturing process and use of high-quality acrylic binders.
• In the event of overload or short circuit, G Therm heated coatings connection diagram makes provision for mandatory use of automatic shutdown systems. Use of temperature control systems facilitates significant reduction of energy consumption as well as safety of heated coatings.
• In the event of flooding or dampness, the room must be made completely dry and integrity of the coating checked before connecting the coating to low voltage electricity supply. If the heated coating is damaged, an additional layer of G Therm paint must be applied over it.
• Low voltage connection, automatic switches and thermostats, safe heating temperatures of up to 80° C (for residential properties) make G Therm coatings fire safe.
Long-wave or far infrared rays are part of the spectrum of solar rays and are invisible to the human eye. Long-wave infrared radiation has waves with a length of 4 to 400 microns, among which 90 % of the waves are 8-14 microns long.
The infrared spectrum with the region of wavelengths of about 8 to 14 microns has a truly unique beneficial effect on the human body. This part of the infrared radiation corresponds to the radiation of the human body itself with a maximum wavelength of about 10 microns.
Several decades ago scientists in the field of aerospace conducted research on the conditions of human existence in space under zero gravity, vacuum, extreme loads and low temperatures. It was then discovered that a necessary condition for the normal functioning of the human body is to receive waves of solar radiation with a length of 8-14 microns (IR rays). Therefore, long-wave infrared rays are called "life-giving sun rays". These rays help the body to maintain temperature and acid-base balance.
By affecting the human body in the long-wave part of the infrared range, a phenomenon called "resonant absorption" can occur, in which case external energy will be actively absorbed by the body. As a result of this effect, the potential energy of the body cell increases, and unbound water leaves it (lymph outflow increases), the activity of specific cell structures increases, the level of immunoglobulins increases, the activity of enzymes and estrogens increases, and other biochemical reactions take place. This applies to all types of body cells and blood.
Due to reflex reactions, IR rays have a resorbing, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and analgesic effect. IR rays, when exposed to the human body, accelerate the movement of electrons in orbits and cause a thermal effect. The heat of IR rays penetrates deep into the tissues. Under their influence, tissue metabolism increases, the ability of white blood cells to absorb pathogenic microbes increases, calming and analgesic effects are manifested, which helps to stop inflammatory processes.
Famous ancient doctors Hippocrates, Celsus, and Antillus actively used sun baths in the treatment of diseases of the skin, nervous system, rickets, and arthritis. Hippocrates described a method of using infrared rays for the treatment of wounds, ulcers, damage from cold etc.
The human body emits far infrared rays from 3 to 50 micrometers long, most of which correspond to a wavelength approximately equal to 10 microns. Our body, radiating long infrared waves itself, needs constant feeding with long-wave heat. If there is no such recharge taking place, the body quickly weakens, ages, and develops various diseases against the background of deterioration in general health.
Since the constant absorption of infrared rays contributes to the surge of strength and health of our body, people intuitively look for its sources. Special emitters are created for everyday use at work and at home. Their rays pass through the air, almost without heating it, penetrate not only under the human skin, but also deep into the tissues, triggering vital reactions inside the cells. This phenomenon is called "resonant absorption" and applies to all types of cells in the body, including blood.
Far infrared radiation has two types of positive effects on the human body.
The first is associated with a general strengthening effect and is based on strengthening the body's natural resistance to diseases, i.e. increasing immunity.
The second is a direct therapeutic effect for various health problems that can be eliminated with regular use, such as
The table shows the parameters of heated coatings painted with white vinyl finish paint with a coating thickness of 80 microns.
Different sizes of heating coatings have different values of electrical resistance, and as a result, different values of power consumption and different values of the heater surface temperature.
The use of GS PWM power controllers makes it easy to adjust the surface temperature of the heater and the electricity consumed.
Gas boiler heating system is subject to heat loss during various stages of its operation. More importantly, a gas boiler itself is a source of carbon dioxide emission and other air-pollutants.
The result of a gas boiler heating is the convection heating of the air in the room.
Unlike gas boiler heating, an electric infrared heating system has a minimal number of components, which makes it most reliable and safe.
Infrared heating system is highly efficient due to phenomenal performance of infrared radiation, which heats all the objects/surfaces/people in the room directly.
