Graphite additive GST-055RP is a specially treated natural graphite that reflects infrared radiation or radiant heat and allows you to create a heat-insulating coating with a thickness of only 80-100 microns. Any paint or water-based primer can be used as the basis for such a coating, for example, the most affordable and common white acrylic primer.
Just add the additive to the paint and mix thoroughly.
Graphite additive particles have high reflective properties in the thermal infrared range, similar to aluminum or copper foil. At the same time, unlike foil, GST-055RP additive-based coatings are vapor-permeable or breathable, which is very important for human comfort and to prevent the formation of moisture inside the house. The additive-based coating has a grey or dark grey color and can be easily painted with any finishing paint.
Graphite additive allows you to dramatically reduce the thermal conductivity (λ) of the acrylic primer, up to 0.022 W/ m K.
The price of GST-055RP starts from £28 per 1 kg, depends on the order volumes.
Graphite additive GST-055RP is specially processed natural graphite that reflect infrared radiation or radiant heat and significantly improve the insulating properties of the foam, providing a 25% higher R-value than that of traditional white expanded polystyrene of the same thickness. Closed-cell polystyrene foam insulation boards keep air in pockets inside each cell. The air trapped in these cells is a poor conductor of heat and therefore reduces the thermal conductivity of thermal insulation.
Grey styrofoam slabs contain high purity graphite particles embedded in their cellular structure, which give them reflective properties and a characteristic dark grey color. When radiant heat passes through graphite insulation, it is reflected from the surface of graphite particles hundreds of times, which significantly slows down heat transfer through the foam plate and makes it more energy efficient.
Graphite additive reduces the thermal conductivity to 0.021 W/mK, which is an improvement over standard polystyrene foam boards.
The price of GST-055RF additive starts from £14 per 1 kg, depends on the order volumes.
G INSULATE is a smart insulating paint based on high-quality water borne, cross-linking acrylic resin containing Natural Exfoliated Graphite.
The paint provides a reliable coating to ensure a comfortable temperature in winter or summer, reducing energy consumption by up to *21%.
With good adhesive properties, it can be applied under all commonly used emulsion paints, concrete, bricks, clean organic plasters and wood.
It has high reflective properties in the infrared range and provides indoor temperature stability in both hot and cold weather.
The stability of the coating in various environments was tested and confirmed at the Quantum Metrology Institute NPL.
