Keva Industries introduces Keva Energy Saving Paint based on acrylic coating



Published January 17, 2011
Keva Industries has developed Keva Energy Saving Paint, an innovative energy solution insulative paint which utilizes the very latest ceramic micro-spheres almost similar to that used by NASA (USA) for use on the space shuttle tiles. It is an elastomeric, thermal insulation, water proof, energy saving and water based acrylic coating. Two coats are advised for best results. It can be used on walls, roofs, ceilings, metal buildings, cold storage facilities. Insulative paint is a paint containing ceramic micro-spheres that have the same heat reflective properties as the tiles on the space shuttle. These ceramic micro-spheres, with the consistency of talcum powder, make the paint insulating.

Keva Energy Saving Paint has tiny ceramic micro-spheres of 30-100 microns in diameter which create a thermal barrier. They refract, reflect and dissipate heat. The tiny microspheres act as highly efficient thermal barriers, so that when the coating dries, they form a barrier against heat transfer.

The layer is created by the microspheres coming closer together as the coating dries, until they eventually touch each other forming a single, very thin, thermal barrier. This barrier reflects, refracts and dissipates heat, thereby keeping heat in a structure during the cold months and out of the structure during the hot months. As they are true microspheres, the ceramic particles do not add weight but increase the strength of the coating. This helps to keep down the weight loading on the structure being coated.

Having developed Keva Energy Saving Paint, a thermal insulation coating, Mr. Karan Goel, CEO-Keva Industries further stepped for Solar Reflectivity test, Infrared Emissivity test & Thermal Modeling Calculations with the support of Dr. Heinz Poppendiek of the San Diegobased Geoscience Ltd. (USA), which is a service and R&D company specializing in heat transfer, fluid flow, mass transfer, micro meteorology, biophysics, the measurement of thermal, mechanical and fluid properties, engineering design, system fabrication and product evaluation.

As per Geoscience Ltd. testing results, Infrared Emissivity was notified as 0.90 under room temperature (Measurement method: ASTM E-408 C-1371) and Solar Reflectivity was notified as 0.853 (Avg. 0.87, 0.84 & 0.85) (Measurement method: ASTM E-1918) Energy Saving Solution.
According to Keva Industries, Keva Energy Saving Paint are suitable for application to the following Properly Prepared Surfaces: Asphalt Roofs, Mobile Homes, Tile Roofs, Concrete Roofs, Metal Roofs, Conventional Flat Roofs on Homes, Apartments, Hospitals, Commercial Buildings, Schools, Government Buildings, Hotels, Motels, Mobile Homes etc.
