What is the key reason behind the superior thermal insulation properties of SunBless, compared to other brands. Does SunBless contain ceramics mixed in it?
SunBless reflects most of the infrared rays of sunlight before it manages to convert into heat energy. Though the layer of Thermo-Reflective Coating gets hot, it does not transmit heat to the building. The heat energy is prevented by the hollow beads from penetrating its layer, resulting in reduction in the thermal energy getting absorbed into the Thermo-Reflective Coating. It is due to these two effects that SunBless is more effective as a heat insulator, than any other brands, in this category.
Some products have high thermal insulation due to its thick application. What is the thickness of SunBless Thermo-Reflective Coating film after construction?
A film thickness of 0.25 mm (300 g/m2 application) is more than enough for SunBless to be effective as a great thermal insulator. However, as a rule the application should be restricted to a max. of 40 m2 of the area, for every can of the Thermo-Reflective Coating. This makes SunBless an extremely economical and most effective proposition as compared to any other similar brands, available in the world today. Although doubling the film thickness does not necessarily mean double the performance, the experimental results in fact demonstrate that this doubling of Thermo-Reflective Coating thickness to 0.4 mm increases the thermal insulation and heat insulation performance by 1.2 times.
The general view is that painting thermal insulation paint will not reflect the sunlight in winter and it gets cold. SunBless is cooler in the summer, if insisted on insulation performance when it was warm in winter, but since it is not used as interior painting, so just by applying it to an external surface such as a roof, the insulation effect will also increase, is that right?
In case of normal paints, their so-called thermal barrier coating reflects the weak infrared light in winter, hence it makes the building cold in winters. But SunBless has a thermal insulation effect by applying on the roof and the outer wall. Depending on the latitude position of the region, interior application in the north (cold district), and exterior application in the south may be more effective. In addition, SunBless performs as a coating with thermal insulation properties, and not just as only an insulation material.
Apart from thermal insulation, it is claimed that SunBless protects the building infrastructure and the life of the buildings too. How does this work for buildings near the sea coast?
SunBless is able to withstand up to 1,000 hours of salt water spray conforming to the stringent JIS standards of the prestigious Japan Paint Testing Association. SunBless, when applied on the walls and rooftops of buildings in the coastal area can be extremely effective, from protecting the infrastructure and any other surface from the corrosive effects of proximity to the sea unless of course if the surface is in constant contact with the seawater . However, in such cases the SunBless should be applied only after a rust preventive coating is first applied on the ferrous elements of the building infrastructure.
Is colourless or transparent coloured SunBless available?
SunBless comes in a wide range of colourful and aesthetically rich shades. There is no colorless or transparent colour available in SunBless.
Please tell us about the performance difference between the main material (reference color and standard color)
Between the white and light gray shades, there is a difference of about 20% in infrared reflectance, with the light gray shade being lower in reflectance.
In other brands sometimes we have different products for different surfaces such as roofing, wall, ground, etc. Does SunBless cover all these surfaces through a single product? How?
SunBless can be used for any and all types of surfaces including rooftops, outer walls, inner walls and ceilings. For interior flooring, use SunBless only for the carpet underlay (floor) to reduce the floor chill. SunBless should not be used on road surfaces such as asphalt.
Can Sunbless be used as a rust preventive solution?
When applying with an airless gun, what is the recommended caliber?
Please use medium / high viscosity airless paint finisher of around 0.7 mm in diameter.
Does SunBless Thermo-Reflective Coating have any smell?
After application and completely drying, SunBless coating does not give out any odor. While applying SunBless one may smell an odor of acrylic. But because SunBless does not contain toluene, etc, it does not smell like thinner.
Can you apply SunBless on the floor of the factory, workshop etc.?
SunBless may be applied on concrete floors too. As the coating of SunBless is relatively soft, any activities like walking on the floor wearing high-heel shoes or dragging of any sharp and heavy object on the floor, could allow minute dirt particles to enter the coated layer through scratches, thus making the surface appear dirty.
If you walk with ordinary shoes it will not wear out at least for 6 months to one year. However, we do not recommend SunBless for floor application in factories. SunBless may be very effective on floors where people walk without shoes or sandals.
Is it waterproof; is it possible to use it at the bottom of the pool?
Waterproof test for application on the bottom of swimming pools is not yet done. Hence we do not recommend it for this application yet.
