INSUL-3K™ is an insulating high-tech synthetic silicate ceramic solid microspheres additive for paints and coatings. The microspheres in INSUL-3K™ are similar to the material of which the space shuttle tiles are made, giving it unique properties that reflect and dissipate heat away from the coated surface. Since INSUL-3K™ are round spheres, they have the lowest surface area to volume ratio of any other shape, therefore they can increase volume loading capacity thus increasing solids, reducing V.O.C.’s and reduced shrinkage in the paint or coating film upon drying. Because of the high strength of the silicate ceramic microspheres, INSUL-3K™ also increases the abrasion and scrub resistance of your paint or coating. INSUL-3K™ is safe, non-toxic and easy to use, making it ideal for everyone from home owners to large commercial facility managers.
