Media reports and articles can be misleading and consequently damaging to quality products such as our quality coatings. It’s important that these articles are pulled apart and the truth is explained and statements are based on facts, research, testing and results.
SPI Coatings (Manufacturer) and NEOtech Coatings (Australian Distributor) have outstanding, world leading coatings that shield, protect and insulate with proven testing, ASTM standards and real industry results and these broad, misleading statements are debunked and refuted here.
While it is easy to generalise the entire industry, knowing that SPI Coatings products are tested, certified and stand heads-and-shoulders apart from its competitors…its a matter of don’t tarnish all products with the same brush.
Here at NEOtech Coatings we experience many comments with SUPER THERM® that are ill-informed and misleading because people don’t understand the high performance nature of the one and only SUPER THERM® ceramic insulation coating. tsimshianman‘s response below on the blog was excellent and it’s important that people understand ‘there are numerous knock off products which are the ones you hear about making wild performance claims. All you need to do is ask for the testing which supports the claims.’ SUPER THERM® is tested, certified and proven. Read the response >

They also say it will lower your energy bill by reflecting the sun away from your house. Read our response >
Can anyone tell me if they consider SUPER THERM an insulation or a paint? I am confused. I posted a video on my blog if you want to see it. I need to understand if this is worth the type of money they are asking for this type of technology.
I plan on using this to insulate ISBU shipping containers. Read our response >
Here at Efficiency Matrix we are not rocket scientists but some of the claims/assumptions out on the internet, really needs to be straightened out, and explained in a manner where, most people will be able to understand.
Lets start firstly with an explanation of what the building envelope actually is: It includes the external walls, ceiling, and floor that connects you to the outside environment.
Considering that reflective paint works by deflecting radiant visual energy, we decided to model radiant energy transfer comparisons using different building envelope products. Read our response >
