Heat Shield™ Translucent PT reduces hot metal wall temperature by 27.2 degrees F / 15.1 degrees C and makes building more comfortable.
Synavax™ Mexico Distributor, Omnigenus Energy, was assisting a large manufacturing client with an issue they were having with heat transferring through a large sheet metal wall that divides the main mezzanine from an area that holds six industrial ovens. The heat transfer was causing uncomfortable working conditions. They needed an effective metal building insulation to use on the metal wall.
Heat Shield™ Translucent PT was applied at a 3-coat coverage to a 3×3 meter section of the wall to illustrate the insulation performance. Even before the coating was fully cured measurements showed a reduction of wall surface temperature from 39.9C (103.8F) to 24.8C (76.6F). A reduction of 15.1C / 27.2F. With further reduction expected after the coating cures fully.
Thermal imaging photos were also taken and clearly illustrate the reduction of heat transfer provided by the Synavax™ thermal insulation coating technology. Further application is being completed on two side walls and the ceiling
The final analysis showed that Heat Shield™ Translucent PT significantly lowered the surface temperature of the metal wall while also reducing the heat being generated from the manufacturing side to the office side, solving a critical issue for this client.
