C-COAT™  thermal insulation…more than just “paint”


Save money and time with the power of nanotechnology.

Revolutionary C-COATTMceramic thermo-insulation was developed originally for the space program and now you can use it to enhance the thermal properties of:

Residential buildings

C-COAT™ liquid thermal insulation on both interior and exterior walls will save in overall maintenance and improve residents’ comfort

Commercial buildings and factories

C-COAT™ insulation can help save on running costs due to less demand for heating and air conditioning. Condensation and radiation properties reduce maintenance.

Industrial pipelines, tanks, cisterns and more

Insulate even the hardest-to-reach areas. C-COAT™ liquid heat insulation can be applied at high temperatures – no need to stop production

Innovative C-COATTM
The thermo-physical properties of C-COATTM differ substantially from those of traditional heat insulators.

The C-COATTM high-tensile, extra-fine coating formula consists of three parts: a water-based base, a large number of high-quality glass/ceramic air-filled microspheres and a reinforcing agent to provide elasticity

C-COAT™ Formula

The remarkable C-COAT™ formula allows for consistent distribution of the microspheres within the base and elastic polymers to allow for smooth, hassle-free application.

Use C-COATTM liquid insulation is ideal either to supplement traditional insulation methods or as a substitute. C-COATTM is an alternative, high-quality insulation for use in various areas and for multiple surface types that is particularly useful for high-temperature or hard to reach areas.

Use C-COATTM effectively for:

  • Walls of residential, commercial and factory buildings, both external and internal.
  • Metal hardware, hangars, garages, supporting structures, bridge pillars.
  • Pipelines for heating systems, steam and gas, air-conditioning systems, cold water (as C-COATTM reduces or prevents condensation) and, last but not least, oil, both for underground and above ground
  • Water heaters, boilers and heat exchangers.
  • Hot chemical mixing tanks.
  • Water tanks, chemical reservoirs, cisterns, cold storage.
  • Transportation vehicles, internal structural components, engine room, roofing.
  • Military equipment and other special-purpose structures.
  • Road and railway tankers used for transporting different types of liquids.
  • Ship’s powerhouse, board and internal structural components.
  • Railway locomotives, wagon insulation, etc.

Energy savings in buildings

Applying 1.0 mm of C-COAT™ could help you save up to 30% of energy budget

C-COAT™ is unique, with 4-in-1 functionality:

Test results comparing C-COATTM with classic Insulation for metal roofs.

We made three sample boxes, with a plain uninsulated roof used as the benchmark, then a roof with classic insulation material (130mm glass wool R3.0) and a roof coated with C-COATTM  (one layer of about 0.5mm and the second sample with two layers of about 1.2-1.5mm thick)

                 Summary 1: The C-COATTM product at a thickness of 0.5mm performed marginally better than the classic R3.0 130mm insulation across the tests.

                Summary 2: The C-COATTM product at a thickness of 1.5mm performed significantly better than the classic R3.0 130mm insulation across the tests.

Energy savings in industry


C-COAT™ saves approx. 70% of energy loss and protects equipment

C-COAT™ helps you comply with: Work Health & Safety regulations


 Two identical mobile container offices 20-foot type with A/C units were used to compare results.

                The first is a standard unit and the second has C-COATTM of about 1-1.5mm thick layer applied with an airless spray gun (Graco 795).

                The ambient temperature was 38oC and the surface temperature was 41.5oC.

                In the standard office unit, the installed A/C unit could not reduce the indoor temperature below 33oC and used about 1.0KW of electricity.

                In the unit using C-COATTM insulation coat, the indoor temperature was 24oC and A/C unit used about 0.6KW of electricity.

                So, the addition of C-COATTM achieved 40% of electricity savings and an almost 10oC cooler indoor temperature.



Hot plate test with half of it covered with about 1.5mm of C-COATTM.

                Surface temperature has been reduced significantly.

                Water bubble is boiling and evaporating on the non-covered side where the one on the C-COATTM insulated side is not.

                The test shows the effects of C-COATTM when used on surfaces exposed to high temperatures such as steam pipes, boilers and other industrial equipment.

                C-COAT™ reduces the surface temperature of high-heat objects, protects people and equipment and helps you comply with Work Health & Safety regulations.



C-COATTM also helps prevent condensation.

                One side of a glass bottle filled with ice water was coated with about 0.5mm of C-COATTM

                The bottle was placed in sunlight.

                Note the effects on both sides.

                Over the C-COATTM section, no condensation appears.

C-COATTM– is a liquid waterproofing and thermal insulation coating made from microscopic, ceramic balls and air filled silicon balls. The ceramic balls are suspended in water, latex and acrylic polymers mixture.

The heat transfer coefficient of C-COAT™ (1.29 – 2.2 W/m² K) is much lower than for other construction and thermal insulation materials (9.0-23.0 W/m² K).
The thermal insulating effect of C-COAT™ applied in a 1.0mm thick layer (2 x 0.5mm) gains 40% and is the equivalent of that of 100mm of rockwool or 100mm of polyurethane foam.

What is ceramic insulating coating?

Many terms and expressions today are used synonymously with “liquid thermal insulation”: thermal paint, heat paint, liquid thermal coating, liquid heat insulation, extra-thin insulation, thin film coating, thermal insulator, and more.

Ceramic coatings rely on air-filled microspheres for insulating properties.
