Barrier Coat – Radiant Barrier Paint – 1 Gallon Description
Size Name:1 Gallon Barrier Coat is an insulating, radiant barrier paint made of ground metallic aluminum pigment and blended into an acrylic resin along with Hy-Techâs ThermaCelsâ¢, blend of insulating microspheres. Barrier Coat is designed for use as a radiant barrier coating for attics. It can also be applied to sidewalls to prevent âin-the-wall’ condensation buildup due to water vapor transmission. The elimination of ‘in-the-wall’ condensation improves existing insulation properties by keeping the insulation dry. Wall vapor barriers also eliminate peeling paint caused by vapor transfer from inside to outside wall surfaces. Tests show that radiant barriers can reduce summer ceiling heat gains by up to 42% compared to an attic with the same insulation level and no radiant barrier. Barrier Coat boasts a pure 0% VOC pigment, is water-based, and environmentally friendly.
