i was thinking this might draw more interests due to its huge possible upsides ...i would really like if some people could just look up this paint and see if there is any truth to it

Wasn't there a few products discussed here before about this kind of coating? I thought it was for the interior of the roof.

Just ran into a potential customer last week that owns a 1933 beach house. He said there was never any insulation in the walls because it was built as just a beach house. Having insulation blown in behind the lath would be destructive and very expensive so this thread is timely for me. I think I will make a pitch for this nano-technology paint as an alternative.

I would like to find out more as well.

from all I have read, the reports on this paint are lil if no insulating properties to this paint. READ "sham".
Could you translate that for me?

- You have read independent reports other than the manufacturer produced?
- "lil if no insulating properties to this paint" Does this mean there are no insulating properties?
- READ "sham" Are you saying that its a sham or that the reports say its a sham or are we supposed to just read the word sham?

I'm definitely interested in this. The HO with the beach house I was hoping to sell this to was in the process of having a closed-loop HVAC system installed in their 1st home. He said this was their big expense for the year because they were taking advantage of new tax credits being offered to upgrade efficiency.

I wonder if this product will qualify?

everything I have read and researched about this product says it doesn't actually "insulate" like they claim. That lighter colors were able to lessen the temp of the siding, but that is what regular light colored paint does anyway.

I was thinking trying to sell them on interior application this fall. The "testimonials" on their site mentioned that it was used as a barrier of sort by coating the interior side of exterior walls. That would be a nice sale since if they bite it would essentially mean a full interior repaint. It could possibly fall under the tax credit for $1500

let us know if it does :) E barrier is more of a radiant barrier. If you are going that route then get Lo/MIT or HeatBloc75

these "I think" would be more for what would/could get the energy savings rebate.. I don't know for certain, but think they could because they actually are what is defined as a radiant barrier by having an E value of .25 and lower. I am uber tired. If I don't make sence it is because of this..

If anyone would like to call, I'd be happy to answer any questions you have. Francesca Crolley, VP Operations & Marketing for Industrial Nanotech: 800-767-3998.

I don't like to market on message boards - it's not the proper place in my opinion, I would just like to clear up any confusion by saying that our product is not a ceramic (or glass bead)-based coating - which it is sometimes confused with.
