HERE'S HOW

HEATSHIELD-R20 RADIANT BARRIER PAINT ADDITIVE
REDUCES COOLING & HEATING COST

HEATSHIELD-R20: Is a very fine white powder that is a combination of selected hollow ceramic microspheres that reflect and dissipate heat.

HEATSHIELD-R20 When mixed with any paint or coating transforms it into a radiant barrier coating which will reflect and dissipate radiant heat, reducing heat transfer through roofs,attics,exterior & interior walls, ceilings, or any other paintable surface that absorbs heat.
Radiant barriers work by reducing heat transfer by thermal radiation. These materials when applied to buildings reduce summer heat gain and winter heat loss.

This similar ceramic technology was used to dissipate heat from the Space Shuttle upon atmospheric re-entry,preventing the shuttle from burning.


THE REATION OF THE HUMAN BODY TO RADIANT HEAT
People feel warmer in the presence of radiant energy and cooler in its absence. Science refers to this phenomenon as mean radiant temperature. Stand in the shade of a tree on a sunny, but cool day; then step into the sunlight.Your body instantly becomes warmer in the sun, more comfortable. Stepping back into the shade, you are cool; yet, the change in the actual air temperature between shade and sunny areas is negligible.

The human body feels warmer because radiant energy causes molecular friction within the skin and body. When this friction takes
place, it creates heat that makes you warmer. In the absence of friction you are cooler because of the lack of molecular friction.
But only your body is affected, not the air surrounding it. So, in winter you may feel as warm in a 65 degree room as you normally
would feel in a room of 72 degrees F Users of Heatshield-R20 Coatings are saving substantial amounts on their energy bills.
The thermostat can be set down 5 to 8 degrees Fahrenheit in winter and up the same amount on the air conditioner in summer and yet the comfort level of the human body can remain the same. Heatshield-R20 ceramic coatings raise the mean radiant temperature in buildings in winter and lower it in summer.
