Thiessen Roof

1999
RUSTGRIP ® as a Primer then SUPERTHERM ®

In addition to this major asset literally rusting away, the rust was also acting as a heat sponge and making it extremely uncomfortable for the employees. The roof was rust proofed first with RUSTGRIP ® as a Primer and then Insulated with SUPERTHERM ® (1999 ). After the coating was applied, the building was noticeably cooler and more comfortable, making it a much more productive environment. The staff in the uncoated building wanted theirs done too. SUPERTHERM ® provides the added environmental benefit of a reduced HEAT ISLAND EFFECT

These infrared scans were performed by Mr. Cliff Matheson, President of CM Aquatec, to demonstrate the effectiveness of SUPERTHERM ® in not only keeping the heat OUT in the summer but also holding the heat IN during the winter (November 2000). Even though the SUPERTHERM ® was only coated on the outside and consequently the interior metal substrate would absorb heat , when the heat via backside conduction reached the SUPERTHERM ®, it was bounced back.

As a further service to our valued customer several areas of significant heat loss and energy efficiencies were identified by CM Aquatec

In this particular application the two reflective ceramics are wasted because the source of the heat is via backside conduction and SUPERTHERM ® was applied to the exterior only. If both sides had been coated however in either case all four ceramics would have come into play.

Over studs, ceilings and roofing to block and prevent heat gain or loss

NOTE: In the application shown above on the right hand side, SuperTherm® was applied to the exterior only and the heat source was coming from the interior side. Consequently there was 100% absorbtance of the heat into the interior side of the metal roof. That 100% absorbtance then transferred through the metal via conduction and consquently only the 2 non conductive ceramics contained in SuperTherm® were in effect. The 2 reflective ceramics were not being utilized and consequently SuperTherm® in this orientation is only a better than R9 equivalency in terms of thermal benefit. If SuperTherm® had been applied to the interior side and thus facing the heat source all four ceramics would have been in effect and the R value equivalency would have been better than R19 in terms of thermal benefit. Of course the optimum application of this technology would be to coat both sides of the substrate so that neither side could absorb heat. In that case the thermal benefit would be the equivalent of R28.
